Here is a quick view as we wrap up the last of the curriculum, a 7 week series on 1 & 2 Samuel.

Last Thursday I was writing a bunch of lessons for the new school year at Panera Bread and enjoying the wisdom from God’s Word. I came to a place in the series that was going to be on the topic Priorities for teenagers. Now, I am not sure if it was the four hours of sleep or the three cups of coffee going through my veins, but as I began to transcribe the lesson, I felt God speaking directly to my own heart.

How many times do we allow God to impact our lives? When is the last time you truly experienced God? Maybe it was His people or wisdom. As Christians, we should be filled so much that we naturally are sharing Jesus with those we see because of the overflow of His love and favor for us.

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 17ff-19

We are ministers of God’s Word to others, but first and foremost we are His children. May we hold tightly to His love, open our hearts to Him, and be filled to the top.
