00:08 Worship bells are sweet
00:10 Calling us to meet
00:12 With our best friend Jesus
00:16 Come and worship here
00:18 Jesus will be near
00:20 Smiling when He sees us
00:27 Hello and welcome to our Tiny Tots Worship.
00:30 Welcome, boys and girls!
00:33 We're so happy that you've joined us.
00:35 And do you know what?
00:36 Jesus is happy that you've joined us too.
00:39 It makes Jesus so happy
00:41 when we take the time to spend with Him.
00:44 Today, boys and girls,
00:46 our special guest is Pastor John Lomacang.
00:50 Welcome, Pastor John.
00:52 Welcome! Welcome.
00:53 It's good to be here.
00:54 I'm going to have a lot of fun telling this story.
00:57 I can't wait.
00:59 And I know today, boys and girls,
01:01 we're talking about "Be Like Jesus".
01:04 And I know your story is going to help give us ideas
01:08 on how we can all be more like Jesus.
01:10 All right. I love stories.
01:11 Well, first... I love stories too.
01:13 Oh, I'm glad. Me too.
01:15 But first, let's have a prayer
01:17 and invite Jesus into our worship.
01:20 Christiana, could you pray for us today?
01:22 Close your eyes and fold your hands,
01:24 boys and girls.
01:25 Dear Jesus, help us to be like Jesus.
01:29 Help us to have a good worship.
01:30 Amen. Amen.
01:34 Well, Pastor John, on Tiny Tots, we like to sing.
01:39 So today, since our theme is Be Like Jesus,
01:42 I thought we'd sing,
01:44 "I have decided to be like Jesus".
01:47 That's a good song. So sing with us.
01:48 And sing with us, boys and girls.
01:51 I have decided to be like Jesus
01:57 I have decided to be like Jesus
02:04 I have decided to be like Jesus
02:10 No turning back, no turning back
02:16 Do you know what that means when we say no turning back?
02:20 It means that you can't turn back away from God
02:23 when you're already following Him.
02:25 That means... Wow, I like that.
02:26 we're making a decision.
02:27 That's exactly right.
02:29 We're making the decision to keep following Jesus
02:31 and to not be like Satan, huh?
02:35 Very good, Carter.
02:36 Let's sing that one more time.
02:39 I have decided to follow Jesus
02:45 I have decided to follow Jesus
02:52 I have decided to follow Jesus
02:58 No turning back,
03:01 no turning back
03:05 Let's sing "Be happy, be kind."
03:08 Because when we follow Jesus,
03:10 that's what we are, happy, aren't we?
03:12 And we're kind to everybody 'cause that's being like Jesus.
03:16 Be happy, be kind Be loving, be true
03:22 I'll meet you in heaven
03:26 And live next door to you
03:33 Well, we also like to learn memory verses
03:36 because it's really important to learn memory verses
03:39 from our Bible.
03:41 And who can tell me
03:42 where our memory verse is today?
03:44 Where is it found? Matthew.
03:45 Matthew. That's right.
03:47 Matthew 5:13.
03:50 I'll say it first,
03:51 and then you all say it with me, okay?
03:53 "You are the salt of the earth."
03:56 "You are the salt of the earth."
03:59 What do you think that means, boys and girls?
04:05 Well, since you like stories,
04:07 I think Pastor John's going to tell us what that means.
04:13 Well, boys and girls,
04:15 if you like to hear about what the salt is,
04:18 I got a dynamic, exciting story for you today.
04:21 And you know what? It happened to me.
04:24 I was in California on a nice, hot sunny day.
04:29 I was outside playing, running, playing basketball,
04:33 riding my bike,
04:35 and there were so many other boys and girls
04:37 doing the same...
04:39 Do you have a bike? Yeah.
04:40 Do you like to ride your bike? Yeah.
04:42 Do you play basketball? Do you like to play soccer?
04:45 What do you like to play?
04:47 I like to play basketball, too. Wow.
04:50 And what about...
04:51 Do you like to play, Joshua?
04:53 I like to play football.
04:54 Football. Wow.
04:55 You mean like soccer? You mean like regular football?
05:01 Do you like to play? We all like to play.
05:03 And I was so excited playing,
05:06 but I didn't know how hot it was.
05:07 It was almost 100 degrees.
05:10 Have you ever felt heat like that before?
05:13 No. No?
05:15 You don't know what it's like to be in 100-degree weather?
05:17 Well, when it's 100 degrees,
05:18 you'll know it because you'll start to sweat.
05:21 You ever sweat before?
05:23 It's just like water just comes down everywhere.
05:26 And you know, boys and girls, I was exhausted, I was tired,
05:30 I was breathing heavily.
05:32 Do you know how to breathe heavily?
05:34 Let's try it together.
05:37 I was so tired, and I was...
05:39 I'm thirsty, I'm hungry,
05:42 and I heard a bell in the distance,
05:44 and then I heard over the loud speaker,
05:46 "It's lunchtime, it's lunchtime."
05:51 Do you know what means?
05:53 What lunchtime means? What does lunchtime mean?
05:55 When we eat. It's time to do what?
05:56 Eat. Eat.
05:57 Do you like to eat? Me.
05:59 Man, I love food.
06:00 I may not look like it, but I love to eat.
06:02 Do you like to eat?
06:03 I like to eat...
06:05 Don't tell anybody, this is just between us.
06:07 I like potato chips too, you know.
06:10 And I like peanut butter and jelly.
06:12 And I didn't know what was going to happen
06:13 for lunch,
06:15 but I was hot, and I was thirsty,
06:17 and I was so glad they rang the lunch bell.
06:22 And you know what happened?
06:23 Everybody heard the lunch bell, it echoed everywhere.
06:26 Ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding.
06:29 Everywhere, we heard the lunch...
06:30 So everybody started walking toward the lunch room.
06:33 And there they were...
06:35 I had realized I was not the only one hot and sweaty,
06:38 there were other people.
06:39 Well, you know what happened?
06:41 I didn't get there quickly enough,
06:42 and there was a long line,
06:45 and remember, I was hot and thirsty.
06:49 Have you ever been thirsty before?
06:52 Let me see your thirsty look.
06:56 You know what thirsty means?
06:58 That means you need something to drink.
07:00 And the line was moving slowly, and people were...
07:03 I'm thinking,
07:04 "The food line looks so far away,
07:06 I can see the juice and the pies and the cakes
07:09 and the rice and the sandwiches."
07:12 And I couldn't wait to get there.
07:14 And so there, I was in line. And you know what?
07:16 After about it seemed like forever,
07:18 I finally got to the food line.
07:21 And I picked up...
07:22 The first thing I picked up, guess what it was?
07:25 Do you think it was food or a drink?
07:26 Which one do you think it was? Drink.
07:28 That's right.
07:29 And it was a big cup of grape juice.
07:33 You've ever had grape juice before?
07:35 What kind of juice do you like?
07:38 Do you like apple juice? Uh-huh.
07:39 You've ever had an orange juice before?
07:41 Do you like apple, Christiana? Yeah, apple juice.
07:42 You like grape? Apple juice.
07:44 She likes grape juice. Grape juice.
07:45 I like grape juice.
07:47 You know what happens with grape juice though,
07:48 if you spill it, it just stains everything.
07:49 Kind of like that color right there.
07:51 Anyway, I got my grape juice, I got a slice of pizza,
07:56 they had little corn dogs, and chips...
07:59 I love corn dog. And salad.
08:01 Am I making you hungry yet?
08:03 And I went and got my tray,
08:04 and I went, and I looked in the cafeteria,
08:06 and there were people everywhere.
08:08 And I stood up, seemed like forever,
08:10 looking for a place to sit.
08:12 I finally found a spot, and I took my tray over there,
08:16 picked up my long legs,
08:18 climbed into the bench and sat down.
08:19 And when I sat down, I looked at my tray,
08:21 and I realized, I didn't have a fork,
08:23 I didn't have a knife, I didn't have any napkins.
08:26 But I had my grape juice, I had my pie,
08:29 I had my slice of pizza
08:30 and my corn dogs and my potato salad
08:34 and my chips.
08:36 But I needed a knife and a fork,
08:37 and I needed some napkins.
08:38 So I got up,
08:40 and I went to get my knife and fork and napkins.
08:43 And I came back,
08:45 and everybody was still sitting there,
08:46 everybody was eating.
08:48 They already had said their grace.
08:49 And they were eating,
08:50 so I said, "Well, it's my turn to eat."
08:52 So I just climbed back in my seat,
08:53 put my long legs over the bench and sat down there,
08:57 and I was so thirsty.
08:59 Instead of eating something first, guess what I did?
09:03 Drink something.
09:04 And what do you think I drank?
09:06 Grape juice. The grape juice.
09:08 This big purple glass of cold ice-filled grape juice.
09:15 Did that make you thirsty?
09:16 Right about now, I could have some grape juice.
09:18 Anyway, I was so thirsty, I picked up my grape juice,
09:23 and I went...
09:26 And I heard people smirking.
09:27 You know what smirking is? Kind of like giggling.
09:30 Kind of like giggling and laughing.
09:32 And when I swallowed, I went...
09:41 This is what happened.
09:42 I said, "Who put salt in my grape juice?"
09:45 And then everybody busted out laughing.
09:48 They were giggling and pointing at me.
09:50 And you know what happened?
09:52 When I went to get my knife and fork and napkin,
09:54 somebody emptied the salt shaker
09:56 in my grape juice.
10:00 Isn't that horrible? My grape juice was ruined.
10:02 And you know what? Now I was really thirsty.
10:05 Well, I took my long legs, I got up,
10:08 and I ran toward the water fountain.
10:10 And I kept yelling, "I need water!
10:13 I need water! Get out of my way."
10:15 'Cause, man, they emptied the salt
10:16 into my grape juice.
10:18 And I came back,
10:19 and I realized everybody was laughing,
10:21 and I sat and said, "Who did that?"
10:22 And I found out who did that, it was just so funny.
10:25 But you know what?
10:26 I didn't want my grape juice anymore, I wanted water.
10:33 And then all of a sudden, it came to me.
10:35 I was thirsty, I needed water, somebody put salt,
10:40 and all of a sudden in my mind,
10:42 I thought about a verse in the Bible
10:45 that says, "You are the salt of the earth."
10:49 Say that with me.
10:50 "You are the salt of the earth."
10:53 And somebody once said to me...
10:56 You know what salt does? What does salt do?
10:59 Think about it. What does salt do?
11:01 It makes you thirsty. Huh.
11:03 It makes you thirsty. And it's sour.
11:06 And it's pretty sour though,
11:08 but that's why it makes you thirsty.
11:09 And then I remembered,
11:11 Jesus said, "You are the salt of the earth."
11:15 And all of a sudden, I understood what Jesus meant.
11:19 You know what He means when He says
11:20 we are the salt of the earth?
11:23 It means we are just like Him.
11:25 Now what happens...
11:27 Don't forget what happens if you have a lot of salt,
11:30 what do you need?
11:31 Water. Water.
11:33 And you know what? Jesus is the water of life.
11:37 And, boys and girls, this is what I learned.
11:40 When we are kind...
11:41 Say that with me.
11:43 When we are kind and loving and nice...
11:48 And when we smile and are happy,
11:52 we are the salt of the earth.
11:54 And then all of a sudden, people see Jesus in us,
11:57 and they all of a sudden, want to be like Him.
12:00 And you know what happens when you're thirsty?
12:02 What do you need? Water.
12:04 And Jesus is the water that will quench our thirst.
12:07 So here's the lesson, boys and girls,
12:09 if ever you meet someone, and you want to share Jesus,
12:13 you ought to make them thirsty, and this is how you do it.
12:16 You'll be kind... Say that.
12:18 You'll be kind... You'll be kind...
12:19 And loving... And loving.
12:21 And just smile,
12:23 and they would want to be just like the Jesus that's in you.
12:26 Don't forget that.
12:27 You are the salt of the earth. Salt of the earth.
12:32 What do we say to Pastor John?
12:33 Thank you.
12:35 Oh, you're welcome. I enjoyed myself.
12:37 And does that not make you want to all be like Jesus?
12:41 It does, doesn't it?
12:43 Well, right now, let's sing our prayer song.
12:46 And let's thank Jesus for being with us in our worship.
12:51 I will bend my knees
12:55 I will fold my hands
12:59 I will bow my head I will close my eyes
13:06 And very, very quiet be
13:11 While the prayer is said
13:15 Dear Jesus, thank you that we got to have a good worship.
13:19 Thank you that we're the salt of the earth,
13:21 and please help us to be kind to others and loving.
13:24 And I love you, Jesus, and amen.
13:30 Mr. Rooster! It's Mr. Rooster!
13:32 Oh, that's all the time we have for now, boys and girls.
13:35 Until next time, remember, Jesus loves you.
