the BIG plan

God saved us and called us to be holy, not because of what we had done, but because of his own plan and kindness.” 2 Timothy 1:19

Our series, the BIG plan, is going strong. This week we talked about how we couldn’t save ourselves from sin but how God made a plan to save us from all the bad things we do.

Can you explain the experiment we did in Kidventure to your parents? We used a plate and a penny, some coloured water, a glass, and a candle. Do you remember what happened? (Here’s a clue to help if you need it – minus the penny)

Why do you think God came up with a BIG plan to save us? What does our memory verse say about why God made a plan? What does 1 John 4 say about why God made a plan?

Did God make his BIG plan because he felt sorry for us? Because he was frustrated that we couldn’t ever be good enough? Because we worked really hard and he rewarded us? NO! God made his plan because he loves us! Not only does he love you, he loves you LIKE CRAZY!

Now that you know how much God loves you, can you share God’s love with others? Make a list of five things that you can do to show other people love. I’ll get you started:

  1. Do a chore or job for your brother or sister (or mom or dad) without them asking you to. When they’ve noticed you’ve done the chore or job for them, tell them it’s because you love them.

Great! Now go and do it and cross all the items off your list!

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 : )

SWORD of the SPIRIT

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

God knows exactly what we need to do battle. The final touch, a weapon. This gives us the winning blow.

the SHOES of THE GOSPEL OF PEACE

“Then Jesus said, “Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God’s good news to one and all.” Mark 16:15

Last Sunday we learned about the shoes of the gospel of peace and how important it is to have a good pair of shoes or boots to wear!

What are your favourite pair of shoes to wear? Are they sparkly or glittery? Are they one colour or lots of colours? Do they have many laces to tie up or are they easy to slip on your feet so you can go, go, go!!! Right now a good choice of shoes to wear aren’t shoes at all, but boots! Our boots protect our feet from the cold and ice and snow.

God gave us an important (and fun!) job to do. He wants us to tell his story to our friends. He gives us a good pair of  “shoes” to wear to protect our feet while we share his good news. Do you remember the truths we talked about in Kidventure? About how Jesus was born, died, arose, ascended and will return again? And about how God loves us all? God want us to share that good news with the people we know.

Has God ever done anything wonderful for you? That’s also something we can tell our friends about. Is there anything kind or thoughtful that you can think of to do for a neighbour or a friend? That’s also sharing God’s good news! There are so many ways to share God’s love with others!

Pray that God would help you share his good news with people that you know. Then take a look at this video that tells the story of Paul and Silas who decided that, no matter what, they would keep telling God’s story and sharing God’s love with anyone who would listen.

the BREASTPLATE of RIGHTEOUSNESS

“Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.” 1 Corinthians 1:30b

Today we learned about the breastplate of righteousness and how God gives it to us to protect our hearts, the most vulnerable parts of our bodies.

Righteousness is a big word. Do you remember what it means? How do we become righteous? Is it something we do or something God does for us?

Sometimes the Devil tells us lies like “God doesn’t love you,” or “You’re not good enough.” How can the breastplate of righteousness protect us from lies like that? What should we always remember about God’s love for us? Does it ever stop? Can we ever change God’s love for us?

God showed us he loves us so much by sending Jesus to die for us so that we could be free from sin. What can we do to show God that we love him?

Take a look at this song, Because You Love Me. It reminds us that part of wearing God’s breastplate of righteousness is making good decisions and to follow God’s better way.
