One of the challenges of teaching the gospel message is convincing people that they need to actually respond to the message that was delivered by God. There are many who are convinced that they have been obedient, but in reality they have failed to listen to the message that God has sent. They are very much willing to be obedient to the instructions of men, but not of God! Jesus knew that this would be an issue among people, for as long as the world would stand. Consider His warning from the first century:

 

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:46–49)

Children's Worship Notes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Kris Brewer   
Saturday, 04 August 2012 20:32

I have been trying to develop a page to help younger children take notes during the worship assemblies, especially during the sermons. This is what I have come up with, but it may be something that changes/evolves over time. I am sure that I will update it as my own children get older, and need something more in depth. I hope it is something that can be of use to you as well!

 

This is designed to print front and back on a single letter size sheet of paper, then fold.

I Will Build My Church PDF Print E-mail

Imagine, if you will, that you are on the verge of building your very first house. You have meticulously gone through the various sources for blueprints and plans, and have found the perfect house. Every detail has been given attention, and you are excited to see all of your planning come to fruition. After several months, the time has come to move into your home. When you arrive, you find that it is nothing like what you planned, and described (through blueprints) for the contractor!  Upon further examination, and a discussion with the contractor, you find that he has taken it upon himself to make “improvements” to your approved design! Can you imagine how angry, and disappointed you would be if you found yourself in such a situation?

Putting God First PDF Print E-mail

I was reminded today, by a post made by a friend of mine on Facebook, just how important it is to teach our children that God always comes first. It seems to me that there are more and more excuses that people in general make, and especially parents, that reflect that God is not truly their first priority. I know that we all will write "God" in that first blank when we strive to enumerate our priorities, but when it comes to actions, how often do we fail? I was reminded of the Parable of the Sower, as I thought about these things this morning. Jesus said that there are some who are the thorny soil. Consider His explanation:

 

Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22)

Lessons From Lot PDF Print E-mail

As I have been reading from the book of Genesis over the last couple of days, several thoughts occurred to me. In Genesis 13, Abraham and Lot separated from one another, with Lot choosing to move his family toward the city of Sodom. Abraham, in the meantime, moved toward the Oaks of Mamre, near Hebron,  and continued to live in tents. By Genesis 18, God decided that He would destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of their wickedness. Abraham, in an effort to save his nephew, Lot, bargained with God about saving the cities. He started by asking if God would save the cities if there were 50 righteous persons located there. He eventually whittled that number down to just 10, but even that could not be found, and God proceeded with His plan to destroy these wicked cities. Of course, God did make provision for Lot, making a way to escape the destruction that was to come.
