Holy Week..

It is easy now that Easter has passed to forget about the importance of what Christ did on the Cross. But this act of sacrafice & love was not meant for us to remeber only on Easter or special Christian occassions or even once a week on Sunday for an hour at church. We are to think on Christ, His Sacrafice & our Salvation everyday.

Think about the events of Holy Week... as you think through the events from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday... what touches your heart & life the most? Why?

A New Day...



A new day always brings new opportunities. This day has brought you to my blog.

What will you take away from it?
What will you add to it?

Remember your name

Perspective...


What bothers you more when you are in Praise & Worship, a Church Service or a BCA Chapel...

Your hair being out of place or your heart being out of place?


What others think of you or how you think of others?

When you are in God's presence, what does your mind focus on...

How you can get your friend's attention so you can chat or how you can engage God and allow Him to speak to you?

Thinking of your sucesses as what you have accomplished or thanking God for who you have become in Christ?

You decide...

Remember your name

Form vs. Function


Form:
Anyone can look like a baseball player. They can get a glove, bat, ball... hold the impressive baseball stance... put on a uniform... sport a fashionable baseball cap... they can even swing a bat. Some might even say they are a baseball player.  BUT, none of those things acutally makes them a baseball player.

Function:
Looking the part is not enough.  Saying you are is not enough. You have to actually be a baseball player.

Christian Form:
Anyone can wear a Jesus T-shirt or doodle His name on a notebook... they can go to church or a Christian School... they can learn Bible verses and read their Bible... they can even say they are a Christian. BUT, none of that makes them a Christian.

Christian Function:
Looking the part is not enough. Saying you are is not enough. You have to actually be a Christian.

How:
How do you become a Christian? Are you a Christian? How do you know?

Lookin Up Means Not Lookin Down...



Explain what you have to do as a young believer to keep the world looking up to Jesus and not down on you.

Remember your name...

Stand Out...


As Christians, we are called to be "set apart"... meaning different from the rest of the world. We are to stand our for Jesus!

Use this opportunity to name someone in the Middle School who "stands out" in a positive way. Tell who they are and what unique quality about them makes them "stand out" from the crowd!

Below the Surface...


This is one of my all time favorite pics. It has hung in my classroom for the last three years. I feel that it speaks something about all of us. What does it speak to you?

Followers of Christ...

A Changing World...


God had intended a perfect, united world. Man's sin changed that. With each passing day more pain enters our world. Many people today are hurting, live in poverty, know what true hunger feels like, have felt loss brought about by many disasters...What can you do to help?

Do-Over...

Christ lived as a man, on earth, for 33 years. He was able to get everything right the first time. We, most often times, do not.

If you could have one "do-over", what would it be? Why?

Origins...

Beginning of 4th Quarter

Macroevolution is the belief that "life" was self-generated (created) from non-living (inorganic) material. The right sequence of chemicals "accidently" combined to create the first cell.

Microevolution is the belief that species have the ability to gradually change over time based on pre-exisiting information within the genetic codes of a species. This is well documented, a regular occurance and  would account for why there are so many "kinds" of animals.

Which type of "evolution" is supported by the Bible? What Scripture supports your answer?
