    “This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.”  I John 4:9–12 (NIV)


    “Mom, have you ever seen God?” “Where does God live?” “How can Jesus be God and God’s Son?”

     

    These are a few of the profound questions children (and many adults) ask. There are many theological answers to these questions but these verses from I John indicate the connection between God living in us and our showing that love to others here on earth. Recently, I have been having conversations with my own boys about the “kingdom of God” on earth. What does this concept mean? Simply put, it means that those of us who know Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord can reflect and live His love and attributes while we are here on earth.

     

    In light of the global economic crisis, which trickles down to families on a practical level, what can we as Christians offer to our friends and neighbors? We have the love and hope that God has given us. It’s not about earthly kingdoms but about God living in us here on earth and the hope of heaven for all eternity if we have trusted in Him.

     

    You can’t buy that with Visa. The great part of God’s gift of salvation is that it is free, no payments and zero percent interest, because Jesus paid it all on the cross! There is no greater love!

     

    Children’s ministries are in full swing for 2009! We are halfway through the Awana year. Clubbers are busily completing and reviewing handbooks. Our Sunday School teachers are doing an excellent job, creatively and age-appropriately presenting the Truth of God’s Word.

     

    Our Guys Only fifth and sixth-grade Sunday School class enjoyed an overnight adventure in Julian. I am planning Appreciation Dinners for all our children’s ministry volunteers. Vacation Bible School brainstorming has filled my mind. Please email or phone my office if you are interested in serving Vacation Bible School July 13–17. There are many different jobs that need to be filled for this important week.

     

    Thank you to all the children’s ministry staff for your unwavering commitment to be the dynamic, living kingdom of God on Earth!
