The Truth About You…Who I am
I belong to God
“Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him. We are his people. We are the sheep belonging to his flock.”
Read Psalm 100:3 (at the top)
This verse sums our next truth about you very nicely. God made you and you belong to God.
Here’s a couple songs to help you remember exactly that.
God made you. You are created exactly the way you are supposed to be.
You belong to God. And God loves you. Nothing can change that. Not ever.
1 – Other than God, who do you belong to?
2 – Since you belong to your parents, what kinds of things do they do for you? Are they good things? Or bad things?
Belonging to God means that you get to be a part of God’s family. And, just like your parents love you and care for you and keep you safe, God loves you and cares for you and keeps you safe.
Read John 10:1-18. or watch this
Jesus told this story to help people understand that we belong to Him, and that He will care for us.
3 – Who are you in this story? Hint: think of the cotton balls
4 – What makes Jesus different than the hired hand or the robber or the wolf?
5 – How does it make you feel to know that you belong to God?
6 – Other than you, do you know anyone else that belongs to God? Who? Wow! What a big family.
