    “Everyone was so nice. It makes me want to come to your church.”

     

    Those were the words of our server at the Sunday School Teacher Appreciation Dinner on Thursday, March 5, 2009. We gathered just before sunset at a local restaurant overlooking the bay at Seaport Village. I had arrived several hours prior to decorate with red Gerbera daisies amidst white hydrangea in a whimsical bear-grass-covered vase, burgundy, pink and white balloons and special favor candle lights with Teachers Reflect God’s Light imprinted on a small white tag attached to them. There were seventeen people who gathered to eat and fellowship. Pastor David thanked them for their faithful service and offered thanks for the meal.

     

    Most of the teachers have young children, so the church caregivers watched their children in the Kirk Cottage to help their parents fully enjoy the evening. The children enjoyed each other’s company as they played games, made crafts and ate pizza, popcorn and cookies. A winning combination!

     

    As I finished cleaning up and prepared to leave after a truly enjoyable evening, the words of our server affirmed to me that we are a living testimony of Christ everywhere we go and that people are watching. We do not stop being an example at our place of business, at the gym, when we go out to eat or are in the privacy of our home before our children. Romans 13:14 states, “ . . . clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ . . . ” So before you put on your earthly apparel each day, remember that you are to put on the spiritual apparel of Christ, showing His perspective and love for others.

     

    It gave me great joy to know that our Sunday School teachers not only talk about Jesus to our children but that they love Him enough to live like Him in the contexts of daily life. People will be drawn to us, our church and more importantly to Jesus Christ when we are living as He commands.

     

    I am always on the lookout for summer Sunday School teachers, Vacation Bible School volunteers and Awana leaders. Please prayerfully consider serving in one of these capacities if you are able and willing.

     

    May your designer label be Jesus Christ.
