Bible Verse:

Genesis 1:26

Big Ideas:

  • God made me in His image.
  • God made me valuable.
  • God made me unique.

Bible Story:

John 1:43-51

God created all of the world. But, when He created man, He made him special and in His image. God also created each person unique and special, including you! The story of Philip and Nathanael reminds us of this because Jesus knows who Nathanael is even when they had never met before. God created us individually, and He knows each one of us.


Creation: Review

Guide 9 acts as a review for the preceding weeks. Use this guide and devotion to support, reinforce, and review concepts learned throughout the past weeks and to test your child’s understanding and memory of these truths.

God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
