Teach Them: The Lord Jesus Christ

1 Min Read

There is something beautiful about talking to children about Jesus. Painting a portrait of our Savior from the Word of God brings Him to life in the eyes of our children and, we must pray, in their hearts. Many such portraits appear in Scripture (to name only a few: Pss. 23; 45; 63; 72; 89:19–29; 106; 145; 147). Dwelling on the beauty of Jesus impacts our hearts, as well. We should never tire of telling little ones about Jesus, from His lowly birth to His exaltation at the right hand of the Father in heaven to His glorious second coming.

Jesus taught the Emmaus travelers those truths. He started with Moses, went through all the prophets (and later, with the disciples, the Psalms, as well), "expounding unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Luke 24:27, 44). What a joy it is to talk to our children about who Jesus is, what He has done, and what He is willing to do. There is no end to teaching this subject to our children.
