October 5 Recap & Devotional

BIBLE STORY:
THE MIRACULOUS CATCH // JESUS CALLS HIS DISCIPLES

 

BIBLE PASSAGE: MATTHEW 4:18-22

 

BOTTOM LINE:
God wants us to share the gospel with everyone.

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:
“‘Come. Follow me,’ Jesus said. ‘I will make you fishers of people.’” - MATTHEW 4:19

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:
Like the fishermen called to be disciples, Jesus calls us to tell the world about him.

 

TABLE TALK:
What did Jesus ask the fishermen to do? How is that like what he wants us to do?
What did the fishermen do? (Matt. 4:20) Should we do what Jesus says right away?
Have you ever told someone about Jesus (a friend, neighbor, etc.)? What happened? Why is it important for us to share the gospel?

 

FAMILY PRAYER:
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

Dear God, thank you calling me out of my sin
You are merciful and gentle
Please help me to use my life to tell others about you In Jesus’ name, amen
