We started VBS this past Sunday night! I always LOVE VBS week. After all, VBS was one of the major influences on me in the beginning of my walk with Christ. I mean, who doesn’t love to have fun & learn about Jesus at the same time!!
I’ll admit, the past several years, I’ve been less than thrilled with the standard Lifeway VBS content, but this year is AMAZING! Mixing basic apologetics with VBS. Teaching kids to have courage because they have the knowledge needed to share their faith with others!!! Lifeway, can we do this EVERY year? 😉
This morning, I find myself quite sore (I may actually be getting too old to jump around on stage), feeling a little exhausted, and lacking motivation to do anything. But then I think about those little faces. Excited little faces. Having fun while learning about Jesus. Then I think of myself at that age and how awesome it was to see those same grown-ups who were at church every week…maybe not always looking so excited…having fun with me. Sharing a little bit of child-like excitement with me. That is what helps me get through the super busy week that is VBS week.
I want to share last night’s song with you. It is a pretty awesome one. 🙂
Be blessed & show some kids in your life your excitement for Christ today!
“But honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” 1 Peter 3:15
