Paul Prays for Believers (Ephesians 3:14-21) Sunday School Lessons and Activities

 Scripture tells us that we are to be rooted in Christ’s love, clinging to Him for strength and identity, and taking comfort in what He has done and continues to do for us. These crafts use real “plant-like” examples to recall how we are firmly planted and rooted in the blessed love of Christ Jesus. A “connection pot” uses a decorative plant pot as a base for ways to stay connected to the Lord. A “root painting” utilizes multisensory materials to create a memorable decoration.

Children’s Sermon

This message uses a plant-based object lesson to communicate to students the importance of having a firm foundation in the love of Jesus. Being “rooted” in Christ means dwelling in Him and gathering strength and nourishment from Him, just as plants set forth roots and are nourished by soil. It can be challenging for youngsters to fully grasp the metaphor of dwelling in Christ, but a practical visual helps to explain how we can be filled with and “attached to” Him.

Bible Craft Demonstration

Roots are critical to the growth and health of plants…they nourish plants and help them to grow. Roots and plants also help us as Christians to remember that our strength comes from the love of Jesus.

Paul Prays for the Ephesians: Ephesians 3:14-21

14 I bow in prayer to the Father because of my work among you. 15 From the Father every family in heaven and on earth gets its name. 16 I pray that he will use his glorious riches to make you strong. May his Holy Spirit give you his power deep down inside you. 17 Then Christ will live in your hearts because you believe in him. And I pray that your love will have deep roots. I pray that it will have a strong foundation. 18 May you have power together with all the Lord’s holy people to understand Christ’s love. May you know how wide and long and high and deep it is. 19 And may you know his love, even though it can’t be known completely. Then you will be filled with everything God has for you.

20 God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine. He does everything by his power that is working in us. 21 Give him glory in the church and in Christ Jesus. Give him glory through all time and for ever and ever. Amen.
