Read Luke 9:36 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever kept a secret for someone?
Parent Note: God had revealed His plan for salvation to these disciples. They were ready to hear and understand this message, but the rest of the world was not. The time for this plan and what it meant to humanity was not yet ready to be revealed, and the disciples were asked to keep this knowledge to themselves until it was time to tell the rest of the world.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for temporarily giving up Your right as God and humbling Yourself to be our Savior.
Help us to place our trust in You as the One who saves. Help us to trust and obey Your words as the final authority. Help us to understand and be encouraged by Your everlasting love.
In Your name we pray, Amen.
