Sunday School Basics

Praise the Lord for story time in my Preschool I class.
A dear brother teaches the HUGE truths so very well that it rocks my faith once in awhile....bringing me back to the beauty found in the basics.

He and his wife made up this little song called "Faith is"

"Faith is, O faith is, believing what God said.
Faith is, O faith is, believing what God said.
Faith is, O faith is, believing what God said; God will do it like He said."

Ah ! The great grace given to the BBC parents to take critical truths and turn them into catchy little songs - such a blessing.....

So, our lesson was about how the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness after Israel's disobedience and the grumblers were all bit by poisonous serpents.........but of those who were bitten, if they looked upon the bronze serpent - God told them that they would be spared.
It was not that the bronze serpent could do anything.....but the point was that God had given a simple command that was to be obeyed in Faith that what He said was true.
(He also made such a great point about how the bronze serpent is a "type" of something to come....and how it points to God's plan to save us from our sins by "looking unto Jesus.")

Seeing Jesus as the only promise of forgiveness offered to us by God. The only way of escaping the inevitable future of wrath and fury that a sinner should expect to come upon them.
If we have put our faith in what God said as truth (as in that little song) and we fix our eyes on Jesus - the author and perfecter of our faith.......we will be saved. God said so.

Our hearts goal should be to not take our eyes off of Him.......

1 Cor 15:55
"O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"

Rev 12:11
"And they have conquered Him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony. For they loved not their lives even unto death."

To our great High Priest, King, Prophet, the Sacrifice and the Altar that makes the sacrifice Holy.......Jesus the Christ......1 4 3.

Reminds me of what James M. does with his order to help them remember(and even us).... he turns Truth into music! He was doing that with me yesterday during our D-Time! :0)

I love DaTruth's music too! Cross Movement is the best! I love it when they drop good theology to a dope beat! Word!
