'CATCH THEM YOUNG'

"And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus" - 2 Timothy 3:15
.
Children are young human being below the age of puberty, that is between age one to twelve years. This is when they can be thoroughly groomed in the word of God and in they way they should go (Prov. 22:6). 
.
There are two kinds of children - biological children and spiritual children. It is good to teach your biological children about the holy scripture because it would help them grow in the knowledge of God and His will. 
.
Spiritual children, however, are young converts who have just given their lives to Christ. They can be biological children or younger or older adults. They too must know the holy scripture from their young days in faith. Peter called them newborn babes (1 Peter 2:2).
.
Catching spiritual children young is very important as it plays a major role in discipleship. Jesus spent three and half years discipling His disciples before He ordained them. They were first with Him before He send them out (Mark 3:13-15).
.
Do you know the scripture? If you don't know the scripture, you'll be easily deceived by the waves of doctrines flying around in the society. 
.
Becoming a disciple of Christ isn't the same thing as being a foundational member or going through the membership class of your church. 
.
What have you known from a child? Have you given your life to Christ since and you know nothing about Him and His word? Study to show yourself approved unto God so that you won't be ashamed and end up becoming a fool in life.
.
Remember, if you do not desire the word of God, you cannot grow hereby.
