I Love Vacation Bible School

We wrap up Vacation Bible School Friday for another year. VBS is one glorious week of summer vacation for me. The work is hard, and I’m exhausted at the end of the day, but I cherish those five summer days.

The joy I get from teaching the kids is unspeakable.

What amazes me more is the simplicity of the Gospel message we share with the kids. This year gave me pause to think and apply these simple lessons to my own walk with Jesus.

The Gospel doesn’t get much simpler than this:

Theme: Discover  Decide  Defend
Discover the evidence about Jesus in God’s Word.
Decide to believe it or not.
Defend what you believe to be truth.

Weekly verse: Honor the Messiah as Lord in your heart. And always be prepared to give a defense to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you. 1 Peter 3:15

  • Day 1 — Jesus is really God’s Son. Matthew 3:13-17; John 1:29-36
  • Day 2 — Jesus was more than a good man. Mark 6:1-6,30-56
  • Day 3 — Jesus’ death was real  Mark 15:33-40
  • Day 4 — Jesus is alive  Luke 24:1-48
  • Day 5 — Share what we believe with others Acts 2:32
