Risen!

Key Verse: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”

(Romans 5:8)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: Because we are Christians we have Christ-like actions

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Luke 6:43-45) Jesus uses a metaphor about trees to explain how we naturally have Christ-like actions. Good trees bear good fruit while bad trees bear bad fruit. The comparison that Jesus uses is between fruit trees and thorns, not good fruit trees and bad fruit trees. It is the kind of tree that makes the difference. When we have our identity in Christ, we naturally produce Christ-like actions. When we do not have our identity in Christ it is impossible to produce Christ-like actions, even though we can still do good deeds.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk with your children about the kinds of actions that we have as a result of being a follower of Christ. You might focus on how a person treats others or how someone acts when no one is watching. Then share areas in your life where your actions are the result of being a Christian.  Encourage family members to think about one area in their lives that changed as a result of following Jesus.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
One night this week, have a fantastic dessert full of fruit! Serve strawberry shortcake, pineapple upside-down cake, and apple pie. Or if you have no time to bake, instead serve a simple variety of plain fruit. Cut up apples, bananas, and oranges, and serve the pieces with a fresh yogurt dip. As you enjoy your dessert, go around the table and let each person tell one way he or she has seen someone in the family bear good fruit during the week. Then pray together, thanking God for helping each person in his garden bear fruit for him.
