Want to teach kids about following Jesus? Then download these original Gospel coloring pages.

Choose one download format below or scroll down to choose each page individually.
The inspiration for this work came from two places. First, we love the “Who Will Be King” booklet for kids. Second, we took direction from the older protestant catechisms about the Kingly Office of Christ.

Page One: Who is my King?
The series begins by asking the children to look into their own hearts & minds. Where do they get their values? Who are they serving and trying to please with their lives? This coloring pages shows some different ‘kings’ that people often follow besides Jesus. There are two versions, one featuring a girl and the other featuring a boy.
Page Two: Why do I need a King?
Sometimes we don’t do a good job teaching children why we need Jesus. This coloring sheet highlights our need for someone to give us protection and direction in life. This is important because only King Jesus can solve the problems raised in this illustration.
Page Three: What makes Jesus the best King?
This one highlights the power of Jesus to overcome sin, his wisdom to guide us, and his victory over Satan. Each of those themes are God’s provisions for our need after the Fall. The crown represent Christ and the thorns remind us of his suffering on the cross.
Page Four: How do I follow Jesus as my King?
This final illustration helps children to respond to this truth about King Jesus. They will learn to respond by loving Jesus and obeying his commands. Like all our pages this one is free to use in your church, home, or school. This sheet pictures both boys and girls.
