Word Filled Wednesday
I am up to 12 Sparkies on Wednesday nights. Praise the Lord!! Tonight my devotion was taken from 1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Last week I gave a devotion using a pumpkin and I explained to the kids that we should be a shining light for Jesus. I had one child ask me how to be saved. I was so nervous, but I explained it the best I could and one kid jumped in and said "He forgave ONE of my sins." I have thought this week that that would make a perfect devotion for this week. So I decided to use this verse to explain that he forgives ALL our sins and he also forgives EVERYBODY'S sins. I was starting to get a little frustrated because Wednesday nights have been so crazy lately, but tonight was wonderful. I worked with 3 kids that were just wonderful. They quoted scriptures left and right. It is wonderful to hear the kids quoting God's word!!
