I'm thankful that I was given the great heritage of the Word of God. Who gave it to me? God did. The Holy Spirit worked faith in my heart that clung to the words recorded for me in Bible. The Holy Spirit did the same for my parents, my teachers, my fellow members and my Christian friends who inspired by the hope they had shared with me what they had received from others. The heritage I have, they have, and those who have gone to heaven retain, is a beacon of light to guide through this life and to ferry us through death to our eternal home. Such a heritage is yours. Such a heritage must be passed on by us faithfully to our neighbors, our children, and our children's children!
We have an amazing opportunity to do just that as we ourselves spend time in the Word, learning the teachings of the Bible and being prepared to faithfully share the hope we have starting with our own heart and finishing with whoever else we can tell. We also have an amazing opportunity to give that to our children through family devotions and discussions about the Word, and bringing them to the many opportunities we have together as a family of believers to grow on Sunday and throughout the week.
We will be kicking off our "school year" of Christian Education on September 8th! Beginning with worship, we will celebrate the beauty of our heritage in God's Word. Then after worship, plan on sticking around as we will have a Christian Education kickoff to focus our hearts on what matters most and to have some fun to start of the year! Afterwards, we will enjoy a potluck together with our church family.
If you are able to help by bringing some food for the meal, please either let me know by email here or sign up this coming Sunday in the back of church.
