TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

MOSES & THE BURNING BUSH

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

EXODUS 3

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:    

“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God. I will be honored among the nations. I will be honored in the earth.’"

PSALM 46:10

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like Moses delivered people from physical captivity, Jesus delivers people from captivity to sin. 

 

BOTTOM LINE:

God is our rescuer.

 

 

TABLE TALK:

Open a bible to today’s passage. Read it out loud as a family.

What happened when Moses was a baby? Why did God save him?

What did Moses say when God told him that He had a plan for Moses’ life?

Does God have a plan for your life?

Read today’s memory verse out loud. What do you think that means? 

How can you show that you trust God? 

 

 

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 salvation

You are full of grace and mercy

Please help me to turn from sin and follow You

In Jesus’ name, amen
