Super Cchicken and Chikie Nikky

I did an object lesson in kids church with a rubber chicken about how God takes the chicken out of you. I hid a rubber chicken in my shirt and pulled it out when I was talking about sin, I also had a small rubber chicken and talked about the small chickens that we need to deal with.
during the service a had a great idea about having a weekly video with the chicken visiting kids in the church.

breaking the back of legalism

God has been leading me through a journey it consist of finding out why do I do the things I do, this is some of the questions that I am asking my self
1) Am I doing this because it's scriptural or learned behavior?
2) Am I doing this because it has to do with the culture?
3) Is this a conviction given by legalistic teaching or is it a Holy Spirit inspired direction
4) Do I believe in what I am teaching (don't get scared I do) ?
5) Is this choice going to really make God angry at me?

Asking myself this questions has dissolve the fog that surrounds the myth of legalism.
In this walk I found out that God loves his kids and he wants to spent time with us and by us putting an assortment of man made rules its us that don't want him to invade our private space.

seeing what God sees

I got this crazy idea about what God sees us

What are his feelings when he looks at me?
What are his emotions when he sees me doing something wrong?
does he see himself in us and it brings a smile to his face?
If he was interviewed about our relationship with him what would he say?
when we can't sleep is watching over us ?
does he sing? what does it sound like?
if you took his picture would it look like one of us?
what would his anger look like?
what is his favorite type of music?
how would his hug fell like?

I have asked him this questions would you?
