Sent to Serve1 min read

To celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week, we have collected devotions written by elementary school children. The following was written by Braelin, a fifth grader from St. Michael’s Lutheran School in Richville.

“Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).

Katy’s dad got a new job, and Katy moved to a Lutheran School. Katy didn’t know anything about Jesus, because she had never gone to church or been taught about Him. At her school she met a girl named Claire, and Claire was a Christian. Claire had decided to invite Katy’s family to church that Sunday. In church Katy learned that Jesus was born in a manger, and died to take away our sins. Then on the third day He rose from the dead. Just as Jesus was sent to serve and teach people about the Word, Claire was sent to serve.

We pray,

Dear God, we thank you for sending your one and only son to die on the cross for us, and that He took away our sins. Amen.
