Quest :: Week of July 14

Monthly Focus: What is with you wherever you go? (The Bible tells me wherever you go.)
Bible Story: God Loves Me All the Time ● Jeremiah 31:3
Main Point: The Bible tells me God loves me all the time.
Memory Verse: I have hidden your word in my heart.”  Psalm 119:11a, NIV

Not only does the Bible show us which way to go, God’s Word is with us wherever we go. Whether we’re young or old, hiding God’s word in our hearts is so important. It allows us to take life changing truths from the Bible with us literally wherever our bikes and trikes can take us.

In this week’s lesson we learned that God loves us all the time

God’s Word tells us God loves us all the time, no matter what. The Bible is full of great promises like this one for us to remember! 

This week play a game with where you say what time it is and your child does an action that goes with the time. Ex: “It’s time to cook.” Your child pretends to cook. “It’s time to sleep.” Your child pretends to sleep. Talk about how God loves us ALL the time.

MONTHLY FOCUS: God’s Word helps me.
MEMORY VERSE: “I have hidden your word in my heart.” Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: King David Wrote the Psalms | Psalm 119:11

This week we sang a song to remind us God’s Word helps us. Sing the song with your toddler at home!

God’s Word Always Helps Me (to the tune of “Wheels on the Bus”)

God’s Word always helps me,
Oh, yes it does. Yes, it does. Yes, it does.
God’s Word always helps me.
Oh, yes it does.
Everywhere I go.

Repeat a few times, or as long as your toddler is interested. After the activity, say, “You did a wonderful job singing! When we read and learn God’s Word, we hide it in our hearts and it always help us! What helps you?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God’s Word helps me!”

CONFIDENCE: Living like you believe what God says is true.
Series Memory Verse: Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
Main Point: Stay focused on Jesus.
Bible Story: Peter Walks on Water  |  Matthew 14:22-33

God is stronger than anyone and He can do things that would be impossible for you or me. He has proved this throughout history, but nowhere is this more evident than in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Because of what Jesus has done, we can have confidence. And when you put your faith in Jesus, you can live fully alive.

There’s an important story about confidence found in Matthew 14:22-33. Peter and the rest of the disciples were out on the Sea of Galilee when they noticed a figure walking on the surface of the water. When they finally realized that the figure was Jesus, Peter called out and asked Jesus to invite him onto the water. Jesus did. And Peter took a stroll on top of the waves. However, only when Peter is focused on Jesus is he able to stay above water.

Stay focused on Jesus. When we put our confidence in Jesus, we are able to find the courage to make the wise choice in a difficult situation. Jesus may not be asking us to walk on water, but He does have something planned for us. 

This dinner at week, ask: Who distracts you from focusing on Jesus?

God’s Word teaches us to share and can help us take turns!”
