To Know God and to Make Him Known

To Grow in Christ

Do you want your children to grow in Christ? I think we can all agree that we want our kids to grow in their relationship with the Lord. Recently God challenged me to think through what I am asking of Him when I pray that Jonah, Anderson, and Katelyn will grow in Christ. What does "to grow in Christ" really mean? What does it look like? The answer can vary greatly, but what I felt God impress upon me is that I have to recognize that growth is not always easy. In fact it can be downright difficult and painful at times. I want to see the fruit of the growth, but I admit that I struggle in the midst of the growth spurt. Growing in Christ involves having relationship with Him, and we know that relationships can be filled with both challenges and joys. As our kids navigate their relationship with God and who He is to them, we can trust that growth will occur. It may not always look like we think it should, but we can trust our Heavenly Father to work the challenges of growing for the good of our children and for the glory of the Lord.
