Telling the Truth

Yesterday, Jonathon had a school project where he had to do a commercial for a section of the library. His section was Religion. He was so excited and immediately knew what he wanted to do- share about Jesus! We worked on it little by little for a week and yesterday was the big day. He got up and talked using a microphone and speaker ( I know some of you are laughing because no child of mine would need a microphone to be heard :) and told his class about the Bible. He told them that it is God's word and it is TRUE! Can I get an Amen? He also told them that it was about the life of Jesus and it told us how to be Christians. He then proceeded to read them verses about being a Christian. He started with John 3:16 (For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him would not perish, but have eternal life.) Then he read John 14:6 (Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me."). His last verse was Romans 10:9 (If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved). He ended by asking if anyone had any questions and letting them know that they could talk to him anytime. I am so proud of his boldness for Jesus! It takes a lot of courage to present the Truth to your friends. He was a little discouraged that no one asked questions, but I told him to be ready, the questions may come weeks down the road. For him one of the coolest parts of the whole experience was all of the people that prayed for him. God is so good and it blows me away that He wants to let us be a part of something so big!! Jonathon taught me a big lesson about listening and obeying the Holy Spirit. We not only need to hear that little voice but we need to do what it is telling us.



way to turn an academic assignment into a platform to share the gospel! GO JONATHAN!!!


way to go! he's braver than me.
