I Wanna Be Just Like Jesus - A Living Sacrifice
Last Sunday Discovery Point:
I Wanna Be Just Like Jesus – A Living Sacrifice
Today's lesson the children learned that to be just like Jesus, they must give their whole self to God and become a pleasing offering to Him. As Jesus sacrificed His life for our sins, so that we may have everlasting life, we must also become "Living Sacrifices", holy and pleasing to God. (Scripture used: Romans 12:1-21)
"Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1-2 NIV
Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
This week, find a program in your church or neighborhood where you and your child can pitch in to help others in need, even if only for a few hours. Perhaps serving food to the needy, washing dishes, collecting clothes, etc. When finished, discuss with your child the blessings that were felt by serving others without expecting anything in return.
Dear Lord, help me to be just like Jesus. I truly want to be a humble servant, just like Jesus. I truly want to live my life depending on You for everything, so I can show love to others, just like Jesus. And Lord, I truly want to offer myself as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You, just like Jesus. Amen
