– Mommy, please hurry! I don’t want to miss anything of today’s fun, My favorite part, the music is about to start!
We caught this conversation in the parking lot on our fourth day of VBS.
This group of amazing and all AMPED kids learned about The Early Church (John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42-47, 3:32-37).  We remembered the great command of Jesus: to love one another as He loved us; in this way we will show that we are his disciples. The Early Church lived like people mattered and invested in each other while carrying on the command of Jesus.
But, How to live like people matter?  Show them respect and treat them the way we want to be treated. We help them when they need it. We encourage or lift them up when they are hurting or going through a tough time. Showing someone that they matter can be as simple as smiling and asking them how things are going.
This AMPED day ended with more praise to The Lord time and we saw the protagonist of the parking lot conversation clapping and jumping with each song.

 “I have come so they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.”
