Jesus perfects us

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
(Galatians 5:22-23 ESV)

The Fruit of the Spirit
We started studying the Fruit of the Spirit this month in PeeWeeVille and in Creek Kids/K-3rd.  I love this unit because we will look at each of these attributes or fruit that should be seen in our lives.  I love it because we will see how perfect Jesus is at each one - we will also talk about when we aren't perfect at each.
Epic Fail
Our 4th and 5th Graders began a unit on failures this month.  I love that unit too, because we look at how none of us measure up.  We all have failures in our lives.
I bet you are wondering why I love these units about our failures...............
It's because they remind us of Jesus' perfection.  They remind us of God's love for us in the midst of our failures.  They remind us that we can't earn our salvation - we aren't capable - we are sinners to the core..................but we have a savior in Jesus Christ.  He paid the penalty of our sin - He bore our sin and disgrace.....our failures.  He loved us that much.
These are the lessons your child is going through with us in PeeWeeVille and Creek Kids.  Use us as a tool this month as you disciple your child and teach them the beautiful Gospel of Jesus.
Let me know how we can help you further because we want to partner with you each week.
