Parenting Discipleship

By Craig Caster

APPENDIX B

COMMITMENT TO CHRIST

Perhaps you have struggled in some areas of parenting and have come to realize that your struggles are a result of a weak or inconsistent spiritual life. God promises to bless, encourage, and strengthen us as we submit to His lordship in our life.

Psalm 29:11 “The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.”

Write a prayer of commitment to the Lord, to put Him first in your life, and asking Him to help you parent the gifts (children) He has given you.

Perhaps you have never surrendered your life to Christ. Know that God loves you and has provided the way for you to have a relationship with Him. You must simply,

  1. Recognize and admit that you are a sinner.

Romans 3:23 “...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’ ”

  1. Believe that Jesus paid for your sins.

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ”

Acts 4:12 “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

  1. Confess your sins to Jesus.

Acts 3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

Romans 10:9 “...that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

  1. Receive the gift of salvation.

John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Repeat the following prayer,

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sin. Thank you for dying on the cross for me and paying the price for my sin. Please come into my heart. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and help me to be your disciple. Thank you for forgiving me and coming into my life. Thank you that I am now a child of God and that I am going to heaven.” Amen
