For Kids: Living Like Jesus | Lectionary 22 (Pentecost 14) | Year A

Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed

Note: Today's lesson is based on Romans 12:9-21 in the Lectionary readings.

Big Idea: When we follow Jesus, we act like Jesus.

Story: "Paul's Letters" | Spark Story Bible, pg. 540

Question (from the story): What do you tell people about Jesus and God?

Lesson Video | We Love Because God Loves Us

Ask: In Paul's letter to the Christians living in the city of Rome, he told them to make sure their love is real. How can you show your love for God and others is real?

Say: Some examples Paul gives are: doing the right thing, being kind to others, praying, and helping people inside and outside the Church.

He also says that when people are mean to us, we shouldn't be mean back to them. What should we do instead?

Paul also tells us that when someone is sad, we can be sad with them. We shouldn't see ourselves as more important than others, but should see others as super important too.

All these things are parts of following Jesus' way of life.

Song for Kids: Every Move I Make

Activity Sheets or Play

After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play out a story that fits with the lesson).

End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.

(If you need more time)

  • Go around the room and ask the children to share something they are thankful for this week.

  • Ask them if there is anything or anyone they would like to pray for this week.

Ending Song: The Lord's Prayer
