Sticky Faith – Trust vs. Obeying God
In the second installment of the Sticky Faith discussion, the authors wanted to focus on the difference between having our children obeying Christ’s word and trusting Christ. Taking a snippet out of the book, “Trusting God is the call of the gospel, as we’ve seen in Galatians 5. Obedience, then, is our response as we trust. In other words, God makes it clear that he is not interested in obedience geared merely to obtain his favor, yet obeying him is important.”

At first that statement maybe a bit confusing. As we spoke in my previous blog entry, trusting Christ builds one of the cornerstones of faith. The authors are looking to develop an established connection between our children and Christ.

One example that can be terrifying for parents and children is dealing with bullies in school. Bullying has directly led to suicides, worsening grades, stunting social development and much more.

One benefit of trusting Christ and instilling this belief in your children will be, Christ will never fail them and will protect our children, even when we as parents can’t. We need to help our children to respond with love during these difficult circumstances and to trust Christ with their struggles. By doing so, we start them on the road of sticky faith by placing their yoke of burden on Christ and accepting Christ’s yoke because it’s easy to bear.

Matthew 11:29-30, “Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.”
