Power, Creation, and a Triune Nature
The last few weeks have been extraordinary when it comes to what God is showing the children, as well as the adults, through the preparation and class time. First, we would like to thank all of you that have prayed for the team and the ministry it provides for the younger generation. We, as a team, understand that it is only through God’s grace, mercy, and power that we can even know the smallest bit about him!
The last few lessons have brought to light the almighty power of God. We have talked about the triune nature of God (The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), his creation of everything out of nothing, and that he is in control of everything! If you get the opportunity, as your children what the word ‘ex nihilo’ means….I’m sure you are going to be surprised how much Latin your children know.
It is amazing that when we spoke to the children of the triune nature of God they seemed to believe it without hesitation. When asked why they believed it they simply said, “Because it is in the Bible and God said it was true.” In Mark 10:14-15 Jesus said “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Our prayer is that we all, as the body of Christ, come to him with this same childlike faith and obedience. As we grow older we are inundated with so many things that are worldly and can easily skew our image of Christ, but it is through his Word living in us that we can rise above what the world has to offer and focus in on the glory that God has promised those who believe.
We have to only look around in the world we live and understand that without his powerful voice, none of this would be. We can look at a sunrise, a rain/snow shower, a rainbow, a sunset, and all of the stars in the sky, and know of his great love for us. Every minute of every day the world is constantly praising the name of the creator, the sustainer, and the controller of all things. We pray that each one of us, young and old alike, would do the same!
