NIPTO, Day 127

Hey all!
Today seems like it's been mostly productive!
I went for a walk this morning. Prayed for a couple people... listened to music. It was good.
Came home and ate&showered and got ready for the day and stuff... finished my driving post... then read more of The Irresistible Revolution (Still fantastic!). And I read some blogs. And now I'm going to blog some more! (LATER) Or I'm going to eat lunch and read? I don't even remember what I did this afternoon. HORRIBLE. I did this post about Saturday night, I guess.

And I went to VBS. SOOOO much fun! I'm helping with the K-1 group. There are 3 girls and 3 boys. There are twins. A boy and a girl. Lets see if I can really remember everyone's names. Lilly, Bella, Audrey, Alex P, Alex B, Daniel. There. The only one I'm not completely sure about is Audrey. They're sweet. Adorable. So smart and funny. We had our opening "ceremony" annd then we went to our game station and played a "planet" game where the kids had to throw balls of different sizes into a big bucket. The girls won ;)
Then we had music (HURRAH for learning new mostly corny songs!). And then snack (crackers and cheese with grape kool-aid). And then craft (beaded cross necklaces). And then DISCOVERY (BUBBLES! They put water and dish soap together in a bucket and put helium air into the bucket. When you scooped them up and blew them, they FLOATED! It was so cool.

Now: Pictures! =)

The spaceships
Alex B with suds in his hair!
Singing at the end. With motions. (Notice the silver space-suit with helmet in the background!)
Captain K (not to be confused with Kirk) sans helmet
 There'll be more about VBS tomorrow night, I'm sure!

And just as a side note, I love my Owl City Pandora station. (And my Beauty and the Beast station!)

Ephesians 3:1-6

1For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles—

That reason is that we're a part of God's holy temple.
Paul points out that he is a prisoner. He is BOUND to Christ. He's not free. He is not his own. And it's not for himself. It's for the sake of others. Paul was kinda crazy ;)

2Surely you have heard about the administration of God's grace that was given to me for you, 3that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly.

God gave Paul grace to pass on to the Ephesians. It's a mystery. About which he has already written briefly =P
More on that... now.

4In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets.

By reading this, these people were able to have insight and to understand the mystery of Christ. Other people didn't know about this. God didn't tell them about it. But God revealed it to Paul to reveal to these people. Facinating. What exactly is this mystery? Read on...

6This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.

This mystery is that through the gosple, people who were not God's "chosen" people (the Jews) were heirs together with God's chosen people. They were all together. Members of one body. Sharing the promise in Christ Jesus.

Well. I'm going to go to bed. We have to get up early tomorrow morning for Urban Vision. It starts at 9. Or something like that ;) All I know is what time we have to leave!
Soooo. Good____ (insert your time of day!)
