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: Find friends who help you trust Jesus.
Bible Story: Philip and Nathanael | John 1:43-51
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.
In John 1:43–51 John recounts the start of Jesus ministry when He was starting to choose the 12 disciples. One of those disciples was a guy named Philip. Philip was so overwhelmed when he met Jesus that he couldn’t wait to tell others. Philip found his friend Nathanael and invited him to meet Jesus. Turns out that Jesus had big plans for Nathanael, too!
Find friends who help you trust Jesus. We all need people in our life who will help us live fully alive. We want kids to figure out who, in their life, is encouraging them to have faith in Jesus.
This week at bedtime, read John 1:43-51. Pray for each other, that you will find and keep close friends who help you live with confidence as you trust God each day.
