And those he predestined, he also called. Romans 8:30
When my children
were elementary school age, and even after they had left home, one of my
passions was to share Jesus with children. I formed an after-school ministry,
The One Way Club. The children would gather at the church for a snack, games,
crafts, a Bible story they could apply to their lives, and songs. The words to
one of the songs we sang were Heaven is a
wonderful place . . . I wanna go there.
I loved hearing
their voices praising God, and my prayer for them was that they would always
love Jesus, grow spiritually, and desire to serve Him someday.
Those children are
adults now. My prayer for them today is that the One Way Club influenced their
lives for eternity.
The One Way Club
was my calling at the time. What is your calling to ministry?
Heavenly Father, thank You for the passion and calling
You instill in your children. It’s all joy to serve You. Amen.
