Texts From God
|Remix Open Gym 2008|
Our Remix youth got together last night for activities in the gym. As usual, several of our kids brought friends. After playing some fun variations of kick ball and dodge ball (Thanks Tim!), we settled down for devos and pizza.
Darcy talked about how sometimes we only read our Bibles because its homework that is assigned for confirmation or because that’s what we’re supposed to do. She used a great illustration, having her hubby text message her during the devo and stopping the devo to check the message. Her point? We’re so eager to check our text messages because it might something important that we don’t want to miss. A great devo and very relevant to the kids! But the most exciting part of the evening? I got to give 2 friends of Bri’s Bibles and 1-Minute Student Devotional Bibles. They had seen the Bible before, but didn’t have their own. I was glad Bri brought them and we were able to bless them with these wonderful treasures!
We don’t always see it that way, but God’s Word is even more important and relevant for us today. Why aren’t we running to check God’s Word all the time? It is, after all, God’s love letter to us.
I looked online for ways to receive the Bible via text message. Two possibilities:
Both cost money, unfortunately, but it might be worth investing in it. If you have one you use, I’d love to hear it in the comments.
