Children’s sermon: Creation is of God

Filed under: Children's sermons — denisedayspencer @ 1:48 am

This is the first in a two-parter on creation, based on the doctrinal studies in “The Disciple’s Study Bible.”

Scripture: Job 38:1, 4-7

Object: a complex object made from building blocks (or a finished puzzle)

Today I want to show you something. This is made from building blocks. It looks like it took a lot of work, doesn’t it? You’re probably wondering, “Who made it?”” Did I make it? Did someone else do it?

Would you think it just made itself? Of course not! That would be ridiculous, wouldn’t it? Just as this didn’t make itself, our world didn’t make itself, either. God made the world and everything in it. God made the whole universe! We don’t exist by chance, but by God’s choice.

In the book of Job, God says, “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell Me, if you understand.” We don’t really understand, do we? None of us were there to see God create the world. But we know He’s the One who made it, even if we can never fully understand how He did it.

God didn’t just create the world and leave it to run itself. He is still busy today, keeping everything running. If God were to withdraw His hand for even a moment, the sun would stop shining and the earth would stop turning. We need to remember that every breath we take is a gift from Him. He created our world. He created us, and He has created everything we need to live.

Why did God create? We’ll talk about that next time.
