“I can’t believe that VBC week is almost over! It’s been a week FULL of finion fun! We have learned a lot this week, such as Jesus calling Peter, the story of Mary and Martha, Jesus feeding 5,000, and about making disciples. Not to mention, we got to learn new songs, new dances, and we even got to rap Scripture verses! Today, we talked about the importance of telling others about Jesus and sharing the Good News of His love and His mission for us all.
For me, It’s pretty easy to sink into selfishness. I often want to keep things for myself, whether it be material items or glory for the tasks I complete. I had never really thought about how keeping God’s story to myself could be considered selfish as well. But as we learned today, Jesus told his disciples that their mission was to go and tell the world about him no matter how difficult that may be. That mission remains the same for me, for all of us today. If I took all the situations where I stayed quiet and actually shared about Jesus, I could spread His light and ultimately work to fulfill The Great Commission and what is more important than that? The easy route and personal glory or Jesus?
Today, we pledged to go out into the world and tell everyone about Jesus! I challenge everyone who reads this to take on this mission as well. Put on your serious face and get in your best runners pose like these little ones and go out there and make disciples, tell your friends the Good News!
