On Your Own

Junior Level

Our Sunday school topic for today describes King Hezekiah. He was a holy man, but God gave him great riches just to test him. God put him on his own as a test, just to find out whether Hezekiah, in the midst of success, would still worship his Lord.  By doing this, the Lord helped Hezekiah examine his own heart, and make a decision completely on his own.

Handout: On Your Own

  1. Ask the students - When someone gives you a gift, do you show thanks?
  2. Ask the students - What if someone was like a gift tree, and they just kept on giving you gifts every day?
  3. If you got used to these gifts, would you forget to be thankful after a while?
  4. Describe King Hezekiah's experience. Ask: Why would God give so much to Hezekiah and then leave him on his own??
  5. What does the Bible say?
  6. Describe the joy and personal reward of a personal decision - all on your own - for Christ
  7. Challenge students to make their own decision this week.
  8. Prayer


Hand out pieces of paper and have the students make them into a crown. Don't give
them directions - they have to do this on their own!


Serving others


1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer to every man
that asketh you a reason of the hope that
is in you with meekness and fear
