God Is Worthy Of Worship
Based on: John 9:1-41
(It’s not an activity, but just a little background on the story for you, the parent, to read.)
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Psalm 100:1-2
Activity One: Read the intro. Watch the video.
Activity Two: Discuss the story using provided questions as prompts. Prayer.
Activity Three: Respond to the story by doing the activity.
Activity Four: Bless your children
Activity 1: STORY
Introduction:To read the children:
The book of John tells us about when Jesus was on earth and shows us that Jesus is God’s Son. There was a man who was blind when he was born. For all his life he was blind and couldn’t see a thing. But something happened that made him “see” that God is worthy of worship. Let’s find out what a man in the Bible did when Jesus helped him to see.
Watch the video:
Activity 2: DISCUSSION
- How did Jesus heal the man who was blind? (Jesus spat on the ground and made mud, which He put on the man’s eyes. Then Jesus had the man go wash in the Pool of Siloam.)
- What did the Pharisees think about Jesus healing the man? (They were mad because He healed on the Sabbath, the Jewish day of rest.)
- When the man found Jesus and heard who He was, what did he do? (He worshiped Jesus.)
God is worthy of worship! He is good and deserving of respect, praise, and attention. Have your child/children complete these statements to have them think of reasons they should worship God. Write their answers on a whiteboard or piece of paper.
“God can _____.”
“God is _____.”
“God always _____.”
“God gives ______.”
Or they can finish the statement, “God is good and deserving of respect, praise, and attention because…”
Use this prayer time to worship God using the statements they created.
Then, transition into a time of prayer for personal requests.
Activity 3: RESPONSE ACTIVITY #1 Worship Mobile
God is worthy of worship. Worship means we give honor to God. We thank and praise God for who He is and what He does for us. There are lots of ways to worship God. Let’s make worship mobiles that you can use to remember to worship God in different ways throughout the week.
18 inch length of yarn for each child
Distribute supplies. Let the children color the shapes. They can write in the blank shape a way they like to worship God. Then show them how to tape the shapes along a length of yarn to create a mobile.
RESPONSE ACTIVITY #2 Print and Color
Activity 4: CLOSING BLESSING
Lead in a guided prayer:
God, we worship You because You are _________. Going around the circle, let the children finish the sentence. Thank You, God for sending Your Son, Jesus, to help us see Your power. In Jesus’ name, amen.
