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: Jesus did miracles to show us He is God

(Open the bible and read to your child Luke 4:14 – 21) Jesus taught in the synagogues regularly, but in this particular instance he happened to read out of Isaiah. The reading of Isaiah 61:1-2 was not unusual, but what Jesus said after reading the passage was. Jesus proclaimed that he was the one the scriptures were talking about, he was the anointed one. This did not set well with some, especially those he grew up with. The idea of this hometown boy who was the son of a carpenter being the promised king that would free them from oppression just didn’t make sense. Jesus was not born into royalty or some rich king. However we know now that Jesus was the promised messiah, who came humbly to free us from the oppression of sin.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk about a time you felt lost or alone. Share how you felt when Jesus helped you or comforted you. What did Jesus do for you? How did you know that Jesus was helping you? Then talk about how Jesus came to earth and died for everyone’s sins. Encourage each family member to talk about what it means to him or her that Jesus came for all people.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Write a note to Jesus, thanking him for coming to earth to save you from your sins.
