Kids Quest Elementary – Best Friends for Life:
Building Deep Friendships Together
Imagine yourself in a group of friends. You’ve been friends since elementary school. You’ve been through good times and bad times, through many life changes. The relationship you have with this group of friends is unlike any other, and you do all that you can to keep this relationship alive and growing.
Then something terrible happens.
One of your friends in this group gets sick, really sick. The doctors give him 3 months to live. You and everyone else in the group starts praying, gets online, starts making calls, doing everything possible to find a cure for your friend.
One of you hears about a Man who is doing the unthinkable – healing people! It doesn’t matter the diagnosis, complete healing is always the result.
What would you be willing to do to get your friend to this Man?
This week we’ll be reading about a group of friends who were willing to do whatever it took and wouldn’t let anything stand in the way of their friend getting to Jesus to be healed. You can read more about this in Luke 5:17-26, Mark 2:1-12.
If you are blessed to have a group of friends like this man, praise Jesus! Do your friends know about Jesus? If no, what are you doing to share the Good News of God’s love with them? Are you moved with a sense of urgency, and do whatever it takes attitude like the friends in our story?
If your friends do know and love Jesus, do we challenge each other to grow in our faith and relationship with God?
So much to think about and consider... I’m so grateful that God sent the Holy Spirit to teach and remind us what we should do. May we be still enough to hear His voice, strong enough to obey and bold enough to behave like the friends in our story and do whatever it takes to help our friends know Jesus!
