April 10 Recap & Devotional


04.10.16 

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

MOSES & THE BURNING BUSH

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

EXODUS 3

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:    

“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” - John 8:58

 

 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 was strange about the bush that Moses saw?
  • How did Moses react when God spoke to him? How do you think you would react if you were Moses?
  • God told Moses that He wanted to save the people who were suffering in Egypt. Does God care when you’re hurt, sad, or in trouble? How do you know?
  • What did Moses say when God shared His plan with him? (see verses 11-12) 
  • How does it feel to be a part of God’s plan? 

 

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
