"If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them" (1 John 5:16).

Years ago, I was like any parent. I was facing an awesome responsibility with little to no training! So I did what I've learned to do about everything. I sought the Lord.

As I sought the Lord regarding them, God gave me two very important instructions that have literally changed the lives of my children. I have carried them through with my grandchildren and it is amazing how powerful they are.

1) Don't magnify their sin. Remember, they are not just your children, they are your brothers and sisters in Jesus. The Word says where you see a brother sin, ask or pray and God will give you life for them (1 John 5:16).

In Galatians 6:1, the Word says, "Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted."

Restore! That means work to put back together. We must magnify the Word, the love of God and pray. Bind the devil and let him know he cannot have your children.

2) Treat them with respect. Remember to confess Isaiah 54:13, that they are taught of the Lord and great is His Anointing on them...and then act in faith on that Word promise. Treat them like they are God's anointed even when they act like the very devil.

Now this does not mean you don't correct, and it doesn't mean you ignore wrong conduct, but you do the correcting with respect and in love. If you desire and demand respect from them, then demand respect from yourself for them.

"Brother Copeland, I don't have any children."

Yes, you do. Everyone has children. They are all around you. They are on the streets. They are in your church. They are such a large part of our society that they affect everything we do. Begin to pray for the outpouring of God on the children around you. This is God's time for the children. This is harvest time among the young people. Every time you hear of violence on TV about children, say out loud, "Our children are taught of the Lord and great is the peace and anointing that's on them." AMEN!

Speak the Word: My children are taught of the Lord and great is their peace. (Isaiah 54:13)
