(Sunday Service resources)
It’s our third week of exploring how King Jesus is better than other rulers, especially that bloke Xerxes from the book of Esther. This week’s focus is on how welcoming our king is.
It’s important to dream big, so Ross and Naomi start thinking about post-pandemic plans and whether it would be possible to drop in on the queen in London. I’m tipping it’s a bit of a long shot.
Have a look at how Jesus welcomes even the smallest people in his kingdom. Now check out what Esther has to go through approaching her husband King Xerxes (Esther 4:9-11). Jesus is way more welcoming!
Here is a short clip that shows our story today. But it only goes for 47 seconds. Why not spend a little extra time by looking at the bigger story of Jesus. You will find that in the second clip.
Here’s another classic. It’s Colin Buchanan reminding us that Jesus really is the king of everything … the jungle, the sea, the universe … me.
We also previewed a couple of new ones in recent weeks. You want to recap? Here’s “King of Me” from two weeks ago. It reminds me a lot of the Colin song.
It’s really exciting to know that Jesus loves kids. Here is a colouring page of Jesus hanging out with five kids. Not sure what the rabbit is doing there, but it’s kind of cute.
Please share any of your completed crafts or activities on the StAKs Online Facebook page or email Ross and Naomi.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Last Week’s Verse
Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
