Title: Jesus%20grew

Jesus grew
  • In wisdom (knowledge of God world)
  • In Stature
  • In favour with God and man
  • (Luke 252)

When a baby is born what do people ask?
  • ? Boy/Girl
  • ? How much do they weigh
  • ? What is their name
  • ? How is the mum
  • etc

The babys growth is all important
  • Frequent weight checks
  • Periodic developmental checks including growth
    and height checks
  • Also home height checks
  • Encouragement to eat healthy foods
  • Use incentives to get our children to eat
    more/right kinds of foods

Food and water are basic human needs
  • For Physical Growth
  • For providing the body with energy to continue
  • As parents we make every effort to provide our
    children with good wholesome nutritious food of
    the right kind for their age

Jesus grew in stature How else did he grow?
  • in wisdom (knowledge of God and world)
  • in favour with God and man

Learning of Jesus Love and Growing like Jesus
  • Physically children need regular meals of
    nutritious food to grow well
  • Is the same true for their growth to become more
    like Jesus?
  • Who are their main teachers in becoming disciples
    for Jesus?

Sabbath School and Church can only supplement
what you are doing at home
Modern Living means Lots of time Pressures
  • We want our children to grow well and learn
    their lessons at school so
  • Mealtimes are a routine which we cannot skimp on
    for our children
  • (even if we sometimes
  • miss them ourselves!)

Do Time Pressures Squeeze out Time for Jesus in
our family lives?
  • Can we afford for this to happen?
  • Abraham looked for a city with foundations,
    whose builder and maker is God Hebrews 1110
  • We want our children to grow
  • spiritually

For Spiritual Growth we need to seek spiritual
food, and Exercise and stay Close to Jesus each
  • Children learn by example
  • Having our own devotional prayer time
  • Talking about Jesus through the day as we would
    about another family member Deut 64-7
  • Praying to God, with children,
  • through day

Helping our Children to Grow Up with Jesus as
their friend
  • Love the LORD your God with all your heart and
    with all your soul and with all your strength.
  • These commandments that I give you today are to
    be upon your hearts.
  • Impress them on your children.
  • Talk about them when you sit at home and when you
    walk along the road, when you lie down and when
    you get up.

Providing Spiritual Food in our Homes
  • Regular Family Worship times (maybe
    incorporating Sabbath School lesson or following
    other topics)
  • Encourage children to study their Sabbath School
    Lessons daily, by spending time going over it
    with them and discussing how to apply the
    principles learnt

Studying the Sabbath School Lesson together
Points to consider when preparing to teach
  • Developmental age of children
  • Involving your children
  • Making it fun and enjoyable
  • Knowing your children and their learning styles
  • Making Jesus the focus of the worship
  • Practical ways to apply the lessons learnt

Your child can Grow, by Gods grace faith
comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God
Romans 1017
  • GROW
  • In wisdom
  • In Stature
  • In favour with God and man
