Do you ever feel like you have taught your kids so much mental knowledge of the Bible that you wonder what to do next? Well, what they might need is to see the joy of the gospel in action.
People can have a lot of information about Jesus, but without experiencing a relationship with Jesus, they may not truly be able to understand the gospel. This is where singing praise songs and expressing other evidences of a joyful relationship with Christ can go a long way.
How Singing Praise Songs can Share the Joy of Christ with Your Kids
There may be no better witness to the glory of God living in us than when we are joyful and happy. St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Preach the Gospel always—use words if necessary.”
If we want our kids to cultivate their own interest in and relationship with Jesus Christ, it really doesn’t matter what we teach them if they never see us actually enjoying life.
One way to keep the light of Christ glowing in us—even in these chaotic and fast paced times—is to make it a habit of singing praise songs out loud during the course of our day. It’s infectious. Not only are there spiritual truths behind them, there are scientific ones too. Those chemical benefits to your mind and body will speak spiritual volumes to your kids.
