In July, we will be studying Uniqueness.

Uniqueness is a reflection of the character of God.  

In Deuteronomy 6:4, Moses tells the Israelites, “Israel, listen to me. The LORD is our God. The LORD is the one and only God.” (NIrV)

No one is like our God. And God created people in His image. Every single person on earth is unique. We have DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made.    

Only Jesus could rescue us.

Jesus, as the Son of God, was fully God and fully man. No one else before or since has been able to make that claim. Jesus was uniquely positioned to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. He alone could live the perfect life, die a human death, yet be raised to life again. And because of that, we can now experience a renewed relationship with God and live with Him forever.

Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, we think it’s important for us to help our kids and families discover more about what that means. This month, we take a closer look at the idea of uniqueness—discovering who God made you to be so you can make a difference.

Our Memory Verse for July comes from Ephesians 2:10.

In Ephesians 2:10, we read, We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do. (NIrV) God has a plan for each of us. He invites us into the work He’s been doing in the world since the beginning of time to bring people to Him. God made us to be part of that!

As we help kids discover more about the way God uniquely created them, we’ll look at some people in the Bible and find out how God used their uniqueness to help Him change the world.
