Tonights Class

I teach on Wednesday nights and I am l-o-v-i-n it!! I have only been at my church for four months now and I have to admit I was reluctant to take a class to teach. My pastor met with me and talked extensively with me about my gifts and we prayed and finally I gave in. I wanted to say no because I didn't know if I was ready or not. The whole self doubt thing creeping in I suppose. I prayed hard but the Lord wouldn't release me to say no. Once I had committed myself I really felt good about it. Obedience feels good. It also feels good that my pastor knew what the Lord was calling me to do I must say this is new for me also. He just smiles at me now as he is learning how hestitant I can be and I am learning to trust him.

After the first day with the children I would be teaching I was ecstatic. These kids have hearts so deep, a good portion of them are bused in and their lives are on the hard side if you know what I mean. I also have several that come from God fearing homes and are very well versed in the Bible and have a great understanding of salvation and the bible. It is a good balance and the Lord uses those familiar with Him to help some of the others understand things. They even help me word things in different ways so it makes more sense to the class. I find it incredible. It was definitely a God thing because they bonded with me as strongly as I bonded with them. They listen when I speak. That is a great accomplishment in itself and I give God the praise and glory for it.

Tonight the Lord softened and opened hearts. I had three receive the free gift of salvation from the Lord!!! WooHooooo!!! Praise God! And all I can do is sing and worship my Savior Jesus Christ, my glorious Father, the miraculous Holy Spirit......Praise Your Holy Name J-E-S-U-S!!!

Lord You are good, And Your mercy endureth forever

We worship Y-O-U
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We worship Y-O-U
For who You are!!

We worship You for who You are
For who You are, For who You are
And You are GOOD!!!

Ro 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Mt 12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 11:1 And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.

Acts 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

Acts 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

Ro 10:10-15 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Joh 3:15-18 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
