Something To Say Archives
The Questions Jesus Asked series is panning out to be meaningful for many of our members, especially for one of our youngest, nine-year-old Jaden Scott.
After Youth Min. Rashaan Smith of Bible Way Christian Center in Hyde Park delivered a sermon entitled "Look Out What God Can Do" from John 13:12 where Jesus asks, "Do you understand what I have done to you?" after washing the disciples' feet, Jaden took notes, as he typically does during the message.
His notes reflected deep insight and understanding of the powerful message that went forth. He wrote: "Sometimes you have to make the first move so you can put yourself in position so God can help you get through your problems. Sometimes make the first move." Jaden, who loves social studies and wants to be an archaeologist when he grows up so "he can travel the world and learn facts about the past," then shared the following when interviewed:
Q: What do you like about church?
A: I like that you can give yourself and stuff to God, pray and it will come to pass.
Q: When in service do you always take notes?
A: Yes because basically if I like what the preacher is saying I write it down!
Q: If there was someone in church, family, a classmate or friend who was having a problem what would you tell them to do?
A: Trust in God.
Q: What if they're like, "Jaden, that's so hard I don't know how to do that!" Then what would you say?
A: I would say go to church and learn how. I would also say pray and sometimes they can visit my church.
Q: Is it important for us to pray? Why/whynot?
A: Yes because when we pray we're giving glory to God.
Q: Why do you love God? And if someone didn't know anything about God or who He is, what would you tell them?
A: I love God because whenever you're in a tough time or can't bear anymore He's there. I would tell them that He's a great God and He's there for us through everything.
Way to go Jaden! Let's continue to encourage, empower and equip our youth to follow their natural bent and spiritual gifts so they can grow to be young men and women in love with God and on fire for Him!
