LESSON 6 – “WALKING WITH JESUS”
Billy and Tessa were sitting on the swings after school waiting for Susie to arrive. Today she was going to explain how to walk with Jesus even though He is in heaven.
“What do you think Susie meant walking with Jesus?” Tessa asked Billy.
“Beats me. I don’t see how we can walk with Jesus every day when we can’t even see Him,” exclaimed Billy.
“I know,” said Tessa. “I wish she would hurry up and get here. I wonder what is taking her so long.”
“Here she comes now,” Billy said. Tessa looked up and saw Susie running towards them.
“I’m sorry to keep you waiting. I had to talk to one of my teachers about my project,” Susie explained.
“That’s ok,” said Billy as Susie sat down on a swing beside him.
“I can’t wait for you to tell us what the final step is to get to heaven,” Tessa said excitedly.
“Do you remember all the steps so far?” Susie asked them.
(Have the children repeat each step as you say them.)
“Step #1 is Believe Jesus is God and that God is real,” said Billy
“Step #2 is Repent, tell God you are sorry, and ask Him to forgive you,” said Tessa.
“Step #3 is to get Baptize in Jesus’ name,” said Billy.
“Step #4 is to receive the Holy Ghost, a gift from God,” said Tessa.
“That’s right. And step #5 is walking with Jesus every day,” said Susie.
“You told us that already. What we want to know is how do we walk with Jesus every day if we can’t even see Him?” asked Billy.
“Walking with Jesus means reading God’s Word every day and talking to God through prayers. God’s Word is the Bible. Do you have a Bible?” Susie asked them. Billy and Tessa both nodded their heads yes.
“I got mine for my birthday last year,” said Tessa.
“My aunt bought me one when I was born,” said Billy.
“I brought you each that verse I told you last week.” Susie handed them each a piece of paper.
Billy looked at it and read it out loud. “Acts 2:38, Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
“Thank you, Susie,” said Tessa.
“If you read your Bible every day, you will get to know Jesus better. There are so many cool things to learn. You will read about how He heals people and raises them from the dead. You will read about rain that flooded the whole earth and only eight people were saved. And then there’s a boy who killed a lion and a bear with his hands, and then he killed a giant with just a slingshot and a stone,” Susie explained. “oh, and did you know that someone was actually swallowed by a whale and lived to tell about it?”
Billy’s eyes got big and his mouth dropped open. “Wow! Wow! Wow! I can’t wait to read the Bible. I never knew those stories were in there. Are they true stories?”
“Oh yes, everything you read in the Bible is true. God gave men the words to write it,” Susie said.Billy’s eyes got bigger. “Wow!”
“You will also find the Ten Commandments in there, even the eleventh commandment where Jesus tells everyone to love one another like He loves us,” Susie said.“Amazing,” Billy whispered.
“You also said we need to pray every day. How do we do that?” asked Tessa.
“You can pray to God any time of the day, any place you want. You just talk to Him as though He is right there beside you, because He really is. You just can’t see Him,” said Susie.
“When is the best time to pray?” asked Billy.
“It’s always the best time to pray,” said Susie. “In the morning when you wake up, thank God for waking you up and ask Him to help you get through the day. Ask Him to help you be a blessing to other people. In the afternoon, you can talk to Him again. And then just before you go to bed, talk to Him. Tell Him you are sorry for the sins you did that day and ask for His forgiveness. You will be able to sleep so much better if you know God has forgiven you of your sins.”
“Do we always have to kneel down to pray?” asked Billy.
“No, you can kneel, stand, bow, or even lay flat on your stomach or back. It’s up to you how you want to pray,” said Susie.
“What do we say when we pray?” asked Tessa.
“A simple prayer could be something like this:
Dear Lord, You are wonderful and created all things. Sometimes I forget to be kind. I am sorry for my sins. Please forgive me. Thank You for everything you have done for me and all You have given me. Help those who are hungry, cold, or sick. Help me to be a better person. Please keep me safe. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.”
“That’s it?” said Billy. “That’s not a very long prayer. I thought prayer had to be really long.”
“A prayer can be as long or as short as you want. Just talk to God about whatever is on your mind. He will hear you always,” said Susie. “Talking to Jesus is better than talking to your best friend.”
“Why?” asked Tessa.
“Your friend is not always available to talk when you might need them. Maybe your friend is on a vacation. Jesus never takes a vacation. Jesus is always available, day or night. Or maybe your friend is asleep, and you really need to talk to someone in the middle of the night because you had a bad dream. Jesus never sleeps. Your friend might be mad at you and not talking to you when you need them. Jesus will always love you and will always listen to You,” explained Susie.
“When I get home, I’m going to talk to Jesus,” said Billy.
