There are many voices out there beckoning you to follow them. there is only one voice we need to hear; the voice of Jesus. His is the only voice that gives us peace and hope, forgiveness and eternal life! If there is any voice you should train your child to hear, it should be Jesus'!
God is stranger to many people. They see suffering, they see their lives and the life of the world and it doesn't make sense. Many people leave the church because they don't understand this God. Understanding the cross opens our eyes to see God no longer as a stranger, but a savior, a Father, a friend! The cross is the center of the Christian faith! Its what draws sinners to God.
