1 GOD S PLAN FOR PEOPLE LIFE POINT: God made people in His own image. CREATION LEVEL OF BIBLICAL LEARNING God created people in His image. BIBLE PASSAGE Genesis 2:4-24 UNIT VERSE In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 (HCSB) WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE Genesis 1:27 SUGGESTED DATE Week of September 11 LEADER BIBLE STUDY In the last session we showed how modern astronomy verifies the universe was created. Even more astounding is that science has discovered how the universe is fine-tuned for the existence of human life. Consider this: if the earth was not 93 million miles from the sun, was not tilted on its axis at precisely 23.4 degrees, did not rotate exactly once every 24 hours, or did not revolve around the sun every days, we could not exist on this planet! We traced God s process to prepare the world for the pinnacle of His creation: The human race! Beginning in Genesis 2:4, we see how God made man and woman. God formed man (Hebrew: Adam) and breathed into him the breath of life. God placed the man, later named Adam, in a beautiful garden where nourishing plants grew. In the garden were two special trees: the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God forbade Adam to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. As time passed God allowed the Adam to name all the animals. Nonetheless, none was really adequate as his companion. Therefore, God put Adam to sleep and formed a woman from his rib. God brought them together and blessed the marriage of the man and woman. What is the special significance of God s breathing life into Adam so that Adam became a living being? Why did God forbid Adam to eat fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Why is God s definition of marriage so significant? (see Jesus affirmation: Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9) NOTE: Downloadable versions of items identified as CD are available in the Music and Print Extras Bundle.

2 BIBLE STORY God s Plan for People God created a man out of the dust of the ground. God breathed life into the man, and he became a living being. God made the man in His Own image. God planted a garden in Eden, and He made every tree to grow in the garden. Some trees were beautiful and some trees supplied food. A river went out from Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became the start of four other rivers. God took the man He created and placed him in the garden. God planned for the man to work in the garden and to watch over it. God told him that he could eat from any tree in the garden except for one. God saw that it was not good for the man to be alone. He decided to make the man a helper. God brought all of the animals of the ground and the birds of the sky to the man. The man named all of the animals and birds. But none of them could be the man s helper. God caused the man to fall asleep. God took one of the man s ribs and closed the man s skin. Then God made the rib from the man into a woman. God took the woman to the man. The man said, This is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. I will call her woman because she was taken from man. BASED ON GENESIS 2:4-24 REVIEW QUESTIONS What did God create the man from? (dust of the ground) What did God breathe into the man? (the breath of life) In whose image did God make man? (in His Own image) Where did God place Adam? (in the garden of Eden) What did God plan for the man to do in the garden? (work in the garden and watch over it) What did God see that was not good? (for the man to be alone) What did God create the woman from? (the rib of the man) BIBLE STUDIES FOR LIFE GRADES 1 3 &

Continue to replace words with actions. Option: Teach the weekly Bible verse, Genesis 1: Life Action Explain that being made in God s image refers to our ability to think, feel, act, and decide. When we sin, we are not thinking, feeling, acting, or deciding in a way that honors God. Talk about how Jesus is the perfect image of God. Jesus was perfect and without sin. His sacrifice on the cross enables us to receive forgiveness for our sin and have eternal life. Call attention to Who, Me? Like Him? on the Kids Activity Page. Give kids a few moments to respond to the survey and suggest other actions, thoughts, or characteristics that reflect God s image. Remind kids that sin keeps people from being perfect reflections of God, but it does not keep people from God s love! God still loves us even though we sin.

Invite kids to hold mirrors on the half-drawings to see full images of things God created. Explain that only people are made in God s image. Encourage kids to choose a drawing. Lead right-handed kids to choose an image on the left side and left-handed kids to choose an image on the right side.

What makes it difficult to treat some people as a reflection of God s image? Show the construction paper phrase.

Guide kids to keep one cuff and give the other one away. Challenge kids to tell the recipient that he or she is created in God s image. Choice 2: All About Appearances Comment that instead of basing a person s self-worth on being made in God s image, many people rely on other things to feel special. Provide newspapers, magazines, scissors, and glue. Guide kids to create a collage with pictures and captions of things that represent appearance-based or externalbased self-worth (such as expensive clothes, strength and athletic ability, popularity, and so on). Prompt kids to explain each picture on the collage. Option: provide markers and allow kids to draw representative pictures. When about five minutes remain, call for volunteers to read these verses: Deuteronomy 33:3; 1 Samuel 16:7; Jeremiah 1:5; Isaiah 43:4; Ephesians 2:10.

20 Learning the Stories INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS Children all over the world are important to Jesus. He loves them and wants them to learn about Him when they are very young. Christian workers, like Kimberly Cain in West Africa, love the children like Jesus does. Sometimes Kimberly teaches kids as they sit on mats on the dusty ground. Sometimes she teaches kids at a local church where the roof is made of woven grass. That church building might not look KIMBERLY CAIN like yours, but the children in West Africa are learning the same stories from the Bible that you are! Kimberly uses a storying cloth to tell stories from the Bible. Each picture on the cloth tells a story. Kimberly tells children the story of creation and continues with stories about Jesus so children can grow up knowing Him and telling others about Him. Ways to pray for the people and missionaries in West Africa: k Pray that missionaries will be willing and able to learn the language spoken by the people so they can tell the people about Jesus. k Pray for missionaries as they adjust to a different culture in a part of the world where the temperature stays very hot all year. k Pray that the children of West Africa will learn to follow Jesus at a young age.
