Welcome to Faith by Acts if this is your first time and if you are returning I thank you for your faithfulness. We that write only are worthy if the letters we arrange mean something and someone comes to read and enjoy. You are fulfilling that role and I offer my profound thanks. The more I write, the more I understand how to target my writing so I deliver a solid result. I ask you to comment about what you read so I can continue to grow as a writer.
Whether you know it or not you are part of the 2015 A to Z Challenge now. In short this is a blogging challenge to write 26 posts over the 26 non-Sunday days of the week using each letter of the alphabet. For Faith By Acts I have chosen to highlight some of my favorite bible verses. For A I am centering on the word Admit.
A few years ago in our Vacation Bible School curriculum we began to highlight the ABC principle of teaching kids how to come to faith. Admit, Believe and Confess. Just because it was designed for kids doesn’t mean it won’t apply to adults as well.
One of my favorite examples of this comes from Left Behind 2 and is delivered by Kirk Cameron. Below is a snippet from the movie with the scene where he lays out the concept.
The most important thing is to ADMIT we all are sinners and all have sinned. That is the beginning of the process and then we can move to step 2, Believe which I will cover tomorrow. I invite you back to read more.
