CFS Chapel 2/11/11

I have this ongoing love/hate relationship with Facebook.  One thing they're doing right, though, is their "On This Day" app.  I love to look back at all of my old posts for a specific day over the past seven or so years.  I like reminiscing. I enjoy the reminders of funny things the kids say, great days, and even some sadder moments.  Recently, I stumbled across an old outline for a Friday School chapel I wrote five years ago.  It's about preparedness and submitting to God.  I thought I'd share that here.

This is the outline for CFS Chapel 2/11/11

What is this?

A bug-out or go bag is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy two hours when evacuating from a disaster.

What is the importance of having a go bag?

What is in a go bag?

What is the benefit of having a flashlight?

Some responses – see into the darkness, light the path ahead.

Verse – In John 12:46, Jesus said, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness."

What is the benefit of having a change of clothing?

Some responses – warmth, modesty, cleanliness, comfort.

Verse – Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

What is the benefit of having food?

Some responses – energy and strength.

Verse – Psalm 136:25 He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever.

What is the benefit of having water?

Some responses – hydrates, quenches thirst.

Verse – John 4:14 ...but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

What is the benefit of having a radio?

Some responses – news, communication.

Verse – Luke 2:9-12 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Bible – the ultimate go book.
Who was one of the most prepared people in the Bible? The biggest go bag ever had to have been Noah's ark. Noah built an ark according to God's specifications and loaded it with food for all of the animals and for his family.
The memory verse is Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
The point of all of this is that you never know when God is going to ask something of you or what it will be, how outrageous it will be. But be prepared to submit and GO!
