Children Evangelism and Discipleship Part 2 – By Oyekunle Sunday

Topic: Children Evangelism and Discipleship {2}
Bible text: Joel2:28

In the Last part of this study, we discussed about ministering Salvation to the Children as Christ died for all age groups. At the same time following the young ones up for discipleship {i.e spiritual growth and development}.

Today we proceed to ministering baptism of the Holy Spirit to the young ones and introducing the Holy Spirit to them. I receive divine utterance and edification for every readers in Jesus Name (Amen).
Our anchor scripture says:

” And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon ALL flesh; and your SONS and your DAUGHTERS shall PROPHESY, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions”{Joel2:28}.

As Salvation of Righteousness in Christ Jesus is for all age groups; likewise the Holy Ghost baptism is for ALL without exception. The prophecy given by Prophet Joel has already come to pass on the day of Pentecost. All that remains now is that we key more into it our generation.

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the GIFT of the HOLY GHOST. For the promise is unto YOU, and to your CHILDREN, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” {Acts2:38-39}.

In the new testament we saw the godly example of Philip who raised his children unto the Lord. He also get them filled with the Holy Spirit and manifestation of spiritual gifts.
” …And we entered into the house of PHILIP the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him. And the same MAN had FOUR DAUGHTERS, VIRGINS, which did PROPHESY.” {Acts21:8-9}.


I remembered some years ago, I was coordinating an house fellowship; with the help of the Holy Spirit all members has been saved and groomed with the sincere milk of the Word. In the cause of intense worship one Sunday evening, I felt the mighty presence of the Lord and I key into that to minister Holy Ghost baptism. Every members that haven’t being baptized all received thier impartation with evidence of speaking in tongues to the least of the children around. From that day onward, my faith was boosted and I can’t count the number of children I have got baptized in the Holy Ghost since then.

When children got baptized in the Holy Ghost, they are empowered and more eager to know the Lord. It’s this children you also see eager to preach the gospel even to adults without fear or intimidation. For instance I took my first congregation sermon at the tender age of 14 years because I was already saved a year ago and baptized in the Holy Ghost by His grace {Acts1:8}.

Children that are filled with the Holy Spirit understand the Word of God better beyond just memorizing and reciting the scripture. When you tell them about the Holy Spirit and the kingdom life, they now have capacity to know and experience the realities.

“Neglect not the GIFT that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. MEDITATE upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy PROFITING may appear to ALL.” {1Tim4:14-15}.

This is Apostle Paul charge to his spiritual son {Timothy} who has been saved from his earlier age by his godly home. With the awareness that he was already saved, Apostle Paul baptized him in the Holy Ghost and has been discipling Timothy since then {2Tim1:1-10}.

My beloved brethren, enough of our slumber, arise and shine the light of salvation in you by living Christlike life, preaching the gospel to every children, get them saved and baptized in the Holy Ghost and teach them the way of the Lord till they get established in the Lord { 1Cor11:1, 2Tim4:5}.

My Prayer this day, Grace to Grace, Strength to Strength as we awake to this call in Jesus Name {Amen}.

Verse of the Day:
“While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on ALL them which heard the word.”{Acts10:44}.

Action point: The Holy Ghost baptism is for children also.
