With VBS right around the corner my sermon this morning was focused on the faith of our children. Since Wednesday as I was meditating on the story of David and Goliath (which was what my message was on) God continued to really touch and move my heart. He continued to reveal to me throughout the week what message He wanted to share with our congregation.
My initial calling into ministry and the passion that drove me into wanting to serve the Kingdom was because of the younger generation. God has always put this passion within me for the younger generation. I have this deep rooted conviction that God views all people, all ages as His children. When I see a child I don’t see a child, rather an instrument of God, whom He desires to move in and through.
This passion and conviction of mine was confirmed once again to me personally during my sermon today. As I was preaching about the importance of faith within our children and how God moves through His children I was reminded of my passions. This was really needed for me, especially during this busy time of preparing for VBS. It was needed to be reminded that I am serving God out of passion not responsibility or burden.
I saw God today.
