“Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” Matthew 16:24-26
Pastor Lorne preached a transformational message this week about profit and gain from God’s perspective. The main scripture of his teaching was found in Matthew 16 (you can check that one as correct on your kids sermon notes sheet!)
Some of the things from his sermon that stuck out to me were:
“God’s got a bigger plan/view of your life.”
“God is leading & directing our lives for a purpose.”
“The Kingdom and treasure of God is the big score”
One of our kids wrote in this week that he heard “God is on my side.” What a powerful truth!
What were some of things that stood out to you? Comment below! We want to hear from you!
One of the scriptures Pastor Lorne read was in 1 Timothy 6:6-10.
Verse 6 said “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”
Wow! What a powerful scripture. I am wondering, does anyone know what contentment means? I will offer a PRIZE to the first kid to comment on our blog this week with a definition for contentment!
I will leave you with this final thought- I have been reading your kids sermon notes and I am blown away by the revelations from God that you kids are learning! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! You are doing great and I am so proud of each of you who are participating in this great summer challenge to grow!
