Missional Children's Ministry | Live God's Way

(photo originally uploaded to Flickr by Corey Holms)

Christ followers should be doing what God wants them to do. (James 1:21-25) This is more than just adherence to a set of rules that mark a person as a follower of Christ or somehow wins someone points to get on God’s good side. Missional children’s ministries want families and children to follow God because they have experienced his love and realize that following God is better than following a path of their making. (Jeremiah 29:11, John 10:10) Missional children’s ministries want families and children to realize God’s original plan for humankind was to be his image bearer, (Genesis 1:26-27) and as people submit to God and imitate Christ they become more and more a restored image bearer of God.

How do we keep following God from being a set of rules and check lists that we have to follow to stay on God’s good side?
