Vacation Bible school is always a great time at our church. The fun and fellowship is made sweeter because we know that our labor has eternal consequences.
A note came to the church recently that tells us how powerful Vacation Bible School really is:
I am writing you to say thank you for the things of God you helped build inside of me years ago. I am now 43 years old and still think of your Bible School I attended as a child. Recently while getting a devotion together to teach to our Wednesday night group at church, Psalms 100 came to me. I learned this scripture at a Bible School held by your church. We sang it in a song. Since then I have known it by heart and have quoted it several times along the way. I’m not sure who the leaders were during that time, but the lessons they taught are still a great memory.
I’m now married to a wonderful Christian man who is the Pastor of the church we attend. I have three children, and have a good Christian foundation, in which I owe your church much of the credit. Thank you again for your dedication to teaching children about the love of Jesus Christ.
My prayers be with you,
Wow! What an inspirational reminder of how the Lord uses VBS to impress his love and truth on the lives of children. God works through our efforts to touch the hearts and minds of children in ways that last a lifetime. It truly is a great honor to serve the Lord through Vacation Bible School.
Our labor in the Lord is not in vain because the Lord we serve knows the beginning from the end and he is able to do the impossible.
May the greatness and the understanding of our Lord shine brightly in your vacation Bible school this year,
