Announcing Christ Kids and a Devotion on Super Tuesday
[Editor’s Note: Kids can use Christian resources as much as adults. Browse the ChristNow website for free stuff for your kids, starting with Christ Kids.]
Ephesians 6:4 says, “Don’t exasperate your children … Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master.”
If Jesus is the greatest hope for your child—and he is—then a diminished vision of Jesus is the greatest crisis for your child.
Even in our churches our children can inadvertently end up treating Jesus as if he is only a:
- Mere human who was born, helped people, and died
- Great teacher with good stories but who has little relevance for now
- Savior envisioned as still hanging on the cross
- Once-risen Lord with minimal power or authority today
- Soon-coming king who is not a currently active king
What if instead we taught our children the exciting message about the greatness of who Jesus is right now, such as:
- His ascension to the right hand of the Father as ruler of the universe
- His supremacy over all things and its implications for daily living
- What he’s up to right now, active among his people and the nations
- How he wants to actively involve us in the fullness of his reigning life
Frequently, truths like these can help our children complete the picture of ALL Jesus is at this very moment—who he is now, not only who he was on Earth—and change their outlook on him and their relationship to him as a result.
This is why we launched Christ Kids. We want to help your children know Jesus in the majesty of his spectacular supremacy.

Devotion on Super Tuesday
Since it’s Super Tuesday in the United States, here’s a devotion from the Kids Daily Christ Reader called “The Super King.” Let’s not forget who’s over all governments and candidates. Even on Super Tuesday, Jesus is the Super King!
The Super King
“On [Christ’s] robe…was written the name: ‘King of kings and Lord of lords.’” – Revelation 19:16 (GNT)
If you were a king or queen for the day, what would you do? Would you eat ice cream sundaes for every meal?
Make everyone wear pajamas for the whole day? Would you cancel school? Kings and queens have the power to do anything they want. It sounds fun, doesn’t it?
Throughout history, there have been lots of kings and queens. They have commanded armies, taken over lands, and gained great riches. There have been good kings who helped their people and bad kings who hurt their people. Whether good or bad, they still had lots of power.
In the Bible, Revelation 19:16 says that on Christ’s robe is written, “King of kings and Lord of lords.” Of all the kings that ever lived, Jesus is the Super King. He always helps his people. Jesus will always have more power, more armies, more lands, and more riches than any other king. And because he’s the Super King, every king and queen will bow to him.
Heavenly Father, I honor Jesus as the Super King. There is no greater king than he. Amen.
