Holy and Happy {Teaching Kids Basic Bible Theology}

We’re in lesson seven in our Catechism curriculum with the kids in our midweek program.  Here’s what we have covered so far this quarter (click through for more lesson details):

This week, we will be tackling Question #22 in the Catechism for Boys and Girls, but as I mentioned before, we will be adjusting the wording a bit.

Adam and Eve Holy and Happy

Q: Describe Adam and Eve at the Beginning of Time

A: God made them Holy and Happy

Supporting Scripture: 2 Peter 3:11b

Lesson Time

During our lesson, we’ll touch on these key points:

  • When God made Adam and Eve, they lived in a perfect world.
  • They were created with holy and sinless hearts
  • They were happy because they were holy — they loved and obeyed God.
  • Unfortunately, they did not stay holy and happy.
  • Adam and Eve disobeyed and introduced sin into the world and now, everyone suffers from the problem of a sinful heart.
  • A sinful heart is a big problem because it keeps us from loving and obeying God.
  • God solved the problem of our sinful hearts through his perfect son, Jesus, who took the punishment for our sins.

More Games and Activities

For this question and answer, there are three main ideas you could focus on: Adam and Eve, Sinful Hearts, and Salvation.
