"I'm in the Lord's Army"
Last week in our elementary chapel, we sang this song at the end as we marched out. There is nothing like singing this song with the motions and watching the expressions of children as they sing.
This reminded me of how we as adults have lot to learn from our kids. Matthew 18:1-5 talks about becoming like little children in regard to entering the kingdom of heaven.
Just last week, I had a discussion with a staff member about the dependence of little children on adults but also the unassuming and innocently blatant childlike faith they have in Jesus.
That is why when I see children singing, "I'm in the Lord's Army," I get the sense that they believe it and understand they belong to Jesus (especially after a chapel where the 1st grade class shared about the armor of God!). I must say, it was great to see so many adults doing the motions with the kids, too! What a blessing to have so many of you join us for chapels on Fridays!
