The Truth About You…Who I am
I am loved by God
“Here is how God showed his love among us. He sent his one and only Son into the world. He sent him so we could receive life through him. Here is what love is. It is not that we loved God. It is that he loved us and sent his Son to give his life to pay for our sins.”
1 John 4:9-10
1 – Easter wasn’t very long ago, why do we celebrate Easter?
2 – Why did God send Jesus to Earth? Not only does He send Jesus to Earth, but He sends Jesus to die on Earth, to die on a cross. Why?
3 – How much does God love you? How do you know? (the Bible tells me so)
If you have the Jesus Storybook Bible, read “Running Away”. Or, grab your bible and read Luke 15:11-32. Or, you can watch this video
4 – In this story, the father represents God and the brothers represent us. How do you think the father felt when his youngest son left home? How did the father feel when the son returned home?
5 – What is the worst, meanest, wrongest thing you’ve ever done? Did you eventually say sorry? Was it easy to say sorry? Were you forgiven?
Jesus told this story so that people would know that no matter what, they can never, ever run too far away from God. That God is always waiting for them, loving them, wanting them to come home.
6 – Ask your parents how much they love you. Make sure you tell your parents how much you love them. And, then think about how God’s love is like a hundred billion times greater than that.
Let’s try a new song for every week.
