Bible Point – Jesus forgives us

Key Verse:  “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”  1 John 1

When we confess our sins, Jesus will forgive us (Mark 2:1-12).   Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:

  1. Talk about a time someone in your family wanted forgiveness from someone else in your family. Talk about how the conflict was resolved. If it hasn’t been resolved, talk about what can be done to bring about forgiveness in the situation.
  2. Discuss how we can know when to ask God to forgive us. What does it mean to you that God is a forgiving God? What kinds of things do we ask forgiveness for? What do you want to ask forgiveness for this week?
  3. Pray:  God, thank you for sending Jesus to give us forgiveness for our sins. Please help us to believe in you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
