Our series Kids Rock continued this week, it is a series where kids get to see how children from the Bible did some pretty amazing things.
Basic Truth: God made me.
Memory Verse: “God made us to do good works.” Ephesians 2:10, NCV
Key Question: Who can do what God wants you to do?
Bottom Line: I can do what God wants me to do.
Bible Story: I can listen to God.
Samuel 1 Samuel 3:1-10, 19
Samuel as a young boy served under a priest at the temple named Eli. One night as they were headed to bed, Samuel heard someone calling his name. Thinking it was eli he ran to him and asked him if everything was alright, but Eli did not call him. Confused, Samuel went back to bed but as he was about to go back to sleep he heard the voice calling his name again, once more he ran to Eli, but he did not call him. This repeated once more but Eli realized that it was God speaking to Samuel! Eli told Samuel to go back to sleep but this time say “Speak Lord, I am listening”. He followed these instructions and sure enough God spoke to Samuel about all the plans that he had for him. Samuel even though he was just a kid learned to listen to God, and show how anyone no matter their age can do great things for God!
Try reviewing this story with your little one to remind them that we don’t have to be worried so long as we remember that I can listen to God.
You can use this guide to revisit this lesson throughout your week:
This week we continue our monthly theme of Creativity in a series called Gadgets and Gizmos Uniquely Wired>> Wonderfully made. We have also defined Creativity as imagining what you could do because your made in God’s image.
Our memory verse for this month is found in Psalms 139:14
This week we dive deeper into the story with Genesis 1:26-2:25 and we begin to see how God created Adam and Eve. God saw the earth and wanted to fill it with his image, So Adam was formed from the dust of the earth and formed Eve from Adam’s rib. He wanted mankind to bring him glory as they spread out on the earth.
Bottom Line: God made you, this is probably the most crucial message for anyone to understand, and it is not to be taken lightly. We pray that kids learn how creatively and wonderfully made we are, most importantly they will know that they will have value because they are God’s child.
