Lesson Review – Luke 9:18-27 – Take Up Your Cross


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Luke 9:18-27 – Take Up Your Cross.

This is lesson 23 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 101 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 23 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Because Jesus paid the penalty for our sin by dying on the cross, giving us an eternal treasure in our right relationship with God, we are now free to follow Jesus no matter what the cost (we can “take up our cross”).

The Lesson In A Sentence

While our salvation is a gift from God that we cannot earn by our works, there is a real cost to following Jesus.

Questions For You Kids

Jesus asked his disciples a question. Do you remember what the question was?

He asked them “Who do you say I am?”

What answer did the disciples give?

The disciples replied with what other people said. Some thought he was Elijah, some thought John the Baptist, and others thought he was one of the prophets of old. But, Peter said that Jesus was “the Christ of God” meaning that Jesus was the savior of the world.

Jesus told his disciple about something that was going to happen to him. What was it?

That he was going to die and then rise again on the third day.

Jesus told his disciples that they needed to do something. What was it?

The disciples needed to deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Jesus.

What does it mean to “take up your cross” and follow Jesus?

It means that more than anything in this world, we should follow Jesus. When we do this, people won’t always like us or what we have to say. Some people even die because they follow Jesus (this was covered with the older kids). But, no matter what, we are called to follow Jesus, even when it is hard. We should love and treasure him more than anything else.
