Faith in Jesus Christ is part of the greatest inheritance you can give or receive.
was preaching last Sunday about faith. As a child, I can still remember
the faith of my Grandmother Anastazie Guidry Dartez. She had a framed
print of Jesus Christ praying on his knees at a rock, hanging on her
bedroom wall.I have searched for several years
all over the internet and in different art and antique shops for that
picture to no avail! I had mentioned it during the sermon.
morning when I opened my front door to my surprise there sat a copy of
it on my doorstep. I asked everyone who was at the church meeting; none
of them had placed the framed picture by our door! The Lord told someone
to come to my house and put it there. It was exactly the same print and
just as old. I cried for an hour after finding that picture.
am so thankful to Jesus Christ for my heritage. I grew up in a family
that prays and believes Jesus is God and answers prayer. I am so
grateful that the path to Jesus was laid out before me. I had a Mother
and Grandmother who prayed daily.
The Apostle Paul spoke of such faith being passed down from one generation to another in the following passage: “When
I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt
first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded
that in thee also.” 2 Timothy 1:5
praying even though you don’t think the situation is changing. Jesus
answers prayer. Keep pointing your children down the right path.
