Good morning, boys and girls Happy Sabbath. I hope you guys had a good weekend. Hope you guys are having an excellent Sabbath. Let’s jump into our Bible verse for a children’s story this morning.
So today, we’re going to be opening up to second Corinthians chapter 5, verse 17, where it says, this means that anyone who belongs in Christ has become a new person, the old life is gone, and a new life has begun. Again, the second Corinthians chapter 5, verse 17.
So for the example today, boys and girls, were going to use a hat like this. I know some of you guys are most of us have bought shirts, clothings, maybe even shoes some times. And they come with this little tag right here. Sometimes it’s just used to hang the, the item on a rack, or some stickers like that. And at first, you know, you don’t really think of it right. But when you buy it, it’s now yours. It belongs to you. So what’s the first thing you do? You grab a pair of scissors and you cut these things up, right?
Same thing goes when we give ourselves to Christ, boys and girls, when we get baptized, or not even baptized, when we devote our life to Christ daily, we start seeing all the weird little things that we have in our life that shouldn’t really be there now that we belong to Christ, right? We have, like I said, this sticker right here, looks kind of weird if we leave it on after we buy it, right? So we take that off, okay? Then, you know, we’d have this tag right here that we also take off. All right. And then when we even dig a little deeper, we’ll see that we have some, some things that we didn’t even know, were there that, you know, things that we didn’t know God didn’t approve of. So we take those out. Same thing with these little stickers right here. First thing we do is we take them off. So that we can it can signify that is now no ours. And once we have given ourselves to Christ, we can now fully commit ourselves to Alright boys and girls. I hope you guys enjoyed the story. Let’s close our eyes and bow our heads for a word of prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father, Lord, thank you God for another day of life. I ask that you please be with these children, Lord, may they devote their lives to you on a daily basis words that they may exemplify your character in everything you do, in everything they do. So you’d be with their parents be with their teachers and be with their loved ones, Lord, may You guide and protect them as well as these children grow. And we ask all these things in the name of your precious Son, Jesus Christ, amen.
All right, boys and girls, Happy Sabbath, and we’ll see you next time.
