00:05 When my heart begins to fear He is my Light.
00:10 I can smile for He is near. Jesus my Light.
00:15 When I'm feeling sad, He is my Light.
00:18 He reminds me I can be glad, Jesus, my Light.
00:23 He is the light, Yes Jesus my Light.
00:27 In Him is no darkness, In Him is no night.
00:32 Wherever He leads me, He makes my way bright.
00:37 I'll shine for Jesus, Jesus my Light.
00:43 Here's Aunt Francine.
00:44 Hi kids. I'm so glad to be here in the tree house. Yaaaay.
00:52 Well I think you for closing that door.
00:54 It's no problem.
00:56 Aaah. I am so excited to see you Come on over here Kalil. I'd
01:00 like to have you. I like having all of you here at the tree
01:04 house. Is that enough room? Yes. Oh I'm so glad. Hey, we need to
01:09 welcome the kids at home. Would you like to say Welcome kids?
01:12 This is Jesus My Light. And I'm Aunt Francine and this is little
01:16 Ginger and we are so delighted that you are coming with us in
01:20 our tree house. We want to know a little bit more about Jesus
01:24 and His character. Do you know that He likes spending time
01:27 early in the morning and in the evening and do you know what He
01:32 liked to do in Nazareth. He would often go up the mountains
01:37 and He would love to talk to His heavenly Father. And He would
01:40 study the scriptures every once in a while and let His light
01:45 shine. You know that reminds me of a song that says Thy Word Is
01:49 A Lamp Unto My Path. Do you know that song? Do you really know it
01:54 Would you like to sing it? Shall we ask Ben to play it for us?
01:57 Play it Ben. Yaaay.
01:59 Will you sing it with us?
03:07 Oh I'm so glad that God wants to be the light of each of our
03:12 paths. Yeah! You know He would spend lots of time there.
03:15 Have you ever been where it's really, really dark and you were
03:20 scared. Yes, yes. Yes. You haven't. You're lucky. Can I
03:25 tell you a quick part of a story here. I was in Michigan and we
03:29 had to walk about a half a mile and we forgot our flashlight and
03:33 it's midnight. We had just helped bake a whole bunch of
03:37 bread for a camp and we had to walk to our cabin. And we
03:42 couldn't see anything. And what do you think we had to do?
03:44 Pray. You're right, that's exactly what we did. And then
03:48 once we were really quiet and listening to God's voice we
03:53 could pay attention after we said Amen we heard the water and
03:59 we could hear it and we kind of knew what path we needed to go.
04:02 And it's only because we were quiet and listening to God's
04:07 Word. Wouldn't you like to have that? Yeah, yeah. You know what,
04:11 hey, before we go to our Bible story Kalil will you help us get
04:15 a, let's see if there's any mail I want to know if we got any
04:19 mail lately. I haven't checked the mail lately.
04:22 We got some.
04:23 Do we? Yaaay. I love having mail Do you like having mail? Yeah.
04:29 Ooooh. Oh, Ginger's excited about seeing mail too. Look at
04:35 this. I have some beautiful pictures. Wow. And you know what
04:40 Can you read what it says? It's kind of hard to read. I actually
04:46 can't read some of these pictures. But you know what,
04:49 that is so special. What is a special love letter from God?
04:53 His Bible. His Bible. How often do we take time to read the
05:02 scripture?. How many Bibles do you think you have in your home?
05:05 Put up how many fingers you think you might have in your
05:08 home. Alike (fingers up) And how often do you take time to
05:12 read it in a day? Oh oh. You know sometimes we don't take
05:19 time to read God's word. And you know it's really hard because I
05:23 try to make a habit of trying to read the Bible first thing in
05:27 the morning. And sometimes I'm in such a hurry that I forget to
05:32 take time for God. Ohh, oh no. You know what, I think we can
05:39 learn something about Jesus and His character. Are you ready for
05:42 a Bible story? Chorus of yes. ♪ ♪
05:51 So you know in the Bible was probably there in some scrolls
05:54 or in some kind of scripture and we don't know exactly how Jesus
05:57 might have had access to them. We don't know if it was a gift
06:00 from the Magi or they used it for money or maybe it was from
06:04 the temple. We don't know how He got it but it seems like Jesus
06:11 possibly studied the scrolls. And you know what? Did you know
06:14 what was interesting about those scrolls? Do you know how they
06:17 write? Do you know how they write? They write from right to
06:22 left. You know that. Good job. And you know that they had 22
06:26 letters. Not so many vowels. They had 22 letters. That's kind
06:31 of different. And so I can imagine Jesus going up on the
06:36 mountain side very early in the morning like He always did and
06:41 dusk where He would take time for God. And I would just like
06:46 to imagine what that would have looked like. Would you like to
06:49 see our picture book. See I can imaging Jesus and you know what
06:56 I see Him praying and taking time to read God's word.
07:00 The prophet Isaiah says, Surely He has borne our griefs and
07:04 carried our sorrows. Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten
07:08 by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions
07:12 He was bruised for our iniquity the chastisement for our peace
07:16 was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep
07:20 have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way. And
07:25 the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was
07:29 oppressed and He was afflicted. Yet He opened not His mouth.
07:33 He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before
07:37 it's shearers is dumb so He opened not His mouth.
07:42 Heavenly Father, please help me to do anything for you. Please
07:49 help me to know that I am perfect in your sight and please
07:53 help me to learn all of your scriptures. In your name I pray
07:57 Amen. ♪ ♪
08:07 I'm finding myself at a loss for words. And the funny thing is
08:18 it's okay. The last thing I need is to be heard.

09:03 I can just imagine Jesus having a wonderful time out in nature
09:11 listening to God. Would you like to take time and make it for
09:17 Jesus. Take that time, even if it's just one verse in the Bible
09:21 before you go to school. That's a hard thing to do. I have to
09:25 practice it too but can you do that for me? Because that's
09:29 something that's really important because that message
09:31 can go throughout the whole day. You know somebody that I knew
09:36 and a story, there is a person that is a surgeon and I want to
09:43 know if you recognize who this person is. Let's see if I can
09:47 get it on and he is right here. Do you know who this person is?
09:52 Who is this person? Hmm. Ben Carson? That is Ben Carson.
09:58 And you know what, he had a little temper and he had to pray
10:04 Jesus, you've got to help me. And you know what his favorite
10:06 book is now? The Bible. You've got it. It is the Bible.
10:10 You know, we can learn so much about nature and the skies and
10:15 we can find out about the cumulus clouds and cirrus clouds
10:21 and stratus and the nimbus. I can tell you've been to school.
10:27 We can learn so much about nature and about God and He
10:32 wants to have His word in your heart. Don't you want to have
10:36 Him in your heart today? Yeah! I sure do. Are you ready for
10:39 some questions with Aunt Francine? Yeah. You think you're

11:04 Woo. That's a tough one. How many of you said C. Did you say
11:08 C. You are right. It was orally, meaning talking and reading the
11:14 scriptures. That's how we can learn about God's word, right?
11:17 Yeah. Right? Okay.
11:25 Would it be A - During the noon time. B - Early in the morning
11:30 and at dusk or C - When He was helping others? When was Jesus
11:36 often talking with his heavenly Father? Did you say B. Yes,
11:43 you're right. I'm so glad that we can have Jesus as our light.
11:47 Do you want Him to be your light today? Yeah, Yes. Shall I tell
11:50 you a quick story? Yeah. You know it was really, really dark
11:54 one time. Did I tell you that story? How dark it was. Have you
11:58 ever been really, really scared? In your covers and sometimes
12:03 you're so scared you don't know what you're going to do. What
12:06 can you do when you're really, really scared?
12:09 You can pray.
12:10 You can pray. And remember some of those verses. So if you take
12:14 time to read the Bible what do you want to do? You want to
12:19 write it in your hearts, right? Because we want God's word to be
12:23 the light for our path. Are you ready to have Jesus as the light
12:27 for your path? I'm so thankful that Jesus wants
12:30 to be the light for
12:32 our path. Don't you want to make time for Him each day?
