LIFE APPLICATION | Confidence—Learning to see yourself the way God sees you
MEMORY VERSE | I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Psalm 27:13, NIV
Grove Kids | Sunday Notes
God So Loved the World
(Supporting John 3:1-21)
BASIC TRUTH | I can trust God no matter what.
We kick off the month with the most famous verse ever: John 3:16. God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life (NIrV). John is quick to remind us that our life is best when built on God’s love for us through Jesus. Our confidence comes from Him.
Bottom Line: You can be confident because God loves you. God loves us so much. God sent Jesus to bring us life to the full. We can find confidence when we choose to build our life on Him. We pray that kids will understand how much God loves them. Knowing that can help us find confidence in any situation.
Message to Parents
What’s your favorite summer memory? A detailed trip to a new place, where that you crossed all the t’s and dotted all the I’s? Or was it one of the simple things you did with those you love? Here’s an article to bring us back to the simpler things our kids will remember!
Now for your Kids...
Grab your Bible, a dry erase marker and get ready to experience Jesus with your kids! Here’s your theme…Confidence means to see yourself the way God sees you!
Read John 3:17 with your kids.
Share with them, “God sent Jesus to fix a big problem. You see, God made us to be in relationship with Him. But instead of trusting that God’s way is the best way, people sinned. People chose to disobey God and do their own thing. By sending Jesus to die on the cross and take the punishment for our sin, God made a way for us to be forgiven. He sent Jesus because He loves us. God made a way for us to be in a relationship with Him, forever.”
Ask them, “How can we remember this? I know, grab your dry erase marker and let’s write out this verse somewhere on your mirror. You can even cover where your face goes if you’ve run out of space.”
Now share with them, “As you look in mirror, remember that God loves you so much that He sent Jesus, not to make you feel bad when you mess up, but to save you when you do. That’s how much God LOVES you. “
Have fun with your kids and in prayer thank God for the love He gives us every day!
