Keys For Kids Ministries

Bible Reading: Luke 15:1-7"Today I want to tell you a story about some ducks that live by my house," Mr. Peters told his Sunday school class as the kids gathered for their lesson time. Clara eagerly sat down to listen. "Yesterday I was down at my pond and saw a mama duck and her four little ducklings," Mr. Peters said. "They were all just swimming around enjoying themselves when suddenly the mama duck swam frantically to the edge of the pond. She led her four little ducklings back to their nest and then started desperately searching around. I watched intently, wondering what she was doing. It wasn't too long before I discovered what she was searching for.""What was it?" asked one of the kids."She was looking for her lost duckling," Mr. Peters replied. "She really had five ducklings, not four!""Did she find him?" asked Clara anxiously. Mr. Peters nodded. "He had gotten separated from the others and was alone on the other side of the pond. His mother found him and returned him to the nest, safe and sound." Clara and the other kids breathed sighs of relief."This is a good example of what our Bible lesson is about today," Mr. Peters continued. "In Luke 15, Jesus tells the parable of the lost sheep. Clara, would you read it for us?" Everyone opened their Bibles, and Clara began to read.When she finished reading, Mr. Peters said, "Just like the mama duck on my pond went searching for her lost duckling, the shepherd in Jesus's story searched for his lost sheep. Jesus told that parable to help us understand that He is our Good Shepherd and that He cares for us in the same way. When we were lost in sin, He came to find us. He became human, died on the cross for our sins, and then rose again so we could be rescued and spend eternity with Him. If you're lost, trust Jesus as your Savior today."As the kids moved on to craft time, Clara couldn't get the lost duckling from Mr. Peter's story out of her mind. After class, she went up to her teacher. "Mr. Peters? II don't want to be lost anymore. I want to trust in Jesus and be found." -Lisa FullerHow About You?Are you lost? If you haven't trusted Jesus as your Savior, you are like the lost duckling from today's story needing to be rescued. Our sin has separated us from God, so Jesus came to find us and save us. He is searching for you. Trust in Him today and you will have a home with Him for all eternity.Today's Key Verse:For the Son of Man [Jesus] came to seek and save those who are lost.

“When we see isolated incidents, we should not judge the whole world. When we see racism and hatred, those things are not of God but the devil.” After just having celebrated MLK Day, we talk on the podcast this week to an African-American sheriff in Georgia about the late Dr. King, plus how he's personally dealt with racism, being a bold Christian who practices his faith daily, handling negative views of law enforcement, and more. (5:06) We start our chat with Muscogee County Sheriff Greg Countryman (in Columbus GA) about looking at increased violence – record number of homicides – from a spiritual perspective, with the message being to humble ourselves and stop moving away from God. This sheriff, who's also an ordained minister, talks about prayer and fasting being specific and intentional. As we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior (11:29), our guest on the pod talks about the lessons taken from the courageous civil rights icon, who used scripture with all he did. (13:22) As a black sheriff, he also has a lot to say about racism, and how isolated incidents create teachable moments. He's dealt with racial issues too, as a Plains GA native, but wants to forgive like Jesus. With numerous faith-related college degrees, (16:05) how did he get into law enforcement? The dream started for him in the 5th grade. Sheriff Countryman also opens up about overcoming a bad stutter and learning disability, which is partly why he wants to be a voice for the voiceless and why he stays so close to God who brought him this far. (19:27) With more of an anti-police mindset nowadays, this 31-year law enforcement veteran from GA talks about inaction creating problems, building trust back, and special training. Sheriff Countryman also tells the story about being shot at, but why he didn't fire back. (29:14) I asked this unabashed Jesus follower how others can also be bold Christians and share their faith. Part of it is who your friends are. At his sheriff's office, he's always saying, “The Lord is with us.” He's also proud to have brought up 3 sons in the faith. (36:45) So, how do criminals react to his approach and faith? Also, why did he have to remove Bibles from the jail he's in charge of? We talk some about (41:29) the impact of COVID-19 on law enforcement, views of death and faith. (46:01) Sheriff Countryman closes us in prayer. (49:04) In the final segments, the “Food for Thought” is about law enforcement and faith, while we get some “Parting Gift” wisdom from MLK. Thanks for listening!

Across Africa, the church is undergoing attacks on its members and their meeting places. Yet despite the destruction, our Christian brothers and sisters exhibit an overwhelming joy in Christ. Sean Paton and Jeremy Malkin continue the conversation from last week on VOM's efforts to help our persecuted brothers in Burkina Faso, Benin, Sudan, and Mozambique. Listen as Jeremy and Sean share how Christians are responding to the persecution in these regions—and also share encouraging stories of God's work in Africa during the past year. Animistic ideology and belief in the spirits of their ancestors is prevalent in Benin. Christianity is often seen as destroying that culture. New believers are rejecting the rituals and practices of animism and holding fast to their faith in Christ, and therefore being targeted. In Burkina Faso, thirteen churches were destroyed within a week last year by mobs who wanted to rid the area of Christianity. Yet our brothers and sisters gathered to worship the Lord amidst the destruction because of their hope in Him. Listen as Jeremy shares their stories and how we can pray for them. In Mozambique, there has been horrific persecution of Christians by Islamic extremist groups who have pledged allegiance to ISIS. This has forced many Christians to flee, and VOM is helping to meet physical needs and spiritual hunger for God's Word. In Sudan, political tension continues to grow, which has given a window to provide spiritual encouragement and support to Christians through Bibles and other evangelistic resources. Pray for our brothers and sisters to be bold and courageous for Christ in Africa as they face animistic and Islamist persecution, and to be reminded that what men intend for evil, God can use for good.

On today's episode, the guys tackle the topic of the power of God's word. In Ray's experience, when you are saved, God's word leaves you in a never ending honeymoon phase. Value impacts behavior and when we value Christ, we understand that His word is direct communication to us. According to 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction and righteousness that the man of God may be fully equipped for every good word.” Many Christians who find themselves at a shipwrecked point in their lives end up there because they have strayed from God's instructions. The same words which spoke the earth into existence are found in our Bibles.  Then, the guys reflect on the importance of reading the Bible every single day, without fail. We often forget that we are soldiers of Christ and our food is His word. Meditate on His word and let that be your nutrients for the day ahead. Even in Christianity, there is a massive issue with Biblical illiteracy. The Bible isn't just there for occasional reference, but is an opportunity for us to spend time with God. God's word is an acquired taste and requires discipline and time spent with it to develop the taste. If you are unfamiliar with the Bible, you are encouraged to pick a small book as a starting point and really familiarize yourself with it. Christ is our hope, and without Christ or the desire for His word, we are hopeless. The “care” method for Biblical literacy helps participants comprehend, analyze, reform and enjoy God's word.  Thanks for listening!

This time of year many Christians make New Year's resolutions that often include spiritual disciplines like reading our Bibles every day, praying more, or sinning less. And perhaps, the biggest resolutions many Christians make is that they want have more faith.And regardless of having the best intentions most of us at some point have ended up dropping the ball on those resolutions sometimes when we're not even too far into the new year. When it comes to having the desire to read our Bible more, pray more, sin less, and especially, have more faith, we can't approach it as a check list of things we need to do. Its all about what we do. It's not about us "upping" our game.RC Sproul said everything begins and ends with our view of God. So the way we do pray more, sin less, increase our faith, isn't by striving in our strength, but by upping the object of those things. We need to elevate our view of God. We need to see Him as He truly is.

Love Thy Nay Bor Anthony Wilson pt 2 We've heard the scripture from Mark chapter 12 verse 31 and  Matthew chapter 22 verse 39, which says, “love your neighbor as yourself”, the imperative word here being “as.” The long form of this phrase would be “love your neighbor as you love yourself.” This implies that in order to be kind, compassionate, and generous to our neighbor, we must first be these things to ourselves. Amen! For many people, they “know the verse” but have difficulty in implementation. For others, they try too hard to implement the verse and end in strife. For others, they just ignore it completely and are out for themselves. Our guest today is Apostle Anthony Wilson, host of the https://anchor.fm/anthony-wilson (“Love Thy Nay Bor Podcast”) (spelled NAY and BOR). Anthony is on a mission to equip, encourage and elevate God's people and to reach those who are far off and to bring them closer to God. He does this through sound doctrine and teaching and, through his podcast! Praise God!  He is also the author of the book titled, https://amzn.to/3FuDo2X (“The Hand of God.”) This book discusses true Biblical prosperity and success as a Christian. This is part two of what turned out to be an awesome three part interview! (we pick up the discussion of doing a deep dive in our Bible study time) How did or how has COVID affected your ministry? There was a time, not to long ago, when almost everyone brought their own Bible's to church so they could follow along with the pastor.  Now, they rely on the screen to provide them with a scripture reference and most people do not know how to “turn to a specific” scripture on their own. They're lost when it comes to looking up scripture. What is your take on using the large screens with scripture references, etc. in churches today. I know they serve a purpose, but I believe they are actually dumbing down church goers.  What is your take on this? You believe the average Christian should be studying their Bible more, and I agree. But why is it most Christians today actually study LESS than just a few years ago?  Again, I relate some of that back to church goers not using their own Bibles in services. Folks, so many things are happening simultaneously instead of independently. And the Bible clearly tells us when these thing are happening all at the same time, to “Look up – for our redemption IS drawing near!” What better gift can you give than the Word of God and the ability to understand it.

Acts 4:2

BIBLE IN TEN

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 4, 2022 7:14


Tuesday, 4 January 2022   being greatly disturbed that they taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. Acts 4:2   The previous verse saw the priests, the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees coming upon Peter, John, and the beggar. Now, the account continues, saying, “being greatly disturbed.”   The verb is diaponeomai. It comes from dia (through) and poneomai (to work hard). Hence, it gives the sense of great distress or vexation. One might say, “troubled through and through,” or “thoroughly vexed.” These leaders were highly agitated “that they taught the people.”   Although what they taught is not yet stated, the very fact that these men were standing in the temple teaching would have been enough of a source of grief for them to be indignant. As has been seen in the gospels and already in Acts, the leaders looked at these men as uneducated Galileans.   How could they know anything of value concerning theology or what was culturally or morally right? It was only they, the priests, Levites, Sadducees, and other elites, that could debate such higher points. Not mere Galileans. But what really galled them was that they stood there teaching the people “and preached in Jesus”   The words are correct, and they clean up a grievous error of the KJV which says, “through Jesus.” The Greek preposition en (in), not dia (through), is used. The preaching of John and Paul is “in Jesus” and it concerns “the resurrection from the dead.”   It is true that the resurrection of the dead for all people comes through Jesus, but this is not the point that John and Peter are making. Rather, it was Jesus who had resurrected just a short time ago. The point isn't just that people standing there being preached to will be resurrected through Jesus, but that Jesus had resurrected. He is the firstfruits of those to be resurrected (1 Corinthians 15:20). If Jesus had not first resurrected, there would be no resurrection. This is the very argument that Paul makes in 1 Corinthians 15 –   “Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. 15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. 16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. 17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! 18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.” 1 Corinthians 15:12-19   Paul goes on with his logical argument in that chapter explaining all of the finer details that exist because of what occurred “in Jesus.” The truly galling point to these men is that it was they and the other leaders of Israel who had stood before Pilate calling out for His crucifixion. If Jesus had resurrected, then it meant that they had crucified their Messiah.   Such a notion could not be tolerated, and it vexed them through and through to even have it considered. If the resurrection is found in Jesus, then everything that they clung to – their status, their power, their influence – would be taken from them and would belong to the One they had done away with just a short time ago. To them, this was a great affront, and it could not be allowed to be conveyed to the people.   Life application: Again, and again, we see the importance of proper translation concerning the Bibles we use. When giving a general reading of Scripture for our daily devotionals, it may not seem so overly important. At such times, we just read to get an appreciation for the general sense of what is said.   However, as we mature in our thinking concerning Scripture, or when we attend studies that are intended to convey proper doctrine, it becomes more and more important to know exactly and precisely what is being said. Words have meaning. Sentence structure carries ideas that can be misunderstood. Tenses convey the thoughts of the author. If such are botched up, like the translation of the KJV above, real errors in thinking will eventually occur.   Fortunately, the theology of what is conveyed in this verse, and which was mistranslated by the KJV, is properly explained elsewhere. We cannot say, “Well then, no harm no foul.” That is incorrect. The concept of what is conveyed in Acts 4 is important and it is to be rightly understood by those who are reading and thinking on what is being said. Thus, it is important to not get captivated by one translation.   Instead, be studious in your daily reading and change up translations from time to time. This will give you a broader sense of what is going on. When you come to something that doesn't read as you once read it, you should then say, “I need to find out which is correct, and why!” When reading this word, you are reading the very words conveyed to us by God. Therefore, let us pursue it as best we can for all our days.   Gracious heavenly Father, help us to see what is right and proper concerning various translations of Your precious word. Lead us to understand it more and more each day, and to think on the minutest of details that can actually have the greatest of meaning to the overall narrative. In rightly knowing Your word, we will more closely match our thinking with what You are telling us. May it be so to Your glory. Amen.

Psalm 86.11 NLT 'Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth!' I wonder what your school teachers were like. I suspect that we all had a wide range experiences. I reflect on my own teachers. Some of them were strict, others were encouraging, a few were inspiring, some seemed to be in the wrong job, others were funny and more of them thought they were funny! Teachers vary enormously. But when it comes to learning about life itself, we need the very best teacher, and here David recognises that God is that teacher. God is often spoken of as Israel's teacher. In Isaiah 2.3 the prophet identified Jerusalem as the centre of education for the world when he wrote, “People from many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of Jacob's God. There he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” For the Lord's teaching will go out from Zion; his word will go out from Jerusalem.” Sadly, God's teaching was often rejected by the people. In Jeremiah's prophecy we hear God saying, “They have turned their back to Me and not their face; though I taught them, teaching again and again, they would not listen and receive instruction.” (Jeremiah 32.33) Aren't they painful words? No one likes to have someone turn their back on them, but when God's own people reject his teaching it must be excruciatingly painful. If we are to grow in our walk with God, we need to listen hard to his instruction. Many people will help us on that journey but God is the source of all faithful teaching. He sends us preachers and teachers, Bibles and study books, and surrounds us with Christian friends who can help us to understand what he is saying to us. To use the powerful language of Jeremiah's prophecy we need to make sure that we turn our faces to his teaching and not our backs. QUESTION: What is God teaching you at the moment? PRAYER: Loving Father, thank you that your teaching always encourages and strengthens us. Amen

Brother ‘Joshua' is a church leader in Cuba. He says for Christians on the island, persecution is expected. Police regularly call Joshua in for interrogation; every time they call, he feels intimidation and fear about what might happen. However, as the questioning begins, he says he can feel God's presence and God's provision of an answer for each question. As he senses God's power taking over, he says his fear shrinks and disappears. Joshua will give an update on the persecution of the church in Cuba, including one church which recently had its building demolished by the government. Have things changed for the church since the death of Fidel Castro? How difficult is it for Christians to obtain Bibles? How do pastors deal with the knowledge that every time they preach, government spies are present to watch, listen and cause problems?

Brother Joshua from Cuba says he's afraid every time he encounters Cuban police or authorities—but trusts God will give him the words to say. Maria says she told God that if He was calling her to dangerous work in restricted nations, He needed to take away her fear—and God answered her prayer! Alayu from Ethiopia was given a choice: “choose Jesus or my gun.” He explained to his persecutor that he'd already made that choice: he chose Jesus. Brother Joe was almost overcome by a spirit of fear when he was told a spy had infiltrated his Bible smuggling network. Listen to how he prayed—and the Biblical example that inspired him to overcome. Paul and Suzy Childers serve together in ministry with YWAM. Listen to how they consistently send each other out into difficulties and danger, trusting each other into the Lord's care. Cheng Jie and her husband—a Chinese pastor—had talked about what would happen if he was arrested. But they weren't prepared for her to be the one who went to jail. Both Gracia and Semse lost their husbands to persecution attacks. They shared how they have been able to bear that loss—and how it affected their children.

In the 2nd chapter of Luke's gospel we find the familiar passage recounting the birth of Jesus and the angelic announcement of “good news of great joy” to the shepherds keeping watch over their flocks by night.As remarkable as this passage is its familiarity can cause us to look without seeing and hear without listening. When we come to familiar passages in our Bibles we have a tendency to read quickly over them, assuming that we have gained as much as we can from them already. And so my hope is that we will approach these verses – as much as possible – with a fresh perspective, eager to take in all of the wonder and amazement that we ought to have as we reflect on the truth that God took on flesh and dwelt among us. Let us behold the wondrous mystery that the 2nd person of the Trinity would condescend to be made in the likeness of sinful flesh and enter the world in such humble fashion. That while we were still enemies with God He came to seek and to save that which was lost.May we never lose sight that He is Savior. He is the Christ. He is the Lord.And as we keep these remarkable truths before us, we will be unable to do anything other than gaze upon our Savior in wonder; to eagerly share the good news of great joy with others; and to praise, glorify, and worship Christ our King. Listen & See the Show Notes at ReasonableTheology.org/Episode47Thanks for listening!

Musical artist Tasha Layton went from contemplating suicide to recording the number one song in the country. But her journey from being on the brink to discovering a calling of purpose and passion wasn't as easy as "1-2-3." Here to encourage us in the long but fruitful path to spiritual and mental wholeness, especially when maneuvering life's hardships during the holidays, Tasha gives us insight into her own courage to move forward in life –– and inspiration for those of us who are also struggling this Christmas. This week's featured songs are: "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" from our own Andrew Greer, and "O Holy Night" from Tasha Layton's new Christmas EP, This Is Christmas, which you can listen to here.
