Welcome to this week’s Grace Kids @Home, a recap of last Saturday’s Grace Kids lesson.

We’ve prepared a short question guide that will enable you as a parent to follow up with your children on the lesson they had. For effective learning at Grace Kids we believe in the 3 step learning cycle – presentation (in class), feedback (in class) and follow up/repetition (at home). We encourage you to take time every week and complete the learning process for the kids so that the truth of the Gospel will be sustained in their hearts.

Before beginning the discussion ensure you have less distractions, try to make the discussion informal, please do not exceed 20 minutes in conducting the discussion.

First, ask the children the questions and note down their answers thereafter read the answers to them and help them remember.

The important discussion-questions to ask your children are:

  1. a)What do you remember about the bible story of 'WE ARE SAVED BY FAITH IN JESUS’b) What is faith? c) Who in the Bible has shown faith? d) How does faith in Jesus give you hope?
  2. How was the story connecting to Christ?
  3. Can you recite the key passage – ‘Hebrews 11:6’?
  4. What was the answer to the big picture question – ‘How can we be saved?’?

 

1. The Bible story

WE ARE SAVED BY FAITH IN JESUS

People who love Jesus live by faith. Faith is when you believe something that you have not seen. Faith is trusting God. By faith, we believe that God is who He says He is and that He will do everything He said He will do. It is impossible to please God without having faith.
Many people in the Bible had faith, and this pleased God. Abel had faith. He made an offering to God, and God accepted it. Noah had faith too. He believed God when God told him to build an ark to rescue his family. God was pleased with Noah.
Abraham had faith when God told him to leave his home. God made promises to Abraham, and Abraham believed that God was going to keep His promises.
Abraham’s wife Sarah had faith. She trusted God to give her a family even though she was too old to have children. God gave Abraham and Sarah a big family.
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses had faith. Rahab had faith when she hid the Israelite spies in Jericho. King David had faith too. All of these people trusted God, and so did many others. Having faith was not easy. Many suffered, and they all died before God’s greatest promise—the arrival of Jesus—came true, but they believed that God had a wonderful plan. God was pleased with them because they trusted Him.
God’s plan came true. He kept His promise to send the Messiah—His own Son, Jesus—to rescue people from sin

  2. Christ Connection

The Bible tells us about people who had faith, but Jesus is the only true hero of the Bible. He trusted in God’s plan even though it meant dying on the cross. We are saved from our sin when we have faith in Jesus.

3. Key passage/Memory verse

Younger kids (4-6years old)

Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6

Older Kids (7-10years old)

Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

4. Big picture question

How can we be saved? We are only saved by trusting in Jesus.

We hope this is a blessing to you and your family. If you have any questions, please let us know! send us an email kids@gracechurchabudhabi.com
