For the next several months we are taking a deep dive into grace for our FAITH5 nightly experience. Our topic for this month: Grasped by Grace. Each week during your nightly FAITH5 Experience we will look at what it means to be grasped by the grace of God.
Parents… As always you want to have these discussions with your kids at age appropriate levels. You might also go online and find a kids version of the Bible passage. www.Biblegateway.com has many different versions that you can choose from.
|Share… One high and one low from your today.|
|Read… When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:6-8)|
|Talk… What does it mean to be a sinner? You might want to look up the word sin online. What does this passage say to you about what God’s grasp of grace looks like in your life? What about God’s grace makes you thankful? What does this passage say about what God thinks about you?
During the week you might want to grasp someone you love with a big bear hug and let that person know how much you love him or her. If you are doing FAITH5 with others… grasp each other each night as you bless each other.
|Pray… For each other, for those you love, for your church, for your fellow students or coworkers, that they might experience the grasp of God’s grace.|
|Bless… End your time by making the sign of the cross on each other and saying these words: May the Lord bless you and keep you.|
