You are His child and He cares for you. At what age is a child considered accountable to know and accept Jesus Christ? Today on The Message of the Cross, Brother Swaggart and panel discuss how children born into a Christian home typically become accountable much earlier than children in a home where the parents are not saved. A child, sometimes at a very young age, can hear the truth and receive it more readily than an adult. In Mark 10:14, Jesus said suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God. Brother Swaggart shares how God has used women greatly to take the Gospel to the world. God said Mary will be an instrument to bring the redeemer into the world, as God had her provide a home for nine months to carry Christ in her womb. God can use you too; for whosoever will come and take of the water of life freely. From before the foundations of the world, Jesus Christ was to come to redeem sinful man; this was the plan, wisdom and power of God.
