Three cheers for Tuesday

Well that's another day gone; an enjoyable one to be honest. I spent most of today in St Geraldine's Primary School in Lossiemouth, Grampian, Scotland. I have visited this school before but not for a few years. 

The school day started at 9 a.m. with a visit to Primary 2, not quite the youngest class but young enough. They really enjoyed learning about 'respect' and the story of David, the shepherd, being anointed as King. Saul, the existing King, wasn't too respectful when it came to Samuel, the prophet, God or David. David, however, had learned to practise what the Lord Jesus would teach many years later - 'love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you,' Matthew 5;44.

Each class really enjoyed singing our song for the day which was:

It was 2000 years ago, 
Christ Jesus came to earth to show, 
the love of God for all humanity
He helped and healed 
And share and taught
And everyone who met Him thought
He was a special friend from Galilee

It was 2000 years ago, 
Christ Jesus came to earth to show, 
the love of God for all humanity
He bled and died
And then arose
And everyone who trusts Him knows
He is the Saviour Christ of Calvary

This song goes to a tune that the children really like and sing well. By the end of the session all the children knew where Galilee is, what a Saviour is and where Calvary is? Do you? I am sure you do, any questions please get in touch. 

What is so special about being involved in these types of activities is that I am sharing great principles about how to live well and be respectful. In addition to this I am able to explain why we don't behave well at times, why God calls it sin, what the consequences of sin are and how God loves everyone of us and sent His 'Son to be the Saviour of the world,' 1 John 4:14. Ultimately this means that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, can be your Saviour when you confess your sin and trust Him for salvation.

Today was a good day in Lossiemouth, I wonder if it a good day in your life and if in heaven there was rejoicing over one sinner who repented of their sin and was saved and safe for eternity, Luke 15:7.
