  2. 2. Trivia Questions!! How did Hezekiah show he wanted to obey God? How did the people show they wanted to obey God? When Hezekiah became proud, how did God show Hezekiah that his actions were wrong?
  3. 3. Story – Hezekiah Turns Away From Sin Hezekiah was one of the kings of Judah. His father, Ahaz, had been a very evil king; he disobeyed God all of his life and worshiped the false gods and idols of the countries around him. Hezekiah did not want to be like his father. As soon as he became king, he repaired the doors of God’s Temple and opened the Temple again. He called all the men whose families had served in the Temple and told them to get ready to serve God again. They cleaned the Temple and got it ready for people to worship God again.
  4. 4. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin When the Temple was ready, Hezekiah sent letters and messengers to everyone in Judah and in Israel, too. He invited everyone to come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. People began to get excited as they heard the news. On the day the Passover began, there was a large crowd of people in Jerusalem. For the first time in a LONG time, people from Israel and Judah worshiped God together in the way He told them to. Everyone was happy; they enjoyed celebrating God’s goodness so much that they celebrated for another whole week!
  5. 5. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin Then a wonderful thing happened. After this great celebration, the people of Israel and Judah decided to get rid of the idols and false gods they had been worshiping. They cleaned up the places where people worshied false gods. The people were going to worship ONLY the one true God!
  6. 6. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin Because Hezekiah led his people in doing what was right, God made life peaceful and good for the people of Judah. The Bible tells that King Hezekiah rebuilt many walls and towers in Jerusalem. He built a long tunnel system to bring water into the city and built buildings for storing the extra food from the good harvests.
  7. 7. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin Even when the powerful king of Assyria and his army tried to destroy Judah and Jerusalem, Hezekiah told his men to be brave because God would help them. He and the prophet Isaiah prayed to God. And God sent an angel that got rid of the Sssyrian army for them—they didn’t even have to fight them!
  8. 8. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin Hezekiah obeyed God—most of his life. But even a good king like Hezekiah can do something wrong. Hezekiah became proud of all the good things he had. He enjoyed showing visitors all the fine things he owned. Hezekiah began to depend on his riches instead of trusting God.
  9. 9. Hezekiah Turns Away from Sin God’s prophet Isaiah warned Hezekiah that all his riches would one day be taken away. That got Hezekiah’s attention! He realized he had been proud– and he asked God to forgive him. He turned away from being proud and all the people of Judah and jerusalem asked God to forgive them, too. God brough peaceful, happy times again for the rest of the years of Hezekiah’s rule.

  13. 13. Verse 1: People waved palm branches one sunny day; People praised Jesus in many ways. Some sang songs, some clapped their hands, some shouted words of praise. Jesus rode in on a donkey, and Easter was on its way. Chorus: Easter means salvation, salvation means we win! Easter means salvation, salvation means Jesus died for our sins, He rose again, And we’ll live forever with Him! Verse 2: Jesus died on the cross one dark day. Jesus died for our sins; He is the way. He was buried, He came back to life—He rose from the grave! This is what we celebrate every Easter Day! CHORUS Verse 3: Jesus friends talked to Him on Easter Day; Jesus’ friends walked with Him and talked and prayed. Jesus went to heaven, sent His Spirit here to stay. We remember Jesus’ death and resurrection when we say: CHORUS
  14. 14. Verse 1: God’s love lives in me; God’s love lives in me. Now I can care for anyone in need, ‘cause God’s love lives in me. Verse 2: God’s power lives in me; God’s power lives in me. Now I can show God’s love in ev’ry deed, ‘Cause God’s power lives in me. Verse 3: God’s love lives in me; God’s love lives in me. Now I can show love in my family, ‘Cause God’s love lives in me. Verse 4: God’s power lives in me; God’s power lives in me. Now I have power to love my enemies, ‘Cause God’s love and power live in me.
  15. 15. Verse 1: Two thousand years ago, Jesus lived in the Middle East. His first job was a carpenter; Then He did a wonder at a wedding feast! Then He called His twelve disciples, “won’t you come follow Me? He was teaching crowds about God And making blind eyes see. Chorus: Jesus’ love is real; Jesus’ love is really real! It’s not a fairy tale. Jesus’ love is true; Jesus’ love is truly true! And if you know Him, you know that He loves you. Verse 2: Two thousand years ago, Jesus lived in the Middle East. He lived His life for God; And He gave His life for the very least. See in those days people left you out If you were sick or lame. But Jesus touched the sick and sad and made them whole again.
