Under Construction VBS Day 5: Kingdom Mission (Matthew 28:19)

Josh RobertsComment

Parents,

We'd love for you to use this short devotional to review today's story with your kids.

Background: Today we were in the last chapter of Matthew and we heard about the ascension of Jesus. The disciples met Jesus in Galilee on the mountain when he told them to go. Jesus invites the disciples to participate in God’s kingdom by making disciples, baptizing, and teaching. Jesus invites us to do the same.

Opening/Ice Breaker: Have you ever been to a concert, basketball, or football game? Would you rather sit close or far away? Why is it fun to sit right up front?

Read Matthew 28:19

Questions/Apply it:

  • How have you seen Jesus transform you?
  • Why is it sometimes intimidating to share your story with others?
  • How does it make you feel knowing that Jesus has promised to always be with you, even in hard situations?
