This past week was my turn to teach the lesson in the third grade Sunday school class and the lesson was on Daniel in the lion’s den. (Daniel 6) Each week over the summer, the lessons have focused on a different aspect of God.
God is Holy. God is Omniscient. God is Omnipotent – Shadrach, Meschach, and Abendego in the fiery furnace. God protects me – (Daniel in the lion’s den)
A week ago, the director of my Bible study asked if anyone would share their testimony of how they came to know Jesus as their personal Savior. Several people shared their story. As I listened, I was thinking, “I should really video these.”
So, I brought my tablet on Sunday planning to ask a few of the people who shared the week before if I could record them. Becky just happened to be the first person that I asked. And this is her story:
While it may seem cliche, I am very thankful that I live in a country where we can worship God freely and openly without infringement. As of today anyway.
Just because it is that way now, it doesn’t mean it will always be that way if we do not guard it carefully. There is a huge force to minimize, to trivialize,and even to criminalize Bible believing Christians. We are the new group that is on the government “watch lists.” People are being penalized for standing firm for their faith.
