These are the spiritual convictions that describe my current status. This week, I will be teaching and leading for Camp David Vacation Bible School at First Baptist Atlanta. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18).
I am beyond humbled and excited at the same time to have this opportunity just as I did in Lebanon to be a light for Jesus to the 6th grade girls around me. God is so good. “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man” (Colossians 4:6).
The main theme for this year’s VBS is the armor of God. Pray that I, the volunteers, and all of the children will put on the full armor of God and use it to fight off Satan’s lies and temptations. “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
Pray that the light of Jesus will touch their lives in ways that I could not by my own work. “I am the light of the world: He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
Also, pray that the 6th grade girls will be divinely inspired by the Living Word of Jesus so that they will search the scriptures for eternal life and that those who do not know Him will come to Him and accept Him as Savior and Lord of their lives. “Search the scriptures: for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me” (John 5:39).
Thank you everyone for your continued support, but most importantly, thank the Lord for presenting me with this amazing opportunity! “But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren because of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:13).
