BEING WITH THE HEAVENLY FATHER -
My fish in the pond get
so much water that they nearly float out of their home!
I wish sometimes I could talk to them and say “it’s OK, we will look after you!
We won’t let you float out onto the grass.”
My friend laughs when I say that,
“ You would have to talk fish language,
if you were going to make a fish understand you. You wouldn’t have a chance!”
I can’t become a fish on days when it floods.
I would like to, so I could help them to be calm.
I would like to talk to them and say, “It will be alright!”
you know that is why Jesus became a man?
He wanted to be with us in our trouble,
and help us understand what God wants us to know.
Jesus was God Himself,
but He came to the earth as a little baby at Bethlehem.
The Lord cared so much about people on earth that He became one with them.
He cared so much that He took our place on the Cross, so we could live forever.
He cared so much that He didn’t stay in Heaven, just looking on.
He was God, so he could do something wonderful about the hurts we face on earth.
God came as a man to our earth!
That God-man was the Lord Jesus Christ.
the beginning was the Word (Jesus Christ),
and the Word (Jesus Christ) was with God,
and the Word (Jesus Christ) was God.” (John 11).
EXTRAS FOR TEENS AND BETWEENS
In the days when Jesus
was walking as a man on earth most people did not know who He was. The
last part of His ministry on earth was filled with suffering for Him.
Silly and wicked people jeered at Him, they spat at Him and finally killed Him!
Did Jesus fail then in His purpose of coming to earth?
No, for He communicated the greatest message to we ‘fish’ in our pond that has ever been given. He showed us the great love of God, Who gave His Son to even die for the sin of the evil world.
After His death and resurrection Christianity blossomed throughout the entire earth. People saw that Jesus must have been God and He must have risen from the dead,
for his disciples would hardly have risked their lives for a hoax! Those early Christians gladly gave their lives for their Lord, to tell others that He was the Saviour of the world.
unsaved kids jeer at you if you say you are a follower of Jesus Christ?
Do they laugh if you say you read the Bible?
That can’t be helped, you know.
Believers in Christ have always suffered ridicule and much worse from those who will not repent and turn to the Saviour.
do you do?
* You pray for them, and ask God to work in their hearts,
so that they too can find life in Jesus Christ.
* And you let Jesus be strong in you,
so that you will not let Him down by being a coward!
can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians
“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 47).
