May 18, 2020 – Mr. BurgessThe Exodus from EgyptRead: Exodus 15:1-21Key Verse: Exodus 15:11As we near the end of the school year, I think we should look back and celebrate what Godhas done in the lives of our students and families this year. Let’s make this week a time toCELEBRATE THE LORD and enjoy DAYS OF JOY! As you read our Scripture, the Israelitespaused after God’s great deliverance of His people from slavery in Egypt. The people hadbeen in Egypt for over 400 years (Exodus 12:40, Acts 7:6).When Moses was 80 years old, God raised him up to challenge Pharaoh to “let my people go!” God designed 10plagues to target particular objects of the Egyptians’ worship. “I will bring judgment against all the gods of Egypt: Iam the Lord” (Exodus 12:12).1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10.Nile River turned to Blood—Egyptian magicians made more blood!Frogs—Magicians made more frogs. If they were so powerful, why didn’t they make the frogs disappear?Dust & GnatsSwarms of Flies—No flies for Israelites.Death of Domestic Animals—No death among Israelites’ cattle.BoilsHail & Fire—No hail for Israelites.LocustsDarkness—No darkness for Israelites.Death of the Firstborn—No death for Israelites. When God saw the blood, He passed over.After the firstborn sons of the Egyptians (including Pharaoh’s son) were killed, the Israelites left quickly. However,they were blocked when they arrived at the Red Sea. Water in front of them with the Egyptian army approachingquickly from the back. The angel of God moved between the people and the army; the pillar of cloud also movedfrom the front to the back. Throughout the night, the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the otherside; neither the army nor the people of God were near the other!Meanwhile, all night God drove the sea back with a strong east wind which divided the waters. He created a DRYPATH across the Red Sea! Maybe as many as 2 million people walked between the walls of water! Can you imaginewalking between these high walls of the sea? How would you have felt? Scared, afraid, grateful? I wonder if itlooked like an aquarium, if you could actually see fish swimming around! I think I would have tried to put my handin the water and splash my sister!Once the Israelites had crossed, they turned back in panic to see the powerful Egyptian army racing toward themon the dry path! Pharaoh had 600 chosen chariots in addition to other chariots (14:7). It looked like the army

would catch up to them until God made the wheels of the chariots come off and threw the army into confusion.Then God released the water, and it buried the army until “not one of them survived.”What a huge victory! God defeated the Egyptians and all their gods! Apparently, Pharaoh himself may have beenkilled as well (14:10). There is no god like our God! That’s why the people of God decided that they must pauseand thank the Lord for saving them!Key verses in the song of celebration: “The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation” (2). “Who among the gods is like you, O Lord? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory,working wonders? You stretched out your right hand and the earth swallowed them. In your unfailing loveyou will lead the people you have redeemed” (11-13).Activity:Look back on this school year. What victories did God give to you students or to your family?They might not be quite as dramatic as our lesson from Exodus 15, but I am sure God has givenyou blessings through the year. What God-sightings do you remember? Write these down. Couldyou make them into a song? Or you could sing a praise song you all know with your family. TodayI want you to CELEBRATE the blessings of God from this year! Praise the Name of the Lord WITHJOY!Prayer:Heavenly Father, we praise and celebrate You today! We are amazed at Your power AND thatYou love us with an everlasting love. Thanks for the times our family saw You caring for andnurturing us this year. In the powerful Name of Jesus, Amen.

May 19, 2020 – Mr. BrookeJoyRead: Luke 15; Galatians 5; Ephesians 5One of the stories that I heard on a regular basis while I was growing up was the story of theProdigal Son. Sunday school, Bible class, and chapel speakers all provided a picture of whatthis story truly looked like in the verses of Luke 15:11-32. God has used this story over the years to teach me aboutHis great love and grace for His children. But it took a few times of moving through this story before I began tolearn about the extreme actions of the father, the disappointing actions of the older brother, and how both relateto our lives.In the story, the lost son asks his father for his inheritance immediately. Ultimately, he is telling his father that hewould prefer the things he can give rather than relationship he can offer. He travels off and wastes all of themoney. The son is so discouraged and “lost” that he finds himself longing for the food that the pigs are eating. Hehas hit rock bottom! And this is the moment we learn about the joy of the father and his expectation for us toreflect it to others.The Father“So he (the lost son) returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming.Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.”The action of the father alters the life of the son.In the culture and tradition of the times of Jesus, it would have been outrageous for the father to run. In a similarway, it is extraordinary that God runs toward us. I can only imagine seeing the joy of the father transferred tothe son. I believe God longs for His joy to be transferred into who we are and how we live. Joy is one of the fruit ofthe Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5. God is working in us to be people of joy because He is a God who takes joy inus. The father runs to the son just like He runs to us. He goes on to celebrate the son who was dead and is nowalive. I pray that our community takes joy in a God who saves and makes us alive!The Brother25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So hecalled one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your fatherhas killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But heanswered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you nevergave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends.’”The action of the father is unrecognizable to the brother.The challenging part of this story is watching the older brother. While it seems that he has a fair point to make, hehas refused to allow the joy of the father to transfer to himself. We have the perfect picture of what happens to us

when we remove the joy of the father. You see, God expects us to know Him deeply and reflect His character to aworld in need. He calls us to imitate Him (Ephesians 5) so that others will know how remarkable He is. This willrequire us to live countercultural lives. It will require us to know God so deeply that we allow His power tooverflow out of our lives.Would your response reflect the joy of the father or the anger of the brother? Is your joy rooted in knowing thegenerous joy of the father?The action of the Father must alter our livesso that we let the whole world know how good He is.We live in a world that is searching for joy at every turn. It is critical for Christ-followers to reflect the joy of Christ.If we are able to do this, it will greatly alter our lives and bless those around us.Activity/Prayer:Lord, please allow the joy of the Father to transfer into my life so that I will know You, experienceYour joy, and reflect You to a world in need. Amen.

May 20, 2020 – Mr. BurgessStones of RemembranceScripture: Joshua 3-4Read: Joshua 3:14-4:9Some 40 years after crossing the Red Sea in a dramatic fashion, the next generationapproaches the Jordan River. This is a significant time because they are crossing into thePromised Land flowing with milk and money honey. Their parents had been denied accessbecause of their unbelief following the report of the 12 spies who had explored the land onthe other (west) side of the Jordan.[Ten of the spies gave a report of large, powerful people in the land and fortified cities. They gave their opinion thatthe people of the land would devour them. The Israelites should NOT try to enter the land. Joshua and Caleb, onthe other hand, encouraged the people to trust the Lord. Yes, there were some obstacles, but they were on God’sside! “Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them” (Numbers 14:9).The people were punished for their lack of faith in God; NONE of the people 20 years and older could enter thePromised Land, except for Joshua and Caleb. The people did not trust that God could protect them and help themconquer the land, so they couldn’t go in.]In today’s story, that generation younger than 20 is grown up, and they are trusting that their God can help themdefeat the different cities. They are taking a step of faith as they cross the Jordan and march into this new land!God wants the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant to be the first ones to enter the river. Then God givesstrange instructions. The priests are to walk into the river at flood stage while the water is surging (like the riversin our area right now)! They could be swept downriver! God does not stop the water first like He did when theycrossed the Red Sea. The priests trust God and walk into the swollen river. AS SOON AS THE PRIESTS’ TOESTOUCH THE WATER, the water stopped flowing! They stepped out in faith trusting that God had the power to stopthe river and that He would. I wish I had that kind of faith! The priests stand in the dry riverbed while the peoplecross into the Promised Land.Then Joshua picks 12 men, one from each tribe, to pick up rocks from the riverbed and take them across the river.These rocks are stones of remembrance. When the children see these rocks, they are to remember when Godperformed another miracle and stopped the Jordan River at flood stage so they could cross on dry land! God wantsthem to remember His power and what He did for them! Once again it is time to CELEBRATE our God WITH JOY!!!When the Israelites faced new challenges in the Promised Land, they could look back at these stones to remindthem of God’s faithfulness in the past. The stones would remind them that God can be trusted; God will be withthem in the future! Go with confidence!

Activity:Focus (like you did on Monday) on times when you have seen God helpyour family in a special way or a particularly difficult time. Can you findan object (something visual) that reminds you of what God did for yourfamily? The Israelites carried rocks out of the river to remember how God helped themcross the river without a bridge. Late last fall, the siding on our house was replacedbecause of hail damage. Our house was 39 years old, and the siding needed replacinganyway, yet God provided free siding for us by our insurance company because it wasdamaged by hailstorms! I have in our house a piece of the old siding and a piece of thenew siding. In fact, I have a small piece of the new siding in my office as I type this. Ihave labeled it as you can see! This is like a stone of remembrance for me. I see thesiding, and I thank God again for His faithfulness in helping us financially.A journal where you write down your God-sightings could contain Stories of Remembrances! When challengescome your way, remember what God has done for you in the past. Claim His promises for the future. Come up with at least one Stone of Remembrance or a Story of Remembrance from this school year!Prayer:Heavenly Father, we praise and celebrate You today! We are amazed at Your power AND thatYou love us with an everlasting love. Thanks for the times our family saw You caring for andnurturing us this year. You give us confidence to face the problems and obstacles of the future.In the powerful and loving Name of Jesus, Amen.

May 21, 2020 – Mr. BrookeJoyAs we take the final steps of the 2019-20 school year, I wanted to share some of the things in which I have foundincredible joy. While this season has not been what any of us anticipated, I believe the practice of honoring thework of the Lord is a life-altering discipline. It was not that long ago that I sat in a devotional led by a good friend.He took out his phone, opened his Notes app, and began scrolling and scrolling and scrolling. It was a list he hadstarted one night, over a year ago, as he began to practice gratitude. Each evening he would make note of fivethings he was grateful for from that day. He communicated to the group that this practice, while simple, allowedhim to take joy in the Lord. As we think about our strength coming from the joy we have in the Lord (Neh. 8), I amreminded to be grateful for the following.-Character of the King (Hebrews 13:8)—I am overwhelmed with joy when I think of how good,consistent, unchanging, and faithful our King is.-Christ as the Savior (Romans 5:8)—We have the privilege of walking with One who rescues and savesdespite our repetition of sin. I am filled with joy when I think of how distinct the love of Jesus truly is.-Community (1 John 1:7)—I am filled with joy when I consider the community of people that God hasbrought together at WCGS. God is doing a great work in our community and intentionally shaping us, evenin this unique season. I am grateful for others, who bring a wide variety of gifts.-Students (Psalm 8)—Energy, life, purpose, growth, humor, kindness, and conviction. Students bring somuch joy to our school and to my life. As our Connect Group wrapped up our year yesterday, I wasreminded that these students are a true gift from the Creator of all things.-Opportunity (Romans 12:2)—I am grateful that God calls us into His work and provides a purpose for usas His people. Our world is desperate for a purpose, and I believe God calls us into that opportunity. Heinvites us to partner with Him in doing His work and reflecting His goodness. The opportunity is a highcall, but He walks with us into it.God’s love for us provides us to live lives of joy. It is in the moments when I pause and refocus on who He is that Iam filled with that type of joy. Would you join me in reflecting on the year and naming five things for which youare grateful? Seek to identify the hand of the Lord in the blessings He has given. I am overwhelmed that He doesnot simply save us but then blesses us in ways that only He can.Activity:Identify five things that God has provided you or your family over the course of this year.Prayer:Father, You are our source of joy! Thank You for your generosity toward us and the year Youhave provided.

Good morning! This is the last of the devotionals for this season of e-Learning. We trust that you have found thembeneficial as you have taken time to read them, reflected upon them, and discussed the truths of Scripture with yourfamily. Special thanks to Mr. Brooke and Mr. Burgess for leading the charge with this aspect of our e-Learning.We trust each of you is well. We love you dearly and are looking forward with great anticipation to the day we canwarmly greet you and welcome you back to campus. Have the best day in the Lord!May 22, 2020 – Mr. ClumWalking in TruthScripture: 2 John 4-6; 3 John 3-4Read: 3 John 4One of the many joys of my work is the new parent interviews with prospective families. This time not only allowsme the opportunity to share our Christian philosophy of education and what sets this school apart from otherschools, but it allows me to begin a relationship/friendship/partnership that will be invested in for years to come.(In some cases, it has been a lifetime!) As I conclude these interviews, I ask this question: “If we are sitting herenine years from now, and your child is on the eve of his/her graduation, what would you hope for him/her to havetaken away from their WCGS experience?” (This is currently true for 64 of our families with graduation nextTuesday, May 26.) Parents, do you remember how you answered this question? Take a moment to reflect. Theanswer to this question provides me with a glimpse into your hearts and helps me see what is most important.Often, parents share the hope that their children will deepen their faith and knowledge of Jesus and fall more andmore in love with Him. Ultimately, they hope and pray that their kids will learn to know and walk in truth.Teaching God’s Word and helping children see the joy that comes in and through a relationship with Jesus Christare distinctives of Wheaton Christian Grammar School. Our focus on spiritual formation, developing one’s biblicalworldview, and integrating biblical truth into our teaching provides us the opportunity to partner with you and thechurch to lay a solid foundation based on the truths of Scripture. Why? So, our/your children are grounded in thetruth and not swayed by false teaching (Colossians 2:8; 2 Peter 2:1-3). Note that false teaching was prevalent backin New Testament times and continues today. Take a moment to discuss with your children the false teaching(s) oftoday. As parents and educators, we must be intentional to teach our children the truths of Scripture, while doingour best to also live out these truths before them.Recently, Mrs. Jackie Messer (eighth grade Literature teacher) and Mrs. Audra Spradley (art teacher) were blessedwith the births of precious little girls. I know in my heart because of what I have seen lived out in the lives of thesetwo moms that the desire of their hearts for their little girls is that they grow up knowing and walking in the truth.There will be no greater joy for Michael/Jackie and Luke/Audra than to see this be true in the hearts of EmmieMesser and Emie Spradley.This morning, our eighth graders will be stopping by school to drop off their books. We will hand them a packetwith awards, the 2020 Cornerstone yearbook, and their spiritual portfolio (SP). Several years ago, we began thepractice of creating SPs when children enroll at the school. It follows them each year, and upon graduation we passit to their parents. The SP contains spiritual markers/stones of remembrance during their years at WCGS. They

allow our students to look back and reflect upon how God has been penning or writing their story. How about you?Let me encourage you to take a few minutes right now to reflect on how God has been penning your story. Taketime to thank Him for His hand upon your life. Ask Him to continue to show you His ways, teach you His paths,and guide you in His truth (Psalm 25:4-5).As we conclude, read 3 John 4. Nothing gave John more joy than to hear that his children were walking in the truth.Note the fatherly concern for his children. As a dad, I desire a lot of things for my daughters. The Lord has metmany of those desires, and there are also unmet hopes. However, what brings us the most joy is that they knowJesus and are striving to walk in truth.Activity:Can you name some stones of remembrance in your life? Share them with your family. For thosewho want a creative challenge, consider making a timeline of your life thus far. Indicate variousstones of remembrance with symbols. You can easily keep this – and add to it over time!Prayer:Lord, we know that You are the way, the truth, and the life. Keep your Word grounded in ourhearts, so that we will experience the joy that comes from knowing You and walking with you.We pray this in Your most precious name, Amen.
