Sam Osborne commences a new series on biblical priorities for children's work in the church.

The Gospel is central

The Gospel is a message to be believed, but also it's a message that makes a difference to everything – including children's ministry.

  1. Each child needs to hear the Gospel, to be saved. Will the children you serve hear the good news of what God has done in Jesus?
  2. Do your volunteers know the Gospel and seek to live the Gospel in their daily lives?

If so, then what a privilege for the children. Praise God!

It's the word of God that will drive the work of God

As we teach children, so God is at work accomplishing His purposes in them. The word of God and prayer go together. For the children this means:

  1. Each child needs to hear the Bible taught.
  2. Each child should be prayed for regularly.

For your volunteers this means:

  1. They must know that God accomplishes His purposes through His word.
  2. Each one should express their dependence on God by praying.

What your children's ministry needs is a focus on the word of God and prayer. They shape everything.
