Are We Measuring Up?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Ephesians 3:14-19
Are We Measuring Up?

Do you ever have that one “friend” that you don’t ever see until one day you get some money and they finally come around, and they are all over hoping they can get some money? I know that I’m not the only one. We all want a true friend that will stick by you no matter what, but sometimes it’s hard to find those people in the human race because they are already taken, they changed their ways, or there aren’t anymore, but there will be one person who is always there but you don’t even know it… Jesus. He has always been there since you were born and until you die no matter what you do. If you ever feeling lonely you can just hang out with Jesus, he will have time for you. We need to pray to Jesus more anyway since he has done everything for us, be gives us breath, he give it us food, our basic needs, and etc.
We need to be more greatful for everything given to us because if we don’t the height of our faith goes lower and lower. God has a measuring stick and he uses it to measure our every deed. If you have faith he measures how much faith you have, so let’s keep our self in check so we can get into heaven

Have we taken our eyes off the star?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Matthew 2:10
Have we taken our eyes off the star?

Christmas is over, and we are getting ready for the New Year. Most of the Christmas decorations have been taken down, we been back home from our trips, we have opened all the presents, but that beautiful star is still shining. Since the day Jesus was born the star has been shining and we have been letting that star guide us through our life. You are probably thinking, how does a little star in the night shy guide us through our life, Jesus is that star and he personally makes out how our life is going to be, and his star guides and helps you. That’s why we should never take our eye off the star because it’s like walking away from Jesus.
Jesus will always be by our side and never leave us in the dark, and follow you through your life, so you are never alone. Jesus has promised to never leave you and he never breaks his promises, so we need to let him guide us.
Not only will Jesus follow you he will be there to help you through the way because he won’t just walk with you and do nothing like regular people would do. He going to guide you through the obstacles that come along for life isn’t just a smooth road for there are bumps along the way. We can’t every do anything alone, and we don’t have to since we have that bright star to guide us along the way, so we don’t end up on the wrong side. We will always have that light to light the way.
We all have been somewhere that was dark and you had to use something to light a path. Let’s say that the dark is you trapped in your mind, you are just walking but you have no idea where you are or where you are going, now that light is Jesus, a light appears by your side and you let that light guide you as it lights your path, now you have reached the end you are in heaven and it’s the best, you are overwhelmed with joy, and extremely happy that you were able to find that light to help guide. We can never look away from that’s light or you could lose it, so let not.

The Greatest Gift of All

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

James 1:17
The Greatest Gift of All.

What is the greatest gift of all? Since it’s close to Christmas, you might say I want the newest phone, the newest video game, or whatever you want. Sometimes we forget the most Important gift that is given to us.
From the beginning of time God has always been there for man kind. Even when we do the worst sins God never lets us go. We can’t even count the amount of blessing he gives us every day. Because we are so ignorant at times, God gave up his only son to save us all. We should all know that we should at least give thanks to God for everything he has done for us.
Most of the time during Christmas we think A LOT about presents and food, so we completely forget about the reason we have all those things and what Christmas is really about.

Are We Fit For The Kingdom

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Luke 9:57-62
Are We Fit For The Kingdom?

Do you think that you will make it into heaven? Have you decided everything you could possibly do to know for sure you will make it into the kingdom, of heaven. If not we have to proceed to finish the tasks to make it into the kingdom.

God is trying to make a kingdom here on Earth but it won’t work unless we cooperate with him. To help God make this kingdom we have to have all the believers help. We all must worship and praise God. Also in order to get into the kingdom we must go forward.

People who go forward leave the past behind and move on in their life. We can not look back, we go back, and we definitely can’t stay back. You are not fit for the kingdom if you just keep going back. It’s like a car, in order to go somewhere you have to go forwards, but if you keep going back you will do nothing but crash. Us as people if we keep going back we will crash into obstacles we have already passed. We can’t be the problem in the solution.

Do you want to be the person who ruins everything in the group or the person who can solve the problems. Because those people who cause the problem, are annoying to those people who try to clean up your mess. When you are that person who helps with the problems you don’t get all the hate like the people who cause problems.
If you are still setback you can have a comeback with your comeback faith. If you believe in Lord you can go on your merry way going forwards to the kingdom.
Then once you comeback, you will be fit for the kingdom of heaven.

Are We Faithful To God’s Promises?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Joshua 23:14
Are We Faithful To God’s Promises?

God always will keep his promise know matter what. It might take a couple of days, weeks, or even months, but we have to be patient and it might come sooner. Besides having God as a great promise keeper, who do you know who has ALWAYS kept there promises. Not really anybody; right?
Even the closest friends sometimes can’t keep a promise because nobody is perfect, except for God. Not even you, you have failed to keep your promises. If we fail people on Earth we are most likely to fail God.
God has never failed us. He kept his promise to Noah, Abraham, Moses, to the people who Jesus Christ died for, and to all of us. We have failed to keep our promises to God all the time. But steal we say we won’t do it again; next day we take some jewelry from the store. We are not supposed to do that for it is part of the Ten Commandments. We must be more faithful to God’s promises.

How Deep Is Your Love?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

1 Peter 4:8
How Deep Is Your Love?

How deep is your love actually? Is it like a stream, a pond, an ocean, or is it a love like God’s? We all need to have love like God’s, because his love is unconditional, but we don’t. Our love might a lot but God’s for us is way past all the love you can give to one person. He loves us all EQUALLY, and it is unconditional, which means it will never expire.
Our love expires. When you ask someone to do you a favor they don’t do, but when they ask you for a favor you don’t want to do it, because you want payback. God isn’t like that. When he doesn’t want you to sin, you sin, but when you want something from him he will give it to you. We need a love like God’s love.
With God love we can do lots of things. With that power we can learn to forgive and forget, Instead of holding a grudge. It will help us with making the right decision, instead of doing something we will regret in the future. We need God’s love for many reasons.
God’s love is completely different from our love. It is everlasting, it is faster than the speed of light, it is stronger then a 200lb weight, and it will help you through any situation. No matter the situation you are covered with God’s love.

Are We Ready to Grow Up?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

1 Corinthians 13:9-13
Are We Ready to Grow Up?

God needs us to move forward in order to go somewhere, and by that I mean God wants us to grow up. He, off course, uses children, but he needs the adults to not be childish. He wants us to be mature so he can guide us. We all need to grow up or we will never die and go to heaven!
Why do we need to grow up? Because the vision of God has to move up. We have to grow up and get rid of those grudges, the hatefulness, and every other bad thing we can think of.
We need to grow up in order to get up because if we can’t get up we move on, if we don’t move on we can’t reach the end, and if we can’t reach the end, we can’t meet our heavenly Father. We need to grow up in order to fore fill the Lords vision, and with no vision there are no people because God wants the people on Earth to fore fill his vision.
So we all need to grow up in order to go forward.

Who is on our side?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Psalms 124:1-8
Who is on our side?

Have you been in a situation where everyone is against you, and you feel all alone, you just need someone to be on YOUR side. Well you are never alone; at all times you have God by your side and he will never leave you. If you feel like you have nobody, don’t lose hope because the Lord is on your side. If it’ll wasn’t for God where would you be now. You wouldn’t be ok n Earth, you wouldn’t have gone through life, you wouldn’t have been able to do anything. If God never existed nothing on this world, or in the whole universe would be here.
If you don’t have a right hand guy, you have a right hand God. God will be the most dependable, trustful, and best friend you can ever have.
If you have nobody else to trust you can always depend on the Lord because he never let you down, if you are going through some hard times, pray to Jesus and he will fix your problem, if you need anything ever pray to your best friend and he promises you that he won’t let you down. If it wasn’t for the Lord where would you be now? You need to praise God as long as you can or your best friend might just be the devil. If you fail people will judge you people you know, people you don’t know, people you do know, even you best friend will judge you he/she just won’t say it directly to you, but Christ will never judge you because he knows we all make mistakes. We all have someone by our side always, and that person is always God.

How do we handle our Jordan River?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words. )

Joshua 3:1-5
How do we handle our Jordan River?

Everyone has a Jordan River, but what is the Jordan River? It’s the path that stands between everything, when you have make a decision to stay in that one place or go on with with your life. People will try to play tricks or short cut their way across the river, but the river goes on and on and on, do there are no short cuts. Let’s say it your time to go and you are on your way to the kingdom but before you get there you have to get across Jesus. There are no tricks just and, so what will you do. You try to go through Jesus.
God wants you to get to your future but you your future is across your Jordan River. You need to move across.
We need to trust in God so we can get across you river. You have to move out if you’re position and concentrate ok getting to the other side of your Jordan River. Moving your position is just like turning 18 you have to move out, but your so used to living with your parents, so you don’t want to leave.
Sometimes we over think ourselves so we go farther away from our Jordan River, but it comes right back at in point. We all have to trust God because we don’t do anything by ourselves. If the Lord is ready to move than we move with him. If Jesus wasn’t scared to cross his Jordan River the we shouldn’t be either. We have to follow the Lord in order to get to the kingdom.
Follow the Lord and get over your Jordan River.

Are we ready for our brand new future

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words. )

2 Corinthians 5:17
Are we ready for our brand new future?

God always calls his people to a new future such as; Abraham when he was asked to move, Jonah inside the whale, or Daniel and the lions den. Your future is here right now, you don’t know where it is, but God will slowly guide you to your knew future. We have no idea what the future holds for us, but God does since he is the one who made it. Most of us can sometimes be lazy, well every single person on this earth will be lazy, we won’t want to do anything, or move one muscle, but that will not stop God from pushing you away from your couch and out to your brand new future.
We are more powerful than we think, we are creative, intelligent, and most importantly faithful, and combining those powers we can do so many things to serve God, and we can use our talents such as; singing, playing an instrument, or writing story’s, we can use those things to serve God too.
Right now God is preparing us for our future, but in order to get there you have to get past grudges and over our enemies in order to reach our future.
