Philippines – Mission Moment

Have you ever seen a castle? They are usually enormous, with high
walls and large stones. There are castles throughout the world made
of hard marble and even ones covered in glittering gold! The Bible
and our catechism tell us that God has a kingdom. It is a kingdom
greater than any castle this world has ever seen. God’s kingdom
is not made of stone or marble or gold. It is much better. God’s
kingdom is wherever people hear the Word of God and believe it!
Right now, missionaries are sharing this message with people in
the Philippines, many of whom are very poor. They may never have
seen a castle made of stone or marble or covered in gold. But that is
okay. They have seen something better! They have heard God’s Word
and have seen God create a kingdom in them as they believe the
good things He does for us through Christ.
