- Tonight we are going on a little walk before our family time
- Light a candle
- Turn off all the lights in your house
- Walk around your house with your kids and have them follow you as you hold the candle
- What was it like walking around the house with just a candle?
- What would have happened if we didn’t have the candle?
- Tonight we are going to learn about another statement that Jesus said about himself and it has something to do with this candle
- Read John 8:12
- “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
- How is Jesus the light of the world?
- Do you remember a story in the Old Testament about how God made a pillar of fire to show the Israelites where to go in the desert?
- In the same way Jesus shows us how we can live like him
- What is one thing Jesus gives us as a guidebook to show us how to live like him? (the Bible)
- How does the Bible show us how to live?
- Without the Bible and without Jesus we wouldn’t know how to live our lives
- Application question: What is one way that you can live like Jesus this week?
- Daily application question at dinner: How did you live like Jesus today?
- What do you think our symbol is today?
- Now whenever you see this candle you can remember that Jesus shows us we can live like him
- Color in the candle and then we will put the square on our cubes
