Vuvuzela Legacy

The vuvuzela has been exported to every continent on the globe and now it can be heard all over the place (whether we like it or not!) My little boy, Joshua, who is 2 years old, can blow the vuvuzela better than I can and he knows all about the 'famous' instrument. The vuvuzela legacy was evident at lunch today, when he rolled up his piece of ham and put it to his mouth, saying 'vuzela' (his word for the vuvuzela). I chuckled to myself and thought 'an instrument that makes a dreadful noise has made an impact on my son!"

How much more precious is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and yet many people feel that kids are to young to understand it - how wrong can we be! Sure, they don't get things like the Trinity, Incarnation, Ascension, Trans-substantiation, the Rapture and so on, but neither do we! The truth is, all they need to know is that Jesus loves them and that they can love Him back. That's enough of a start!

May the legacy of Christ continue to be felt all over the world and especially in those places where his name has not been heard yet and in those places where Jesus' name hasn't been heard for a long time.

Psalm 112:6 - "Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever."

Living in Grace,
