This morning, our attention was focused on the Gospel of John. From John 6, we saw that one mark of a true disciple of Jesus is one who believes that Jesus is the Holy One of God. From John 8, we saw that another mark of a true disciple is one who abides in the words of Jesus Christ. From John 13, we saw that a third mark of a true disciple is one who loves others not only as they love themselves but as Jesus has loved us. Finally, we looked at John 15 where we saw a fourth mark of a true disciple – namely, one who is abiding in Christ. So, this morning our students were asked to examine their own lives to assess if: 1. They believed in Jesus; 2. They were abiding in the words of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible; 3. Were loving others, including their own families as Jesus has loved us; 4. Abiding in Jesus daily.
We drove into the reservation at 10am this morning and had a stop in front of the sign at the entrance to the reservation. The sign proudly announces: “Welcome to Wikwemikong, Canada’s Only Officially Recognized Unceded Native Reservation.” The people of Wiky obviously take great pride in the fact that their reserve has never signed a treaty to hand over their land to Canada.
Thank you to all who prayed for Merna. She was able to clearly communicate the story of our first parents’ rebellion and the consequences that followed. Tomorrow, Edwina James, from grade 11, will introduce the children to the beauty of Jesus Christ as the solution to the problem of sin and death. We ask that you pray for her that she will communicate the gospel message with clarity and conviction.
Thank you for standing with us in prayer.
