SERMON: July 29th, 2018 VBS Maker Fun Factory Sunday “God Made You”

“Why it Matters…
Today’s kids are in the unique position to compare themselves to the entire world.  Social media gives us all a mirror to which we compare ourselves, and it can feel like there’s always someone who’s better, prettier, smarter, more athletic, more adventurous, and just all-around more!  …You’ll have the opportunity to help kids (and even leaders) set aside the mirror and simply rest in the realization that the same God who created the entire planet also formed their fingers, toes, brain, and being with His skillful hands.”

“Take a look around you and you’ll likely see people of all ages showing what they believe in.  T-shirts proudly promote superheroes, ball caps shout logos of sports teams, bumper stickers tell what political candidates we like, and bracelets call our our connection to charitable causes.  Kids know what it means to rally behind a cause, person, or team.  …On days when they feel like they don’t have a friend in the world or when everything seems to be against them, kids can find comfort in knowing that God is on t heir side…”

“Of the many incredible things God offers us, His love is undoubtedly the greatest.  Unfortunately true love might be an increasingly difficult concept for kids…to grasp.  We claim to love everything from hamburgers to sports teams, so it’s easy to see where this confusion comes from.  But God’s powerful love is transforming because it’s unfailing and undeserved…God’s pure love is real, unending, and stronger than our shortcomings…”

God created us intentionally – “No child is an accident.  No child is meaningless.”
