CBC Lesson fro 21th to 27th of July


Hebrews 10:36; Numbers 13:25-33 and 14:24; Joshua 1:9, 6, 14:1-15

Teach children that, when we persevere and do God’s will, we receive the blessing
we wish.

“For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise...” (Hebrews 10:36)


            Take to class the picture of a trumpet or a trumpet which will be used during story time. Educator, start this moment by asking: Who here ever needed to wait several days to receive a gift? (Wait participation of your class) When your mother says she is going to give you a gift, you keep waiting but want to receive it soon, right? On today’s story we will hear about two men who believed in the promises of God and received the gift the Lord has promised for them. Let us find out what this gift was? Then be quiet, it is about to start!


    THE PEOPLE of God lived for so long as slaves in Egypt, but God sent Moses to deliver them and promised He would give them a good land to live. Moses chose twelve men to watch the Promise Land, and after forty days they came back. Ten of the watchers told Moses that the land was very good to live in, but many giants were living in that place, and because of that they should not move to there. However, two spies, Joshua and Caleb, thought differently and did not agree with that complaint. Caleb made them shut up and said they would conquer that land for that was a promise from God.
    Class, time has passed, Moses got old and died, and Joshua got his place. Years passed by and those ten men and all the people who had doubts died too. Children, to get to the land promised by God they had to pass through that city. God told Joshua and the people to march six days around the city and on the seventh day, to play the trumpets and to yell out loud, and He would make a great miracle. They obeyed and do you know what happened? The big wall fell down and the enemies were destroyed.
    Little friends, it had passed over forty years and Caleb had not forgotten the promise God had made for him. They conquered the land of Canaan, and Joshua divided the land among the Israelites. You know, kids, at that moment Caleb remembered Joshua that he also had the right to receive a part of that land and asked the land of Hebron. Little friends, even with 85 five years, Caleb was ready to face and defeat the giants of that place and willing to fight for it.
    The army of the tribe of Judah helped Caleb and they defeated the giants, expelling them off that land, and Caleb took over the blessing.


         When we remain in faith and do the will of God, we are answered and we receive the blessings we need, as happened with Joshua and Caleb who did the will of God and remained steady, even after so many years. Who here will persist say “me”! Amen!

            Educator, you take to class the picture of a house under construction (easy to find in websites) and the picture of a built house. Start this moment by saying the following: Children, see this picture (show the house under construction). This is the beginning of a house. Now see this picture (show the picture of a built house). This house is ready, right? To build a house several things are necessary: the land where it will be built, the material for the building, the professionals who will make this work, etc. You do not build a house in a day, right?
            So it is in our lives, for to reach what we want we should fight, make an effort every day. You know, kids, when we persevere and make the will of God we receive the blessings. Joshua and Caleb persevered, obeyed God, they were not afraid and got into the Promise Land. Who here wish to be like them say “I”. Amen!
