Ever wonder what we really need to be closer to God and Jesus? 1 Corinthians 10: 12 -13 gives us a clue. this verse speaks to our need. Temptation comes, but we do not understand it and are often NOT prepared for it. But there are points to help us understand it. (1) God permits evil which HE is NOT the author. we must understand where the evil comes from and BELIEVE IT – it is from Satan, no doubt no questions asked. Sin is part of this world and there is nothing we can do about that and must live through it and God will use that to strengthen us. (2) We should be AFRAID of temptation. Do not think you are ever strong enough to resist or do anything on your own strength. (3) We should never think or believe we cannot resist temptation. Example: I cannot help it, i am the only one that experiences that. Wrong you are or would be. But we can resist all temptations if we are focused on Jesus.
As usual we, together with the children started the program with a prayer. Then proceeded with the story telling. In the end of the story, the children knew Samson was sorry for disobeying God. And they learned obedience is a very important thing to do, especially obeying God.
Then, we divided them into groups (1-8). We assigned leader in each group ages 14-15. They are the one responsible helping the little children to memorize their memory verse.
Then Samson prayed to the Lord, “Sovereign Lord, remember me.
Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one
blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.”
Obtaining Inward Light Ministries, is once again holding a Vacation Bible School in the Philippines where we built the Church four years ago. It’s been our delight to support the Church with this Christian activity, where children enjoyed learning about Christ and the bible. Where they could be taught and fed physical and spiritual food.
As of now thirty (30) children signed up with the permission of their parents. We are still hoping many would come just like the recent numbers that we had.
We’ll keep everyone updated as we go. God bless us all.
