Purpose: Use this children’s sermon on the Bible to teach kids Who wrote the Bible.
Scripture: 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16
Needed: a children’s storybook, a Bible
Show kids your storybook, and ask, Can anyone tell me who wrote this storybook? Who’s the author?
How do you think the author got the ideas to write this book? (They made it up out of their imagination.)
(Show your Bible.)
Who do you think wrote this book? I don’t see anyone’s name on the cover.
Did you know you that more 40 people wrote the Bible? Moses wrote some parts, and David wrote some parts, and Paul wrote some parts… At least 40 people wrote some part of the Bible!
But where did they get the ideas of what to write?
The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit helped the people know what to write (2 Peter 1:20-21). It also says that “All Scripture is God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). God spoke the words that He wanted people to write.
So, when we read the Bible in church and at home, we’re not just reading someone else’s ideas as we do in other books. We’re reading God’s ideas and the words that He wanted people to write. That should make us want to read the Bible more and more – because they’re God’s words to us.
God, we thank You for giving us Your words and ideas in the Bible. Help us to read it more and more so that we can learn everything that You want us to. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
