Matthew 19:14-15 & Mark 10:16 – “… Let the children come to Me and do not forbid them; for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. And Jesus took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.”
We see that the PLACE for the children was WITH Jesus. God Himself wanted the pour into the next gen-eration. It’s always Gods plan for His power to be with us! God calls us all to greater works, and we receive that call and impartation by the laying on of hands. (1 Timothy 4:14, 2Timothy 1:6) When Jesus was laying hands on the children, He was blessing them and giving them a portion of Himself.
God’s design is for the children, the parents, and the grandparents to work together! The way to empower ministry is to give what you have to the next generation. The laying of hands is an act of impartation. It can release blessing, anointing, increase of faith, the Holy Spirit, whatever you have to give! We are to be vessels filled up by God and then poured out! (Philippians 2:17, 2Corinthians 4:7)
We, as Lighthouse, are fortunate to be able to host Bible Day Camp for free! The Great Commission starts with reaching our community. It is an opportunity for all to hear the gospel and for us to impart what we have to the children of Sonoma!
Church! Let’s keep our vessels full and our hands ready. We lift the name of Jesus over our city and agree with the Word of God - LET the children COME! Let us impart to the children attending BDC the Word if God, a relationship with Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit to be transformed! Lighthouse - We reach the kids ...we reach the whole family! God is in the business of restoring families!
In His Love,
