In the wild, to survive you’ll have to find a way to stay cool in the day’s heat. In the kingdom, we stay cool and thrive no matter how hot it gets.
Next week will wrap up our Survivors series and it will be at the church. So on the 17th of June, I need all of my kids there to help with the last part of the series on being rescued. Be ready for something great!!
In the wild, you’ll need to form alliances to survive. In the kingdom, friendships made with other believers can help you thrive. Today we will look at two people who formed an alliance and became part of HIStory!
There are times in our lives when we get discouraged. We all have disappointments, we all feel lonely, and we all want to give up. When you get to that point, that’s when God can step in and ignite a fire in us. The great news for us is that we don’t have to wait for God to come to us! In Moses’ time, God only came and spoke to those whom he chose. Because we have Jesus, we have the Holy Spirit, and through the Holy Spirit, we can pray to God any time we need him.
In Acts 3:1-4:21 we see that Jesus’ mission isn’t going to be that easy. Peter healed someone in the name of Jesus and caused quite a stir. Peter and John used this moment to share the message of Jesus. Soon though, the religious leaders arrested them and had them stand trial. Peter and John showed determination. They made it clear that no matter what happened to them, they would continue sharing Jesus with others.
Bottom Line: Keep going even when it gets tough. Even when we follow Jesus, we’re not promised an easy life. We are promised that God will be with us. Just because a situation we face is difficult, doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. We pray that kids will learn to lean into the power of God to find the determination they need to keep going.
Starting May 24th, we will be back at the church for Children’s Church! But make sure that your parents are okay with you coming back. There are also a few things that I need you guys and gals to do while you are back there. So check out this video so you know what is going on!
