VBS week

Here at Grace it is VBS week. This can be a very exciting week for kids and a tiring one for the workers. However, it is definately a very important week. There are so many kids that come to hear about the Good News of Christ. I am praying that as a church we are meeting that need this week. The kids that come need to know how Christ loved them so much that He died for them on a cross. Come to think of it, we all need to make sharing this fact our passion. There is really no reason that all the people around us don't know about this. We all have the ability to share and give of ourselves in a way to make the saving power of Christ clear.
Be on the look out for a way to share Christ with someone today!

The Main Thing

My friend Gary over the years has constantly reminded me to "keep the main thing, the main thing". This has never been more true for me then over these past few weeks. We have just returned from taking 23 wonderful students to Coastal Carolina and serving our Lord there. With any trip there are many details to take care of and many situations that arise as you prepare to leave. To many times I worry so much about the details that I tend to forget that God is in control. I tend to put myself in charge and can sometimes miss the great things of the Lord and I can miss seeing the great work He does through these great students.
My prayer is that I will not miss His work. That I will not miss His doings here on the earth.
