Good morning girls and boys! Today I want to talk about a word we read in our Bibles. The word is SALVATION.

If you went to the pool or to the beach this summer you probably noticed there were some lifeguards there. If a boy or girl gets into some trouble in the water, the lifeguard is right there to help save them. And isn’t it nice to know that whenever you are out swimming the lifeguards are right there ready to save you? You are not alone.

What if there is a fire at a building you are in. As soon as you smell smoke you would call 911 and before you know it the fire engines come racing in with sirens blaring to save the building and the people in it. And isn’t nice to know that the firemen and women are always right there, just a phone call away, ready to save you? You are not alone.

What if you need some kind of help in your home? Maybe all you need is some help with your homework? Isn’t it nice to know that your mother or father are there to help you with your studies and to help save you from getting a bad grade. You are not alone.

Boys and girls it is the same with Jesus, who offers all of His followers salvation. Jesus is always right there by your side. With Jesus you are never alone.The salvation, the saving that Jesus has for us is to forgive of us of our sins. And just like the help we ask from our lifeguards, or rescue workers and our parents, the salvation Jesus has for us is ready and waiting for us. All we have to do is ask! Remember, you are not alone!

Good morning girls and boys! There was a popular show on television a few years ago that you may have heard about called “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” That’s kind of a dumb question, don’t you think? The object of the game was to answer a question correctly and then move up to next level to a harder one. If the player made it all the way to the final question and got it right, he or she would win one million dollars! Wow!
The way it worked was during the show, the host would ask the player a question and then give a choice of four different answers.The player would look at the four answers and pick one. And each time the player picked their choice, the host would ask, “is that your final answer.”

Today we read in our Bibles about some people called Sadducees who asked Jesus a question about life after death. The Sadducees question didn’t make sense because they were trying to compare life on earth with life in heaven. Jesus said that this could not be done. And Jesus’ Word on this question is the final answer. Because life in heaven is a mystery, none of us on earth know exactly what heaven will be like. But we do know that it will be great beyond our wildest dreams . . . we do know that it will be more beautiful and joyful than we could ever imagine. And we know this, because Jesus has told us. We read in our Bibles that He said, “You will have treasure in heaven.” And for now, that’s all we really need to know about the mystery of heaven. That’s Jesus’ final answer.

Good morning girls and boys! We read in today’s Lesson that Jesus tells His followers that there will be tough times ahead. He warns that the time is coming when their beautiful Temple will be destroyed. He tells them of coming wars and earthquakes. Then He tells them that He will help them to deal with the tough times that lie ahead. He says, “I will give you the wisdom to deal with these tough times.”

Boys and girls it was only a few years ago that you were all in kindergarten. I know, I know it seems like a long time ago. You learned a lot that first year in school, didn’t you, boys and girls? Did you know that several years ago there was a popular book called, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten?” That is where we first heard about the wisdom of sharing things with our playmates. The book says that is where we are first taught to be fair with others. That is where we learned not to hit other people and to be sorry if we have hurt somebody. That is where we were taught not to take things that aren’t ours. That is where we were first told to “hold hands and stick together.”

Think about what a better world it would be if people would only remember to do the things that we learned in kindergarten! That would be living wisely. And Jesus has given us the instructions right here in our Bibles to live wisely. What are some of the things that are expected of us as loyal followers of Jesus to live wisely? That’s right. Wise living is helping others who need us. Wise living is sharing with those who have less than you. Wise living is to listening to others with your heart. And remember, the Source of this Wisdom boys and girls is God Himself!

Children’s Sunday Sermon

Good morning girls and boys! Today I want us to talk about two words: King and Kingdom. What do these words mean? A King is a ruler and a Kingdom includes the land and the people that the King rules over. There were many different kinds of rulers over the centuries— some bad and some good.

Because we are Christians—followers of Christ—we are ruled by a King. We are ruled by the greatest King there ever was. We are ruled by the King of Kings. Jesus was the King of Kings, sent here on earth to tell us that God is with us to rule over every area of our lives. And His Kingdom includes every one of His children here on earth. His Kingdom includes each follower of His, who has been asked to do the good work of God here on earth. And that’s why I can tell you boys and girls that the Kingdom of God is the one true Kingdom that we all have a place in.

As members of the Kingdom of God, as people ruled by the King of Kings, what are the things that are expected of us as good and true citizens? Jesus has given us instructions in the Bible on exactly how to behave. He tells us exactly what to do:
to be kind to other members of the Kingdom;
to help others in the Kingdom who need you;
to listen to others in the Kingdom with your heart;
to give to others in the Kingdom who have less;
to love all the others in the Kingdom, even when it isn’t easy to.

These are just a few of the things that are expected of us citizens of God’s Kingdom.

Boys and girls, throughout history there have been many earthly Kings. Some have ruled over millions of people in their Kingdoms. Some were good—many were bad. But there is only one King of Kings who teaches us about a different kind of Kingdom. And that Kingdom is not ruled with force or fear. No, instead it is ruled by the Love of God.
