As a parent, one of the most important things you can do is instill a love of learning in your child. For born again Christians, this means teaching them the importance of reading the Bible from an early age. The Bible is our source of truth and guidance, and it is essential for growing our relationship with God. Preschoolers and grade schoolers are at a critical point in their spiritual development, and they need to be taught how to use the Bible as a tool for faith. By learning how to read the Bible , children will be better equipped to grow in their relationship with God and stay focused on their faith as they get older.
This past Lord’s Day ( May 15,2022), our Sunday School teacher Vanessa took on the task of introducing the Bible to the preschoolers. They learned the importance of God’s Word. They heard how the Bible is a map that shows us the way to live, and how it helps us to see the difference between good and evil. The children also learned that it is important to hear God’s Word often, so that we can become spiritually wise and grow closer to Him. This is consistent with what Paul wrote to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:15-17
from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work
The grade schoolers on the other hand continued their lesson on the three persons of the Godhead known as the Trinity. The focus of the lesson was on Jesus, who is known as God the Son. The class learned that by sending Jesus, God was able to walk and talk with us just like an ordinary man. However, they also learned that Jesus is no ordinary man because He is God. The class was amazed to learn that Jesus was there from the very beginning, even before the earth was formed. Then He became flesh in order to live with us. This lesson helped the students to better understand who Jesus is ( as part of the Triune God) and why He is so important to us.
