You don’t see Biblical Costumes or religious Halloween Costumes every day. Look no more and have no fear as the saints that we all adore are all here. Therefore, use that to your advantage and make sure that you can have the best Halloween or Christmas Nativity or school event ever! Kids often have trouble with antiquated language, such as all those ‘thees’ and ‘thous’ not used in modern language. Some chapters and, indeed whole books, were so laden with these phrases, that it became difficult to focus your attention and discern what was being said. This factor unfortunately results in kids feeling that this is not a living history and contributes to some kids coming to believe that the Bible is just a series of stories someone made up. This failure to make the Bible come alive is a shame. One way to remedy this is to put on regular seasonal Sunday school plays, making authentic Biblical costumes and stage sets which simulate life in Biblical times. So how do you, as the teacher, find sources of biblical costumes? One easy way is to use Google’s image search feature, searching on a number of criteria. For example, if your play is about the times of King David’s reign, you might search on ‘biblical costumes King David’.
Every one of us has a different thought on what heaven will be like. This is why I enjoyed reading this Bible study lesson in Matthew to hear how Jesus explains the Kingdom of Heaven. He explains it in a way that we can all understand.
Did you know that the word “Heaven” is found in the New Testament 276 times? What is Heaven? Heaven is a place of “no mores.” In Revelation we can read where there will be no more tears, no more pain, and no more sorrow, no more separation.
And, to me the most wonderful thing about heaven is the presence of our Lord and Savior and we will be face to face with the Lamb of God who loved us and sacrificed Himself so that we can enjoy His presence in heaven for eternity.
Here you will find a Bible study lesson about the parable of four soils found in Luke 8. Find out what Jesus means when he says seeds falling here or there if you truly want to know what God expects from each and every one of us.
It is our job as the sower to spread the word, but we must remember that there will be those who hear it but reject it immediately. And, there are those who hear the word but reject it as soon as they have a problem.
Then there are those who hear the word and immediately take it to heart but then they let worldly concerns choke it. The ones who who hear the word and truly understand it bear the fruit.
So, let’s get out there and do our job and God will do the rest.
