When it comes to handing down confident faith, there are several things we want to accomplish. First, of course, is to bring the ones we love to where they are able to make the choice to believe in Jesus. This means we have to be ready at all times to teach them the truth about Who God is and how they are able to believe in Him and confidently trust His Word to be true.Secondly, we want to help the ones we love learn how they are able to know, love, walk and talk with God for themselves - they must have a walk of their own with God for this to happen.
Third, we want to be certain we help them learn about the things God has done in the past, see how He is at work now, so they will know Who He is and remember how He has shown His love to us and to the generations who came before, so they are able to believe He will continue to be faithful in the future - and will be the people who hand down confident faith to generations yet unborn.
These are the three essential parts of what we must do when it comes to handing down confident faith, if we want the ones we love to walk with God now, as they grow up and throughout their lives. There are many benefits when this happens, such as they have a strong close walk with God, they are able to hand confident faith to the generations yet to come and they will know how to lead the church in the truth of God's Word.
So, hand down confident faith - it matters now and for generations yet to come.
