How do you shine for Jesus?
Today we gathered together as a community as the students in Grade 1 and 2 led us in Chapel. They shared with us about our theme – Shine!
“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven.” Matt 5:16
Together we sang our theme song – Everyday. One of the lines in the song says: Everyday, Lord, I’ll learn to stand upon your word. The students in Grade 1 and 2 spent some time thinking about God’s word and how people in the Bible shone for Jesus.
Solomon lived for Jesus because he could choose one thing out of everything and he chose wisdom.
Abraham lived everyday for Jesus by leaving his home and going where God told him.
Sarah lived everyday for Jesus by believing and trusting that she would have a baby.
Another line in the song says: I give all that I am to you, that everyday I can be a light unto the world. The students all did a lego build about how they can shine. They shared lots of different ways that they shine – by saying kind words, by helping others, by giving things to others, and by playing with others. At the chapel they shared a video showing their lego builds. You can watch the video here:
We are thankful to the students in Grade 1 and 2 for reminding us of how so many people in the Bible shone for Jesus and for encouraging us to shine in little and big ways each day.
How will you shine for Jesus today?
