A wonderful thing happened in our meeting/fellowship last night. We are studying 2 Peter and last week we were talking about God's promises. At one point we were all trying to recall an old hymn about God's promises that we all kind of remembered but nobody really knew. My 2nd daughter who is 13 spoke up and said that she would write a song about God's promises for the next week. This is our quietest child who despite being incredibly musical, resists performing in any way. Sure enough, by this week she had written a song with chorus and even a bridge! The words are wonderful- including words from a few different verses that different people had brought up the week before, and she played her guitar and led us all in singing it last night.
I know that my daughter learned more about God, and connected to His promises in a more intimate way than she could have from hearing even the best sermon on the topic.
Praise God for the example of interactive meetings in His word! What a joy that we serve a relational an interactive God!!!
Yes, I deffinately agree Mathew! I have said before how great it has been for our kids these last 2 years of interactive church, but the input from the kids has been as much of a blessing for us adults as well!!!
And Jesus sat down, and called the twelve, and said unto them, "If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all."
And He took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when He had taken him in His arms, He said unto them, "Whosoever shall receive one of such child in My name, receives Me: and whosoever shall receive Me, receives not Me, but Him that sent Me."
