What did you give up?

I start here because stats say this ought to start every serious redemption story. In some instances, children of the redeemed are expected to instantly have their parents’ faith. Although the power to become Sons of God is given to anyone who believes not their children, at least powerful parents train their children for power.

But let’s regress from the fact that the devil is using the media, government, money and things to make raising a stainless still child softly hard. Let’s return to the parents and the question:

What did you give up?

For some of you, it was a habit. Some of you left people, homes, towns, jobs and even yourselves to follow Jesus.

Heard a pastor say, the pastors shouldn’t serve at the expense of each of their families. I say… no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age. [Mark 10:29-30]

But that’s just the gospel; choice, conviction and convertion.

If we don’t remember why we gave up all we had and were for this race, its possible we don’t even remember its a race anymore and  have forgotten that Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. [2John 1:9]

Our children need us to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ [2 Peter 3:18] so that they can do so as well.

You are God’s temple so… Keep what God graced you to give up, given up on. But…

What did you give up?
