Sailing the Sixty-Six: When We’re Close to God it Shows
First watch this lesson video:
Here are questions and an activity to help you talk about the lesson with your kids.
1. David was a good king, and led his people like a shepherd. Why would a shepherd make a good king?
2. Who is our Great Shepherd and King? (Jesus) How does Jesus care for you as your Shepherd?
3. David was close to God and it showed. Did you see the fruit of the Spirit in David’s life as you watched the lesson video? For each of the Fruit of the Sprit listed below, name one way that David showed that quality:
5. The Fruit of the Spirit list from Galatians. Let’s make it our memory verse for the week! To help you practice, watch and/or download the Fruit of the Spirit song from the bottom of this webpage.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
– Galatians 5:22-23
Seek God together
God wants to work in our lives to grow us to be more and more like Him. Use the P.R.A.Y. building blocks of prayer for your prayer time…
PRAISE – Take turns completing this sentence of praise: “Jesus our Shepherd and King, thank you for _______________”
REPENT – Have a child read this prayer…“Lord, forgive us for the times when we wander from You. We forget to lean on You for help. We become selfish and unloving. We fail to show kindness. We give in to our anger and we lack gentleness and self-control. Thank you, God, for your patience and forgiveness. We repent and ask you to come into our hearts and change us.”
ASK – Take turns asking God to help you grow a specific fruit of the Spirit: “Holy Spirit, please grow the fruit of ______________ in me.”
YIELD – Take a moment for everyone to silently yield to God and say yes to Him as King. Then have a child lead in this prayer: “Thank You Lord, for never giving up on us. Please fill us with Your Holy Spirit and help us grow as we learn to walk with You. Thank You for being with us. Our lives belong to You. We love you, Lord Jesus, our Shepherd and our King.“
This first song is the Fruit of the Spirit song performed by pastor Christina and the puppets!
This is a song that celebrates how good God is! Our Shepherd is “good in every way.” Praise Him together with this fun worship song:
