Online Sunday School Lessons - Being a Part of Jesus' Family

Another great addition to our online Sunday School lessons! Use this lesson to teach kids about being a part of God's family.

Needed: Bibles (optional: pictures of people and the things they invented, examples included)

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

Show students a picture of the first car and ask, Who invented the world’s first car? (Reveal the answer and then do the same for the first video game and the first cell phone.)

(Show the picture of the family.) Who invented the idea of the family? Whose idea was it for there to be moms and dads and kids and brothers and sisters? (God.)

God invented the family. God invented the family so that our parents could love and take care of us and so that we could learn from and be friends with our brothers and sisters. God likes us all to be in families that love and help us.

But as much as God likes our families, our families are not the only family that we have.

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 12:46-50, or read it yourself.)

Who did Jesus say His family is? (Those who do God’s will.)

That means that if you believe in God and do the things God tells us to do, you are a part of Jesus’ family. And if you believe in Jesus and I believe in Jesus, then that means we’re family together because we’re all part of Jesus’ family.

And Jesus says that being a part of His family – believing in God and doing what God wants us to do – is even more important than the families that we live with, like our parents and brothers and sisters. Because believing in God and doing what God wants us to do is the most important thing there is.
