Even Jesus obeyed authority
How to Get There
Point One - Obeying authority pleases God.
- This is a great place to roll out all the verses that speak of children obeying their parents, citizens obeying the law, and people obeying God.
Point Two - Obeying authority gives us protection in life.
- Great place to toss in a story of the boy who was told not to put his hand on the stove but just had to do it.
Point Three - Obeying authority gives us direction in life.
- This is like following the street signs of school, parents discipline, and where we are called by the Lord.
- This is also the main tie-in with survival. You can talk about surviving bad teachers, near accidents, or almost anything else that relates to following guides.
Point Four - Even Jesus obeyed authority.
- Matthew 26:39
Things to Watch For
This topic is more theory than experiential so I had to make sure that I was constantly using real life examples of what I was talking about. I also used 2 kids to illustrate the points that I was making. I had them act out the story I was telling or asked them if they had ever experienced something like I was talking about. I ended up having a million kids wanting to tell a million stories so watch out for the kids that talk without raising their hand. They will go nuts as you tell your personal experience.
