Leader 1: "Hi, I'm Mr./Ms. (First name)" Leader 2: "Hi, I'm Mr./Ms. (First name)"
Leader 1: Everybody stand up! We’re going to sing about God’s great love for us!
Leader 2: That song talked about God’s amazing love for us. He sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins, and then He raised Him from the dead. Everyone who trusts Jesus to take away their sins lives with God as His friend. God loves us by making a way for our sins to be forgiven.
God also loves us by watching over us. He is always with us, and we can never get away from Him. He knows when we’re in trouble or when we get scared or need help. Let’s sing a song about God’s love as He watches over us and is always with us.
Leader 1: When we trust in Jesus to take away our sins, we become part of God’s family. We become His children. And if God is our father, we don’t have to worry, because He’ll take care of us!
This is the new song we started to learn last week. It’s about how we don’t have to worry about our problems, or about scary things, or about anything, as long as we’re God’s children. We can laugh about the things that used to scare us, because we know God is bigger than all our trouble.
3. “Laugh,” Words and Music by Jamie Barnes ©2012 Sojourn Music
Laugh at my troubles. Laugh at my pain. Laugh in the face of all that scares me.
Laugh at the devil. Laugh at the dark. Laugh 'cause I know that the Light has come.
Laugh 'cause he loves me. Laugh 'cause he's mine. He's done so many things that I'm laughin' all the time.
Leader 2: We’re going to pray now. When we talk to God, we need to pay attention to Him, so everybody fold your hands and close your eyes and be still and pay attention to God; we’re going to talk to Him now.
“God, thank You for being with us all the time. You watch over us and protect us. Thank You that You turn every bad thing into something good for everyone who trusts in Your Son Jesus. Please give us grace and help us to trust You whenever we are afraid. Amen.”
God is so loving, and takes such good care of us! He loves us so much He sent Jesus to pay the price for all the times we disobey Him. This good news is so good, we should tell everybody we know about the love God shows in sending Jesus. Let’s go and tell the world about Him!
