This Sunday is a fifth Sunday. We have been using these Sundays as KIDZ in Church. Here are the KIDZ in Church notes. The note sheet is designed to help kids listen to the sermon and look at the preached text.
Remember, your child may get only some of the sermon, but they will get a lot from watching you during the service and talking to you afterward. Take time to talk about what everyone heard.
Romans 8 is such a great chapter to study. An excellent way to prepare your child for KIDZ in Church Sunday is to read Romans 8:1 - 4. Tell them that last week, we learned that GOD DID what was necessary for our salvation (verse 3)
Therefore there is now no condemnation at all for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
And then read verses 5 through 8 with them.
Here are some talking points for you to discuss after the sermon.
- What does "Behavior reveals Truth" mean?
- If you believe that God is sovereign and Jesus saves those who trust in Him, then you will act differently than if you trust yourself and what you do.
