18/04/2021 – Roh Kudus Dijanjikan

Bahan Alkitab: Kis 1:1-5

Tanggal: 18/04/2021

Ringkasan:

Ketika anak-anak bermain di pantai atau jalan-jalan di mall, orang tua akan selalu mengingatkan untuk tidak pergi jauh supaya orang tuanya dapat menjaga anaknya dengan baik.
Akan tetapi, tidak selamanya orang tua dapat menjaga/menuntun anaknya. Ada masa-masa di mana orang tua akan berpisah dengan anaknya, misalnya ketika orang tuanya sedang sakit.

Ketika Yesus berbicara dengan murid-muridNya setelah Ia bangkit, Yesus menjanjikan tentang Roh Kudus.
Roh Kudus akan menjaga/menuntun setiap anak Tuhan. Roh Kudus akan memberikan penghiburan di kala sedih, mengajar anak Tuhan untuk mengerti FirmanNya dan menuntun tiap orang untuk mengasihi sesamaNya.
Roh Kudus tidak sama seperti orang tua yang tidak dapat bersama anaknya selamanya. Roh Kudus akan terus menjaga setiap anak Tuhan di manapun berada.

Ringkasan:

Pada waktu Tuhan dan murid-muridNya di Galilea, Tuhan memberikan perintah kepada mereka. Tuhan ingin agar murid-muridNya pergi memberitakan Injil. Berita Injil seharusnya menjadi hal yang membuat orang bersukacita.

Ketika kita mengalami / melihat sesuatu yang membuat kita senang, kita akan secara tidak langsung ingin membagikan sukacita itu kepada orang lain. Itu juga yang seharusnya kita lakukan ketika kita sudah menerima Injil. Sebagai anak-anak Tuhan, kita juga harus ingat bahwa Tuhan menyertai, maka itu kita seharusnya berani dan tidak perlu malu atau takut.

27/03/2021 – God Makes Us More Like Jesus

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 7:16-20

Tanggal: 27/03/2021

Ringkasan:

We would start by teaching the children about fruits where does these fruits come from? point to them that the parent tree will grow fruits of its own kind. i.e. an apple fruit would be found only in apple tree and not in orange tree. Fruits have seeds which can be planted in soil, given sunlight and water, to grow into plants and finally tree which grow the fruit.

We would then proceed to tell them, like plants, in human, children are like their parents in many ways i.e. looks, act and talk. All children in God’s family have the same heavenly father. He has made us to be his own children. God sent holy spirit to help us to trust and obey Jesus. The longer we grow in God’s family, the more we become more and more like Jesus.

Then told them that this week we would be learning from another story told by Jesus to his disciples. Can you find grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Thorn bushes are plants which grow with many stems and have sharp pointed things around them while thistles are flower plants with pointed prickles. The answer would be No. Grapes can only be found from grapevine and fig found from the fig tree.

Jesus continue to teach his students that from a fruit you can know if it comes from a good tree or bad tree. Use an apple as the example: an apple which is sweet, firm and crunchy comes from a good apple tree while an apple that is not sweet and soft come from a bad apple tree. Looking at the fruit tells you what kind of tree it comes from.

Jesus telling us about fruits because he wants us to understand that the way a person talk or behave show if the person belong to God’s family. A person who belongs to God’s family would do what make God happy. A person who does not trust and obey God has the heart that does not love God. He does not belong to God’s family.

State some ways which people who are part of God’s family do:
1) Pray to God to ask for forgiveness for our sins
2) Listen to bible stories and do what Jesus say in the bible
3) Love one another
4) Love our enemies by showing love and forgiving them

What would people think when they hear our words and see our actions?

We can talk and behave as part of God’s family not because we are good or smart but it is only through God’s help. Just like babies who needs food and love from the parents, children in God’s family need the Holy Spirit to help us trust and obey God. And as we grow, we become more and more like Jesus.

Next week, we are celebrating Good Friday which we remembered how Jesus who came to this Earth died so that our sins may be forgiven and we can be part of God’s family. As part of God’s family, we can show our love for Jesus by trusting and obeying his commands such as to tell our friends about Jesus.

May our children in God’s family and become more and more like Jesus.

A wiseman who built his house on the rock

21/03/2021 – Jesus Says, “Obey God’s Word”

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 7:24-27

Tanggal: 21/03/2021

Ringkasan:

This bible story is about a story told by Jesus to his students. When Jesus told a story, Jesus is teaching a special lesson to the students about God and themselves, including us.

In this story Jesus told the story about two men – a wise man and a foolish man. The wise man knows what is right and wrong. He knows that to build a strong house requires solid rock as the foundation so that the house would not move when there is rain and wind. So he dug into the rocks to make the base for his house. Digging deep into rocks is difficult as rocks are hard but the wise man continue to dig knowing it is right.

On the other hand, the foolish man, build his house on a sandy ground as it is easier and faster to build his house.

When heavy rain and strong wind came, the house built on the rock stay firm and strong while the house built on the sandy ground moved and eventually was destroyed.

Jesus said people who listen to Him and obeys His Word is like the wise man who build his house on the rock and those who listen and disobeyed his Word is like the foolish man who build the house on the sand. We are wise not because we are smart but because God gave us the wisdom. God wants us to know what He wants and for us to obey Him. Children may come to Sunday School, listen to the bible story and forget about it tomorrow. We should guide them to listen carefully to the bible story, understand it and act on it in their lives.

For instance, Children have learnt about forgiveness in the last two weeks. If their friends did mean things to them, they feel angry and hurt. Do they continue to feel angry and would like to do mean things to their friends or they can forgive their friends, knowing that God has forgiven our sins. This is not easy but just like building the house on the rock is not easy, we should still continue doing it. We knows that God is with our children and will help them to it.

May through this bible story our Children may learn to trust more in God’s Words and obey them.

14/03/2021 – Jesus Says, “Serve Others”

Bahan Alkitab: Mark 9:33-35; Mark 10:35-45; John 13:1-17

Tanggal: 14/03/2021

Ringkasan:

Lesson Focus:
Jesus shows us how to humbly serve others

Lesson Aim:
Children learn to understand what is serving others
Children learn ways to serve others

Summary:

A lot of time, we want be the more important one, get to be served all the time is awesome. But, Jesus said, “If you want to be great (the important one) in God’s kingdom, you must learn to be the servant all of all”.

Just like us, Jesus’ disciples also wanted to be the more important one in Jesus’ eyes.

These are James and John. One day, James and John came to Jesus and asked “Teacher, can you do something for us?” Jesus answered, “What do you want me to do for you?” James and John then said, “Could you let us sit on your right and one of us on your left in God’s kingdom?

James and John wanted to have the best place next to Jesus. They wanted to be greater than the other disciples. When the rest of disciples heard about it, they became unhappy with James and John; as they also wanted to get the special seat beside Jesus.

So, Jesus called the 12 and talked to them that “Whoever wants to be great in God’s kingdom must be the servant of all”. For even He himself came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life for us.” He is the King of kings and He is God, but He is willing to come to earth and be a suffering servant by dying on the cross. If Jesus, our Lord, serves others; we, His followers, must also serve others just like Him.

Another time, Jesus also showed how He served His disciples.

At that time where Jesus and His disciples lived, it was a norm for the people to wash their feet before entering a house, as the road outside was very dusty. This feet washing was normally done by a servant of the house.

One time Jesus and His disciples got ready to celebrate the Passover feast. Jesus and His disciples were going to have a very special meal for the feast at one place. They walked there and after some time they finally arrived at the prepared place. They would like to go into the house, but nobody was there to wash their feet. A basin, a towel, and water were there, but no servant was there to wash their feet.

So, Jesus removed his outer clothing and wrapped the towel around his waist. He then poured water into the basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

The disciples were surprised that their Lord would do the job of a servant. One of them even refused to be washed by Jesus, but Jesus insisted to wash his feet. After Jesus had finished washing, He asked His disciples, “Do you understand what I have done for you?” And then He said, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you”.

This does not mean that His disciples must be a servant who washes feet at the entrance of the door; but Jesus wants His disciples to serve others wherever they go.

Because we are the followers of Jesus, we must also do the same thing. We all must learn to serve others, just as shown by Jesus. Children will see some pictures that are showing act of serving in the class.

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 18:21-35

Tanggal: 07/03/2021

Ringkasan:

Lesson Focus:
Since God forgives us, we must forgive one another.

Lesson Aim:
Children learn what it means to forgive others. To forgive means to give our love to others who hurt us.
Children learn that forgiveness is not cheap. There is a price that must be paid to forgive others.
Children learn to forgive others.

Summary:

Today’s bible story is about the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant. There are three characters in this story: a King, Servant A, and Servant B. Servant A borrowed a lot lot of money from the King (the sum of debt ~ 2000 years of work); while Servant B borrowed some money from Servant A (the sum of debt ~ 3 months of work).

One day the King summoned Servant A and asked him to pay back all the money that he owed. Since servant A could not pay; the King ordered him to be sold together with his wife, children, and all that he has to pay his debts. So, the servant fell on his knees and said, “Have patience with me. Wait a little bit more and I will pay everything.” The King knows that the servant could not possibly pay back his debts, even if the servant works very hard. So, out of pity, the King released him and forgave all his debts. The King paid it all.

When Servant A walked out, he met Servant B who was in debt to him. Servant A began to choke him and asked him to pay all his debts. Servant B fell on his knees and said, “Have patience with me. I will pay you.” But Servant A refused and put him in prison until he could pay back his debts. Servant A already forgot that he was just forgiven by the King.

Then the King heard what happened to Servant A and B. The King summoned Servant A and said, “You wicked servant! I have forgiven all your debts. Should you also forgive your fellow servant?” In anger, the King sent Servant A to prison until he could pay all his debts.

This story teaches us that we must learn to forgive others, just as God has forgiven us. Just like Servant A, we have unpayable debt to God since our debt costs Jesus’ life; but God choose to forgive us. So, we must learn to forgive other people who hurt us.

28/02/2021 – Jesus Says,” Ask God to forgive you.”

Bahan Alkitab: Luk 11:4 ; 15: 11-24

Tanggal: 28/02/2021

Ringkasan:

We all do wrong things; sometimes we aren’t kind to our parents, we make fun of our friends, we lie to others, etc. These are sins. It does make God sad when we sin against God. But God never stops loving us, his children and He is willing to forgive us when we come to Him and ask for his forgiveness.

Jesus wanted the Pharisees to see that God loves and welcomes those who ask Him to forgive them. So Jesus told a story, it was about the lost son. There was a man who had two sons. One day, the younger son came to his father and said, Father “ Give me my share of the family money.” The father wanted his younger son to stay, his father loved him. But his son just wants to leave. He did what the son asked.

He went far away from home and used all his money on wild living. When the money’s all spent he finds himself with no friends and nowhere to go. He went to one place and another place asking for food but nobody gave him food. It forced him to find the only job he could – feeding pigs.

Finally, he began to think. He realised all his wrong doings all these times. He said, “ The people who worked for my father have more than enough food.But here i am starving to death! I will go back to my father. He knew that he had been wrong to ask his father for the inheritance. And he knew he didn’t deserve to be forgiven. So the younger son cannot wait to come home to his father.

The father was so happy to see his son that he came to his son, he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and gave him a big hug and a kiss. The younger son cried and said “ Father, I am sorry for what I have done. I have sinned against God and against you.” But the father said, “ I forgive you son.” He loved his child and was glad to welcome his return home. He did not make the son a servant, as the son felt he deserved. Instead, he celebrated and accepted him back as a son.

The biggest sins that the younger son did was he left his father, he chose money for his own father, and he wanted to be separated from his father. The younger son is like us, who do sins and sometimes we choose to be separated from our God. But when we repent and turn back to him. He forgives us completely because of His unconditional love.

Lesson summary:
1. The father’s patience, acceptance, and forgiveness present a picture of our God. No matter what, He always
meets us with open arms.
2. God wants us to repent, turn away from our sin and ask forgiveness through Jesus. Jesus was the reason our
sins were forgiven, Jesus sacrificed himself to take away our sins. He forgives all our sins and He cleans our
heart.
3. When we realise our mistakes and ask for forgiveness, God is always ready to forgive us. Because he loves us,
and God is so merciful that he forgives us.

21/02/2021 – Jesus says, love your enemies

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 5: 43-38

Tanggal: 21/02/2021

Ringkasan:

One day Jesus walked up to the mountain side and sat down, he was teaching out on a hillside. We call his lesson that day The Sermon on the Mount. “You have heard that you should love your neighbours and hate your enemies,” Jesus said. “But I say, love your enemies — and pray for those who persecute you.” Jesus was telling his followers to love those peoples who don’t love them. if someone does mean and hateful things to you, pray for them.

It was when we were still God’s enemies that He demonstrated His love for us. Through Jesus (Romans 5:8) God’s love brought salvation to us. God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. When Jesus was on the cross dying, the pharisees and the guards were mocking Jesus. Jesus never did anything wrong, yet there he was on the cross, not for His sins but for all of our sins. He never said anything hateful back. He said, “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Jesus just prayed to his father and asked for them to be forgiven. What an example for us! Jesus the son of God already came and He did it. Jesus is the reason we can be forgiven and he is the reason we can forgive others. Jesus loved those who were crucifying Him. And He loves us. Now we are no longer God’s enemies, we are children of God.

Jesus said that He would give us the Holy Spirit to help us to respond with love not with hate or anger, but we pray and ask God to give us strength and power to forgive others who mean to us. Like how God forgave us. Only when God puts his love in our heart, we can obey God to love our enemies just like the way Jesus taught us.

How to love our enemies?
1. Pray for them. Pray to God to change their heart. Praying changes our hearts too.
2. Forgive them. We asked God to help us to put his kindness, tender hearted, forgiveness in our heart. He will
give us the strength to forgive.
3. Never talk badly or revenge towards them and show kindness, demonstrate God’s love to others, be an
example for others as children of God.
4. Teach them about Jesus that God taught us to love our enemies, even when your enemies don’t love us. Jesus
loved us so much that he sacrificed himself for our sins.

Ringkasan:

Bible truth : God’s children show their love for Him by loving others.
Lesson focus: Jesus tells us to show love for God by loving others.

This week, we’d like to learn another command that Jesus asks us to obey. Love One Another.

God shows His love to us in two ways:
1. By His word – The Bible – He tells us how He loves us written in the Bible.
2. By actions: sending His own Son to die for us (the ultimate/greatest love of God) and how Jesus healed the
sick people or He brought Lazarus back to life.

Long time ago, Jesus’s disciple named John wrote a letter to God’s people, first, second and third John in the Bible. The Holy Spirit guided John so he could write what God wanted His people to know and obey.

John’s letter said:
• Let us love one another, for love comes from God.
• Everyone who loves – has been born of God and knows God.
• Whoever does not love, does not know God – because God is love.
• God showed His love by sending His ONLY SON into the world that we might live through Him (1 John 4 :
7 – 9).
God not only said “I love you” but He showed His love by sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins and be our Savior. Jesus died so God would not have to punish His people for their sins.

God tells us to love one another. In the Ten Commandments, God told His chosen people to love Him wholeheartedly and to love their neighbors as themselves.
In Jesus – teaching, Jesus emphasized these commands in Matthew 22:37-39: to love God best and to love others as much as they love themselves.

Jesus taught His disciples “As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34).

Here are some ways we can obey God’s command to show God’s love to others:
• we can share our food with our friend who forgot his/her lunch.
• we can give offering for the work of the church. Our offerings may help to buy Bibles for a church that
doesn’t have enough; or for churches to build their buildings that are broken; to help missionaries who tell
people about Jesus. Sharing our money is another way to show our love for God and others.

“We love because He first loved us” – 1 John 4:19. The source of our love is God and He has shown His love to us first so that we could show our love to others.

We can ask God’s help to make us willing to love others. When we show our love to others, people will know that we truly belong to God.

Lessons learnt:
• We love because He first loved us – 1 John 4:19.
• God showed His love for us by His word and by sending Jesus to be our Savior.
• The greatest love of God is by sending Jesus to die on the cross to wash away all of our sins.
• God wants us to love HIM best and to love each other as we love ourselves.
• Jesus said “As I have loved you, you must love one another”.
• We can share what we have to others to show that we love them and others will know that we truly belong
to God.
