The Truth About You…Creation
Land and Plants
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
This week in Kidventure we talked about how God created land and plants. Even though God hadn’t created people or animals yet God had set a plan in motion and he knew that we’d all need food to live.
Read Genesis 1:9-13. Why do you think the Bible mentions that all the plants and fruit and trees had seeds in them? Could we grow more plants and fruit and trees without seeds? No! But guess what? God can! Isn’t that amazing? All he had to do was speak and it appeared. God is so powerful.
We also talked about how Jesus described himself in John 15:5 as a vine and we are branches of that vine. What does the verse say about staying connected to Jesus? What are some ways that you can stay connected to Jesus?
God has such a great plan for us. He created food for us because he wanted to nourish us so we would stay healthy and strong. He sent Jesus to us so that we’d have a way to stay connected with him so our hearts would stay healthy and strong. You can think of it as food for our soul!
Do something this week that will help other people be nourished. Maybe you can take food to drop off at a food bank. That will nourish their bodies. Maybe you could remember to pray for someone every day this week. That will nourish their soul. No matter what you decide to do, know that when we help nourish others God feeds us, too. God wants you to stay connected to him, you’re one of his favourite people!
Another way you can stay connected to God is by practicing your memory verse! Our memory verse for this series is Nehemiah 9:6
“You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You made them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.”
And for the younger kids:
“God made the stars, He made the trees, He made the animals, and God made me. From everything big to everything small, We thank you God, you made it all!”
And here is the video of the actions we recorded! Stay posted for the younger group’s action next week.
