I nonetheless recall their vast eyes and keen faces as I attempted to make Bible tales come alive. With crayons clutched in small fingers, they colored easy footage for instance the times lesson. Their questions had been easy and from the guts: Will there be cowboys in heaven?

I’ve adopted Jesus over fifty years. I’ve discovered a lot in my stroll with him. Sensible flashes of perception in addition to torturous paths of wrestle with fact have been my expertise. However all alongside the way in which I’ve been – and proceed to be – a newbie. God reveals a brand new self-discipline he asks me to follow, a brand new danger he lovingly dares me to take, a brand new fact he needs me to consider

As we develop towards non secular maturity, as we’re being reworked via the renewing of our minds and obedience to the whispers of the Holy Spirit, might we at all times have the recent angle of starting. Once more.
