Children’s sermon: Families

Filed under: Children's sermons — denisedayspencer @ 2:41 am

Another children’s sermon based on the doctrinal summaries in the Disciple’s Study Bible.

SCRIPTURES: Genesis 1:27-28, Luke 2:51-52

OBJECT: a family portrait

I brought a picture for you to see today. This is a special kind of picture called a family portrait. A family portrait might be a picture of a mom, a dad, and the children. It might include grandparents or other family members.

From the very beginning of time, God has planned that we should live together in families. He created Adam, then He made a wife for Adam named “Eve.” God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply.” That meant God intended for them to have children, and they did.

God puts people in families for lots of reasons. Family members can be friends for each other and support one another. God planned for children to be born into families where they can be brought up by a mom and a dad who love each other and work together to raise the children. God wants Christian parents to teach their children about Him, and He wants to be the center of our families. It’s in families that children are to learn how to love, how to obey, and how to serve others.

God even thought it was important for His own Son to be a part of a family. He didn’t send Jesus to earth already grown up, but as a tiny baby. Jesus had a mom, a dad, brothers and sisters. The Bible says that Jesus lived in Nazareth with His parents, “and was obedient to them…and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”

Let’s be thankful for our families. If God wanted even Jesus to grow up in a family, He wants the same for us today.



  1. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?

    My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
