FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS volume 17, number 18, May 10, 2018 “For the promise is for you and your children. . .” -Acts 2:39 Evangelizing Your Children Perhaps the most grievous thing to me in all my years of ministry is to see children of the covenant, those who were baptized as infants, who were catechized by their parents with the Westminster Shorter Catechism, who received morning and evening family worship, who attended Sunday morning and evening worship,...
