Go Into All The World And Preach The Gospel

Posted on Updated on

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15

This commandment from Jesus shows us the importance of witnessing to others. Teach your kids that they can witness anywhere they are and with who ever they are with. They can grow up to be missionaries and preach the gospel around the world or they can witness with their friends at school.

“…and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8

I forgot to include a picture of the continent piece, but it is available in the template.

Let Your Light Shine Sun Catcher

Posted on Updated on

“14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Wolves In Sheeps Clothing

Posted on Updated on

Some people are like wolves who pretend to be sheep. They act and dress like the sheep, only to destroy the lambs once they are among them.  We should teach our kids that the Bible tells us how we can figure out which sheep are true sheep, and which are wolves. This emphasizes the importance of reading and knowing Scripture.
