On my heart imprint Your image, Blessed Jesus, King of Grace,
That life's riches, cares and pleasures Have no pow'r to hide Your face.
We can find 'imprints' on most everything we own or purchase - from our clothing to our groceries to our cell phones. They bear an image (or logo) of the company or business providing the product.
In Christian education, we are in the business of casting an image as well. It's one of a Savior who came as the Lamb of God to bear the sins of the world. It's an image that we hope and pray the Holy Spirit will imprint on the hearts of all the children who spend time in our classrooms, singing songs and hymns, learning Bible stories, and receiving the life-giving, life-changing grace of God from Jesus, the King of Grace.
Pray that this will be true for all the children who attend our LeadaChild schools and after school programs:
Let the clear inscription be: Jesus Crucified for me,
Is my life, my hope's foundation, And my glory and salvation.
