Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Spiritually Homeschooling Our Children


2 Timothy 1:5
I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. [emphasis added]

What does the statement:
"Home school your children, spiritually." ... say to you?

Beth Moore is the author of that statement from her Believing God Bible Study video session. I remember hearing her talk about it the first time I did Believing God. Now, after 4 years of teaching that Bible study over and over again - this statement never gets old. She reminds us that we have to be very careful not to allow others to raise our children for us. While it is good to take our children to church, SS or send them to Christian Schools [as I did mine] whether lower level or even Christian colleges, homeschooling them spiritually is a parent's job [and often a grandparent's as well]. Beth makes a statement in that series that I believe is worth repeating here:

Loved this post and I really think the lesson is valuable to parents who either home school their children or send them to public school, our responsibility still lies with us.

I LOVE this! Beth Moore's "Believing God" study was the very first one, of hers, that I did. It was life-changing!

I am such a strong believer of being the one to teach my children about God's Word. Yes, they go to Sunday school every week, but I still believe that it is my responsibility to "home school them spiritually." Such a great word here.

Blessings to you today!
