CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: A New Heaven and a
THEME: God is preparing a special place
SCRIPTURE: Revelation 21:1-27
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 New Heavens and
New Earth that God is preparing for us. There is a wonderful description
of it in the book of Revelation. It is exciting to just get a glimpse into what
God has in store for His people. Our theme was God is preparing a special
place for us. Before Jesus left to return to the Father, He promised that
He would prepare a special place for us.
We find that not only is the place that God is preparing very beautiful, but
there will also be no death, sorrow or pain. That is going to be exciting! It’s
hard for any of us to grasp what heaven will be like but we can certainly
look forward to it by faith. God gives us the wonderful hope of spending
eternity with Him, and His promises are SURE!
The section of scripture that we studied was Revelation 21:1-27. 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.
