His Plan, His Purpose
Write it down and make it plain....
8 Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. 10 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms,
Consider the natural “elementary” way of learning to read. You begin with the building blocks of learning the alphabet letters...letters combined to make sounds and words....then words into sentences....sentences into paragraphs, paragraphs into stories and essays, and so on until, with substantive writing practice in class, you can write a prolific dissertation to bless everyone who reads.
What we have done in The “I AM” Alphabet book is put select Bible verses in ABC order for easy memorization and recitation. We made it alphabetical so even the youngest can recognize and remember, and the eldest child can be challenged by memorization of verse and scripture location.
We turned each verse into an “I am...” confession of faith to establish in the child’s Spirit who they are in Christ. This will come through daily recitation, memory work, and copy work (writing practice) of The “I AM” Alphabet book.
Our prayer is that every child who reads this simple book grow in the knowledge of who they are in Christ and will stand confidently and proclaim who they are in Christ Jesus, from A-Z and at the end say, “I am because the “I AM” says that I am.”
With all our love in Christ Jesus,
