Rusty here! So excited to share with you the wonderful things we are learning at Cedar Point. Every week is more exciting than the last. This week, our passage is:
“Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. 2 For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.”
To create an example of following instructions, Pastor Andrew started a game of Simon Says. It is rather confusing since his name is Andrew, but apparently when you play this game your name becomes Simon… The game was a good example of how we often look at instructions in our life. We often think that if we don’t follow the rules exactly that we are kicked out. However, God doesn’t play games. If we mess up, He gives us chances to try again. I would much rather play God Says than Simon Says, thats for sure.
God has authority, but unlike other authority figures in our life, God is perfect and never abuses that power. Instead, he gives us rules so that we can make good choices and help other people.
So this week, make sure to place both hooves above you head (like a mountain peak) and ask your kids, “what’s the Point?” Your kids should respond with, “ Love God = Obey God.” The louder the better.
As always, I’ve enjoyed sharing with y’all.
See you next week to discover, know and follow.
