the Jesus seed in us by the Holy Spirit, remember, 3 in 1.

Today we will see how the seeds that fell on the
path are like people that have no interest in God. Jesus knew the
importance of the condition of our hearts. “When anyone
hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it,
the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart.
This is the seed sown along the path.”
We will not get to heaven by just hearing the Good
News about Jesus we must receive the Good News, and then ask God
to forgive us. Jesus is the seed that grows in us and saves us from
sin. When I am saved the Jesus seed starts to grow in me. We need
to read our Bibles, pray and worship God.
The Bible is the Word of God that gives the Jesus
seed in me all the food that He needs to grow. When I read the Bible
I am being fed Spiritually. (Have different types of soil available
in separate cup labeled “Good Soil,” “Rocks,”
and “Sand.” Ask the children which soil is best? )
1. What does sow mean? What is another name for someone who sows
seeds? (Plant, farmer, gardener.)
2. In our story today, where did the seeds fall? (On the path.)
3. What happened to the seed that fell on the path? (Birds came
and ate it up.)
4. Will we get to heaven by just hearing the Good News about Jesus?
(No, we must receive the Good News, and then ask God to forgive
5. Does the evil one (Satan) try to steal God's message
from our hearts? (Yes!)
6. Why would the evil one want us to forget God's message? (So
we won't follow and worship God.)
7. How can we keep from forgetting God's message? (Read our
Bibles, pray to God, Worship God.)

(Teach the children how to use this excellent tool to
share their faith with their friends)
’Enola Ewe Igbale Irugbin’
Once upon a time there was a
little seed called Eniola Ewe Igbale Irugbin,
She dreamed of one day becoming a big tree...
But Eniola was
very very sad because people were calling her names...
But her real names are… Miracle tree, Mothers
best friend, the tree of Paradise, the Purifying tree.
Eniola knew her strengths “I can kick Malnutrition
out of the window” So when she met her new friend “Abaeze”
she knew she could help him. HOW?
Because Ewe Igbale contains:
• 7 times the vitamin C in oranges
• 4 times the calcium in milk
• 4 times the vitamin A in carrots
• 3 times the potassium in bananas
• 2 times the protein in milk
One day she leant Abaeze had Malaria, she was sad
but she knew what to do. She made a tea from the dried Ewe Igbale
leaves and Abaeze drank it three times a day and was soon up and
about! PRAISE GOD
Abaeze brought his cow to his new friend –
Eniola “Can you help?” Ewe Igbale can be used
as food for cows, rabbits and chickens it will make them fatter
and supply more milk.
Abaeze’s mum was going to have a baby …
Ewe Igbale tea is excellent for pregnant mums.
Abaeze you know I can help you…
When you are hungry, when you are sick, when your animals are sick.
But Abaeze do you know for sure you are going to be in Heaven with
God some day…
(The flipchart will lead the child into the Salvation Message)
Remember God wants Abaeze to grow to learn more
about Him by reading his Bibles, by praying, worshiping Him, fellowshipping
with other believers, and sharing his faith with his friends and
6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
There are some people that have no desire to learn
more about God, these people are like the seeds that fall on the
path. Let’s spend some time holding our seed and asking God
to make our hearts fertile ground for the Jesus seed that was just
planted in our hearts.
1. Praise to God for the opportunity to be able to hear His Word
and learn from it.
2. Thank Him for "Planting the Jesus seed," in our hearts
and ask the Holy Spirit to help everyone during the week to think
about Jesus planted in their heart like a seed, water it by reading
3. Safety and health for the children.
4. That others may see Jesus in our lives.
