Bible Point: Jesus died to take the punishment for our sins.
Key Verse: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Jesus was put on trial, was hung on a cross, and died for our sins (Luke 19:28-40; 23:1-49). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:
- Talk about the best gift you’ve ever received. Maybe you got a bike you always wanted one Christmas morning, or perhaps you received a homemade gift from your child that meant a lot to you. Encourage the rest of your family to also share about the best gifts ever.
- Then talk about how Jesus is God’s best gift to us. Encourage your children to think about how Jesus’ death is a gift to each person and how Jesus came to earth to die on the cross so we can be forgiven for our sins.
God, thank you for the amazing sacrifice Jesus made for us. Help us remember each day how You sent your only Son to die for our sins. In Jesus’ name, amen.
