God sent His one and only Son, Jesus, into the world because of His deep love. Jesus extended that love to the people He hung out with as He traveled and taught.
In this series, kids will be introduced to the love Jesus has for all people, including them.
He wants to be with us every day. He sees each of us for who we are and knows our needs before we even tell Him. Jesus offers love and care like no one else can, and His love is so great that He eventually died on the cross to save us from sin.
There’s a unique feeling that goes through our mind when you hear the word love. God so loved the world He gave His one and only Son. We didn’t have to do anything for it. We don’t deserve it. Yet He loves us and wants to hang with us each and every day.
I don’t know about you, but this season for me has been one where I need to hang out with Jesus. I needed to sit down and be still and hear His voice. I needed to know that He is God, and I needed to submit.
As you prepare for this series, I guarantee you’ll see yourself in one of these stories. Maybe it’s when Jesus calls the disciples, maybe it’s the woman at the well, or maybe it’s when we see Jesus’ love for children.
Maybe it’s Zacchaeus in the tree or Jesus healing the men with leprosy. Perhaps it’s Nicodemus visiting Jesus at night. My hope is that you aren’t always busy, but rather you take the time to be with Jesus and realize He wants you to hang out with Him.
I challenge you to set a daily reminder to be with Jesus. It could be a walk, a quiet devotional time with prayer, or moments of worship. I just know there’s something special when we hang with those who love us.
May your time with Him be blessed so that you might be a blessing to those you serve.
