Do We Have a Tough Faith?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her owns.

Judges 4:4-16/Matthew 18:20
Do We Have a Tough Faith?

Having tough faith will get far in life because your faith in yourself and God will get you many blessings. If you have tough faith you know exactly who you are, and you will not let anyone hold you back.
With tough faith you will know who you are. Without tough faith you start questioning things you haven’t thought of before, and you start to double guess yourself. You let situation that come your way bring you down instead of learning from them. When you have tough faith, you let your situations help you and you learn lessons from them that will you throughout your life. You never question yourself because you know who you are, and you have lots if faith in God so you stay strong.
Your tough faith will give you a tough attitude. The tough faith you have give you just enough blessings where you don’t have to worry about a thing. God will fight all of your battles because he has all power and he will for sure win the war. 
God puts you through tough situations to make you tougher, and to test how much faith you really have in him. You don’t let any situation bring the because all they do is lift you up closer to God, and your faith will get stronger and stronger.
Tough situations make tough people and tough people make tough faith. Your tough faith will help you with those things that bring you down, and will help you find who you are and what your purpose is.

Trust God

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her owns.

Joel 2:9-10
Trust God.

God has done everything for us, and he has done nothing except help us. God has never broken any of his promises, so he is the most trustworthy person we know. He also helped us through a lot when others couldn’t.
God has never in all his life broke a promise, so he is the most trustworthy person in the whole universe. When God promised Noah to never destroy the earth by water again, he kept that promise for years-he may have caused a couple floods-but that didn’t destroy the world. If a friend ever promised you something but broke his promise, they wouldn’t be as trustworthy, but I if God promises you something he will give it to you even if it takes a long time. We sometimes have even broke promises to God ourselves, so he seems to be more trustworthy then ourselves. God is the person we should trust the most.
God has helped us through lots of our problems. God has given us so much such as a house, food, drinks, and clothing.
He doesn’t just give us our simple needs; he gives us things we want such as a phone, a car, etc. He doesn’t have to do anything for us, but he loves us so much that he willing does all these things for us. God can get us through things that no other person could have.
If there is no one left, God is the person you can turn to always. God can get us through tough times and is a very trustworthy person.

Are we suffering from the side effects of our post resurrection power?

Luke 24:36-41
Are we suffering from the side effects of our post resurrection power?

Jesus has been warning his disciples that it was his time, and when it actually happened they did believe he was going to come back. That one day when those two women, Mary and Mary Magdalene, came to visit his tomb he was no longer there. There was only an angel, and the angel told them to go tell the disciples to meet Jesus in Galilee.

Jesus has died on the cross for our sins and he was buried in a tomb. Two days later, two women came to visit his body but He was not there. The large, heavy bolder had been pushed backed and his clothes folded. There was an angel in front of them and that angel asked, “why are you seeking the living among the dead, he has risen,” then the angel had told the women to go and tell the disciples to meet Jesus at Galilee. The two women were surprised but they did as told.

The 11 disciples were in hiding, for they were scared of being killed, but once Mary Magdalene and Mary came to tell the good news most of the disciples we overjoyed and rushed to see him. Once they had got there, there were still a lot of people who were doubting his presence some were scared, other overjoyed, some just in awe. The main person who didn’t believe it was Jesus at all was doubting Thomas. Jesus had all the signs that it was him; same personality, same body, same everything, the only thing different was that he had holes in his feet and hands which are the scars from when he was on the cross. He was only going to be on earth for a little while longer so he had to give his final directions to his disciples.
Jesus did die and come back to life and he did it all for us.

Have You Seen The Devil Lately?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

1 Peter 5:8-9
Have You Seen The Devil Lately?

Now that shouldn’t be a question. The devil is anywhere, at anytime, where he can temp you to go against God; the devil is everywhere so you need to keep your guard up.
The devil is everywhere at anytime. The devil want you to join his party, and he tries to trick you into leaving Gods party so you can join his. If you fall for his tricks, you slowy backwards from heaven into the pits of hell. One thing you do know is how fast you can jump back to heaven, and that way is through Jesus. You just have to do one simply thing and it’s not hard; you need to ask for forgiveness. When you do ask for forgiveness, you need to genuinely mean it, and God will quickly forgive you as if it never happened.
You need to keep your guard up for the devil. The devil is always on the lookout for people to join his side, but what you need to do is resist him. You don’t ever really have to fight the devil, you just need to resist him, “how do you do that?” To resist the devil you need to know the who, how, and what. You need to know who the devil is, what he does, and what his tactics are. By knowing his tactics, you know how he tricks you, he acts like he all good and he makes bad things sound good. All the devil’s job is, is to get you to join his army and take down God army. The devil wants us all to fall, but we know just how to get up if we follow Jesus through ever step if your life.
The devil thinks we are gullible, but we are NOT gullible. We are children of God and we can’t forget that because he is the only one to guide us through the right path. The devil is everywhere so we need to keep our guard up. We have the power to make the devil run away.

Are We Doing What Counts

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Galatians 5:6
Are We Doing What Counts?

Have you ever thought about that question, “are we doing what counts?” Are you doing things with good intentions, and how do we do what counts?
If you aren’t doing things with good intentions it’s probably not good. We are here to do good things so it counts with us when we go to heaven. If it is not a good deed it counts against you, and you will have a higher chance of going to hell. When you do good deeds, you can’t brag on how what you did, for that is just annoying and gives away the whole point of the good deed. When you do things with good intentions you need to make sure it is with good intentions.
When you do things with good intentions, how do you know? If you’re able to have a phone and read this perspective, then you should know your rights and wrongs. If you’re not sure, if it right or wrong, just don’t do it because bad intentions means it is probably a bad deed. Also if you don’t know and not do it, you don’t have to deal with thinking about it all the time. You should know the basics of right and wrong, and if you don’t know don’t do it.
Are you doing things that count with you or against you. If you want to go to heaven, then while you are here you need to do good deeds. You must do things with good intentions, and also know if it is good or not.

There Is Only One Way Home

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Acts 4:8-12
There Is Only One Way Home.

Now I am not talking about how you get to your house here on Earth, there’s probably many different ways, I’m talking about when you die and you have to get to your heavenly home. The only way to get into heaven anyway is through Jesus Christ.
We are only here for a temporary amount of time. Our physical home here,on Earth, is where we will stay until Jesus comes and takes us to our heavenly home. We are just here to spread the word of God and prove that we are worthy of entering the gates of heaven. While we are here, we have to make the right choices, right actions, and when we do mess up we ask for forgiveness so our sins don’t count against us. We want to go to heaven and there is only one way there.
We only have one way to get to heaven, and that one way is throughout Jesus. Jesus will always be the only way to get to God. We cannot buy, sneak, or sell our way into heaven because up there we have no use for money.
Jesus is the only path to righteousness and perfection, and the only reason we are here is so we learn to be more like him. Jesus is a extremely important part for us getting into heaven.
There is only one way to our heavenly home. Our only way there is through Jesus Christ, so we need to learn the ways of Jesus while we are here.

What Do You Do When You Hit Rock Bottom?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Genius 37:23-24
What Do You Do When You Hit Rock Bottom?

Have you ever hit rock bottom? If you have, how did you get there? Was it because of your own actions or someone else’s? Hitting rock bottom is the worst place to be on Earth, and most of the time people have no idea how to get up. Were you the cause of your own suffering because you weren’t careful with what you were doing? It could have been someone else you listened to, and you thought it was a good idea so you listened.
Were you the cause of your suffering? You could have been in the best place in your life. You has a nice house, a stable job, and possibly a good personal relationship. Then one day you decide to…let’s say… you killed someone you really disliked, soon you were caught by the police, you are sentenced 40 years in jail. You loose your girlfriend/boyfriend because she/he was scared of you, then you loose your house because you weren’t able to pay any if the bills, you lost your job because you weren’t a good
For the company, and once you get out of jail you are at rock bottom, you have nowhere to live, no job to work, and no one to depend on…well you have one person, GOD, God promised that he will NEVER leave you, nor forget you, and he NEVER breaks his promises. When you believe in the Lord you can find your way up from rock bottom.
Now what if it wasn’t your fault you hit rock bottom, it was someone else. Same scenario, you have a job, house, relationship all that good stuff. You disliked a person and you tell your “best friend,” he/she says,” you should secretly try to kill if you dislike that person that much,” you think this is a good idea, so you try to go with it. Boy you’ve gone messed up AGAIN! You go to jail again, loose your girlfriend/boyfriend, loose your house,loose your job, some more of that good good stuff. You back down to rock bottom, but you still have that ONE person to talk to,God, and he will always be there for you, so whenever you wake up from that cold street, pray to God that you can make it back up, and who knows you can become the poorest man in the world to the richest man on Earth, you just don’t know what God will do.
When we are at rock bottom there is always a way to the top, even if it was or wasn’t your fault there is a way to the top. Therefore when we are trapped in the dark, trust in God to see the light.

How do we handle our scars?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Genesis 21:14-20
How do we handle our scars?

We are not talking about how you fall off your bike and get a booboo on your knee, and then after time you get a scar. How do you handle your metaphorical scars. If you still don’t understand how do you handle your history.
It is black history month and us, black people, have a lot of history. We did not start off as slaves, there was a time before all of that. We were in Africa living our regular life, but all of a sudden the white men came and took basically all of us against our will, and made us slaves. We had no choice but to become a slave or die. We slaves might have been weak and helpless, but we had God to go to.
We never gave up and we weren’t going to. We had many black role models Martin Luther King Jr, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, etc. Martin Luther King helped us gain basic human rights, Harriet Tubman helped over 300 slaves get out of slavery, and Rosa Parks stood up for herself and many others. They are just some of the people who lead us to freedom and rights. We need to stand up for ourselves and our people.
We are black people. Doesn’t matter if you light skin really dark skin you have a black heritage in you. We are proud for all of our history. Our black lives matter

Are We Happy In The Lord

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Ecclesiastes 3:12
Are We Happy In The Lord?

Are you happy with what the Lord does for you? You should be because he does so much. It not a sin to be happy, so you should ever be sad. We won’t be alive forever so why waste it on being sad because you won’t have feelings when your dead.
It is not a sin to be happy (that’s crazy). We all deserve to be happy at any time, especially if you are a Christian. We, as Christans have no reason to not be happy. God woke us up this morning, he gave us money to get food, we traveled safely throughout the day, we got home safely, and we got to go to sleep without any disturbance. If you know someone who is always sad, won’t ever smile, that is just depressed, well they don’t have to be like that. You can try to cheer them up, that person is possibly just lonely, and just needs a friend. You are a person who can give that person a friend, and not only will it make them happy, but it will makes you happy. Try helping out someone then ask yourself ,” am I happy.”
Everyone reading this is alive I think. We all are not going to be alive forever, so we shouldn’t waste it on the bad things in life. Stealing, killing, drugs are all a waste of time because the all lead you to the same place…jail, which is a waste of time because if you didn’t do all that stuff you could spend your time being happy. When you do everything you are spupposed to do in the end you be even more happy then ever before. Let’s all be happy and thankful.
We need to be happy in the Lord for he does everything for us and we have to repay him. If you waste your life being sad you won’t live your life to the fullest, and that is not a life you want to have lived.Are

Are We Experiencing God At The Level Of Servanthood?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Luke 10:1-3, 17
Are We Experiencing God At The Level Of Servanthood?

Are we expecting
In our church we have leaders and the congregation, the leader are supposed to set and example for the congregation as Jesus did for the world. We are not Jesus so we can’t do it like him but we have to try, which is all we can do.
If you can’t do it right don’t do it at all. If you don’t know how to do something, and you can’t learn it, don’t give up, but try something different because we can’t do everything. We want to do the things we like but if you don’t give and effort you can’t do it, we need to try if you want to be able to do it right. Jesus always gave effort in everything he did, he wasn’t lazy, he wasn’t tired, he was always on the go to spread the word of God. We need to give the effort.
We are here to spread the word of God, but most of us don’t even do that we do the complete opposite. When we don’t do what we are meant for it will effect us in the end. Since we were made in God’s image we have to act the part, or be as perfect as possible.
We don’t want to follow the devil for the WORST path to take, it might be a smooth ride but you are cheating and you will see you and your problems face to face. Let’s take the right path even though there are way more bumps, you can still get through with the help of God.
We need to try as much as we can, but when you don’t you won’t accomplish your goals. Lets take the right path as a leader not a follower.
