CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: The True Vine
THEME: We can do nothing without Jesus!
SCRIPTURE: John 15:1-11
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids. Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will e blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about The True Vine. The theme
was “We can do nothing without Jesus.” How difficult it is for us to try
to achieve things on our own. At first, our steps might appear to be heading
in the right direction, but if we are not abiding in Christ we will not
This week we will learn about Jesus as the true vine and how that we are the
branches. We will learn how we can be “pruned” by the vinedresser (God),
to enhance our growth and fruit. We can also see that when the branch is
not connected to the vine, the branch does not grow or produce life. This is
a great story for us to learn from.
The section of scripture that we studied was John 15:1-12. The following
five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the theme for
Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you to review these
verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for the
application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool to help
in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may want to add your own ideas to these to make them
more age appropriate.
May the Lord bless you as you study His Word together!
