In the Wednesday Kids 4 Truth class for elementary children, our theme for this whole year is
We learn a new truth amd scripture verse about the Bible each week, and we review all of the previous truths we have learned. One of the first "truths" we learned is that
"The Bible is completely true!" We learned that the Bible is God's inspired word that He gave to Holy men to write down for Him.
In the once a month, Girls' Bible Study, His Girl, the following is one of the first passages discussed:
1 Peter 1:13-21ESV
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hoope fully on the grace that will be brought to you in the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance., but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy." And if you call on Him as Father, who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or sport. He was foreknown before the foundation of the owrld butr was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you, who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and Yogave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
These are His precious words to us today.
The 16 year old girl, who I mentioned in my previous post, having possible Gall Bladder issues, did have a very infected Gall Bladder and had surgery this morning. Please keep her in your prayers.
