Step 1 – KNOW
We started off this Promotion Sunday in the Middle School Ministry (MSM) casting vision in a creative way for our three main steps we take in Middle School.
Here you go – KNOW, GROW, SHOW.
Yea, it’s simple, but I believe these are thoughts we need to have as we walk toward making Jesus #1 in our lives.
1 John 5:11-13 Speaks to one aspect of the KNOW step…
“And this is the testimony, that
that God gave us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
Whoever has the Son has life;
whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.”
Just like the void of a Do-Nut, we have a GOD-Sized Hole in our hearts that can only be filled with Eternal Life. According to 1 John, it is super simple. JESUS fills that HOLE with ETERNAL LIFE!!!! What I enjoy about John is that he decided to write 1John so that everyone can truly KNOW how to have ETERNAL LIFE.
Do YOU KNOW that you have ETERNAL LIFE?
Great, that is the first step to KNOW, GROW, SHOW.
By the way, we have to give a shout out to Theresa at the Shipley Do-Nut shop on Loop 337. She totally gave us the run of the place and allowed us to take clips to show on Sunday Mornings for this series. I even found myself taking an “impromptu” order for two Kolaches at the window!!!
