GETTING EXCITED ABOUT THE LORD
Getting Excited about the Lord
by Keith Bellamy
What would it take to get you excited about the Lord? This is an important question.
We have so very many in our church family and elsewhere who are suffering with illness, bad news, and whatever else comes their way. Some have lost loved ones, and some have had broken relationships.
I was amazed the other day when Diane was singing along with some children’s songs that she once taught our girls and the young children in our church family. Her comment was that she wanted our older kids to teach the songs to our younger kids. Diane was excited about the Lord.
So, my lesson from her was one of excitement for the Lord. He has been so good to her and our family.
And God has been so very good to you, too. This ought to cause excitement. If you read some of the Psalms, you can detect the excitement the writer has for the Lord.
I think about Mark 11:7-10 when they were singing “Hosanna!” as He was riding the colt into Jerusalem. The people were excited. They were excited because Jesus was there. People are fickle, though. Many of these same people would be shouting, “Crucify Him,“ just a few days later.
We can get excited about the Lord though, knowing God is on our side. He has promised to be with us always (Matthew 28:20).
We can get excited about the opportunities we have to reach out to others who are hurting…to others who are lost, confused, or mixed up.
I hope you will look at the material from World Video Bible School and use it. Look up video.wvbs.org
There are many who don’t know where to turn. You can help guide them with these tools, and hopefully they will respond to the Good News of Jesus.
