CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: The Transfiguration
THEME: Jesus is all we need.
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 17:1-13
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 be blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about The Transfiguration. This
was the time when Jesus “transfigured” before Peter, James and John. He
revealed to them His glory. What a magnificent thing that must have been to
see! Peter got so excited that he suggested that they build three monuments
right there on that spot. But God spoke from heaven and declared, “This is
my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”
For all of us who know Jesus we are going to get to see Him in the same way
one day. Can you imagine what it will be like to see Him in all of His glory?
It will certainly be exciting. Just as Peter learned in this story, we will also
learn that Jesus is all we need. In the story of the transfiguration, we
learn that Jesus is God’s Son and that He is everything we need.
The section of scripture that we studied was Matthew 17:1-13. 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 st
