Eunice McGarrahan gave an inspiring talk on Christian discipleship in which she said, “A costume is something you put on and pretend that you are what you are wearing. A uniform, on the other hand, reminds you that you are, in fact, what you wear.”Posted: December 12, 2013, 5:00 am

Romans 8:31-37; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 1 John 5:4, 7
Victory in Jesus Christ. It's what many Christians want. It's what we've been promised by Christ Himself. But we often find ourselves asking, “Why don't I experience more victory in Christ?”
Isn't it interesting that in passages on Christian victory, the Bible doesn't mention one time the blare of a bugle or the stomping of an infantry or the clanking armour of a soldier or the bursting sounds of battle on the landscapes around us? The victorious life finds its source in Christ Himself and in our quiet submission to the empowering work the Holy Spirit.

The Story Teller
Sat 3pm. and Sun 12pm.Ryan grew up with sports, but he was especially good at Hockey... so good in fact that he was eventually drafted by a professional hockey team. He wasn't content though - something was missing. It wasn't until he chose to follow Jesus that he found what he was looking for.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmPaul knelt in the soft dirt, breaking up big chunks with his gloved hands. "Grandpa," he said as he looked toward the side of the garden where his grandfather was putting out seed packets, "my Sunday school teacher says God is a Trinity--that there's God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, but at the same time they're all just one God."
His sister Grace frowned. "How can God be three different people and still be only one?" she asked.
"That is hard to understand," agreed Grandpa, picking up a package of radish seeds, "but it's certainly taught in the Bible." He handed the package to Grace. "Want to plant these for me?"
"Sure," agreed Grace. She looked up at the sky as she opened the package. "It's so dark today. I wish the sun would come out," she said as she began to sprinkle the tiny seeds in the shallow ditch her brother had drawn.
"Can you explain the Trinity, Grandpa?" Paul asked, returning to the subject that was bothering him.
Grandpa smiled. "Well, Grace just mentioned the sun. It's a pretty good illustration of the Trinity."
"The sun up in the sky?" Grace asked.
"Right." Grandpa nodded. "First of all, it illustrates God the Father. Tell me . . . has anyone ever seen the sun?"
"Sure," replied Paul. "We see it almost every day."
"Actually, we don't," replied Grandpa. "We see the light from the sun. No one can look right at the sun itself. Doing so would seriously damage our eyes."
"I guess that's true," agreed Paul, "but . . . how is that like God the Father?"
"The Bible says no one has seen God the Father," explained Grandpa. "He is so great and glorious that human beings cannot look at Him. Although we can't see Him, we know about Him through the Bible and through nature."
As Grace continued to sprinkle radish seeds in the dirt, both children thought about Grandpa's explanation. "Okay," said Paul, "so the sun is an illustration of God the Father. But what about the other two parts of the Trinity?"
"I'll get to those in a minute," replied Grandpa. "First, let's water the area we've planted."
How About You?
Do you have trouble believing in God because you can't see Him? You can't actually see the sun, either, but you certainly don't doubt the evidence proving that it exists. There's much evidence proving that God exists, too--evidence in nature (see Psalm 19), in the testimony and teaching of Jesus (John 1:18) and in lives changed by the power of God. Even though you can't understand everything about God, you can believe what the Bible teaches about Him.
Today's Key Verse:
No one has seen God at any time.
Today's Key Thought:
You can't see God the Father
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
The school play is coming up and Liz is sure that he will not only have the lead role, but also be asked to direct. That doesn't happen, but Miss Wattle does give him the role of Old Ben which Liz still uses to be a "star" with sunglasses, a chinchilla beret, silk scarf, and bodyguard. This causes Chamy and Miss Wattle to "fire" Liz and replace him with Morrie. Liz finally realizes that he once again has fallen to pride.
Have you ever heard of King Joash? King Uzziah? King Hezekiah? What do these kings have in common?
They were all kings of Judah before Jesus was born. They all had unusual names. They all began their kingships in the same way: by doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord. What a great way to begin an important job!
- Joash was only seven years old when he became king. The temple of God had been vandalized and neglected, so King Joash collected money and restored the temple.
- King Uzziah was 16 when he became king. He asked the priest what God wanted him to do and then went out and did it.
- King Hezekiah repaired the temple. He led his nation in bringing sacrifices to the temple, celebrating Passover again, and worshiping God.
These three kings did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. How cool! They had one more thing in common. They all got the same disease: PRIDE!
After the priest who had guided him died, King Joash turned his back on God. He worshipped idols and killed anyone who reminded him to worship only God. King Uzziah got so proud, he thought he could go into the temple and burn incense (this was only for the priests to do). He got very angry when the priests told him he couldn't do that. God punished him with leprosy for the rest of his life. Hezekiah got very proud and thought he didn't need God. The Bible says "God's anger came upon him and Judah. Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem." (2 Chronicles 32: 25-26)
Pride is sneaky. It creeps up on you and makes you think you don't need God. It gives you the feeling that you can handle things without God-better than God. God hates the sin of pride because it turns our hearts away from him and from loving others. Be on the watch for pride. If you do come down with it, the best thing to do is give it right to God.
What does it mean to be proud? Is it feeling good about a job well done? Is it self-respect? Or self-esteem? I once received a congratulations card from a friend saying that she was "proud" of me, and in parentheses she wrote "the good kind." What she wrote highlighted what we know about pride-there is a good kind and a bad kind.
Self-esteem or self-respect gone awry can become the bad kind of pride. But it seems that the pride that the Bible warns us about can be subtler than this. It is an almost sub-conscious sense of entitlement that says, "Because I am who I am, or I have what I have, I am better than you and I deserve more than you."
Because this is so subtle, parents need take care that they are not creating an environment where their children will absorb attitudes toward themselves and others that are really pride in disguise. This can't be done without prayer and the help of the Holy Spirit. Pray that God will give you a teachable spirit that is open to recognize, confess, and repent under the guidance of the Spirit so that the only pride that exists in your home is rooted in the cross of Christ (Galatians 6:14).
