CB Kids May 1–7

This week our CB Kids began a new series called “The Messengers.” They’ll explore different ways
that people deliver messages, and how it all connects to the way people delivered the message
about Jesus!

We are God's Messengers

Ask your child: 
  • What's the difference between email and snail mail? Why do you think that we call it that?
  • Have you ever been in the car and seen a sign that said, "Detour"? What does it mean to be detoured?  
  • What message about Jesus do we need to tell others about?

Have some fun:
Help your child choose two special people, write them each a letter (or draw them a picture), and then put them into the mail. Help your child choose two special people and then send them an email.  Which did they prefer doing? Why?

Read these passages from the Bible:
  • Acts 9:1–20
  • 1 Corinthians 15:1–9

Talk about it:
  • When Acts 9 opens, does it seem like Saul would be a messenger for God? What changed Saul
  • How do you think Saul felt when he heard Jesus' voice? Was he detoured?
  • After Saul (Paul) chose to follow Jesus, he traveled a lot to help spread the good news about God. Paul would write letters to churches to help them learn and grow, and now we have some of them in our Bible. 

Pray together:
God, thank you for making us all your messengers! We are grateful that we don’t need any special talents to deliver your message. We just need to be willing, like Paul was. Please help us to deliver the message about Jesus to the people around us this week. Amen.

Learn the memory verse:
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And
I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” Isaiah 6:8

Recap:
There are many things we can tell people about Jesus, but one thing we cannot leave out is that He gave His life for us.  You don't have to be a great speaker, a pastor or a teacher in order to tell people about Jesus.  We are all messengers!
