Day 2 of the Vacation Bible School is over. So far, God has blessed us with kids who are pretty well-behaved and attentive, and we have had the privilege of forming friendships with these kids. This is a relief after last year, when we had several rowdy kids, and we were worried that it would carry over into this year. By God's grace, the first two days went smoothly, and we anticipate all that God will do in the next three days.
The first day, the lesson covered the yellow page of the worldless book, about God and his holiness compared to man and his sinfulness. The story was Jesus' raising of Lazarus from the dead, and the craft involved a recreation of Lazarus coming out of the tomb.
The second day, the lesson covered the black page of the wordless book. This lesson emphasized man's sin and separation from God and the punishment for sin. The story was Noah, the ark, and the flood, focusing on how God deals with wickedness.
Tomorrow will be Red, Jesus's blood, Thursday will be White, the new life in Christ, and Friday will be green, growing in Christ.
