Sunday Stillness – Choose Jesus
It has been a very busy week. My family were visiting and I led a Vacation Bible Camp at our church for the mornings. Needless to say I didn’t have time to reply to the wonderful comments from last Sunday. I did read them and thank you so much. This week it should – (I say should) – be easier to get stuff done.
At our Bible Camp the kids learned 5 important choices
Choose to Believe:
The Blind Man – John 9
Memory Verse – God sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world. (1 John 4:14)
Choose to Act:
The Ten Sick Men – Luke 17:11-19
Memory Verse – Let us love with actions (1john 3:18)
Choose to Forgive:
The Paralyzed Man – Mark 2:1-12
Memory Verse – God will forgive our sins. (1 John 1:9)
Choose to Obey:
The Rich Young Ruler – Luke 18:18-27
Memory Verse – I will obey Your commands. (Psalm 119:
The Disciples – John 20:19-29
Memory Verse – Choose today who you will love and serve. (Joshua 24:15)
They did very well with the memory work. Our presentation on Friday for the parents was fantastic. The kids were terrific.
I bought my VBS from Gospel Light called SonWorld. It was the last one Amazon had and was out-of-date on their website. But it gave me the needed inspiration for stories, great pictures and flannel pictures too. I had to make up my own crafts (except one) as I didn’t find the crafts given to be useful for remembering the lessons.
These are lessons we all need to remember.
I caught a cold on the Wednesday but once again God carried me through. Amazing what strength we can get from Him.
Here is one of the songs they loved and sang at the end of our presentation. Let’s remember these words.
I’m Keeping my eyes on Jesus.
If we keep our eyes on Jesus, He will carry us through. (click to tweet)
