What a wonderful week of Vacation Bible School!
God has blessed our students and our workers as the Chapel has been transformed into COWABUNGA!
As we make ready to wind down summer and prepare for school, we are strengthening every ministry in our church. We are affirming that every person, whether member or visitor, is of great value to our Lord. You are important!
In 1 Samuel 16:11, the scripture reads: “And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children?”
Samuel is pressing Jesse, are these all your children? Jesse answered, “There remaineth yet the youngest, and behold, he keepeth the sheep.”
In that culture, naming David as the youngest son was the same as calling him the insignificant one… the one not counting for very much. When Jesse added that David was tending the sheep, that was a way of saying he has the job of a slave, forget him.
God didn’t forget David! David was to be anointed and proclaimed King. God designated David’s town as the spot where grace would invade this sinful world. That was the place where Jesus would be born.
God sees what we don’t see. Every person is someone for whom Christ died. Every child, every teen, every adult, no matter their age, is important to God.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT! We are serving the Lord together.
You are loved,
Pastor and Muzette
