LESSON 2: God’s Love

Verse link: Ephesians 5:2 – Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us…

The Point: God’s love puts others first.

Bible story: The sacrifice of Jesus

FAMILY FAITH

During the week ask your child if they can remember The Point or the Verse form Sunday’s lesson.

Ask these questions:

  1. Whose example of love should we follow?
  2. Do you know what sacrifice means?
  3. When is it difficult to put others first?

Family fun:

Make a list of good things/ways to serve others and put them in a hat. Each family members pulls out one thig and for the rest of the day (or the following day) they must do that thing. For example – never go first; greet everyone with a happy hello; offer to help with a shore you don’t usually do/like, etc.

Song of the week: My God, My Father – KidSpring Children’s Ministry

 

Pray together:

God, thank You for giving us Jesus. Thank you for the sacrifice he made to show us your love. Please help us to follow his example. [Add thanks and prayer requests for others.]

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
