Game On

This week we took a break from our series, Hard Sayings.  With our Vacation Bible School starting last night, we took a few minutes to get a preview of what the kids will be studying all week long.  When it comes to the task of advancing the kingdom of God in this world, our Lord does not leave us unequipped for the work.  He has provided us everything we need and then some.  Keep reading to learn how.

 

Game On

Well, this morning we are taking a brief break from our series, Hard Sayings, to talk about something else.  There are a couple of reasons for this.  First, I don’t know about you, but the past three weeks have been a bit bruising.  Not only that, but we’ve got some more challenging stuff in the weeks ahead of us.  Taking a bit of a breather will leave us refreshed and ready to engage further with some of the other hard things Jesus said.  There’s an even more pressing reason than that, though.  Tonight, begins our week-long marathon that is Vacation Bible School.  I’ve got to tell you: I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.  I love VBS.  It gives me a chance every year to be a big kid…not that I’m not a big kid for most of the rest of the year, it just gives me a better excuse.  This week I get the pleasure of teaching the Bible study lessons to some of the older kids.  There’s just something fun about engaging with these guys and helping them understand the life-changing teachings of Jesus.  As fun as the Bible study lessons are this year, though, most of you are not going to get to be in on the action.  So, I wanted to give you a sneak-peak at what the kids are going to be learning in the days ahead.
