July 26 Recap & Devotional


07.26.15    

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

DANIEL & THE LIONS

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

DANIEL 6

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:    

“Say with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord.’ Believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved.” - ROMANS 10:9

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like God rescued Daniel from the lions, He rescues us from sin through Jesus.

 

BOTTOM LINE:

God rescues us from sin and death.

 

TABLE TALK:

Open up your bible to Daniel 6. Read it out loud together.

Last week we talked about the men in the fiery furnace. How is this week’s story similar? How is it different?

Can you think of a time that it was hard for you to honor God? What happened?

Daniel honored God even when he felt unsafe. Why is it important to honor God?

Read today’s memory verse out loud. How does this verse apply to today’s bible story?

 

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 rescuing me

You are the most loving Father 

Please help me to have faith, even when I am afraid

In Jesus’ name, amen

 

 

THIS MONTH’S FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT: GOODNESS

 

As a family, go through the following questions…

Talk about ways that God has been good in your life.

How can you show other people God’s goodness?

How can we see God’s goodness in this story?
