Week 3: Lion King: I am a Child of The King


VIDEO: Lion King (10 mins)

In the Pride Lands of Africa, Mufasa, the lion king, rules over the other animals. There is much celebration over the birth of Mufasa’s son, Simba, who will one day take over as king.

However, not everyone is happy. Mufasa's younger brother, Scar, is very jealous. He wanted to be king. And now, Simba will be the heir to the throne, not him.

As Simba is growing up, Scar plots to get rid of him. He conspires with the hyenas to provoke a large herd of wild beasts into stampede into the gorge where Simba is. When Mufasa finds out about the stampede, he rushes to rescue Simba, bringing him to safety. But when Mufasa tries to climb up the gorge's walls himself, Scar throws him back into the stampede, killing him.

After Simba finds his father’s lifeless body in the gorge, Scar tricks him into thinking that Mufasa's death was his fault. “You did it … it’s your fault. Run away. What would you say to your mother? You can never be forgiven.”

Stricken with guilt, Simba runs far, far away from home, collapsing in a desert from exhaustion. He is found by some jungle animals who take care of him and becomes his friends, and they lived a carefree life together.

Years later, Simba is now an adult. One day, Simba meets Nala, a lioness from his father’s pride. She tells him that Scar has ruined Pride Lands, and begs him to return as king. However, Simba still carries the guilt over his father's death. He prefers to stay in his cosy life in the jungle instead of returning to be king.

Simba sees a vision of his father, Mufasa. His father tells him to remember who he is — the true king of the Pride Lands — and to take his rightful place.

Simba then realizes that he can no longer run from who he really is. He goes back home, faces his past, disposes of Scar and his lies, and becomes king of Pride Lands.


Like Simba, sometimes we forget who we are. We act and behave in a way that does not reflect our true identity. We need to remember WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE.


Simba is the son of King — the heir to the throne at Pride Rock. He is the beloved child of his father, Mufasa, who loves him so much and will do anything to protect him.

Similarly, when we believe in Jesus, we become children of the King. We become His heirs. God is the God of everything, and everything He has, He wants to give to us as our inheritance. We, His children, are to reign in life and to show the world who God really is.

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” (Romans 8:17)

Simba thought his father was dead and gone; he thought his father had left him. But he didn’t realise that his father lived on in him. Similarly, Jesus died, rose again, and returned to heaven, but His Holy Spirit lives in us forever and ever — He is the mark and guarantee of who we really are.


Simba was deceived by Scar and tricked into running away out of guilt over his father’s death.

The devil is the father of lies. He likes to trick God’s children into thinking that if we have done something wrong, God will judge us and bad things will come near us. This causes many of God’s children to run away and hide from God.

How do you see your Daddy God? Is he judging you when you make wrong decisions or choices? That is not true. Today you have the gift of no condemnation because of Jesus, the son of God was condemned for all your sins (Romans 8:1).

Just as Mufasa gave his life to save Simba, Jesus gave His life to save you. Jesus was judged in our place for every one of our wrong action, thoughts and words.

When we make mistakes or do wrong things, don’t try to hide it or run away from it. But let’s all look to the cross and say, “Daddy God, thank you for Jesus, who took all my punishment for me on the cross so that I can become a child of the King.”

Be careful who listen to — the devil, the roaring lion? Or Jesus, the Lion of Judah!


Let me tell you about another young prince who tried to run away from his destiny. The young man grew up in the greatest palace in a land called Egypt. His name was Moses. He was supposed to be killed as a baby boy, but God saved him … so that one day, he can lead God’s people out of Egypt.

One day, Moses tried to save a Hebrew slave from being beaten by an Egyptian. In the end, he killed the Egyptian. Guilt-stricken and afraid, Moses ran away in to the wilderness. He lived for many years taking care of sheep, with his wife and child.

Moses was a prince living as a shepherd in the desert. He may have forgotten who he was and what his calling was. But God didn’t forget him. God appeared to him in a burning bush and reminded him that he is supposed to lead God’s people out of Egypt.

Moses had many excuses — he was a nobody, he couldn’t speak, he was too insignificant, send someone else etc. But God says He will be with him — God will help him speak and teach him what to do. (Exodus 3-4)

Despite Moses’ many excuses and trying to run away from his true identity, God used him to deliver His people out of slavery in Egypt to the Promise Land.

We are children of the King. We have a destiny in Jesus. And we can live as who we truly are!


I am a child of the King.

There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus

I can live as a child of a King.



Get into small groups. Get the children to profess their identity in Jesus and to pray for each other.

Week 2: Kungfu Panda: I am Chosen


VIDEO: Kungfu Panda

How many of you have watched this movie? Kung fu Panda

What’s the name of the Panda? Po

Po helps his goose father, Mr Ping, in his noodle restaurant. He has big dreams of becoming a kung fu master … but it seems like a faraway dream.

One day, there was a kung fu tournament in town to choose the Dragon Warrior — the one who will be able to defeat the enemy, Tai Lung the Leopard.

Po wanted to go see who would be chosen the Dragon Warrior. He rushed there, but he was too late —the door was closed. So he tried many ways to get in, including sitting on a chair strapped with fireworks, and crashed right in the middle of the arena where Oogway, an old tortoise, proclaims him the Dragon Warrior.

Po couldn’t believe it.

Neither could all the other kung fu masters, including Shi Fu.

They rejected him. Po was no kung fu master. He was a big, fat panda — clumsy and slow. He couldn’t do anything right except eat! How could he be the Dragon Warrior? Shi Fu was convinced it was all a mistake.

Po was very discouraged. He wanted to give up. There was no way he could be a kung fu master and defeat the enemy.

But Oogway believed in him. Po was no coincidence, no accident. He was the Dragon Warrior. And it was up to him to believe that.

And when Po believed that he was the chosen one, the big fat panda was able to defeat Tai Lung the leopard. He was not just a kung fu master, but the Dragon Warrior.


Sometimes, like Po, we think we are too big, too small, too dumb, too cool, too inadequate to achieve those dreams.

We compare ourselves with our sisters and brothers, our cousins and friends, and say we are not good enough.

But I have good news for you. You may have a big dream … but you have a BIGGER God.


The world may say you are weak, small, forgotten and loser, but God sees a treasure in you — just like Oogway sees Po as the Dragon Warrior, not as a clumsy, unskilful panda.

Do you remember when God asked the prophet Samuel to anoint a new king for Israel from one of Jesse’s sons? Samuel met seven of Jesse’s sons. They were big, tall and handsome. “Surely this one would be God’s chosen one!” he thought.

But God said no. “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)


Finally all seven sons passed Samuel, and each time God said, no. Finally, Samuel found out that Jesse had a youngest son who was taking care of the sheep. He was a young boy, not important enough for the father to bring to meet the prophet.

Samuel asked for him. And God said, “Yes, this is the one I chose.”

David was anointed by Samuel. He went on to defeat Goliath. And he later became the next king of Israel.

When God chooses you, He will use you in great and wonderful ways so that we can bring glory to Him.

We are all God’s chosen people. And we are His princes and princesses. “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)


But, but, but … I’m still little old me! I can’t do it on my own!

You can’t. But Jesus can.

On the Cross, Jesus took all our weaknesses, so that we can have His strength. He took all our faults and failings, so that we can have His victory.

When we believe in Jesus, we receive all that He has for us. His Holy Spirit lives in us and gives us all His power and authority — He is our Sifu! He was the one who put in you the skills, talents, intelligent and gifts in you to help you do what you want to do.

When we trust in Jesus’ strengths, we can rely on Him to raise us up and shine in and through us, His chosen ones.

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Phil 4:13)


God sees you — even if you are a nobody.

God chose you — so He can do great things through you.

Jesus is our strength — we can do all things through Him.



Get into small groups. Ask the children to share what their dreams are, and ask Jesus to help them accomplish these.

Week 1: Finding Nemo: Jesus Found Me



Introduce 4 actions based on underwater creatures or plants:

Wave hands in the air like seaweed
Wave hands down below like tentacles
Jump and open hands and legs wide like a star shape
Snap hands together in front like a shark’s jaw (with sound effects)

Aim of game: Teacher to call out and act out the various actions and kids to follow. Go faster and faster as the game progresses.

Variation: Tell the kids they have to do the action of what you say, but not follow the actions of what you do. E.g. you may call out SHARK, while doing the JELLYFISH action, but the kids should do the SHARK action.



Nemo is a fish with tiny right fin, which limits his swimming ability. His father, Marlin, is very protective over him.

One day, Nemo was unhappy about how overprotective his father way. He disobeys his father and sneaks away from the reef towards a boat, resulting in him being captured by scuba divers and taken to Sydney, Australia.

This story is about how Nemo’s father travels the oceans, searching for him, battling sharks and jellyfish, rode turtles and sea gulls.


What did Nemo do?

What did his father do to Nemo after all?


Everybody makes mistakes and messes up in life

Sometime in life, we will mess up and make mistakes, like Nemo

Nemo didn’t want to listen to his father. He was trying to get approval and acceptance from outside (friends). He got lost and trapped in the aquarium.

In the same way, all of us have messed up. We have sinned. We chose not to obey God. We tried to do things our own way.

Just like Nemo, we got lost. We got trapped and imprisoned by sin.

Jesus came to seek and save us

Even though Nemo disobeyed his father and got into this whole mess, the father, Marlin, still loved and cared for him. He went all the way out to look for his beloved son.

Remember Psalm 23? We learnt that Jesus is the Good Shepherd. And the Good Shepherd went to search for the one lost lamb. We were the lost lamb. And Jesus came to rescue us. (optional:

In the same way, Jesus left His heavenly glory to come to earth as a baby born in a manger. He left His place on the throne to take our place on the cross. He died as a prisoner and sinner, in between two criminals, so that we can become a child of God.

Jesus didn’t wait until we were good before He came to rescue us. The Bible tells us that “… God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) He came because He loved us, unconditionally, unreservedly.


Always remember that you are Daddy God’s beloved child through Jesus Christ.

No matter what you have done, no matter how bad you are, He will always, always love you.

And when we make mistakes, when we have disobeyed or gone our own way, remember that we don’t have to hide from Him or be afraid — our Father is always waiting for us, and we can always run back to Him.



Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost."
