Like you - I love VBS. But sometimes I wonder - is it all worth it?
VBS is runnin' full blast at FBC Nashville this week - sets are being built for VBS 2012 photo/video shoot - 2012 VBS production is well under way - the team is already talkin' about 2013 VBS - bags are packed for a mission trip to help FBC youth group teach not only one but four VBSs in California - it's like VBS 24/7! For many of you - it's the same thing - VBS 24/7!
Ever wonder why do all this? Is it worth it?
Remember Game Day Central? I was an assistant teacher that year. My son Evan was in my class - not by design - it just so happened that's where the director needed to place me. It was ABC day and Evan pulled the teacher and me aside wanting to know more about becoming a Christian. He and I had talked before, several times, during devotionals at home or on the way somewhere - you know - those random conversations kids have with you sometimes. This time was different. It was time. You could feel it.
So, when the other kids in class moved to the next rotation, Evan, the teacher and I knelt in the classroom and I had the privilege of leading my son in a very special prayer - a prayer to ask Jesus Christ into his heart and life! It's been a while but that still makes me smile!
So - is VBS worth it?
