Mother’s Day: Jesus is Smiling at Me


1. HOOK:

  • Today is Mother’s Day. Who wants to thank God for their mother? (get 1-2 kids to share what they are thankful for)
  • Who do you go to … When you are sick? When you are hungry? When you need help? When you are sad? When you did something wrong? When you have good news? When you are happy? (try to lead the kids to answer their mother or father)
  • What would mummy and daddy do when you go to them? (hug, kiss, sayang etc)
  • How many of you have fierce/strict parents? Even if you have the fiercest and strictest parents, do you think they still love you with all their hearts? Do you think that if you are in trouble, they will help you?
  • How we view our parents will determine how we respond to them. If we see our mother and father as loving and kind, we will run to them no matter how we are feeling or what we have done because we know they will always have their arms open wide. But if we see our parents as always angry and mean, the minute we do something wrong, we will try to hide from them because we fear punishment.

2. LESSON: Jesus is Smiling at Me

  • In the same way, how you picture God is how you will live your Christian life.
    Angry God = fear and dread
    Smiling God = happy, confident and blessed
  • So it’s important to see the right “face”/picture of God.
  • The Good News today is that God is NOT angry with us. He knows us through and through. He knows every bad thought we’ve had, every little lie we’ve told and every wrong thing we’ve done … and yet, He loves us more than anything.
  • How is that possible for a holy God? That’s because all our sin has been put on the cross and paid for by Jesus! That’s how we can go from sinner to child of God. When God looks at us, He sees His perfect son, Jesus, and He smiles at us with so much love and joy.
