5th and 6th Grade Sunday School Christmas Party

Last Friday my husband’s Sunday School Class came for a Christmas Party.  We had fun making snowman candles,  playing games,  eating pizza and treats,  playing a gift exchange game, and having a devotion from God’s Word.

Our devotions included the following points:
  1. Christmas is a time to give, but also 
    • a time to think about “the gift” (Jesus)
      • the best gift – the most valuable
      • the most needed gift – 1 John 5:12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
      • the most enduring John 10:28  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
    • Jesus gave to the undeserving   – ungodly Romans 5:6  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
    • Jesus gave to His enemies Colossians 1:21  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
    • We are unable to repay Him for this gift. (Rom 5:6)
  2. We ought to give as God gave
    • Not grudgingly – 2 Corinthians 9:7  Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
    • not to be seen of men – Matthew 6:1  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
    • not to those we hope to receive back from
    • but to those in need
    • Just thinking or even talking about it does not meet the need, or imitate Christ – James 2:16  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
