We started off by spreading out and doing quiet time practice, and then we came back together and shared what stood out to us in the scripture we read. One student shared that the love of Christ stood out to him. From there, we went into a discussion about how love separates Christianity from all other world religions and that it’s not just the love that our God shows us, but also the unique way that we are called to love others. Loving our enemies and putting others needs above our own is the kind of love that makes Christians a shining light in an otherwise dark world.
I have truly enjoyed the last three weeks! I am excited to announce that Daisy Pierce won the coveted fuzzy donut/cupcake journal after completing several of the challenges over the last three weeks! Congratulations Daisy!
This past Sunday we had a time of Q & A. Some of the fun questions we got to discuss and look to the Bible for answers were: Did the burning bush have flowers? What did Jesus look like? Why do friendships drift apart?
I also learned that there were several students whose favorite book of the Bible is Revelation. It’s one of my favorites too! We got to have a great discussion about some aspects of end times and what maranatha means.
I hope you’ll join me in continuing to pray for the people we know that don’t know The Lord and that you’ll invite those people to join you at church!
