Announcing ….Second Give- Away

God is good. To celebrate our glorious riches in Jesus I am offering another set of worksheets for all of the lessons here on Aunties Bible Lessons. These will be printed in English on white cardstock for durability. If you teach in another language , you are still eligible….I will include “white-out” with your set if needed!!!

Here is how you can qualify for consideration for this set.  You must be currently teaching kids the Bible and have some genuine  need for a set. If you work under the  authority of a children’s director or pastor…  you would need to get my materials approved prior to your request. (You should also have a way to make copies ). Write me a letter/email and include a photo if you can at bibleauntie@gmail.com. Deadline will be August 31,2015. Tell me about your class/ministry and why you need a set. I will choose a winner and post the winning letter. God Bless, Bible Auntie

Empty Tomb Worksheet*Print the scene on white cardstock but the box can be a contrasting color – tan, brown or grey.  To make the box you will need 2 pieces of card stock.  Measure 2 1/4 inches in on all sides and fold as shown below…

Robes of Righteousnessl

“And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”           Rev. 19:8

Some of the last words of our Savior in the New Testament are ” And, behold, I come quickly: and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” ( Rev. 22:12) You might want to review some of these rewards with your students and make this project as a reminder.

The Bible has a lot to say about rewards. Of course our best and exceeding great reward is God, Himself ! (Gen. 15:1) When contemplating eternal rewards, please keep in mind that ” …it is written (Is. 64:4) ‘Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him’.” 1 Corinthians 2:9   It would be pointless to try and describe our rewards so just a couple are listed. Most importantly, rewards are for something you do!  The spiritually slothful and unprepared suffer loss in eternity. ” Each one’s work will become clear…because it will be revealed by fire…if anyone’s work…endures, he will receive a reward.  If anyone’s  work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved…” 1 Corinthians 3:13-15

Eph. 6:8 “… Whatsoever good thing any man does, the same shall he receive of the Lord.”

1Cor.3:8 “… Every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.”

The good deed can be something as simple as a cup of cold water given to a disciple of Christ as stated in Mark 9:41 or something challenging …(Luke 6:35) ” Love your enemies and do good and lend, hoping for nothing again, and your reward shall be great.”

Crowns ( Stephanos)  are promised to those temparate in all things (1st Cor. 9:25), to those who love Christ’s appearing (2 Tim. 4:8), for those who endure temptation (James 1:12) and a crown of Glory mentioned in 1Peter 5:4.  Lastly, we read in Revelation of rewards to the overcomer…those who prevail and get the victory. They will eat of the tree of life (2:7) receive a new name (2:17) have authority (2:26) robes of righteousness (3:5) and sit with Jesus on His throne (3:21)

We want to be like the faithful servant that is watching intently for our Lord’s return. This one is served by Jesus according to His words in Luke 12.  We also want to heed the warning of  Rev. 3:11….

“Behold I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.”

This project requires a certain level of dexterity and the ability to follow directions…probably suited to older pupils.

You would need to print a pattern in card stock for each and procure coffee filters to make the robe. Complete instructions  with photos will be posted on my sister blog…”kids bible.wordpress.com”

Glory to God in the Highest

"Glory to God in the highest..."

“Glory to God in the highest…”

Baby Jesus

Birth of Christ foretold

Birth of messiahJewel's

Wisemen bring gifts

Several posts from the past for you to consider as we celebrate the Messiah’s birth…the manger for Baby Jesus is a little cereal box with craft sticks glued on. The instructions for the Angels can be found in the monthly archives of November 2012. All of the other instructions can be found in the August 2011 monthly archive which happens to be very extensive…be prepared to scroll quite awhile.

Marah…The Waters of Bitterness

…I will bring you unto the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…” Exodus 6:8

Marah...The Waters of Bitterness

Marah…The Waters of Bitterness

Welcome to the blog which adds another important story in our series of the great lawgiver, Moses.  (To see the rest of the stories/worksheets offered please view the Table of Contents for both Old and New Testaments…Jan. 6th, 2014 post)  After the great deliverance from the Egyptian army, the Children of Israel had a three day march and came to the Wilderness of Shur…remember that Hagar had been found by the Angel of the LORD by a spring on the way to Shur? Would the people recall their God’s loving care from the past few weeks when their water, which they had packed for their Exodus , had run out?  We read that when they came to Marah, the waters were bitter and they could not drink them…”And the people complained against Moses, saying,’What shall we drink?’ So he (Moses) cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree.  When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet.”

I think this is a great story for kids because we know that life has a tendency to throw us curveballs…bitter circumstances where we are all tempted to complain that  “this is not fair… or…God, you must not love me!” Children are watching the adults in their lives so see how they respond to these “curveballs”.  They will take these experiences into consideration when contemplating their own personal faith-walks.  Let it not be said that we are “complaining children”  who occasionally worship…instead of “worshipful children” who occasionally complain! Please be prepared to spend some time defining bitter/bitterness.

Marah worksheet

Marah worksheet

Before this page gets colored, make sure the palm branches get colored in first. (FYI…I used colored pens for this)  As I have mentioned in previous lessons, colored chalk makes coloring large spaces such sky or backgrounds a snap and it is cheap…I recommend Crayola brand.  Just a reminder…crayon will not color over chalk and vice-versa.  Choose a Bible memory verse that demonstrates the love and provision of God for His children.  Here are a few that would be appropriate for this lesson.

“The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble and He knows those that trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7

“Oh how great is Your goodness which You have laid up for those that fear You…” Psalm 31:19

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

“For our light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory…”          2 Corinthians 4:17

.

You will need small branches so each child can glue one  near Moses after the page is colored. (see sample for placement)  For a worksheet that does not have any text see the  printable worksheet at kidsbible.wordpress.com
