A King for Israel (CSSA Junior Stage 2 Lesson 18)
The nation of Israel struggled with many of the same challenges that we are still faced with today. In a world that is all about the here and now it can be incredibly difficult to have faith in the unseen God. In this week’s lesson we learn about Israel’s failure to trust in the invisible God and be set apart as His chosen people.

Thanks to Kate B. for sharing these practical challenges.
Each week we hope to share a practical challenge that can be incorporated into the lesson or as homework.
Lesson 18 – Practical Challenge
The people of Israel looked at the nations around them and wanted to be like them. We need to remember not to look around us at the things the world has to offer, but remember that God is our king and that we are looking forward to the kingdom to come! The Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6v9-13 says “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth” – look it up and make it your prayer one night this week.
