Tonight’s ‘Little Big Church’ looked at the idea of kings and queens. Some of the children dressed up and became queens for the evening:
They were involved in knighting loyal subjects (Sir Stephen of Keys and Sir Gary of Percussion), who then had to make them crowns and sort out their thrones.
They then listened to requests from their subjects (the rest of the congregation), dispensing money to help children in Haiti and India.
However, some of the requests could not be solved by gold coins: a giant threatening the nation’s safety and a law banning prayer needed God’s intervention, not theirs.
The truth is that God wants us to do all we can to help people, and if it’s in our power to help, we should. There are many situations in life, however, which are beyond even the most powerful person’s ability to intervene. We need to realise that God is ‘the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God’ (1 Tim 1:17) and that He wants to be our King too.
Rend Co Kids’ song ‘King Of Me’looks at the stories of David and Goliath, Daniel in the lions’ den and Jonah to remind us that these stories are not just history. They are testimony of God’s intervention in human situations, and, as the song says, ‘He will do the same for me.’ We can be confident that God is the King and is able to do far more than even the most powerful of human kings or queens.
