Everybody has something that makes them tick, something that motivates them.
For some people it is sports or video games. For other people it is making money. Many people are into collecting things such as baseball cards, comic books or antiques.
- What is it that motivates God?
- What does God the Father live for?
- What is His nature and motivation?
Father God wants a relationship with His children and that is what compelled Him to create the universe. It is why Jesus came to earth. It was what motivated His three years of ministry to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. It was the heart of His ministry training with His disciples as He commanded them, “To follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.” It was also the reason Jesus died on the cross (Christ died for all the ungodly) and rose again from the dead, and it is the primary thrust of Christianity today.
Jesus said, “The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
One of the greatest things we can teach our kids is what the mission of Christ is. Many times, kids do not know how God sees the lost or the unchurched.
There are two reasons for this:
- They don’t have an understanding of how hopeless it is to live without Christ.
- They are taught to avoid and stay away from “bad kids,” kids that are unchurched.
The only way that church kids can catch a passion for souls is by the Holy Spirit. As leaders we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will give our kids a heart of those who are lost and unchurched.
The other thing we can do is to teach on the Father’s heart for those who are unchurched. This begins with us.
We need to see the lost the same way the Father does – they are the precious fruit of the Earth.
One way that I teach kids about the heart of the Father, for the lost, is through two parables in the Matthew, Chapter 13 – the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl of Great Price.
This is exactly why the Lord instructed us to create the curriculum, Finding God.
- First and foremost, it will give your kids a heart and passion for lost people.
- It will each your kids what to do when God seems far away.
- It will teach your kids to hear from God and make wise choices for themselves instead of always depending on Mom and Dad.
