Jesus Sunday School Lessons - If You're Not With Me, You're Against Me

Use this as part of your Jesus Sunday School lessons to teach children about uniting ourselves with Jesus.


Needed: Bibles (optional: something to represent two professional sports teams, such as pictures of their logo, jerseys, or hats)

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students enough time to think about and to give their answers to the questions before clarifying the teaching.)

Show students your two items. I’m using the Cowboys and the Bengals football teams for this example.

Say, Let’s pretend you’re going to be a pro football player and you want to join the Cowboys team. If you join the Cowboys team, can you also join the Bengals team and be on both teams at the same time? (No.)

What if you don’t join the Cowboys team or the Bengals team. Let’s say you change your mind and don’t want to be on any football team. Are you on the Cowboys team then? (No.)

You have to actually be on the Cowboys team to be on the Cowboys team, right?

That’s kind of the same way it is with Jesus and being a Christian.

(Have a student read Matthew 12:30, or read it yourself.)

Jesus said if you’re not with Him, you’re against Him. If you’re not on His team, then you’re on the devil’s team. If you’re on Jesus’ team, if you believe in Jesus, then you’ll go to Heaven when you die. But if you don’t believe in Him, like maybe you believe in another religion, or maybe you don’t believe in anything at all, then that means you’re not on Jesus’ team and you can’t go to Heaven when you die. You have to be on Jesus’ team, you have to believe in Jesus, if you want to go to Heaven.

And Jesus wants all of us to be on His team so that we can all go to Heaven when we die.

Raise your hand if you believe in Jesus and want to be on His team.
