This Quarter Chip Prins is leading the Junior High Sunday School Class through a study called Knowing The God Who Is. Included in this study are weekly devotional helps. I’ll post these the week leading up to Sunday School. Please encourage your son or daughter to work through these, even better work through these with your son or daughter.
Q. How do believers demonstrate their love for God?
A. Believers respond to God’s love by trusting him and obeying his commands.
Read each passage from Deuteronomy below. Then choose one verse from each to write out. Include a short response of how you are applying or will apply it to your life.
Write a short scene about a teenager who’s obeying and/or disobeying God’s commandments. Which commandments did your story include? Bring it to Sunday School next week to share. Below is an example:
Dave has been grounded for a month because he took the car for a drive with friends without permission from his parents. Next Friday will be the first night he isn’t grounded, and he has plans to go out and celebrate with his friends. But he is scheduled to work. So Dave decided to call in sick and go out with his friends instead. And since he was short on money, he took some out of his sister’s purse without asking. His sister was upset but she didn’t tell on her brother. She did ask him to pay her back. (Commandments 5, 8, 9, 10)
