It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.
The Bible can be a mystery- we want to read it and study but how? How can we study the Bible for ourselves, and lead our children into a lifetime love of study of the word of God? The Bible isn’t an easy book to read, let’s be honest about it. In fact, it isn’t one book- it’s a whole library containing sixty-six books! However, that shouldn’t deter us from reading and understanding it. It’s good that we desire for our children to read the Bible. This site is an attempt to give you some tools to do just this: read, understand and communicate the word of God. As Christian home educators the question of why should we read the Bible isn’t the biggest question, rather the how should we read it?
Many Christian home-school parents are aware of their own deficiencies in various subject areas so they spend money or time to ensure that their child receives an adequate education in that area. As believers, God’s children, we have been given the awesome task of discipling our children, of hiding God’s Word in their hearts, of leading them to His feet. If we value our Christianity and believe it is something worthwhile, something of value to be passed on, do we impress that upon our children…do they know what is truly important to us? While reading and studying the Bible together, our children will learn what is most important to us…we have to model (live) the behaviour and attitudes we want to instill in our children. In many Christian schools and even some home-schools, Bible, Religion or Christian Faith is tacked onto the school day as though it is an elective. Parents of newborns, teens and new home-schoolers often lament over the lack of an Instruction Manual for parenting and life. But we have one!
It’s the Bible!
If our goal is, as Christian parents, to train and raise our children to the glory of God, then surely study of the word must have a strong focus in our home. Surely we need to be God-focussed with our education. Biblical illiteracy is the front-runner to deception! Don’t let this happen to your child. Don’t let this happen to you!
We hope that this site encourages, informs, edifies and equips as you pursue your study of God and His word.
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.
(2 Tim. 3:16–17)
