the SHOES of THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
“Then Jesus said, “Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God’s good news to one and all.” Mark 16:15
Last Sunday we learned about the shoes of the gospel of peace and how important it is to have a good pair of shoes or boots to wear!
What are your favourite pair of shoes to wear? Are they sparkly or glittery? Are they one colour or lots of colours? Do they have many laces to tie up or are they easy to slip on your feet so you can go, go, go!!! Right now a good choice of shoes to wear aren’t shoes at all, but boots! Our boots protect our feet from the cold and ice and snow.
God gave us an important (and fun!) job to do. He wants us to tell his story to our friends. He gives us a good pair of “shoes” to wear to protect our feet while we share his good news. Do you remember the truths we talked about in Kidventure? About how Jesus was born, died, arose, ascended and will return again? And about how God loves us all? God want us to share that good news with the people we know.
Has God ever done anything wonderful for you? That’s also something we can tell our friends about. Is there anything kind or thoughtful that you can think of to do for a neighbour or a friend? That’s also sharing God’s good news! There are so many ways to share God’s love with others!
Pray that God would help you share his good news with people that you know. Then take a look at this video that tells the story of Paul and Silas who decided that, no matter what, they would keep telling God’s story and sharing God’s love with anyone who would listen.
