Gospel Project-First step to remain faithful
When I began to serve Promiseland, I did not know what to expect but I knew I had fun with kindergarten students. However over the last two years, Promiseland, a ministry where I just expected to play with children has turned into a ministry that has truly given me countless blessings.
First and foremost, these blessings starts with the children that I am teaching and meeting while serving. They are a constant reminder of how arrogant and desensitized I have become in my faith over the years. Just looking at how enthusiastic and how pure the children’s faith is makes me look back at my own faith and makes me humble once more. These children are literally trusting God with a childlike heart and seeing this in action every Sunday makes me aspire to do the same in this world that so easily taints the heart.
Serving also has convicted me to be more responsible for my own faith and stay diligent in being a child of God. Thankfully, I am surrounded by such a great community of teachers across all ages that allow me to see how to become a faithful Christian in a family setting. All the other teachers, who I have had the blessing to serve with, provide a constant reminder of how to be a living sacrifice when serving younger generations to make sure that God’s will be spread throughout every life stage.
To ensure the spread of God’s will throughout every life stage, the Gospel Project has been a blessing that allows me to be much more accountable in my readings and able to convey the message to the children properly. Most importantly the conversation does not stop at church, but it is able to continue throughout the home environment. Looking back in my life, my parents were such a big influence of why I stayed in the church during my hard times in college when I was away from home. I could have easily fallen away from the church but due to the foundation that my parents laid out for me, I was always able to look back to God
and nothing else. From this experience, I can already see the true blessing that the Gospel Project will have on all generations, especially the younger generation.
I truly believe that the foundation set at church and at home will allow these children to grow up with the gospel as the light to their path. I am so excited to see how the children I have taught will grow up and this provides an essential first step to remain faithful in a world filled with so much darkness.
