Kids SS: Q4 – What else did God create?

Q4: What else did God create? God created all things, and all his creation was very good.

Our memory verse is Genesis 1:31

“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”

John Calvin: “God has given us, throughout the whole frame-work of this world, clear evidences of his eternal wisdom, goodness, and power; and though hi is in himself invisible, he in a manner becomes visible to us in his works.”


You may have seen this video before, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Are9dDbW24 a zoom out from a person to the edge of the universe, and then a zoom in down to the protons and neutrons. It gives a sense of the breadth and depth of creation. Colossians 1:16-17 says “16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Jesus Christ is holding the very universe together, down to the protons and neutrons, and out to the furthest reaches of the universe.

It might make you feel small, and it rightly should. James 4 says “we are a vapor.” That smallness should lead us to worship. 

It also should embolden us, because the God of the universe that has made all things, knows the hairs on your head. He knows you and loves you. He moved heaven and earth to secure your place with him in eternity by the sacrifice of his precious Son.

Share with your children this week the incredible weight and glory of God, and that He is the creator of everything, and that He created them.


Kids SS – Q4: How and why did God create us?

This week our question is:
How and why did God create us? God created us male and female in his own image to glorify God.
Our memory verse is Genesis 1:27
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

J.C. Ryle said
The glory of God is the first thing the God’s children should desire…It is the purpose for which the world was created. It is the end for which the saints are called and converted. It is the chief thing we should seek, that “God in all things may be glorified (1 Pet 4:11)”.

This week, talk to your children about their purpose in life. Why are they here. The purpose of all creation is to glorify God. In what ways do you make that your goal in life? How can you share that goal with your family.
Glory has behind it the idea of light and weight. It is the display of the radiance of who God is. And it is recognizing the worth and weight of him. Our purpose in life is to display his radiance and tell of his worth. Tell your children this week how great God is and how much He is worth.


Kids SS – Q2: What is God?

Question 2:What is God? God is the creator of everyone and everything.

The memory verse is Psalm 86:8-10, 15

8 Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
    no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All the nations you have made
    will come and worship before you, Lord;
    they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
    you alone are God….15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
    slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

This question is one of the most basic, but seems to be a question that our society is ill-equipped to answer. For some God is the big vending machine in the sky. Others think he’s like Santa, watching you and judging you. Many in our society say God is just a crutch, a figment of our collective imaginations. 

But the Bible says that God is the creator of everything, and that we can have a relationship with Him because of His Son. God is great and worthy of our praise and adoration. God can be trusted because he stays true to His word. 

The virtue this week is Awe. Perhaps this week you can talk about how awesome God is with your kids. He is so incredible, there is no way to comprehend him. And yet, Jesus came to Earth to show us God. That’s awesome too! Spend some time standing in awe of our amazing God.


Kids SS: Jesus Will Return

BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 21–22
MAIN POINT: Jesus will return, destroy evil, and make all things new.
KEY PASSAGE: Revelation 21:5
BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What will happen when Jesus returns? Jesus will
destroy all evil and make all things new.

Peter’s story of faith began when Jesus said, “Follow Me.” (Matt. 4:18) Peter and his brother Andrew—two fishermen from Galilee—left their nets and followed Jesus. As one of Jesus’ twelve disciples, Peter witnessed firsthand Jesus’ miracles and teachings. He saw Jesus heal his mother-in-law (Matt. 8:14) and raise a little girl from the dead (Luke 8:49-55). He saw Jesus walk on water, and Peter walked on water too. (Matt. 14:25-29)

Peter believed that Jesus is the Messiah (Matt. 16:16), and he was understandably upset when Jesus predicted that Peter would deny Him (Matt. 26:34-35). Peter fell asleep as Jesus prayed in the garden, and he drew his sword to defend Jesus when He was arrested. (Matt. 26:40; John 18:10) Peter denied Jesus three times, but after the resurrection Jesus appeared to Peter and the other disciples. Then Jesus restored Peter to ministry at the sea of Galilee. (John 21:15-19)

The first 12 chapters in the Book of Acts record the Holy Spirit’s work through Peter after Pentecost. God revealed to Peter that the gospel is for everyone—Jews and Gentiles. Peter was arrested and imprisoned for sharing the gospel, but an angel of the Lord rescued him. (Acts 12:1-8)

When Peter wrote his second letter, he was in prison again. Peter was aware that death was imminent. (2 Pet. 1:13-15) Like Jude, Peter warned against false teachers. Soon after his letter was written, Peter was killed in Rome as Jesus had predicted. (John 21:18-19) 

Some people thought the believers were foolish for thinking Jesus is coming again. Peter explained that God is patient, and He wants everyone to trust in Jesus. At just the right time, Jesus will come again, and we look forward to the day when He creates the new heavens and a new earth. 

As you talk about this Bible story with your kids, remind them that Peter’s letter was written nearly two thousand years ago to believers who were not far removed from Jesus’ life on earth. Today, we still wait eagerly for Jesus’ return, and God calls us to use our time on earth as an opportunity to better know and love Him, and to tell others about Him 


Kids SS: Jesus on the Throne

BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 4:2–5:14
MAIN POINT: All people and all creatures in heaven and on earth will
worship Jesus.
KEY PASSAGE: Revelation 21:5
BIG PICTURE QUESTION: What will happen when Jesus returns? Jesus will
destroy all evil and make all things new.

John was on the island of Patmos when he had a vision. Jesus appeared to John and showed him what will happen before the end of time. John wrote about what he saw in the Book of Revelation. John saw a vision of the future. John saw a throne in heaven and the Lord was on the throne.

John saw a scroll in the Lord’s right hand. A mighty angel asked, “Who is worthy to open the scroll?” But no one in heaven was worthy. No one on earth was worthy. No one under the earth was worthy either. 

John began to cry loudly because no one was worthy! Then John saw Jesus, the resurrected Lamb. The elders threw their crowns at His feet. They worshiped Him and sang a new song. John heard every creature, everywhere, worshiping the Lamb together.

Revelation 4:11 says, “Our Lord and God, you are worthy to receive glory and honor and power, because you have created all things, and by your will they exist and were created.”

John’s vision gives us a glimpse of our future and also reminds us of a present reality: The Lord is on His throne. After His death and resurrection, Jesus ascended to heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. (Heb. 10:12)

Jesus, the Lamb of God, is worthy of our praise. All the creatures in John’s vision worshiped Jesus. As you read this Bible story with your kids, hold up Jesus as our treasure who is worthy of all honor. Worship Him together in song.

John cried when he saw that no one was worthy to open the scroll. Then John saw the resurrected Lamb—God’s Son, Jesus. Jesus was killed on the cross so that we could have forgiveness and eternal life. Jesus is worthy. He deserves all praise, honor, and blessing.
