Bring The Children

Jesus quickly said in Matthew 19:14, when his disciples prevented the children from coming to Jesus so that he may lay his hands on them and pray for them, “…but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” My parents enrolled me in the Boys’ Brigade when I was ten, and this group helped shape my life in my Christian journey. The object of the Boys’ Brigade is very ambitious, and I dare say that the group has never departed from it. The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.” The Girls also have what they call “The Aim”, and it’s very forthright: To help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through self-control, reverence and a sense of responsibility, to find true enrichment of life.”

Indeed, we all want our children to exhibit these traits and be able to influence other children, which will go a long way to make our society a better place devoid of all anti-social 

behaviours we see around us. 

God wants the children to come to him unhindered, and the little we can do as Christians, parents, grandparents, family friends, etc., is to introduce the children to these Christian groups, get them occupied with the things of God and get their steps ordered in the Lord. “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”(Proverbs 22:6). This group will be a great support to children as they grow because a child trained in the house of God can influence his peers to come along and experience the love of Christ.

We have had two meetings with leaders of the Brigade in West London, and they are very willing to support us in establishing one in St. Anselm Church. Let us tell people about it, take some fliers and distribute them to parents and children you come across, and be an agent of evangelism. The children are the definition of the future.
