Term 1 – Week 1
Big Idea – The Israelites rejected God as their king when they demanded a king to rule over them.
1 Samuel 8
- The children will know that Saul is the people’s king, chosen by the people for the people.
- The children will understand that the Israelites demanded a king to rule over them to be like all the other nations.
- The children will appreciate God’s sovereignty over his people, despite their rejection of him as King.
- Belief (Head / Heart) – Sin is the rejection of God as King. All people sin therefore all people reject God’s rule. But God is always sovereign over everything even when people reject him.
- Behaviour (Hands) – God is king, have you rejected him as the Israelites did, or have you submitted it his rule and trust that he knows best?
