Truth and Action of the Book of Joel in the Spirit Filled Life Bible
Truth – Growing in Godliness : We teach our children Godliness when we instruct them about God’s nature, character, and the ways He blesses and disciplines His people. They “catch” Godliness when we model if for them in our own lives. Joel instructs the elders to tell their children about God’s judgment on Israel that came in by the form of a locust invasion. By instructing our children about the discipline of the Lord perhaps we can help them avoid the mastakes we have made.
Action – Tell your children and encourage them to tell their children about God’s ways, nature, and character. Help them learn from their mistakes and God’s dealings with you, as well as with His people. Gratefully receive the Holy Spirit, as He is poured out on children, adult, and the elderly. Praise God that the Holy Spirit is no respected of age, gender, or social or economic status. Understand that this prophetic word continues to be fulfilled in the church today. Receive the fullness of the spirit and the gifts He imparts to you. (Acts 2:1-21)
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can help guide you in the next steps of your relationship with Jesus.
