God, tell me a story about…a king
“They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings – and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
It seems fitting to end our year of stories with Jesus, because after all, we’ve been hearing whispers of him throughout the year.
1 – What is a king? Do we have a king? England has a queen, do you know her name?
Jesus is a king, but he does not look like a king. He does not have gold and jewels, he does not ride on a beautiful white horse, he does not live in a castle or wear a crown.
2 – What do you know about Jesus?
Read Matthew 1: 18-23
Read Luke 2: 4-20
Read Matthew 21: 4-7
3 – What does it mean to be King of Kings?
Read Ephesians 1: 19-23
4 – How did Jesus show us that no one can defeat him, that he will always win?
Read Matthew 28: 5-7
5 – Kings get to make new laws, or rules. Has Jesus made any rules?
Read Matthew 22: 37-40
6 – Have you asked Jesus to be your king? If so, are you following his rules?
