the BIG plan

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

This week in Kidventure we started a whole new series called The BIG Plan. We talked about disobedience (also called sin) and that no matter how hard we try we will never be able to be good enough. That’s why God needed a BIG plan to save us.

Have you ever been disobedient? Disobedient means doing something wrong even though you know you shouldn’t do it. We all have to answer yes to this question, because none of us – no one in the whole world – is perfect. (not even your mom or dad!)

Does God like it when we are disobedient? How do you think he feels when he sees us disobey our parents, or our teacher, or a certain rule?

If we do something wrong we can always tell God we’re sorry and ask him to forgive us and he always will! There is never a time when God won’t love you or forgive you! That’s part of his BIG plan that we’re going to learn more about in the coming weeks in Kidventure. But for now…

What does it mean to be obedient? Who should you listen to and obey?

In Kidventure we talked about how to Obey, Right Away, All the Way, In a Happy Way. Are you practicing that at home this week? Are your parents impressed with how God is teaching you and helping you to be more like Jesus? They should be! Pray together that God will help us obey our parents and him and thank God for all the love and patience he shows us!

Our memory work for this series is a verse we’ve already learned but it’s a great one to go over again. It’s all about God’s BIG plan.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. ” John. 3:16

And for the youngest group:

“God loves me like crazy! He sent Jesus to save me!”

Just for fun, here is the video we watched in church from our last series Win Against Sin. If you watch and can tell me (Corrie) what colour Jack’s shoes are in the video when we’re in Kidventure next Sunday I’ll give you a special prize : )
