BORN INTO THE FAMILY

A child is usually born into a family.

The very survival of a new bon baby rest on the care and nature of the entire family. The human baby is the most helpless baby. It depends on others for a considerable period of time.

  1. What are the needs of a child that must be provided by others?
  2. Who are the principal care providers for a new born baby?
  3. What is the fate of a baby without care?

We are all like banana; we only thrive as long as we remain in the bunch or family.

 

  1. As in the natural so is the spiritual birth
  2. What is spiritual birth, when is someone born of the spirit? – John 3:3-8
  3. What are the new Christians called? 1John 2:1, 18, 2, 1 John 3:7, 18

 

  1. 3. What do they need to grow?
  • Peter 2:2, Hebrew 10:25 and Acts 2:46-47

Spiritual children are born into a family. The family of God on earth is called church. Here, we are fed with the milk of the word of God. We are directed, trained and encouraged by other brothers and sisters. We hear the testimonies of the older Christians on the faithfulness of God and share the hope of eternal life together.

2 Peter 3: 18 – We grow in grace, character, knowledge and faith.

 

  1. What happens to a baby without care and does not grow?
  • Ephesians 4:11-14, Heb 5:2 … tossed to and fro
  • Carried about by every wind of doctrine
  • Deceived by the trick, deceit of men
  • Unproductive
  • Not capable of taking care of himself and others

You will grow in the church. The pastors, elders, teachers will love to receive you on Sunday. Join the church and grow. Like the banner, we thrive in the bunch. Hebrew 6:9 – We expect growth, maturity, steadfastness.

  1. Read and discuss; Psalm 92:12:14, 1 Timothy 4:13

 

CONCLUSION: 1 Timothy 4:13

  1. I pray that you examine your doctrine & the teachings your Pastor provides. One point: Because the Lord gifts us with our precious children, no man or WOMAN is allowed to determine that a child is not worthy of the love & care of their family….even if some evil demon inspired “prophetess” makes false claims that a child is a WITCH! You, ms Helen, will be held to a much higher standards than others because of your status as a ‘leader & teacher of the Gospel’. That is Biblical. When you stand before the Father will you be faultless in that regard??? ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

    I am aware that this comment will most likely be deleted & ignored. That’s ok though because the God I serve is powerful & the message will still get to the ears of the person it’s intended to reach.

    1. This ministryis blessed by God with various gifts not just the gift of discernment of spirit only.The end point of this is to deliver men from the captivity of the devil and bring them unto the marvellous light of Jesus Christ.Through this ministry lots of souls have been saved, healed,and delivered by God’s power and great mercies.I pray that oneday you will have an encounter with Jesus. thank you.
