Message from the Morning Devotions
This month we had our high schoolers Cole, Jake, and Owen give us a week of our devotions. They taught us 3 main lessons about the life of Christ. The first lesson we learned was from Jake who spoke on the birth of Christ. Jake reminded us that we must always make sure that we are making room for Christ in our house and that we are not too proud or comfortable in our flesh to give it up to him. As well as that if there is no room in our house for Christ we need to make sure we filter out all the impurities in order to make room for him and just overall improve our life in the truth. We then heard from Cole- now Cole taught us about the baptism of Christ. He taught us about how being baptized isn’t something we do ONLY to clear our sins- we get baptized because it is God’s will and we are told to. He used Christ as an example for this because even though Christ never sinned- he still got baptized and did what God told him to do. Then finally, we heard from Owen who did an object lesson for us about how important God and the ecclesia are to helping us overcome the sins in our lives and keep the word of God with us and in our minds.
