6am and 7:15am.

One of the most difficult inner conflicts we have is our desire to be known versus our fear of being known. As beings created in the image of God we are made to be known—known by God and also by others. Yet due to our fallen nature, all of us have sins and weaknesses that we don’t want others to know about. We use the phrase “dark side” to refer to aspects of our lives that we keep hidden. And we use slogans like “put your best foot forward” to encourage others to show their best side.

Genesis 18:22-33

We've all heard it said that we never stand taller than when we kneel before God. But what happens when we offer our prayers and petitions to God? Does He change His mind? Can we alter His plan or reverse His course? If not, then why pray? In this message, we analyze Abraham's passionate intercession on behalf of Lot and his family in the face of the imminent destruction of Sodom. We can understand the struggle that occurs between petition (what we ask for) and desire (why we ask) and gain insight into the important role prayer plays in our lives.

"May I go fishing this afternoon?" Natalie asked, grinning as she climbed into the car after church. "My Bible class teacher said I should."

Dad laughed as he started the car. "You hate fishing, so there's got to be a catch," he said. "Are you going to tell us what it is, or must we guess?"

"Well, our lesson was about being fishers of men," explained Natalie. "I told the class how you use the right kind of bait when you go fishing for bluegills, and we decided we should think about what would be the right bait to use when we fish for people."

"Interesting," murmured Dad, "but do you think anything would be more wonderful to offer than what Jesus offers--eternal life in heaven?"

"No, that's the best thing, of course," said Natalie, "but Mrs. Parsons pointed out that lots of people live so much in the present, as she put it, that they don't really pay attention when we talk to them about heaven. So we decided we should also use some other bait to make people want to listen when we talk about God and being a Christian."

"So what kind of bait are you gonna use for that?" asked Gavin.

"Love," replied Natalie.

"Love!" exclaimed Gavin, making a face. "Ugh! I don't like mushy stuff."

"Not mushy stuff," said Natalie. "Mrs. Parsons says love can take different forms. Next weekend it's going to take the form of a party."

"That's more like it!" declared Gavin. "What kind of party?But how can a party be bait?"

"It's bait because it's the kind of thing our friends will want to come to--a skating party. So we're suggesting that everyone try to bring an unsaved friend. We'll skate and have snack stuff and there will be a devotional time so they'll hear about Jesus," explained Natalie. She grinned. "I'm going to invite Sierra to come to the party."

"Good," approved Dad, "but I hope the fishing won't end with the party."

"No." Natalie shook her head. "Mrs. Parsons says the party is just a start. Afterward, we still need to offer the bait of loving acts if we want to see our friends come to know Jesus."

How About You?
Are you fishing for men and women and for boys and girls? What are you using for bait? The Samaritan in today's Scripture reading was able to do great things for the man he helped. But often, something as simple as a cheerful smile, sharing a special treat, or just being friendly is the thing that causes someone to accept an invitation to church or Bible club--or to listen when you tell him or her about Jesus. Will you go fishing by using a loving act today?

Listen to this week's episode


Verse: 1 Corinthians 12:27

Now all of you together are Christ's body, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.

Have you ever been asked to "play your part?" What exactly does that mean? It usually means that you are part of something bigger than just yourself. It means that your group needs you to use your gifts to benefit the entire group. How does that apply to Christians?

You as a Christian are part of an important group. What group? The Christian church, which is the family of God. How do you play your part? When you use the gifts that God has given you to meet the needs of God's (and your) family.

How do you know what gifts you may have? Paul knew that we would struggle knowing how we could help others so he made several lists of gifts that God gives to bless both individual Christians and his entire family. Here are some of the gifts Paul says (in Romans 12) we may have to help others:

Prophesying: prophets are able to tell people what God wants them to know or to do.
Serving: this could be helping a whole group of people or one individual person.
Teaching: explaining God's plan for salvation and how he wants us to live our lives.
Encouraging: being able to see where people are and bringing them up or keeping them going.
Contributing: seeing a need or a problem and being part of the solution.
Leadership: both large and small groups need leaders who are focused on God.
Mercy: quiet acts of kindness.

None of these gifts are only for adults. If you are not sure what gift God has given to you, ask Him. Ask others what gifts they see that you have. Try out some of the gifts to help someone else. Using a gift that God gave you to help someone else-that's the very best way to play your part!

Discussion Guide:

We all have gifts, given by God, to use for service in his kingdom. Does it surprise you to know that you have special, God-given gifts? Do you know what they are? God entrusted the message and expansion of his kingdom to believers and God has given believers the empowerment of the Spirit to enable us to do this awesome task. Often the gifts of the Spirit are talents and skills that we have that are enhanced by the Spirit so that they can be used effectively for the purposes of the kingdom.

It may seem that your child is too young to think about or show evidence of spiritual gifts. But some of the gifts are evident at an early age, or at least the things that will be foundational to the development of their gift.. A child who quickly turns to prayer may be exhibiting the early use of the gift of intercession. The leader on the playground may grow up to be a leader in the church. Personality and passions are a part of the gift package that the Spirit gives to believers. Passion about playing a musical instrument may be an early expression of the gift of creative ability. A child with the gift of empathy may grow up to have the gift of shepherding.

Talking with your family about spiritual gifts is important. If you want to learn more, attend a class at your church or check out what resources your pastor recommends. Faith Alive Resources has books for adults and children that are helpful. You can order the books "Discover Your Gifts" in a student or adult version. Visit them at
