Happy New Year!
In the month of January, we are looking at ways God can help us have SELF CONTROL -- Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
We started the month with a crucial moment from Jesus’ life, found in Luke 4:1-13. After Jesus’ baptism, He went to the wilderness to fast and spend time with God and prepare for ministry. While Jesus was in the wilderness, the Devil tempted Him. Jesus was prepared for this. Even though Jesus was tired and hungry, Jesus used what He knew from Scripture to fend off the temptation. We had lots of fun creating a story wall and retelling the story. Check out our story wall hanging up in the fellowship hall.
Bottom Line: Be ready to do the right thing. When it comes to self-control, it’s important to understand the moments when having self-control might be difficult. It’s also important to have a plan for when those moments might happen. We pray that kids will leave knowing they can trust God to help them show self-control.
This week starts our Bible Memory Challenge again.
Bible Verse: By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life (2 Peter 1:3a NLT).
