I love to dance. I take dance classes. One of my favorite things to do is to dance. I also love God. So how do I combine the two? Well, many would instantly say “You worship”, but worship is more about focusing on God, not the moves you do.
The bible tells us a way to give glory to God through dance. You praise him with it. Show God you love him through dance.
Okay, since Valentine’s day is on Tuesday, I am going to do my love post today and not next week.
The love verse I’m doing this year is Romans 5:8; “But God shows love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”.The verse in the picture is not the actual verse but it still provides the point I’m going to make. God loves us, no matter what. He loves us at our darkest moments. He loved you when you didn’t believe. Yes, he was sad that you didn’t believe at the time, but he still loved you.
P.S. Hey guys, please comment what your favorite post has been, what kind of post you like, and that if you have any ideas for future posts let me know! 😄
In the movie Trolls, the Trolls are a very happy people, and I mean VERY happy. All except Branch, who doesn’t let his true colors show. Anyway, in the movie the Burgans want to eat the trolls so they’ll be happy too. When a brugan finds them and takes some of Poppy’s friends she sets out to get them back, saying “If you knock me over, I’ll get back up again”. Eventually Branch joins her, and the two end up getting caught and the others get caught too. The movie ends with them all escaping and parting.
But what does all of this have to do with the bible or God? Well, multiple times in the bible God says to REJOICE in the lord. We should be happy like the trolls. But you won’t always fell like rejoicing in hard times, but like Poppy says “If you knock me over, I’ll get back up again.
Okay, so by now you’ve probably realized that I like action movies and show and I try to incorporate modern things into my lessons.
Now let’s start the lesson, what is brotherly love and why do we need to show it? Brotherly love is regular love for others. It’s not like a romantic love (Kissing and that kind of stuff) but an unselfish love for others, Christian or not. It means we don’t give up on others, but continue to love, care, and respect them.
The Ninja Turtles fit in into this by showing a constant love for each other, and making sure they keep each other safe, just like we’re supposed to do for others. To quote a song about the turtles “They have each others back like a turtle shell”.
Okay so President-elect Trump is going to be sworn in, in a couple of days. Many people talk about how much they don’t like him, and during the election season many people said rude things about the candidates, I didn’t, I prayed for them.
We need to pray for and respect our leaders, unless they make a law against the bible. We need to pray for Obama who’s transmitting back to a “normal” life and for Trump who is getting ready to be President. They’re still people.
Romans 12:2 says “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
But what does Transformers have to do with any of this? Well, for those of you who don’t know what Transformers are, they’re giant robots that can change into cars, planes, trucks, jets, semi’s, and even dinosaurs. The good robots are called Autobots. They fight the evil robots known as the Decepticons.
I think that the Autobot represent us Christians, and Decepticon represent the devil. Like the devil they want everyone to do want they want, and what they want only helps their evil cause. We, as Christians, need to resist this the best we can and renew our minds, or transform into what God wants us to be.
Most people think young people can’t make a difference. Well, they’re wrong. Just because we’re young doesn’t mean we can’t make a difference. I believe we can actually make a bigger difference. I mean, where do you go for 8 hours a day and interact with hundreds of people? SCHOOL. No, in most school you can’t just talk about your faith right out in the open, but you can pray at lunch, start a bible club, and pray for people who ask you to. Same for adults (but at work).
