Jesus Saving Time

Key Verse: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”
(John 3:16)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: Jesus gives us eternal life

(Open the bible and read to your child John 3:1-17) Nicodemas was a teacher that came to Jesus at night to ask him some questions and learn from him. Nicodemas wanted to know first confirm who Jesus was. Jesus not only confirmed this, but told him how you can enter the kingdom of heaven, by being born again. Nicodemas was confused, so Jesus uses an example that he would recognize. When Moses led the people of Israel through the desert snakes invaded the camp. Moses made a snake of bronze, and every time they looked upon the snake they were saved from death. Jesus explained that, in the same way, he would be lifted up so that all could look on him and be saved.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk about what you think heaven will be like. Share what you think heaven will look like and what you’re most looking forward to about heaven. Then ask your children to share their versions of what they think heaven might be like. Encourage your kids to use their imaginations as they dream about flying, eating candy for every meal, or meeting people mentioned in the Bible. Then ask your kids to think about how the thought of having eternal life and someday getting to live in heaven affects how they live their lives each day here on earth.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Create an “eternity mural” to hang on a wall in your home. Have family members draw pictures on sheets of construction paper and then piece the sheets together like quilt blocks. Have each family member contribute his or her ideas of what eternal life in heaven will be like.
