November Family Discipleship
“What does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul?” (Deuteronomy 10:12–13)
During the month of November our kids will begin a journey through the book of Acts! We are excited for the chance to align what your kids are learning with what you are learning in the adult services. You will be equipped to have Gospel conversations with your kids about passages from Acts that you have recently studied.
This month we are learning what it means to fear God.
God loves us very much. He is not hiding around the corner to scare us. God is like our shepherd. He takes good care of us. So what does the fear of the Lord mean? We are defining fearing God this way: caring the most about what God thinks . Whenever the Bible talks about fearing the Lord, it is a good thing. So this could be a little confusing! We care about what our friends think and sometimes we even worry about it and let it change the way we behave in some not so good ways. But the most important question we can ask is, “What will God think about this?” or “What would Jesus do in this situation?”
We obey the one we fear the most. Do we fear man or do we fear God? We will see that Peter and John feared God more than man when they healed the lame beggar and then boldly preached the gospel. Then we will see how Annanias and Saphira’s fear of man led to their demise. Lastly, we will see how Stephen feared God more than man and saw the glory of God.
