YIBC’s Hope for VBS
We believe children are precious gifts. Parents protect, train and care for children so that they will be able to live on their own. However, there are many challenges in life. Our prayer is that children will grow up to be a person who has the power to overcome any trials in life without losing their hope.
It doesn’t matter how healthy you are, how much money you have, or how smart you are, you will lose your strength to go on living if your heart is discouraged. Our hearts can be distracted and get by many different circumstances. That is why the Bible says “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” (Proverbs 4:23)
Our hearts are constantly faced with doubt, anxiety, pain and discouragement. Even the most advanced security system won’t protect your heart from these negative experiences. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the only one who can protect our heart.“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:11, 13)
“I can do all things.” The power that enables Paul to do “all things” is not within himself, but the power of Jesus Christ. Jesus will live in the hearts of those who believe in Him. Those who believe in Christ can endure in any circumstances because of Christ’s power in them.
Every year, we share about Jesus Christ to children and their parents through VBS at Yokohama International Baptist Church. But, it is not only children who need to protect their hearts. We, adults, need to have the power to protect our hearts from the problems we face at our work place, home, and in parenting.
Our hope is that everyone will meet Jesus Christ and believe in Him.
