a) Review

At the end of the Water Series remember we learnt that sin was ugly slimy and takes all our energy away from God. Sin hides our inner beauty and separate us from God.

When a caterpillar is turned into a butterfly (Metamorphasis) it sheds it's outer hard shell, the Chrysalist, and out comes a beautiful delicate colorful butterfly that is pretty and playful, nothing like a catterpillar!

FIVE STEPS TO KNOWING GOD'S WORD
First, give children a piece of paper, large enough for them to be able to trace around their hand. Have the children trace around their hand.

Have the children write the corresponding words:

Hear, Read, Study, Remember and Meditate on the fingers.

After they are finished with the hand, have a volunteer read each of the verses shown below. Explaining why we are putting each instruction on each finger.

On the other side of the hand, write the verse references. When finished, suggest the children keep this in their Bibles to use as a bookmark and a reminder to do all five steps to understand the Bible fully and to allow the Word of God to richly fill their lives.

HEAR (The little finger is the only finger you can fit in your ear! Demonstrate)
Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.

READ (The thumb is used to turn a page when you are reading, demonstrate)
Revelation 1:3a Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy.

STUDY (Teachers points her finger and tells you ‘Study’ demonstrate)
Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined (studied) the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

REMEMBER (The tallest finger reminds us of our pledge to God that we will hide His Word in our heart, we will memorize it and remember)
Psalm 119:11 I have hidden (memorized) your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

MEDITATE (The ring fingers reminds us that if we love God we want to meditate on His ways)
Psalm 119:15 I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.

When you hear God’ Word, read the Bible, study and get to know God, memorize and meditate on the Word, the Bible, you discover who God is and how He wants you to live.

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22 (NIV)

It isn't enough to read and study the Bible. We must put its teachings to work in our daily life.

The Bible is like a cookbook. The Bible has God's recipe for becoming a Christian and living a life that is pleasing to Him. A lot of people read the Bible every day. Many of them even go to Sunday School and study the Bible. But it isn't enough just to read the recipe. Reading the Bible won't make you a Christian any more than reading a cookbook will make you a cook. We must follow the recipe in our daily life.

6. APPLICATION/ENCOUNTERING GOD:

CLOSING PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father we thank you for your Word, that all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching us, for sometimes rebuking us correcting and training us in righteousness. We want to hear the Word because faith comes from hearing the message. Help us to set aside time to read your Word and study and examine the Scriptures every day. We want to hide your word in our hearts so that I might not sin against you as we consider your ways and walk in them. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
