Hook: In this easy Bible Lesson we are told by Paul that one of our privleges as the church is to partner with angels. How could we possibly do that?
Book: “Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!” (Ephesians 3:9,10) As followers of Jesus our lives make known God’s amazing plan to transform the world through Christ and in this we are partnering with angels. How? Because God is releasing all the powers of heaven, including angels, to work on our hehalf.
Look: I love the idea that we can partner with angels. They are watching from heaven and see what is going on in our lives. God sends them to work with us and enforce what Jesus did on the cross as he defeated death and to removed Satan’s authority here on earth. All we have to do is ask and them step out by faith believing that the angels are working by our side.
Took: Ask your children if they can sense the angels who are working with them? Often times, children are more sensitive to angels than adults. Have them partner with angels on behalf of God in their daily lives of bringing heaven to earth.
