A Passion to Know God

Yesterday in Good News Club, I met with a 4th grade boy who is new to the club. I asked him if he was new to Schumaker school. He said no. I asked what brought him to Good News Club later in the year. He said one day he was taking care of his little cousin, and she knew God. She knew a lot of things about God too. And he didn't know God or anything about Him. He said he really wanted to, so he asked his mom if he could learn about God. She said yes and signed him up for Good News Club, like his kindergarten cousin.

When we talked about God's plan for us, he hung on my every word. He didn't want to miss a thing. He enthusiastically prayed asking Jesus to be his Savior. He was thrilled to hear that his name is now written in the Book of Life. He was equally thrilled to learn that everything God wants us to know is in the Bible. He was going to start reading the one his Good News Club teacher gave him.

We know and believe that God is the most amazing gift we can offer anyone! How fun to see a person's joy when they personally meet Him. It is such an honor and priviledge to introduce someone to eternity with the One True God, and to a lifetime of joy as he walks intimately with Him! Lord, please continue to grow him in his walk with You!

1 Chronicles 16:23
Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.
