Have you ever played PAC-MAN? The best part of that game is eating the large power pellets. Pac-Man immediately powers up, and then you can do anything. The bad guys can’t get you! You can eat them and earn bonus points doing it! It’s awesome!
Feeling like we can do anything is a pretty great feeling. We may not have power pellets lying around that we can eat to power up, but we do have another power source—a real power source that gives us the power to do everything God wants us to do. His name is Jesus. And,He is AMAZING!
We are going to Power Up through the next two months with the hope of creating a super fun and engaging experience for preschoolers to learn about the fruit of the spirit—what happens when we are connected to Jesus, the real power source.
Our Bible Stories for week one of Power Up were 1 CORINTHIANS; JOHN 3:16; JOHN 13:34 –
When Jesus is your friend, He gives you the power to love others the way He loves you.
SAY THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF THE STORY:
Who gives you the power to do everything?
Jesus gives me the power to do everything.
DO THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF THE STORY:
When you go into your child’s room this month, say, “Good morning! Where’s my [child’s name]? There he/she is! I love my [child’s name] SO much!” Scoop your child in your arms and give him/her a long hug as you rock him/her.
“I can do everything by the power of Christ.”
Philippians 4:13, NIrV
BASIC TRUTH: JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
