Teach Your Children Well

We just finished up a week of Vacation Bible School. It was great! We had about 60 kids and 50 helpers, a full house each night. The theme this year was Crocodile Dock, Where Fearless Kids Shine God’s Light. Each night the kids learned a different attribute of God; God is With Us, God is Powerful, God Does What He Says He’ll Do, God Gives Us Life, and God Cares For Us.

On Saturday, the boys and I were hanging out at our neighbor’s pool. Chase was singing the theme song from VBS, I Will Not Be Afraid. He knew it word for word. It was so cute … watching him propel around the pool singing at the top of his lungs about how Jesus was always there to protect him.

Later on, we were back at home and Zeke ate something he shouldn’t have. Chase went over to reprimand him and I heard him telling Zeke that he needed to ask The Lord to forgive him and to accept Jesus into his heart so he’d live in heaven with us forever.

It was the cutest thing … Chase sharing the gospel with Zeke.

We have been studying the Book of James in our Sunday night ladies Group. James instructs us, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22)

In Matthew, Jesus tells us, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” ( Matthew 28:19,20)

I want to be like Chase … I want songs of praise to be on my lips and the message of Jesus to be on my heart.

Father thank you for giving us the opportunity to teach the kids through VBS. I am so thankful that you are with us, you are powerful, you do what you say you will do, you give us life and you care for us so very much. Thank you for instilling your Word in Chase’s heart, and all the other kids who were there. Encourage them to draw near to you Father … let them feel your presence in their day to day lives.

I love you Jesus!
In Your Name I Pray,
Amen

God Bless You!

Love,
Joyce
