Kids Rock Review . 1 Timothy 4:12
In the first week we talked about a young Jesus in Jerusalem after he went missing from his family, they later found him in the temple teaching the elders and adults about God and they were astonished that a young boy knew so much about scripture and God! Jesus here showed us that no matter how old you are you are never too young or old or no matter where you come from you can tell others about God.
Next, we talked about how a teen David who took on the Philistine giant Goliath when nobody in the entire Israelite army would not. He trusted in God and using only a slingshot and a single smooth stone he managed to take down Goliath. David showed that by trusting in God we can do brave things.
In week 3 we discussed about how Daniel and his friends were invited to work for the king. By working for the king it meant they got to eat what he ate which meant wine and loads of meat. God had wanted Daniel to eat healthier foods and felt that eating mostly vegetables and water were better and it proved to be the right choice as they were in better in shape than all the other servants, by proving this everyone else were then fed the same way. Daniel showed that we can do what God wants us to do.
Finally, last week we discussed that when Jesus was teaching an enormous crowd of five thousand people, after he finished Jesus could tell they were very hungry and they knew they had no money or food to feed them all but a little unnamed boy stepped up and gave them 5 loaves of bread and two fish. After blessing the food Jesus told them to distribute the food and they could have as much as they wanted. When they were done there were more than 12 baskets of leftovers and everyone had their fill! The young boy showed that once more at any age you can help others.
The past two months were all about finding the stories that even children did amazing things that made massie impacts in the Bible. This story can go even deeper to show that no matter your background, your situation God can use you for amazing things and he has a great and and powerful plan for all of us.
You can use this guide to revisit this lesson throughout your week:
This Week we conclude Gadgets and Gizmos but start a theme centered on Uniqueness – discovering who God made you to be so you can make a difference.
Our memory verse for this month is found in Ephesians 2:10 10 We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do.
Finally, we head to 1 Corinthians 12 and learn more about the Gifts of the Spirit. We each have role to play in this world. God gives each one of us a unique gift through the Holy Spirit to help make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
Bottom Line: God made you to do good. God doesn’t give us these special gifts just for us. He gives them to us, so we can help Him change the world and tell others about Him. We pray that through this passage, kids will start to search for and discover how God has uniquely gifted them to help Him do good in the world.
Some people may have incredible skill in music, others art, writing, acting and many more each one able to fulfill a profoundly important purpose. This series was all about the uniqueness and creativity that God placed into us and helping kids realize we are more important than we think in a world where kids aren’t seen as much as they should. By knowing this we pray kids will be empowered to be able to share God’s message anywhere they go.
