ReNEWed YEAR!

Key Verse: “For the Son of Man came to seek, and to save what was lost”

(Luke 19:10)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: People who know Jesus are God’s children

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child John 1:1-18) This passage was written by the Apostle John (not John the Baptist), who tells us that Jesus was “the Word”. In those times both the Hebrew and Greek cultures referred to God as the Word (or logos). Therefore, they understood that Jesus was God in man form, and he came to do the work of God here on Earth! It is also stated that Jesus did not simply begin to exist when he was born, he was here since creation! This passage establishes that Jesus was who he said he was!

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Tell your children about a favorite childhood memory. Then let each family member share a favorite memory, too. Explore the feelings behind those memories. For example, a family member might associate a favorite vacation with a sense of adventure, or a favorite book with a sense of love and comfort felt while he or she read it. Think of times God has provided those same feelings for you. Discuss ways your family can remember to think of God as a parent and rely on him.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
As a family make a list of all the people who you want to know about Jesus. Put it in a place where everyone can pray for them during the week. Pray that each person on the list will come to believe in Jesus.
