In a Christian family this can be the most heartbreaking of things we’ll ever hear from our adult kids. You raised them having family devotions, praying, and pointing them to Christ at every turn but for whatever reason they’re rejecting it now – even after making a profession of faith. What do we do? First, we can’t blame ourselves. Scripture tells us to train up a child in the way of the Lord and to be faithful. Can we save our kids? No. We plant seeds and water them, but God provides the increase. Don’t lose hope. Pray that God will fill our kids with the Holy Spirit and bring them to Himself. We’ve got to love them to Christ, not shame them. That’s why the Bible says speak the truth in love.
Suggested Reading: I Corinthians 3:6-9, Ephesians 4:15
