I had the Bible lesson on Friday. It was going to be about the Garden of Eden, and I was stressing out. I felt like it was going to be the hardest Bible lesson I could ever teach, and I was terrified of failing, especially since it was going to be the first story told at Moon Bible Club.
Right before I was to tell the story, I ran out for a few minutes and I prayed that whatever happened, the story would turn out for God’s glory. I asked Him to place the words in my mouth and speak through me.
As I told the story, God gave me every word I needed! And I noticed one little girl in the front row who answered all the questions correctly. I figured, from her knowledge, that she was already saved. But when I gave the invitation, she raised her hand. I didn’t think she was really serious.
When she came back for counseling, and I asked her exactly why she had come to talk to me, she said, “Because I want to ask Jesus to come into my heart.” I hardly had to tell her anything about the Gospel, all I did was coach her through John 1:12. She prayed to accept Jesus as her Savior!
It was the first time I have been able to lead a child to Christ! It was so exciting to see Him draw her, and to realize that it wasn’t anything I did. It was all Jesus! He took a terrified little intern and spoke through her! And it was all for His glory. -Julia D.
