This Week’s Gathering: Flourish | Beginnings: Who Is God & Who Am I?

The story of the universe started with God. He was and is the main character, breathing life into its every corner of space and time. He is the One and Only Creator—our Maker. At humanity’s very beginning, we were set in the communion of His company to enjoy eternal life and relationship with Him. But with one of His many gifts, namely freedom, we chose to sever that relationship and define true living and all manner of good and evil for ourselves. From there we found ourselves lost, overcome by death.

But, in Him, the story persisted. The Creator of the Cosmos thread humanity back into His glory, redeeming and reviving us back to true life, light, and freedom through His Son. In the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God has called us back to Himself for good. And in following him, we journey towards recovering our true identity, full of purpose and dignity; image-bearers of the One True King that may know and enjoy Him forever.

Jesus is our Friend Forever

Story Focus: Jesus is alive, and He wants to be our friend forever. Then comes a crucial part of the Easter story for our preschoolers. Jesus’ friends are out in a boat and they look to the shore. Guess who they see? Jesus! He’s sitting on the beach cooking breakfast. They quickly join Him to eat, talk, and just be with their good friend, Jesus. This story of Jesus being with His friends on the beach helps solidify the idea that Jesus really did come back in preschool minds.

Put Others First

In Philippians 2:3-8 Paul explains how Jesus is the ultimate example of humility. As you deal with one another, you should think and act as Jesus did . . . He was humble and obeyed God completely. He did this even though it led to his death, (NIrV). As God’s Son, Jesus was equal with God, but instead of using that to His advantage, Jesus put us first and made a way for us to have a relationship with God.

Bottom Line: Put others first because Jesus put you first. When it comes to our interactions with others, we should remember what Jesus did for us. Rather than thinking we’re the best or deserve the most, we should remember that Jesus deserved everything but gave it up because He loved us so much. When we put others first, we show them a glimpse of what Jesus did for the entire world.

Put Others First 

Key Question: What keeps you from putting others first? If we’re honest, I think we’d all say that putting others first can be difficult sometimes. One of the best ways to figure out how to put others first is to think about the reasons you might not show humility in the first place. Small group leaders will guide preteens through conversations that we pray will allow them to consider how they can show humility even in those situations where it’s most difficult.

Let Us Abide

In this time while we’re not able to be physically together, we’ll be sharing encouragements, prayers, short teachings, and devotionals throughout every week on on Instagram and Facebook as well as on our website.

We know that all of us are experiencing quite a shift from our regular weekly rhythms, but the rhythm of abiding in Jesus—following His way, truth, and life—remains. And in doing so, we find He is our anchor in all times, always drawing us in closer towards Him and others.

Let’s not stop fearlessly pressing into abiding in Him individually and as a community in every moment. He pulls great purpose and beauty out of all seasons, leading us in every step.
