Devotions

Bible Story: Josiah Finds The Bible

Read: 2 Kings 22:1-13, 23:1-3, 2 Chronicles 34:33 NIV Translation

Josiah was eight years old when he became king. Almost 20 years later, King Josiah sent workers to fix the house of God and they found a book. It was the Bible. When Josiah saw it, he realized that he and the nation had not been following God. So he read the book of the law to the people. As long as Josiah was king they followed God.

Bible Questions:

What did the workers find when they were fixing the house of God? (the book of the law of Moses – the Bible)

What did Josiah do when they found the Bible? (he realized they needed to follow God and by reading the Bible they could)

The Bottomline

God and His Word are one and the same.

MEMORY VERSE: John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (KJV)

Object Lesson How To Be A Success

Take Home Point: To be a success follow God’s plan.
What You Need: Pictures of famous, successful people

Object Lesson Application:
Who wants to be a failure in life? Who wants to be a success? (Show pictures of successful people, allow for response.)

Most people want to be successful in life. Nobody really wants to be a failure. Nobody really wants to end up in jail. Did you know that God wants you to be successful? In fact, God has a plan and, if you follow it, He promises that you will be prosperous and have good success. This is God’s success plan. Read Joshua 1:8, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

I’m going to break it down for you in four easy steps:
1. Read the Bible every day.

2. Think about the Bible day and night.

3. Speak the Bible.

4. Do the Bible.

If you follow these four easy steps you will have good success!
It’s that simple. Notice I said it’s simple, but I didn’t say it was easy. It takes
discipline to read the Bible when you would rather watch a new movie. It’s hard sometimes to do the Word when you don’t feel like it. But if you read the Bible and do what God tells you to do, God promises that you will have good success. It doesn’t help God when you read the Bible. He already knows the Bible. It helps you when you read the Bible. That’s why God wants you to read the Bible. It helps you! God loves you and He wants you to know how to make wise choices and to be successful in life.

Short Film Application

That was a funny short film. It is definitely an exaggeration, but there is also a lot of truth there. The truth is, if we do devotions, that life will go better for us. There is no such thing as a perfect life, but it sure is better if we take time to read our Bible and listen to God. The power verse for today says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” God and His Word are one. If God seems far away what can you do? Read the Bible! As you spend time reading the Bible you are drawing close to God and He will draw close to you. In fact, the primary way that God speaks to us is through the Bible. There are many people who go to church, call themselves Christians and yet they don’t ever read the Bible at home.

Discuss:
• The one thing that God wants is our time.
• We can spend time with Him by reading the Bible.
• Learn to do your own devotions.
• First thing is have a Bible you can understand – NIV or NLT translation.
• Make a daily appointment with God.
• Pick a time and stick with it.

Mother’s Day 2020

Today is Mother’s Day, and it’s a day we set aside to honor our Moms.

Today is Mother’s Day, and it’s a day we set aside to honor our Moms.

Today is Mother’s Day, and it’s a day we set aside to honor our Moms.

Today is Mother’s Day, and it’s a day we set aside to honor our Moms.

Being a Mom is a full-time job. That doesn’t mean 40 hours a week like most full-time jobs. It means 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Being a Mom means that you have to be flexible and be willing to change plans at a moment’s notice. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a full-time paid job, or even go out and have fun. 

Moms do so much for us, we simply don’t have time to list it all. They teach us how to sit up, roll over, stand up, walk, talk, feed ourselves, and dress ourselves. They teach us to use manners and share with others. They provide us with food and clothing and medicine and toys, and sometimes most important of all – those reassuring hugs when we need it.

 Moms are also tasked with the most important job of all: teaching us to follow Christ. If you’re here this morning, it means you have parents that take God’s commands to teach children to love God seriously. More than anything, they want you to become people who love God and love others so that one day, you can teach your own children the same.

There’s a beautiful story about a mother and child in the Old Testament. The child wasn’t even the mother’s child; she was her daughter-in-law. But Ruth still set an example for us to follow; learning to love our mothers the way God wants us to.

READ RUTH 1:6-17 MAIN POINT: Naomi had lost everything, her husband and her two boys. She had no choice but to go home and hope that someone in her family would take pity on her. She didn’t want Ruth to suffer with her, and she selflessly told Ruth to go home. 
Ruth refused. Ruth loved Naomi like a mother. She vowed to take care of Naomi. She would provide for them both, and she would worship God with her adopted mother. Ruth showed Naomi the same selfless love Naomi had shown her. She followed God’s command, to love and honor her mother.

SUMMARY:   Naomi wasn’t Ruth’s real mom, but Ruth treated her like she was. Ruth loved Naomi very much, and she shows us how we can love our Moms.

HERE’S ANOTHER WAY TO TELL MOM YOU LOVE HER: TAKE ACTION. Do something to show her how much you appreciate her. Buy her a gift. Do something around the house! Do one of her jobs so she can have a break. Let her watch one of her shows. Moms sacrifice for their kids all the time! All of us can sacrifice a little time and a little hard work for Mom, right?

Moms are special ladies. They are a gift from God, and they will always be there for us. Let Mom know you love her every day. In words and in actions, let’s all remember to say “I love you” every day of the year!


MEMORY VERSE: Ephesians 6:1

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” Ephesians 6:1 (NIV)

MEMORY VERSE ACTIVITIES:

ACTIVITY 1: Divide the room in half. Pick one side to start and have them all shout the first word, then the other side shouts the second word, and so on until they finish the verse.

ACTIVITY 2: Read the memory verse aloud for each kid. Each time you do, leave out one word. See if the kids can tell you what word you left out.

Kids Need The Gospel Lesson 4: Grace

One of the most challenging things to teach kids is the grace of God. In my opinion, this is why so many kids leave the church when they graduate from High School. They have not experienced the grace of God.

For the most part, the children in our classes are kids that have grown up in church. They are what we call “church kids.” They have good parents that love God. The reality is that they go to church, not by choice, but because their parents go to church.

Our kids grow up in a Christian culture, which is a good thing, but it has a down side. Many of our kids experience the blessing of God, without an understanding of the grace of God and this can set them up for failure. Jesus said He came to “Seek and save the lost.”

One day, I asked the kids in my class, “What is Jesus looking for? What does a lost person look like?” Their response was, “A poor person.” If we are not careful, we can create an elite community – a church full of elder brothers who see themselves as superior to the lost. How do we teach our kids about grace? Here are some suggestions:

Talk about the sins of Christian kids: lying, gossip, anger, pride, jealousy and verbal put downs.
(Read Romans 1:29-30)
• Hand out a piece of paper and ask the kids to grade themselves in these areas.
• Allow your kids to talk about which sins they struggle with.
• Then go around the class and write A+ on every paper.
• Talk about how Jesus got an A+ and when we believe in Him, He gives us an A+.
• Jesus did all the hard work for us

Use the illustration of the parent and a new baby. When a new baby is born, the parents do all the work. They feed her and change her diapers. They go to work every day to pay for the food and the house. The parents do everything at the beginning, simply out of love. As the child begins to mature, the parents ask their daughter to do more stuff to take care of herself. This is similar to us when we come to Christ. We don’t do anything to earn God’s grace. Our good works can’t save, but we are saved for good works. (Ephesians 2:8)

Discuss how when we sin God wants us to repent, but our repentance doesn’t earn God’s grace. God’s grace never leaves us. God’s grace is what empowers our repentance.

Encourage your kids to have an attitude of gratitude, instead of thinking about how they are falling short. Write down a list of all the good things God has done for you.

Read the story of parable of the Prodigal Son and talk about how the elder brother was just as lost as the younger brother. The elder brother never left the “church,” but he thought he was better than his younger brother because he kept all the rules. If you are flowing in the grace of God, you will have grace for your brothers and sisters. You will have grace for the new kids that come to your church. You won’t push people away.
“He declares sinners to be right in His sight when they believe in Jesus! Can we boast then that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. So then we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.” Romans 3:26-28.

Bible Story: The Unforgiving Servant Matthew 18:21-35

Video from LifeKids – The Unforgiving Servant – Matthew 18:21-35

Something to Think About?

What did the servant deserve when he couldn’t pay his debt?

Why should the servant have had mercy on his fellow servant?
