A CITY ON A HILL

TEXT: Matthew 5:14-16

MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 5:14 “you are the Light of the world. A city that is set on a hill
cannot be hid.”

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
1. To let the children know that they cannot be hidden, they are a city on a hill.
2. You must let your light shine.

CENTRAL TRUTH
You are a city on a hill.

INTRODUCTION
Can you hide a city that is sitting on top of a hill? Its light at night can be seen for miles. I
once traveled to Abeokuta in Ogun State and I saw some houses on rocks. Right from the
house on top of the rock you can see the whole of the town. If we live for Christ, we will glow
like lights, showing others what Christ is like. We hide our lights by (1) Being quiet when we
should speak, (2) going along with the crowd, (3) denying the light, (4) letting sin dim our light;
(5) not explaining our light to others or (6) ignoring the needs of others. Is a beacon of truth
don’t shut your light off from the rest of the world?

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS
1. A city on a hill could be described as a city on a very high place. It is visible to anyone from
any angle. That is you can see it from anywhere.
2. It does not have any secret and therefore anybody can talk or give comment about it.
3. The city on a hill is close to heaven (Matthew 6:19-21). Therefore it is difficult for
enemies to attack them.
4. They don’t sin because everyone will easily recognize them.
5. It is close to receive blessings. Isaiah 41:18.

LIFE APPLICATION
You are the city on the hill and your life must attract others. You should not play with sin
because people will easily recognize you and by so doing you are bringing shame to god’s
name. Anytime you sin or do something bad all eyes would be on you.

CONCLUSION
Let your light shine by being full of good works.

INVITATION
Accept the Lord Jesus into your heart and you will be a city on a hill.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. How can you let your light shine? By being full of good works.
2. What can him your light from shining? Sin.
3. What is sin? Disobedience to God
4. Give examples of sin. Stealing, fighting, telling lies, disobedience to parents and
teachers, getting angry. Etc.
5. Say the Memory Verse.

BE BORN AGAIN – PART 1

3. Children should be exposed to the reality of Heaven and Hell.

CENTRAL TRUTH
All have sinned.

INTRODUCTION
Star the lesson a song:
Jesus said to Nicodemus: you must be born again.

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS
1. At night a ruler of the Jews came to Jesus (John 3:1)
2. This same man though educated yet lacks the knowledge of salvation John 3:2.
3. Jesus told him except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3.
4. Nicodemus did not understand the saying of our Lord Jesus and Jesus explained to
him. John 3: 4-15.
5. To be born again is to confess and forsake one’s sins and accepting Christ as one’s
Lord and Personal Saviour. To enter the kingdom of God the requirements are repentance and
spiritual rebirth. John 3:5.

APPLICATION
God is a merciful and loving Father who does not want anyone to perish. God paid dearly with
the life of his Son, the highest price he could pay. Jesus accepted our punishment, paid the
price for our sins, and then offered us the new life he bought for us. Jesus died for all.
Confess your sins today and let him come into your heart.

INVITATION
Only those who give their lives to Christ will enter into the Kingdom of God. So give him
your life today tomorrow may be too late.

CHALLENGES
Nicodemus was a learned teacher but he still came to Jesus to be taught. No matter how
intelligent and well educated you are, you must come to Jesus with an open mind and heart so
he can teach you the truth about God. Knowledge is not salvation. You should know the Bible,
but even more important, you should understand the God it reveals and the salvation He
offers.

Being reborn makes you spiritually alive and puts you in God’s family. Have you asked Jesus
Christ to make you a new person? This fresh start in life is available to all who believe in
Christ.

CHALLENGES
Jesus is the Son of God and by believing in Him we may have eternal life. John the Baptist
tells us about Jesus. If you have received Jesus you must tell others too.

INVITATION

BE HONESTTEXT: Matthew 23:24:27

MEMORY VERSE: 2 Corinthians 8:21 “Providing for honest things; not only in the sight of the
Lord, but also in the sight of men.”

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
That each child school be able to:-
• Define the term honesty
• Explain Jesus attitude towards honesty.
• Demonstrate honesty as a Christian virtue in his/her interaction with others.

INTRODUCTION
Children what does it mean to be honest? (Allow the children to respond). To be honest. Means to tell the truth, not lying, cheating or stealing. It also means to be sincere. Can you remember our last lesson? Be sincere. Ask the children questions on that Lesson.

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS
1. The lesson started with Jesus rebuking the dishonest attitudes of the Scribes and
the Pharisees by calling them blind guides Matthew 23:24.
2. Jesus further rebuked the Pharisees and the Scribes for only taking their time to
take care of the outward appearance while neglecting the inward vices. Matthew 23:25-26.
3. Christ referred to the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites and Sinners. Matthew 23:27.

LIFE APPLICATION
Jesus condemned the Pharisees and religious leaders for appearing saintly and holy outwardly but inwardly remaining full of corruption and greed. Living our Christianity merely as a show for others is like washing a cup on the outside only. God wants us to be clean on the inside as well as on the outside.

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
Honesty is one of the many attributes of God. However, a man cannot attain God’s kind of honesty without first of all having a relationship with Him. To have a relationship with the Lord, you simply confess your sins, repent of them, determine not to go back to them and invite the Lord Jesus into your life.

CONCLUSION
To be honest is to be truthful in all we do. Both outwardly and inwardly.

CHALLENGE
God expects us to be honest in all we do. We must not be like the Pharisees who were dishonest.
Those who are dishonest would not enter the kingdom of God.

INVITATION
The Pharisees were ceremonially clean on the outside but they had corrupt hearts. Jesus was
not in their hearts, that is why they were dishonest. Have you asked Jesus today? John 1:12.
He is the one who can help you to be honest (Teacher to lead the children in Salvation Prayer).

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. In our lesson today who were the people that were not sincere? The Pharisees and the
Sadducees.

residue. How many of you would want more of a food that has no taste? Nobody.

says if Christians lose their distinctive saltiness, they become worthless. Just as salt flavours
and preserves food, we are to preserve the good in the world, help keep it from spoiling,
and bring new flavor to life. Being salty is not easy, but if a Christian fails in this function,
he fails to represent Christ in the world. How salty are you?

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
To be salty you must have Jesus in your life. He is the one that can help you to be salty.

CONCLUSION

the good in the world and help keep it from spoiling by creating spiritual thirst and

BE SINCERETEXT: Matthew 16:6-12

MEMORY VERSE: 2 Corinthians 8:21 “Providing for honest things; not only in the sight of the
Lord, but also in the sight of men.”

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
1. To teach the Children know that they must be sincere in everything they do.
2. They should not be hypocrites like the Pharisees and Sadducees but they should be sincere as Jesus.
3. To let the children know that a little evil can affect a large group of people.

CENTRAL TRUTH
Sincerity is a must for every child of God.

INTRODUCTION
Children what does it mean to be sincere? (Allow the children to respond). It means not to pretend, to be genuine, and to say things you really mean or believe. It also means to be honest. Every child of God should imitate Jesus who is always sincere in all his acts.

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS
1. Jesus gave the warning of being sincere, one should not be deceitful. Matthew 16:6.
2. The disciples did not understand what Jesus was saying they thought He was referring to their failure to bring bread. Matthew 16:7.
3. Jesus rebuked His disciples for not having faith to comprehend what He was saying
concerning the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees which means their false doctrines –
Matthew 16:8-12.

LIFE APPLICATION
The Pharisees and Sadducees were a set of people who were full of deceit and untruthful. The
Bible recorded that they love to pray in the public for them to be recognized and when they give
they make it known, which suppose not to be. They are insincere in all their doings. Therefore, as children of God, you should not be like these people but rather be like Jesus. You should say yes when you are suppose to say yes and you shouldn’t deceive your friends. Be faithful in your assignment and your examinations; do not cheat during exams and by doing all these you are telling others that you are a true child of God.

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
A little evil can affect so many people; therefore we must be sincere like Jesus. If Jesus
is in your heart, you will be sincere, but if Jesus is not in your heart you cannot be
sincere, like the Pharisees and Sadducees. So let Jesus come into your life.

CONCLUSION
Jesus Christ is our Model. Be sincere in all you do like Jesus Christ.

CHALLENGE
When Jesus Christ was telling His disciples to be careful of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees, they didn’t understand but Jesus rebuked them and later explained to them. So also you as a child of God, for the fact that others in your class are cheating, lying, stealing etc you should not join them rather rebuke them with love as Jesus did to His disciples and tell them about Jesus that they should be sincere as Jesus.

INVITATION
To be sincere you need Jesus. Ask Jesus into your heart today and He would help you to be
sincere in all you do. (Teachers to lead the children in Salvation Prayer).

one, and love the other.”

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
Each child should be able to:-
1. Realize that he or she cannot serve two masters.
2. Choose Jesus Christ as his/her master.

CENTRAL TRUTH
You cannot serve two Masters.

INTRODUCTION
You cannot serve God and Money. You must choose whom you will serve either God or money?

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS
1. No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one. And love the other; or else
he will hold to one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Luke 16:13.
2. The Pharisees who heard these things were covetous and they derided Jesus. Luke 16:14.
3. If you justify yourself before men, God knows your heart, what is highly esteemed
among men is an abomination in the sight of God. Luke 16:15.

LIFE APPLICATION
Money has the power to take God’s place in your life. It can become your master. Money is a
hard master and a deceptive one. Money promises power and control, it cannot deliver. No
amount of money can provide health, happiness, or eternal life. It is better to let God be
your master. His servants have peace of mind and security both now and forever.

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
1. To let the children know that God wants us to help the poor.
2. To let the children know that there would always be poor people.

CENTRAL TRUTH
God expects the rich to help the poor.

INTRODUCTION
God is the creator of the rich and the poor. God cares for all God expects the rich to help
the poor. How many of you have seen a poor beggar before? Even little children go about
begging? Should we laugh at the poor? No we should help them.

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS

16:19-20.
2. The rich man did not help Lazarus, who was full of sores and the dog licked his
sores. Luke 16:21.
3. And so it was that the beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s
bossom, the rich man also died and was taken to hell. Luke 16:22-23a.
4. The rich man saw Lazarus a far off where he was in Abraham’s bosom, he cried for
water to cool his tongue but there was no help in hell. Luke 16:24.

and Lazarus evil things, but now he is comforted and you are tormented.
6. The rich man was also told that there was a great gulf fixed, so that those who want
to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from where he was pass to them.

LIFE APPLICATION
The rich man did not go to hell because of his wealth but because he was selfish with it. He
refused to feed Lazarus, take him in, or care for his health. He was hardhearted in spirit of his
great blessings. The amount of money we have is not as important as the way we use it. What
is your attitude toward your money and possessions? Do you hoard them selfishly for yourself,
or do you use them to help others?

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
If we don’t help the poor it would be counted as sin against us and one would end up in hell
like the rich man.

selfish with what we have.

of God in us, we would want to help the poor. Have you received Jesus in your life? He is the
one who can give you the grace to help the poor.

was not in his thinking at all. God expects us to serve Him with whatever He gives us. God is our creator, he owns our life. God gave us life and He can take it back anytime, so therefore we
should appreciate God by giving back to Him whatever He gives us. Because all we have come
from God.

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
Be rich toward God, because God is the giver of life. He gave us all things. He gave us His
only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Saviour. John 3:16.

CONCLUSION
God is our model giver. He gave us life and He gave us all things, so we must give back to God in appreciation of what He has given us. We must be rich towards God, who gave us all things.

CHALLENGE
Be rich toward God. Give to God generously. Don’t think of yourself only and give to the
work of God.

INVITATION
The rich man did not know Jesus that was why God was not in His thinking at all; he was not rich toward God. If Jesus is in your heart, you would be rich toward God. Have you asked Jesus into your heart? Revelations 3:20. Do so today and you would be rich towards God. Greed would be far away from you.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. When God given us more than we need what should we do? We should think of how we can
give to God.

CENTRAL TRUTH:
Tell others about Jesus.

TEACHER’S OBJECTIVE
1. Children should know the good news.
2. Children should be able to tell others the good news.

INTRODUCTION
Jesus told his disciples to go into all the world telling everyone that He paid the penalty for sin
and that those who believe in Him can be forgiven and live eternally with God. This is the
Good News; it is also called the gospel. Christian disciples today in all parts of the world
are preaching this Gospel to people who haven’t heard it. In our Bible text today a woman
was a witness for Jesus Christ and through her many people believed in Jesus. God wants
us to tell the Good News to others too.

Introduce the lesson by teaching the children the following song (Make sure the song is
visualized)

Stop and let me tell you,
What the Lord has done for me (2x)
He forgave my sin and
He saved my soul,
He cleansed my heart and
He made me whole,
Stop and let me tell you,
What the Lord has done for me.

Go and tell the story,
Of the Christ of Calvary (2X)
He’ll forgive their sins,
He will save their souls,
He’ll cleanse their hearts
He will make them whole,
Go and tell the story
Of the Christ of Calvary.

7. God and tell others the Good News like this woman of Samaria.

LIFE APPLICATION
The Samaritan woman immediately shared her experience with others. Despite her reputation,
many took her invitation and came out to meet Jesus. Perhaps there are sins in our past of
which we are ashamed, but Christ changes us. As people see these changes, they become
curious; use these opportunities to introduce them to Christ.

MESSAGE OF SALVATION
Jesus died for our sins, He was buried but He arose on the third day. Those who believe in
Him can be forgiven and live eternally with God. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). This is the Good News.

Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16.

Christ unto him.

Philip (1) followed the spirit’s leading, (2) began the discussion from where the man was
(immersed in the prophecies of Isaiah), and (3) Explained how Jesus Christ fulfilled
Isaiah’s prophecies. When we share the Gospel, we should start where the other person’s
concerns are focused. Then we can bring the Gospel to bear on those concerns.

When teaching the Memory verse let the children know that the Gospel means Good News and
every opportunity we have we should share it with others.

INVITATION
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Romans 3:23; “The wages of sin is death
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23. Confess your
