Living Faith

This week, my church had its annual Vacation Bible School, and I worked the computer as I always do. I love children’s ministry. I love seeing kids worship God and learn about Him. I think it’s amazing to see them soaking up God’s word in a way they can understand and apply. I find it very inspiring.

The theme for VBS this year was Living Faith. LIttle Billie, the friendly clown who sometimes visits the children at Cavanaugh Church, taught about three stories in the Bible with characters who exemplify living faith. The first story was Noah and the Great Flood, the second was the story of The Three Hebrew Children (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego), and the final story was about Solomon’s Wish for Wisdom. All of the stories were delivered in a fun, relatable way that the kids enjoyed and could easily take life lessons away from.

It was nice to see the kids praise and learn, but the stories were also a nice reminder to me. If I’m going to be successful in working with kids and ministry in general, I’m going to have to have a living faith, one that shines in my life at all times. I need to trust God and praise Him in everything I do. Only then will my faith be alive and fruitful. I pray that God will help me to have a living faith, and I challenge you to do the same. Live out your faith and share God’s love with someone today!
