A Contagious Passion for God’s Word

As I taught the Mary Jones missionary story, Mary’s passion for God’s Word amazed the children in my club. They all wanted to know how they could get a Bible for themselves! I reached into my lesson cart, brought out my Bible and showed them the inscription my aunt had written in the front, wishing me a happy sixteenth birthday.

One of the boys asked, “Have you really known Jesus for that long?”

“Yes,” I responded. “I received Jesus when I was only six.”

He said, “Can you receive Jesus as a child?”

“Yes,” I replied.

Then he asked me right in front of the class, “How do I receive Jesus?” What a perfect opportunity to explain the Gospel to him and the rest of the class! It’s incredible how God can open doors at just the right moment.
