The Lord Is My Shepherd

Posted on Updated on

This psalm is probably the best known passage of the Old Testament. It is a testimony by David to the God’s faithfulness throughout his life. This psalm serves as a reminder to our kids that God watches over us and takes care of us.

“1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23

Peter Denies Jesus

Posted on Updated on

Peter boldly told Christ that he would never deny Him, but when Jesus was arrested that is exactly what Peter did. When the rooster crowed the third time he realized what he had done, just as Jesus foretold. Peter left the courtyard crying bitterly in shame.

We like to think we would never deny Christ the way Peter did, but there are many ways in which we could do this every day- not saying grace in front of friends and family that are unbelievers, following the crowd so we do not seem uncool, giving our own opinion and not saying what the Bible says so no one will be offended, and not witnessing to those that are around us. Thankfully Jesus offers us mercy, and forgiveness by His perfect love. He can restore us just like He mercifully did with Peter.

“I sought the Lord, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:4-5

Peter Denies Christ

Instructions

  4. Finally glue four feathers to each side of the rooster.

You can also use large craft feathers in place of the paper feathers.

Gospel Cross

Yellow– God Is Holy
Black– Our Sin, Total Depravity, Fallen Nature
Red– Blood Of Jesus, His Perfect Sacrifice, Substitutionary Death
White– Repentance
Blue– Faith
Green– New Life, New Creation

Gospel Cross

 

Instructions

  1. Print out, onto a page of light gray cardstock, the cross template. (Template)
  2. Cut it out.
  3. Print pages three to nine onto colored construction paper or cardstock. (Each page is labeled according to color.) Or if you choose you can print out the pages on white paper and your kids can color them in by hand.
  4. Using paper clips place each square on the cross in place. (The paper clips will hold each square in place so you are left with the correct  spacing.)
  5. Glue each square in its place, one at a time.

Cross Number Game

Posted on Updated on

Cross Number Game This is a quick but fun game to play with your kiddos.

Print out the sheet and give one to each of your kids. (Template) In order to play this game you will also need a single dice. You can be creative and use a jumbo foam  dice.

Each child will take a turn rolling the dice. Whatever number the dice lands on, the child that rolled the dice has to color in that number on their sheet (just one number not all three of the same number).

If they land on a number that all three spots have been colored in the next player will take his turn.

The winner of the game is the child that can color in all of their cross first.

Cross Number Game 1 Everyone has a couple of wild dice throwers in their family or class. Every time they throw the dice it seams to land all over the place, except the board. I found this trick on Pinterest a little while ago. Just take any small container (I am using an empty Gerber baby food container), and place your dice inside.

This way no matter how hard they roll the dice, the dice stay in place. This trick is great to use with board games that include many small pieces like Monopoly and Risk. How many of us have not had a friend or family member roll the dice and accidentally scatter all the little houses around. Use this trick and save yourself the headache. 🙂

The Lords Supper

Posted on Updated on

A cute way to remember the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and the significance of the Lords Supper.

“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
