Running the Race

Bible Text:

Hebrews 13:5b

Materials You Need:

Enough mugs for your class.
Drinking Chocolate or other energy drink.
Sugar and milk.

Age Group:

Grades 4 - 8 (10 to 14 years).


Jesus is always with us and ready to help us.


I'm a winner!


Today we are celebrating!  You are all great athletes and so I am going to share my running aid with you.

( Make some Drinking Chocolate while you talk about Jesus being our Running Mate and that His strength is our Running Aid! )

Running Aid:

Are you a great athlete?  In Bible times they also had the Olympic Games which was held in Greece.  If you won a race they would present you with a laurel wreath and place it around your neck.  Well, Jesus wants us to be great runners too.  To run well, you need to have plenty on energy.  And so today I'm making you some Drinking Chocolate.  It's a great running aid, so come and get some!

Running Mate:

When you train to be an athlete and run long distances, it is good to have a running mate.  He or she will run next to you and encourage you to keep on going and not give up when you get tired.  We all have a Heavenly "Running Mate" and His name is Jesus!  He is with us always, and that's the best Running Mate you will ever find!  In Hebrews 13:15b, Jesus promised this:

"I will never leave you, nor forsake you."

Great Athletes:

The Drinking Chocolate was good wasn't it?  It gave you lots of energy, so it's a great running aid.  And Jesus wants to give you His blessing each day, and that's our Heavenly "Running Aid".

Do you want a Running Mate and some Running Aid?  Ask Jesus now to bless, strengthen, be with you and help you every day, because He loves you dearly!

God bless.
