Faith:  Believing in what you can’t see because of what you can see.

 Sometimes we lose sight of what God’s doing in our lives. But we can see all of the many other ways God reveals Himself. Through the things we can see, we can believe that what the Bible says about God is true.  When we recognize God at work around us, we respond to Him with trust. We have confidence He has a plan for our lives, and we are willing to take risks to see that plan accomplished. Even in our moments of doubt, God will show us something to remind us to have faith.

During this month’s Bible Stories, our kids will see examples in Jesus’ disciples, Peter and John, as well as Nicodemus, of faithfulness, and at times struggles with doubt and fear.  We want our kids to know that although we might not clearly see and understand everything about a relationship with God, we can ask questions and read our Bibles to learn more.  Faith is believing that what God says is true, that we will live with Him forever, even when we can’t see every detail about how it happens.  As we have more experiences with God, we see more of His strength and power. 

This month’s KC service project is on Sunday, February 9th:  We will make Valentine’s Day Cards for our seniors and shut-ins.  Let us know if your family might be interested in hand delivering some cards over Valentine’s Day weekend. 

The monthly memory verse is: “Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being certain of what we do not see,” Hebrews 11:1, NIrV..
