In Case the Take-Home-Page didn't make it home this week. This is what we talked about in RAKlets on June 21, 2013: 

Churches Gather to Hear the Bible Taught - Faith comes from hearing the Word -- Paul’s charge to teach the gospel- 2 Timothy 4:1-4


This week as we we talked about the importance of listening to God’s Word being taught. We read Paul’s instructions to Timothy about the importance of preaching the Word and decided that if it was important for the good news of Jesus to be taught and preached regularly, then it was important for us to listen when it is taught.


Here are some ideas for your family-worship this week. Read more about family worship here.


  • Day 1- Read 2 Timothy 4:1-4- - This was our main text for the week. Pretend that you are Paul writing this letter to a new pastor today or even to one of the pastors of our church. Write the same advice in your own words. Use the examples of some of the things you talked about in children’s church to explain to this pastor why he needs to carefully teach the Word.

  • Day 2- Read Romans 10:13-17- - This passage also speaks of the importance of someone preaching to people in order for them to be saved. Our challenge verse for this week is in this passage (verse 17). Make a poster to help you remember the challenge verse, but to also illustrate the importance of people hearing, someone preaching, someone going to preach and the other truths you see in these verses.

  • Day 3- Read Genesis 2:17, 3:1-6 & 3:23- - In small groups this week we talked about the many truths that we learn about God, our sinfulness and our need of salvation when we listen to the Bible. In this story who should Adam & Eve listened to? Who did they listen to? What is it called when we listen to our own desires instead of what God tells us? Who/ what are some of the ‘voices‘ that we sometimes listen to who pull us away from God and His Word.

  • Day 4- Read Colossians 3:5-10- - We may not realize it, but we are surrounded by ‘voices‘ telling us to go against God and His Word. Make a list of some of the things that the WORLD might tell us to do based on these verses. Save your list for tomorrow.

  • Day 5- Read Colossians 3:12-17- - Look back at your list from yesterday at what someone who is listening to the WORLD might look like. Then, on the other side of the page, make a list of what someone who is listening to and obeying God might look like.

  • THIS WEEKS STORY: Listen to God’s Word- - 2 Timothy 4:1-4

Do you remember our Bible story from last week? Last week we learned that the Bible is God’s Word. We learned that every word of the Bible is spoken by God and every word teaches us about God and how He rescued His people when Jesus died on the cross in our place.

Our story today tells us that it’s very important to listen whenever someone is talking about God or whenever someone is teaching us from the Bible. To make sure that we remember the importance of listening, I want you to hold your hand up around your ear every time I say one of the following words.. . .God, Jesus or Bible.

In the Bible, we read a letter from a man named Paul to a man named Timothy. Paul was traveling around the world teaching people about Jesus. Paul left Timothy in a city called Ephesus so that he could tell the people there about Jesus. 

Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to tell him how to tell people about Jesus and why it was important for him to teach people the Bible. Paul told Timothy that the whole Bible is from God and that it’s all about Jesus. Then, Paul told Timothy that the most important thing He could do was to always teach people the truth about how Jesus came to earth and died on the cross to pay for our sin.

Paul said that Timothy need to teach people about Jesus and people needed to listen as they learned about Jesus. That’s one of the most important things that we can learn from the Bible. Whenever someone is teaching us about God, or telling us the good news about Jesus, or reading to us from the Bible we need to listen. 

The Bible says that when we listen to God’s Words in the Bible that we’ll believe that Jesus died in our place.

  • Play “Can You Hear Me Now?”- Find some small items that make different noises. Have the kids close their eyes (or put their heads down in their laps), play one of the noises and ask, “can you hear me?” Encourage kids to respond by looking up and putting their hand on their ear if they can hear you. Remind them of the story and how we need to listen to the Bible. Remind them that [Bible Phrase] the Bible is God’s Word and that it teaches us who God is and what He has done.
  • Learn the Memory Verse

- “Let us- - point to each other

- not - - wave finger like saying NO

- give up meeting together, - - make a pretend book by holding your hands in front of you

- Hebrews 10:25
