- Jesus starts making changes in the way we
think when He becomes our Lord. Explain we have a will to do
what is wrong. God wants to change that into a will to do what
- (Speak with the children)
- Do you say you are a Christian and then act
badly to others? Saying you are a Christian means that you have
chosen to follow Jesus Christ and let Him be the boss of your
life. When you ask Jesus to come into your heart, you are asking
God to teach you how to be like His Son. Be ready for God to
show you what He wants to change about you!
- (Teach the children)
- God knows that we cannot be perfect. He also
knows that some of the changes won't be easy to make. The Holy
Spirit can give us His power, but He needs our help. He may need
to move some things out of our way. He may want to change the
friends we have or the way we spend our time. We must be willing
in our hearts to change. God will help us to be more like Jesus.
- (Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
- New Direction - Seek the Right Path
Joshua Jackrabbit was running a race with
Emmi Squirrel. He was trying so hard to win the race that he
did not see the turn in the path. It changed direction because
the tree was in the way. Emmi squirrel will help to guide Joshua
on this path when they race again. Joshua needs to keep his eyes
open for the quick turns.
Repeat today's Bible verse.
- When we don't see the changes that God needs
to make in us, God has to show them to us over again and again,
until we are willing to be the children of God He wants us to
be. If we are New Creatures in Christ, we will listen to God
and do what He says. When we don't, we need to ask Him to forgive
us and try again.
Worship God with music.
