Bible Point-Follow Jesus!

Key Verse:  “Come follow me”, Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

We learned in Sunday school this week that we follow Jesus like the disciples did (Mark 1:14-20).  You can strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:  (during mealtime, at bedtime, in the car, anytime)

1.  Get your Bible and read Matthew 10:37-39 and Matthew 16:24-26.

2.  Talk about how Jesus told his disciples twice to take up the cross and follow him. Together, think of specific things your family does to follow Jesus. Think about where in your lives you’re following Jesus: with your family, at school, with friends, or in sports, for example.

3.  Talk about how you can commit as a family to follow Jesus in each of these areas in the coming week.

4.  End with this prayer, pray from your heart, and/or say the Lord’s Prayer: God, we know your plans for us are perfect.  Help us to follow you every day.  In Jesus’ name, amen.
