Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day:
Jesus chose twelve guys to follow him. Some were fisherman. One was a known thief. But their backgrounds, their social standing, their education, none of that was important. What mattered most about these men is that they answered, “Yes!” And those twelve men, yes even Judas, changed the course of history. When we say, “Yes!” to Jesus, we have no idea what hangs in the balance. But “yes” is the best answer for sure. Because Jesus’ invitation is for everyone. It’s for you and for every child in your classroom. Who can follow Jesus? [Bottom Line] I can follow Jesus.
