God's creation lesson 1

God said, Let there be light; and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night, first day.

Do you like to live in the lightness or darkness?

Can you reach the flower if there is no light?

God's creation lesson 2

God made the expanse and called it Heaven. He separated the waters which were under it from the waters which were above it, a second day. God also gives us the air to live. Air is invisible and no smell. How do we know it is existed? Let me prove it to you!

You can fell the air by blowing the plastic bag.

You also can prove the air is existed by blowing the pieces of paper.

I can blow off the candle by blowing "the air" to it.

The Found Sheep

Do you remember the Good Shepherd?

This is the kind of care that God has for mankind. He knows each of us by name. He does not want even one of us to go astray. Mankind had gone astray and God sent his son, Jesus, to find us.

"I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice."

——Ezekiel 34:16 ESV
