12.27.15    

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

JESUS IS COMING BACK

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

BOOK OF REVELATION

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”

JOHN 14:6

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like a revelation, God showed us His plan for salvation in His son, Jesus.

 

BOTTOM LINE:

Jesus will come back.

 

TABLE TALK: 

Open your bibles to today’s memory verse. Read it together as a family.

What do you think Jesus was trying to tell the people in this verse?

How does it feel to know that forgiveness from Jesus is free? 

If forgiveness is free, does that mean we can sin as much as we want? (See Romans 6:1-2)

How can we please Jesus with our life? 

 

AFFIRMATION:

To affirm someone is to tell them what you know to be true about them. We can see affirmation used to uplift people in Scripture. (ex: Paul’s letters to the churches; see Philemon 1:4-7). 

 

Take this time to encourage each member of your family through affirmation. 

How do you see them becoming more like Jesus? What makes you thankful for them? Share these things with one another now as a family.

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank you for your Word

You are trustworthy and loving

Please help me to use the life you gave me to share your gospel

In Jesus’ name, amen
