If you were building a house, would you rather build it on the sand or on rock? Why?
What would happen if you built your house on the rock? How about on the sand?
What is the ‘rock’ that Jesus says our lives are to be built upon? (v. 24)
How does the rock of God’s Word give our lives a firm foundation?
What would it look like if our lives were built on God’s Word (list a few ideas)?
What does Jesus say will happen if we don’t build our lives on His Word and we choose to live our own way? (vv. 26-27)
Fill in the blanks from the video: When I live by God’s way I am _________. When I live by my own way I am __________.
God’s way is wiser than our way. You can ask God to help you be wise and to learn God’s way! When we ask God to help us live His way, we first need to;
A_________ that you have done wrong and ask God to forgive you for disobeying Him.
B_______ that God sent Jesus to take the punishment for your sin. Trust that you are forgiven because Jesus made you right with God
C________ to spend your whole life depending on God’s power to help you say no to sin. Rely on God to help you tell others that God is your leader and the most important person in your life.
Activity: Draw a picture with 2 houses in it: One built on the rock and one built on the sand. Then write this week’s memory verse at the top of the page and hang it in your house as a reminder to build your life on the rock of God’s Word!
