Fellowship session notes by: HOREMOW NA Kids member - Dara D.
Teacher: Pastor Cliff McAnthony
Challenge: To memorize Matthew 5:7-8 - assigned on 05/11/2019. On 05/18/2019, during the Kids Fellowship, Pastor Cliff tested the children on the genuine effort of practicing this memory verse over the week and to give their testimonies.
Session summary by HOREMOW Kids Member: Dara D. "Matthew 5:7,8 - Those who can show mercy towards others can obtain mercy from God. Those who are pure in the heart (which means no sin at all in your heart) can see the Lord of Heaven. Therefore we must live a complete life of Holiness because without holiness; no man shall see the Lord (Hebrews.12:14). You must show mercy to be shown mercy; which is the core of the GOLDEN RULE."
Session summary reflection: If you do not show mercy, you will not obtain mercy. When you fail to show mercy then your heart is filled with unforgiveness defiling the heart. If your heart is not pure then you cannot see God. Our connection with God cannot be achieved by mishandling our connection with those around us. If you cannot love the one you can see how then can you love the One (God) you cannot see?
Testimony: Few children gave their testimony that they were able to practice this verse at home with their younger siblings.Although this may seem like a small matter and siblings may feel they have the right to mistreat their family members simply because of relations but this is far from the truth. If children cannot learn to forbear with family members how then can they do the same for their enemies as the Bible commands us to do?
Challenge: Pastor Cliff encouraged the children to continue putting the past memory verses into practice as well as not to forget that the challenge to achieve 100% obedience to your parents still stands for the rest of May. Once 100% obedience is achieved parents are to help children maintain that standard. Pastor Cliff has assigned this week's memory verse: Matthew 5:9 and looks forward to hearing all the testimonies of the outcome of putting this new verse into practice. Not by strength nor by might but by the help of the Holy Spirit and by asking for knowledge and wisdom from God 100% obedience and application of the memory verses is possible.
Memory verse assignment between 05/18/2019 and 05/25/2019:
Matthew 5:9 King James Version (KJV)
"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
