David the Psalmist (Psalm 23)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: There is rest in the presence of the Lord.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The Lord is our shepherd
2. The Lord calms our fears
3. The Lord saves us from our sins
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Read Psalm 23:6.
There is only one way any of us could enjoy God’s mercy and live in heaven with him forever. God sent Jesus, his only Son, to die on the cross for our sin. Now all those who trust in Jesus are forgiven and get to live in the house of God (in heaven) forever. Jesus is the way God kept the promises David sang about. If we trust in Jesus we can live forever in heaven. One day, everyone who goes to heaven will meet David, the man who wrote Psalm 23.
When David sang, “The Lord is my shepherd,” he was exactly right. Hundreds of years later, when Jesus began his ministry, he said, “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep” (John 10:14–15).
