I was trying to teach my 6th grade religious education class tonight about how the divide between us and God, because of original sin, is impossible to bridge. I came up with the idea to have the kids try to kiss their elbows. It's impossible, right? That is how it is with us and God and that's why God sent Jesus (his own son) to bridge that gap so that we will no longer die, because of our sin and the sin of the world, but live! It was pretty funny to see the kids trying to kiss their elbows. :) It was fun and made a great point.
WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE.
IT IS A GIFT THAT WE CAN EITHER ACCEPT OR REJECT.
AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE
WE SHALL SERVE THE LORD (JOSHUA 24:15).
