Good memories flooded my mind as I sat in a concert. The group’s leader had just introduced the song they were about to sing: “Just As I Am.” I remembered how years ago at the end of his sermons my pastor would ask people to come forward while we sang that song, indicating they would like to receive the forgiveness Christ offers for their sins.Posted: July 31, 2014, 1:00 am

2 Samuel 11:1-5
There was none more mighty than David. As a lad he had faithfully protected his family's sheep from both the lion and the bear, then astounded the nation of Israel when he felled the giant Goliath. He proved himself a valiant warrior, and with David as command-in-chief there was no army more feared that Israel's. He was a national symbol for truth, righteousness, justice, and compassion. He was a musician, songwriter, and visionary. That was the mighty David, the anointed one, a man after God's own heart.

- CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS
Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmAs Amy's father drove her and her friend Sara to a youth banquet at church, the two girls chattered happily in the back seat of the car. It was a dress-up event, and both girls had new outfits for the occasion. "I'm so glad you could come with me tonight," Amy told Sara. "You look so nice."
"Thanks--and thanks for inviting me," replied Sara. "I don't see the inside of a church very often, you know. How come you go all the time?"
"Well," said Amy, "I go to worship God and to learn more about Him." She paused, then added, "I'm a Christian--I've asked Jesus to save me, and I love Him and want to learn how to live in a way that pleases Him."
"What do you mean--you asked Him to save you? Save you from what?" asked Sara as Amy's dad drove into the church parking lot and stopped.
"From sin. We're all sinners," Amy explained, getting out of the car, "but Jesus took the punishment for our sins." Their conversation was interrupted as other kids arrived, so they waved good-bye to Dad and turned to go up the church steps.
Amy glanced down at her feet. She froze in place. "Sara," she gasped, "I forgot my shoes! I've got my old bedroom slippers on! Why didn't you tell me?"
"I never noticed," replied Sara. She laughed as she looked at Amy's bare toes sticking out of childlike animal slippers. "They do look pretty funny with that outfit."
"I'm not going in there like this!" declared Amy. She introduced Sara to a friend. Then she made a quick phone call to her mother and waited at the church door for Dad to bring her good shoes.
"I thought you were wearing just the right shoes," Dad said when he arrived.
Amy held up the slippers. "You like these silly things?" she asked.
Dad laughed. "Oh, I didn't notice those," he said, "but I did notice that you were ready with an answer when Sara questioned you about your salvation. The Bible calls that having your feet 'shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.' That's so much more important than wearing dressy shoes with your new outfit."
Dad gave Amy a hug. "Have fun tonight," he said. "We'll be praying for you and for Sara."
"Thanks, Dad," said Amy. "And thanks for bringing my shoes, too."
How About You?
Are you ready at any time to tell others about Jesus --to be a witness for Him? The Key Verse has a phrase that isn't really used these days. You'd probably say, "Be ready to share that you can have peace with God." That may mean talking to someone about Him. It may mean explaining what you believe or why you do--or don't do--certain things. Live in a way that others can tell you belong to Jesus and have His peace in your heart. Let them know they can have it, too.
Today's Key Verse:
Stand therefore . . . having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. (Ephesians 6:14-15)
Today's Key Thought:
Be ready to witness

Grandpa tells the kids a story from his childhood to explain why Johnny is such an unhappy old lizard.
Do Christians dress differently than non-Christians? Time for a Bible quiz on clothes!
Question 1: Who was famous for wearing clothes made out of camel's hair? (Mark 1:6)
Question 2: After she died, people gathered together to show Peter all the robes and clothing she had made and given away to poor people around her. (Acts 10: 39)
Question 3: Whose father loved him so much that he bought a richly decorated robe just for him? (Genesis 37: 3)
Question 4: Who told a story about a wedding banquet at which a man who wasn't wearing wedding clothes was tied up and thrown outside the banquet into the darkness? (Matt. 22: 1-14)
How did you do? John the Baptist was famous not only for his camel-hair clothes, but also for preparing the way for Jesus. Dorcas (or Tabitha) was famous for her sewing and acts of kindness-so famous that people made Peter come to her town when she died. Not only did Peter come, he raised her from the dead. Jacob loved his son Joseph so much, he bought the fancy coat so that everyone would know who Joseph was. Jesus told the story about the wedding banquet to teach the people about the kingdom of God.
So what do clothes have to do with being a Christian? A lot! Colossians 3:12 says because we are "God's chosen people," this means that we are "holy and dearly loved." So how do we react to being chosen and loved by God? We want to look and act like God. We want to reflect God to others. How? By "clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." By our "clothes," others will see God!
There is usually a reason that a person is unhappy and mean. There is something in their past, or their present that is making them unhappy, and they take it out on the people around them. That's what happened with Johnny. He lost his pet bird and it made him an angry boy and a bitter man. He was angry with God and this caused him to be angry and impatient with other people too.
Our natural first response when bad things happen is often bitterness and anger. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can train ourselves in the Spirit so that our first response is trust in God's goodness, which enables God's character to shine through us. Then the clothes of God-the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience-will fit us nicely.
In Jesus we are dearly loved by God. That knowledge needs to penetrate us to our very bones. When it does, we are able to show others the love of God and it will be so attractive that they cannot help but be drawn to Jesus. Liz and his friends bought a new songbird for Johnny as a gesture of love. Hopefully, this loving act will result in giving Johnny a new song in his heart, the song of a child dearly loved by his Father in Heaven.
