Freedom is a Responsibility (Part 4)
This month the Neuma Kids will be learning all about the Kingdom Culture value, Freedom is a Responsibility. Each week they will come to understand how Jesus set us free from the slavery of sin, learn to honour God with the choices we make, be aware of excuses we make to cover up disobedience and respond as Jesus would, and how to use our freedom to serve others in love.
This week we will be looking at how to use our freedom to serve others in love!
Read 1 Corinthians 10:24 in your Bibles or follow along online.
- What does being selfish mean?
- What is an example of someone acting selfishly?
- What does it mean to serve one another?
- Has there ever been an example where you have put your feelings or interests before someone else’s? What did you do?
- Has there ever been an example where you have put someone’s feelings or interests before your own? What did you do?
- Why is putting other people’s interests before our own so important to Jesus? Can you think of any examples where God put other people’s interests before His own?
- How are you being responsible with the freedom Jesus gave you?
- What can we do to make sure we are using our freedom responsibly?
- Read 1 Corinthians 9:19 and explain why Paul makes himself a slave/servant to everyone? What was his goal?
Prayer is simply talking to God. The Bible says that God hears every single one of our prayers.
Think about the bible passage, What you have learnt?, What is standing out for you? Use these words to talk to God about what you are thinking and how you are feeling.
We have a responsibility with our freedom in Christ. Take a moment to tell God how you are responsible with the freedom that you have in Jesus.
Whether it’s 10 seconds or 10 minutes, gather with your family and spend a moment in prayer.
If you’ve decided to ask Jesus into your life for the first time, we’d love to hear about it! Please let us know.
Parents: if you’d like any further support in discipling your child after this decision please know we’re here to help and would love to provide any support we can.
Submit a photo of you and your family doing church at home. It could be selfie-style as you watch the video on the TV, or perhaps a photo of you with your Bible open to this week’s story. You can be as creative as you like!
Parents: We will not share any photos until we specifically contact you to request so.
