I Am Not Ashamed

I Am Not Ashamed
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16
Hey Kids:
What kind of things do you like to do with your parents? How do you address them?
Jesus called God, Father. He said we could become the sons of God. What a great way to think about our relationship with God. He is like our earthly fathers, dads, papas, however you address your earthly father.
An idea to begin a closer relationship with God could be to make a list of things you enjoy doing with your dad. Before you can call your dad, Dad, you must first belong to him.
Do you have a time and a place you remember asking Jesus for forgiveness? Did you ask Him to save you so you could be part of His family?
Do you enjoy talking to your dad? What do you talk about? Do you talk to him in public?
Do you think Jesus would enjoy hearing about those things too?
What kinds of activities do you enjoy with your dad? Do you hunt or fish, read books, play games?
How can you involve Jesus in those activities?
When does your dad make you feel safe? Do you ask for his help?
How does your dad make you feel loved? Do you tell him you love him?
Have you ever thought Jesus might enjoy your asking for things?
Do you think Jesus would like to know you love Him?
Maybe a good start would be to stop… right where you are and begin a conversation with God.
