Grace Can Change Your Child's Life
The Old Manna of "just enough" from the Wilderness has ceased to The Fresh Fruit of "more than enough" from the Promised Land of Canaan.

Joshua 5:12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

 Why is it that the "Heart Transformation" treatment model works so well in changing the lives of troubled loved-ones? Because any home that incorporates the culture of daily study and application of God's Word will produce diligent students of God's Word. It is not enough to tell your children to study God's Word, you must create a culture in your home that hearing God's Word is the norm. Obviously parents have to begin by role-modeling the importance of daily Bible devotion and studies.

Psalm 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Learning the Word of God daily is the secret within the Heart Transformation treatment program.  The more I study God's Word, the more faith is produced to access that Grace necessary for me to have victory over sin and to live godly to overcome it. Praise God!

Romans 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

The same gift of Grace that brought us salvation also teaches us to live soberly, righteous and godly while we are in the world.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,  12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

We cannot take any credit when we live soberly, godly and righteously or else it is no longer Grace because it is the gift of God, and not of ourselves lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Whenever you pressure, whether implied or expressed, your children to change their ways and attitude, without empowering them with the culture of daily Bible study, and the understanding that it is God's Grace alone that can change their lives, you set them up for failure.

The only way to change a heart is to instill the "seed" of God's Word into it. A seed has the nature of the thing it came from. The nature of God that you possess will dominate your life once instilled. Its the nature of an orange seed to produce an orange tree. Jesus is the Word of God. Once the Word of God takes root in your child's life, she will automatically take on the nature of Christ.

You can dress up a mule to look like a race horse and yo u can train it to carry a jockey but take that mule to the race track and he will still be a stubborn mule.

Once a person has the nature of Christ in them, they may try to go back to their old vomit but it won't be the same because of their new nature.

Start today and begin changing the culture of your home. Blessings to you and your loved-ones. It would encourage me if you could share your thoughts about this blog.
