The Scripture Lady is happy to provide articles for Sunday School teachers to encourage children’s workers in their God-given calling.
Teaching Sunday School has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. After 30 years, I still wake up on Sunday excited to share the message God has given me. The Lord is the one who has maintained this level of joy in my life, but He’s done so through various means – prayer, a love for children and lots of hard work.
As the founder of ScriptureLady.com, I want to encourage all who browse this website to know and understand that being a Sunday School teacher or Christian children’s worker is an honor. You have had many great predecessors go before you: Corrie Ten Boom, John D. Rockefeller, President Jimmy Carter, D.L. Moody and Henrietta Mears, just to name a few.
But is children’s ministry still a valid institution or has it begun to decline along with the morality of mankind? I believe this question can be answered on two levels, spiritually and practically.
Spiritually speaking, the Bible promises that as we approach the Lord’s return, the days will grow darker as in the time of Noah. The world’s moral decline is not a surprise to God, nor should it be a surprise to us. It is getting harder and harder to speak the truth of God without being sneered or scowled at. Many of the children in our children’s ministries come from families that have little understanding of the Bible and God Himself.
To be called into a children’s ministry is not for the faint of heart. A Christian children’s worker of today is definitely going to coming across some spiritual challenges that were not as prominent as in “the old days.” And even though statistics show that church membership is down, children’s ministries are needed more than ever. Christian classrooms are becoming more and more filled with spiritually hungry children. What a blessing it is that we get to be the ones who get to “feed” them! Yes! Children’s ministry is still valid – more than ever!
Practically speaking, a Christian children’s worker must be well prepared and trained to meet the needs of the children God has placed within their care. But, thankfully, never before has existed so much great training for the Christian children’s worker as there is today. With the advent of computer technology, sites like our own ScriptureLady.com and many others exist for the encouragement, edification and training of the Christian teacher. It’s exciting to be a part of God’s continuing purpose of reaching the lost, especially children!
