A New Day Full of Grace

A New Day Full of Grace
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. II Peter 3:18 KJV
Hey Kids:

The season of love is upon us. Red and pink hearts are everywhere, but what is love?

Love is a gift, most likely an undeserved gift.
The greatest gift is God’s only Son sent to die for our sins, a gift none of us has ever deserved.
If you have repented of your sins and asked for forgiveness,
you understand you have received an undeserved gift. We often call it grace.
There are so many around us who do not know of God’s grace, the gift of His Son.
They feel hopeless and helpless.
We hold their hope.
Jesus commanded us to go into all the world and preach the gospel.
Part of reaching others is meeting their needs so they are able to hear the gospel.
We are to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Make a list of people you know in need. Here’s a start.
  • A kid at school who needs a friend.
  • Elderly in the neighborhood or at nursing homes.
What can you do?
  • Sit with the lonely kid at lunch.
  • Make Valentines for nursing homes or hospitals.
  • Weed a garden or plant flowers.
  • Take a covered dish to someone who’s sick.

 

Acts of kindness open doors for the presentation of the gospel.
Be sure to enlist the help of your parents.
Remember, God gave them to you to help you grow in grace and the knowledge of of our Lord.
