Lead Them to the Cross

"The gospel seems irrelevant to the smug child who isn't required to do anything he does not want to do. It seems irrelevant to the arrogant child who has been told all his life how wonderful he is.

But the gospel has great relevance for the child who is persuaded that God calls him to do something that is not native to his sinful heart ~ to joyfully and willingly submit to the authority  of someone else! Only the power of the gospel can give a willing heart and the strength to obey."
