TOPIC: BE READY TO GO WITH JESUS

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 16: 24-28
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
28 Verily I say unto you, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

LESSON AIM: The saved child will deny Himself and follow Jesus.

INTRODUCTION: It is the end of the race that matters. Trophies are not given for great stats, Medals are not awarded for entering the race. A good start is crucial, but in the end, the end is what matters. You cannot say you made it without getting to that finish line. When Jesus comes, will you be ready / qualified to go with him?
PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:
A. Are you ready to go with Jesus?
In Matthew 16: 24-26. Then Jesus said to his disciple “ if any of you want to follow after me, let him deny himself. And take up his cross and follow me.”
To be ready to go with Jesus you will do three things.
a. Deny yourself.
b. Take up your cross.
c. Follow him.
B. Deny yourself: to turn away from your selfish ways by giving up your rights and desires. The Disciples of Jesus. Who he called, were willing to give up their boats, fishing Nets, houses, families, careers, trade, friends, expectations, idols, desires, etc.
Jesus also denied himself, His rights, He left his heavenly home to come down and identify with man, not even having a home to live in. He did not enjoy special meals; he just ate anything He was offered. John 4:31-34, Matthew 8:14-15.
What way can you deny yourself to follow Jesus? (Let the children respond).
By giving up wrong habits that will not glorify Jesus. Like, foul languages, bad, friends, gluttony, indecent dressing, fighting, lying, and laziness. You have to be like Him. In order to be ready to follow Him.
C. Take up your cross – Matthew 10:38 says, Jesus said “Anyone who does not take up his cross and follows Him is not worthy of him.
As a child of God. In following him You will suffer something as a result of denying yourself. if a child of God, be willing to suffer for Christ’s sake, take it joyfully and refuse to get discouraged, force treated, or act as if something strange is happening to you, instead be happy that you are taking part in the suffering of Christ.
Taking up your cross means commitment to Christ daily, it may involve giving up your toys, food, money, clothing, time, games, computer, phones, etc. Sounds hard and difficult? The reward is worth the price. It means being willing to give up anything for His sake.
D. Follow Me – This means following in His footsteps knowing and obeying His ways. 1 Peter 2:22. We should not emulate friends, relations, teachers, or family members who are not following Christ. Jesus did not sin and no deceit was found in Him.
CLIMAX: Are you ready to follow Jesus?
Are you willing to follow Jesus even if it means losing your close friends?
Will you be willing to follow Jesus even if it means forsaking all things you love?
Will you follow Jesus if it tells you to give your best shoe or toy or something you value or like so much to someone else and stay without it?
What if he wants to test you? like job and Joseph were tested, would you pass or fail his test?
