Know your worth to God…You are wonderful
Children/Youth for participation
*Suggestion ask a child/ youth to recite the following poem*
God wants me to be myself
For He created me this way,
And since God made me who I am,
Myself I’m quite content to stay.
In His eyes I’m good enough –
It matters not what others say;
I need not act as if I’m tough
Or copy other children’s ways.
God doesn’t care if I’m not cool –
If I’m not stronger; thinner;
In His hands I am a tool
To reach out to another sinner.
Though I am still young and small
In Jesus Christ I’m strong and tall;
So when people look at me
May it be God’s own Son they see.
Belinda van Rensburgs
I am beautiful, smart and placed on this earth for a purpose.
God wants us to know we are fearfully and wonderfully made and he created us in his image so we should feel blessed.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Have an adult pray with a child/youth then close with a general prayer.
Have the children sing the welcome song they sing in the children division while greeting all the members of the congregation
We are fearfully made to testify of God’s praises
*Suggestion: Let two children testify about an incident where they had to stand up for Jesus and knowing they are fearfully and wonderfully made, for example, and incident of bullying, etc.
We are fearfully made to sing of God’s Praises
Song by a group of youths
*Ask a dynamic speaker to do a short presentation (10 minutes) with the youths in mind on
“Know your worth to God…You are wonderful”
They should cover:
- Your cost to the Lord…..(He died for your sins)
- The importance of knowing your worth
- You are loved so love yourself…Self Esteem
- You were created to give God glory
God loves us with such an everlasting love, that he formed us in his image and very likeness. He made us in his image even though we all look different and possess unique and distinguishable features. Everything combines beautiful because God did not make any mistakes.
You may not love your ears but know that God wants you to hear the good news of salvation and be reassured that you are loved.
You may not love your eyes but God wanted you to be the most observant of nature around and know that you were created for a purpose.
Do you believe that brothers and sisters?
We all bring different talents and different perspectives but we have a purpose, and we are all necessary for the functioning of this church and this world.
Furthermore, he sent his Son to die for sinners like us. We are worth the life of his only begotten Son. We are not worthless, regardless of our situation, circumstances, or the way we have sinned. He beckons us with love to come to him.
And in another manifestation of his love, he says he has gone to prepare a place for us so we could live with him for all of eternity.
Brothers and sisters, we are worth everything to God.
Sabbath School is now adjourned until next Sabbath.
