Motion :: Week of September 2

1708_SMP_Theme

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: You respect God when you respect the people He’s put in charge.
Bible Story: David Spares Saul | 1 Samuel 24

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

This week we headed to 1 Samuel 24 and found David running away from King Saul. Yet, when David had a clean shot at taking out Saul, he decided to respect the position God gave King Saul. David took the high-road and let God take care of the situation between them.

Motion :: Drum Line :: Week 5 (Week of September 2) from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

You respect God when you respect the people He’s put in charge. We can’t only respect people in charge because they have earned our respect. We should show them respect because God made them and God gave them their authority.

The Bring It! Challenge
We want kids to Bring It! to church. The Bring It! Challenge encourages Motion kids to bring themselves, their Bible, and scripture they’ve learned to Motion. Not only can kids be rewarded for bringing it, but the Bring It! Challenge is a fun way to grow and learn more about God and how He wants us to live.

  • FINDING 1 Peter 2:17a in their Bible.

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: You respect God when you respect your parents.
Bible Story: Children Honor Your Parents | Ephesians 6:1-3, Deuteronomy 5:16

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

InEphesians6:1-3, Paul writes about God’s clear instruction to honor our parents. But he wasn’t the first one in the Bible to say this. Moses said this way back in Deuteronomy 5:16 when God’s people were entering the promised land. Honoring one’s parents is foundational to showing respect to God.

Motion :: Drum Line :: Week 4 (Week of August 26) from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

You respect God when you respect your parents. Showing respect to parents can be difficult, but it is something God wants us to do. Since God put us in our families, we pray that our kids will start to understand how respecting their parents is related to how they can show respect to God. And He can help us respect them even when it’s difficult.

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: You respect God when you respect the people God made.
Bible Story: Don’t Show Favoritism Principle | James 2:1-4, 8-9

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

In James 2:1-4, 8-9, we discover that people in the early church struggled with how to resect people who were different from them. James reminds us that it doesn’t matter what we look like on the outside. It’s what’s on the inside that shapes our respect for others.

You respect God when you respect the people God made. All people are created in God’s image and deserve our respect not because of what they’ve done or have but because of who they are.

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: Show respect to God because He’s in charge of everything.
Bible Story: Faith of the Roman Commander | Matthew 8:5-13

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

 This week we read Matthew 8:5-13 where we find a Roman Commander. The commander was in charge of his men, who did whatever he told them to do. Yet, when his servant became seriously ill, he realized that he wasn’t in charge anymore. He had no power over his servant’s health. He respected that Jesus had authority to heal his servant and had faith He could do it. Jesus honored the centurion’s faith and heals the servant.

Show respect to God because He’s in charge of everything. Our respect begins and ends with how we respond to the all-powerful creator of the universe. Our respect for others flows from how we understand God’s power over the world.

Bible Story: How to Respect | 1 Peter 2:17

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

 This week we dug into God’s Word to learn what respect is and what it means to show respect.
