At the Summit, we’re striving to climb to new heights with Jesus. These five devotionals are suggestions of activities to do as a family to help your family to climb closer to Jesus together at home during the week. This tool is intended to help you lead a family worship time. Please go to God in worship as a family on a regular basis even if you do not use this resource. If your family completes one of the devotionals parents can initial in the boxes below and the child will receive a buck for every devotional completed.
Devotional One, Read: Read the following verse about the vine and the branches. Scriptures to consider: Ezekiel 17:7-9; John 15:1-6
Devotional Two, Pray: Jesus said the branches abide. This just means to live or to take up abode. Part of living with Jesus is communicating to Him. Ask Him to help you today to abide in Him.
Devotional Three, Mold: A gardener has to sometimes cut away the bad parts of a plant for the rest of the plant to grow the right way. That’s part o why Jesus uses the picture of the vine and branches to explain our relationship. Jesus molds us but he also takes away the bad stuff (sin). See if you can mold a vine with branches and clumps of grapes. “Prune” away the “bad” parts and thank the Lord for making you more like Him every day.
Devotional Four, Build: Build a scene from Numbers 14:145 using Legos, Duplos, Mega Blocks, or some other kind of building toy. See if you can use these blocks to get all of the details right. Talk with your parents about how this story might relate to the one we learned on Sunday.
Devotional Five, Sing: I love hymns. Hymns are songs that people might have been singing for hundreds of years. One of my favorites is “I am the vine” With your parent’s help, look up this song on the internet or in a hymn book. See if you can find the story behind the song. Talk about this song and what it means. A good resource is “www.cyberhymnal.org,” you can listen and read the lyrics and read about the hymn. See if you can sing the hymn once you’re finished learning about it.
Devotional Six, Serve: Part of our “pruning” comes when we think less of ourselves and more of others. The best way to think of others is by doing something helpful for them. Is there someone you can think of that needs help in your neighborhood? Could an older lady need help with yard work, help her. Think of someone you can help this week and tell them you’re helping them because Jesus has helped you and is helping you.
