A testimony is so much more than an inspiring story shared by a believer. Testimonies are an invitation to join with the storyteller in communion—in intimate connection—with each other and with the God Who made the testimony possible. (1 John 1:1-4) This weekend, more than a dozen VBS volunteers shared what God did in them, for them, and through them because they said “yes” to VBS. Whether you were able to participate or not, this weekend’s services are an invitation to share in the experiences with us “so that our joy may be made complete.”
Hilary Millikan, director of VBS (Vacation Bible School) shares her heart for this year’s VBS called, “Saddle Up”. For the kids that already know God, for the kids that have yet to know God, and the adults who volunteer to make this all possible, God has something amazing for all of us. When you find yourself in a “desert place”, and God tells you that He has a way, do you tell him, “Yes”, “No” or “Yo”? ( a combination of yes and no) .
She invited us to bring whatever we have to the Lord and watch not only what He does with it, but how He returns back to us more than we had to give. If you have an hour or all week to participate in VBS ( June 18-22), God can do something with whatever you bring to Him! Saddle Up!
