I Was Just Thinking …. About Kids being Kids!

Yesterday was a fun and exciting day at Eva Drive Baptist Church. Most everything we did centered around Christmas – the story of the Christ Child’s birth. There was laughter, singing, preaching, worship …. and kids! Usually we have a children’s church for the little ones in another part of our building but yesterday they stayed with big church for the morning worship. The Bible says, “and a child shall lead them.” And lead them he did!!! After every song our worship team lead the cutest little boy would stand, clap and yell “yea, Yea.” The worship team does a good job – but I believe with that genuine praise and encouragement, they were even better! God truly does know how use a child to touch the hearts of mankind. Soon everyone was encouraging the worship team and more importantly worshipping God.

 

When the afternoon rolled around we came together again for our Christmas program and supper. (yes I said supper – we are Baptist – BBQ, slaw, baked beans, yellow cake!) One of the young ladies in our church wrote a program for our children. It was a combination of original setting and modern telling. (I hear Oscar buzz for our writer – for best Christmas screen play) The children acted it out to perfection! Part of the fun was that most of the kids played multiple parts with costume changes performed on stage. Did I mention they occasionally drifted from the script with unknowingly hilarious ad libs that would make Hollywood jealous! I feel sure that stand up comedy is in the future for a few of these kids – J & J. I am hiding their names till they hire me to be their agent.

 

Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas. He is the promised Savour that will deliver mankind from sin. It’s amazing how sometimes God uses children to remind us of this great promise fulfilled!  Merry Christmas!
