Follow the Command

Give simple commands for your kids to follow.

Hop on one foot at least 7 times without putting the other foot down.

Rub your belly while at the same time patting your head.

Touch something blue (add other colors: red, green, yellow, etc.)

For the next 20 seconds, high five your siblings as many times as possible. (Find out who did the most high-fives.)

Walk like a robot.

Run in place like a bird (add other animals: seal, elephant, crab, etc.)

Count how many jumping jacks you can do in 10 seconds.  

Were some of those commands easy or hard for you? Jesus gave His disciples (and us) a command to complete. We are to tell others about what Jesus has done. He has promised to give us the power we need to obey this command (Acts 1:8).

Do Your Part

Think of a simple job for your kids to accomplish and break it down into one step for each kid. Write each one out on an index card if you like or assign them a task.

Some ideas:

  • build a fort in the living room (one gather blankets, one gather chairs, one spread out the blankets, one gathers snack, etc.)
  • make a dessert (one gathers ingredients, one gets out the mixer, one mixes it, one sets the timer, all share in eating it, etc.)
  • organize the toys (one puts the books on the shelf, one gathers the Lego’s into a bin, one lines up the cars, etc.)

What would have happened if you didn’t complete your part of the mission? (Something would be missing; it wouldn’t get done; etc.)

King Jesus had completed His work on earth and it was time for Him to go back to Heaven. He had a big job for His followers: they were to be His representatives (ambassadors) all over the world so everyone could hear the good news about Jesus and the way to Heaven. All Christ followers are to be ambassadors and share this wonderful news until Jesus returns.

Share the Good News

Watch a short video (less than two minutes) to see how bees tell other bees some good news:

How do the bees share the good news about food with others?

How can we share the good news about Jesus with others?
