BIBLE TEXT: Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
MEMORY VERSE: 1 Timothy 1:16 “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting”
LESSON AIM: The children will learn that patience is an attribute of God and they need to be patient.
CHILD-RELATED TRUTH: God made patience possible through Christ
Can anyone tell me what patience is? (Allow time for response and different ideas.) The dictionary tells us patience is the bearing of pain, misfortune, or annoyance without anger, irritation, or complaint. Bearing is like holding something very heavy. When you are going through something difficult, it can feel like you are carrying something very heavy everywhere you go. So patience is going through something very hard, or just something very annoying without getting angry or complaining. In order to know all about patience, what do we need to do? (Look in the Bible) God’s Word is our ultimate source of truth.
PROGRESSION OF EVENT:
1. Proverbs 19:11 reminds us that a wise person is patient.
2. Colossians 1:11 tells us that God’s glorious power gives us the strength to be patient.
3. 2 Peter 3:15 explains that Jesus is patiently waiting to come back to earth so that all people will have a chance to know Him and be saved. So, God is patient in a general way with all people, but also in a very specific way with each of us.
4. In 1 Timothy 1:16, Paul says that he was shown mercy so that God’s perfect patience would be put on display.
GOSPEL CONNECTION: As sinners, we have offended God. The Bible says that we have even hated Him. So, God had every right to be angry with us, but instead, He showed just how awesome His patience is by saving us.
CLIMAX: Patience becomes part of the kind of person we are. With the Spirit living inside of us, He gives us the power to be patient
CONCLUSION: When we are struggling to be patient with another person, we should remember God’s patience toward us
CHALLENGE: If someone hurts you and you really just want to explode back at them, think of all the things you have done against God. Think of how He could have punished you, but instead in His patience poured out His mercy and love. This is not just when we are saved either. Every day we still wrong God and He still patient with us. If someone hurts you and you really just want to explode back at them, think of all the things you have done against God. Think of how He could have punished you, but instead in His patience poured out His mercy and love. This is not just when we are saved either. Every day we still wrong God and He still is patient with us. So, may that truth sink deep into our hearts and motivate us to be patient with others.
INVITATION: God will give you the grace to be patient if you believe in Jesus and be saved (John 3:16).
