Hello, friend! What spooks you out? Does the dark, snakes, or maybe singing in front of people? Today we are going to look at fear for what it really is. Many people live in fear their whole life. Fear Controls, Confuses, and Condemns... Does Jesus want us to live like that? NO WAY!!
Isaiah 41:10 tells us not to fear because Jesus is with us all the time! He is going to help us no matter what we are going through. I John 4:18 tell us that perfect LOVE casts out fear. The opposite of FEAR is.... LOVE! God wants us to live a life of love! God is LOVE and He- Comforts, Conforms, and Confides in us. Don't let fear keep you from fully living. Read Psalm 27:1-3 to find out why we shouldn't fear! Watch the video clip above and let LOVE reign in your life! Jesus loves you!
Hello, friend! Adoption is when a baby or a child needs a home and someone opens their hearts and homes and takes them in as their own. My parents adopted my two brother's when they were small, and my sister and her family are wanting to adopt a baby. Did you know that I am adopted, too? Not by my earthly parents, but by God the Father.
Galatians 4 tells us ....
1.) God sent His Son, Jesus
2.) Born of a woman, Mary
3.) Born under the law
4.) To redeem those under the law... YOU and ME!!!
5.) To be ADOPTED into God's family:):):):)!!!
If you are born again, you are adopted into GOD'S family. You are an HEIR of the King of Kings, Jesus. That means- if you are boy, you are a prince. If you are a girl, you are a true princess! We are God's children, adopted out of sin and death and given a new inheritance... eternal life! So cool, right!! Adoption is amazing!! Watch and see!
Hello, friend! Do you like the smell of homemade yeast rolls coming out of the oven? Um... I do! Yummy, but for the sake of today's thought we are going to look at yeast and look at sin. Yeast is what you use to make bread rise up big and fluffy. It only takes just a little bit and it works through the whole lump of dough. Sin is the same. It takes just a little bit of sin to ruin a whole life. Think of sin like yeast in dough...
S= Separates Us from GOD
I= Inside Our Lives
N= Nothingness That Brings DEATH
Once just a little gets in the dough, it makes a big difference. It effects the whole entire batch of dough. The same is with sin in our lives. Once a little gets inside us, it makes a big difference. NOT a good, yummy difference. A HORRIBLE, nasty difference. It really does matter if we sin. WE need to stay away from sin, and when we mess up and do sin, STOP! REPENT! Ask for forgiveness and move on in full assurance JESUS LOVES YOU! He died for you! Watch and see!
Hello, friend! S'mores, pumpkins, bonfires, and scarves! Yep, it is FALL! AND I LOVE IT! Fall is probably my favorite time of the year. Winter, spring, and summer are pretty amazing, too! Which season is your favorite? Each season brings new and different changes and beauty.
Sanctification is a word you may have never heard of before, but it is kinda like the changing seasons. Sanctification is growing to be more like Jesus... or the process of becoming holy or set apart for God. It is a miraculous thing! It happens in two ways... automatically when you are born again, AND a daily process of growing to be more like Jesus.
Each season of our lives brings good times and bad times. All of it is for our GOOD and God's GLORY! We need to learn to enjoy all the seasons in our lives in different ways. Jesus is always working on us. Look for the good in each change and season. Sanctification is a wonderful mystery!
Ask big questions, because we have a BIG GOD! This series of 52 video blogs is geared towards kids to know the WORD, Jesus!
