The Critters love to worship God in the peaceful meadow of the Kid Cave Forest. Cami Cub is leading the Bible class today. Joshua Jackrabbit will say a prayer. Emmi Squirrel is learning something new that will help her have a wonderful week. Today is Liam Leapfrog's favorite day. Today, he will be quiet and have a restful escape from his busy life in the pond. Gramma's Critters love this beautiful world God created. They are learning about the Kingdom of God.
Our day of rest is a blessing from God. He has made even better plans for us when we come into the Heavenly Kingdom. But He wants us to enjoy His blessings here on earth. If we talk and listen to God on our day of rest, He will teach us about His Great Love. We are blessed when we worship Him and learn about Jesus.
You are reading this lesson because you want to learn more about Jesus. You love God and want to do what He says. He says you need a day of rest! God wants to bless you with a restful day. You need a day when you can think about Him. He will super charge your engine, if you will let Him. Praising God, remembering the great love He has for you, will get you give you steam for another week. Just like the "Little Engine that could." He wants you to have a restful escape from the pressures of a busy week.
We normally think that we have five workdays and two play days. That was not exactly what God had in mind. He said we should work for six days of the week and use the seventh day to rest. He also said to keep the seventh day, the Sabbath Day, Holy. That is why Christians use Sunday for worshiping God and resting. Jesus arose from the dead on a Sunday. He brought us New Life on a Sunday. It is for our own good God commands us to rest on this day. He knows that we need to stop and think about Him.
The Beatitudes - Blessed Are You!
"Then the King will speak to those on his right.
He will say, 'My Father has blessed you.
Come and take what is yours. It is the kingdom
prepared for you since the world was created..."
God wants us to be ready for His Kingdom. Jesus is the King of kings. He will show us the place He has made for us. When we study the Bible we learn to know God. Jesus made a way for us to be with God forever. We are already blessed by God.
