Children’s Sunday Sermon
August 7, 2011
Good morning boys and girls. Did you know that the teeny, tiny little chip in your computer is made up of something called silicon? Did you know that silicon is nothing more than ordinary sand that you find on the beach or in a sandbox? Now I’m not talking about a potato chip. No, think of this chip as the “brain” inside of a computer. And that brain which can figure millions of things every second is smaller than the nail on your little finger. Wow, that sounds like a miracle, doesn’t it boys and girls? And every time you turn on the switch the computer’s screen comes to life and up pops a game, or music or the other wonderful program that you may have used on computers at school or maybe even at home. And even though you don’t know exactly how something made out of sand can do all of the miraculous things that it does, each time you hit the button to turn on your computer you expect it to work. Each time you hit the switch you have faith that it will turn on!

Boys and girls there are many stories in our Bibles about the miracles that Jesus performed during His lifetime. He gave sight to a blind man. He turned water into wine. He cured a man that was crippled. He even raised a man named Lazarus from the dead. And believe it or not, Jesus is here for us today to work miracles in our everyday lives. That’s right , all we need do is to open our hearts to Jesus’ teaching and all things will be possible. We need to have faith that each time we turn to Him He will be more reliable than that computer. We need to have faith that He is always ready to teach us the Lessons that no computer in the world ever can — and that is to give us the power and the strength and the desire to care deeply about our sisters and brothers everywhere. Jesus wants us to switch the power of love to the on position and keep it there!

Good morning boys and girls. Have you ever heard someone say, “You can be anything, or you can do anything as long as you put you mind to it?” What does this mean? It means as long as you set a goal for yourself and keep your mind focused on that goal you can accomplish just about anything! Awesome! Maybe some of you already know what you would like to be when you grow up. Can I see a show of hands for those who would like to be a doctor? How about a lawyer . . . a police officer or firefighter? How about a carpenter, like Jesus was as a young man. Well guess what boys and girls? Many of you will realize your dreams, but only if you put your mind to it. Only if you study hard and follow your plan. In a similar way Jesus is asking you to set your heart to to a certain goal. Jesus has a plan for you that you can find right here in your Holy Bible. If you put your heart to His command to Love one another, He has promised that you can accomplish your goal of being close to God here on earth. If you put your heart into His instruction to share with those who have less than you then you can accomplish your goal to be a faithful follower of Jesus. If you put your heart into all of the things that He has asked of you then you can have the happiness in life that comes only when you accept Jesus’ offer to give you peace of soul.

Boys and girls it is true that you can accomplish many goals in life if you work hard and put your mind to it. But more important, you can become the person Jesus want you to be if you will only put your heart to it! Awesome!

Good morning boys and girls. Will everyone who is happy please raise your hand. Very good, that is most of you. And to anyone who is not feeling happy today just remember, things will get better, I promise. Exactly what makes us happy, boys and girls? Let’s name some things. Spending time playing with your friends. That’s a good one. How about the last day of school before summer vacation? I know that makes all of you happy. Or maybe Christmas, or your birthday? Yes those are all things that should make us happy. Maybe it is a vacation at the beach or camping? Those are all wonderful parts of life, aren’t they boys and girls?

Now let’s name some others. How about sharing your things with a friend who has less than you? How about spending time with someone who is sick or lonely? What about giving a gift rather than receiving one? How about giving your time to help someone who needs you? How about really listening to Jesus’ command to love one another? Yes boys and girls, all of those other things may make you happy today. But if you really want to live the happy life that God has planned for you then you must do those things that Jesus has asked of you in our greatest recipe book ever for living — our Holy Bible. And when you do, you’ll find true happiness!

Good morning boys and girls. I heard the good news! “Good news,” you ask? “What good news?” The good news that it is back to school time! I know, I know. A lot of you don’t think that’s such great news but summer vacation is (or almost) over and it’s time to get back to learning!

Boys and girls now I have some really “Good News” for you — no joking! The “Good News” is right here in our Holy Bibles. You see the first four sections of the New Testament in our Holy Bibles include the Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They tell the story of Jesus and explain how important His message is. These four books are known as the “Gospels.” Did you know that “Gospel” means “Good News”? What is this “Good News” boys and girls? Well it is the good news that we talk about week after week right here in our classroom. The Good News is that each of us can have eternal life – that is each of us can be with God right here on earth when we follow the examples of Jesus. And Jesus died on the cross for us so we can have eternal life with God. That is the good news.

So how can we show that we are loyal followers of Jesus and that we have heard the good news? That’s right! By caring, and sharing and listening and doing all of the other things that we have learned in our Bibles – especially in the Gospels!
