God and All People

Family Fun Icebreaker: Do you have an embarrassing moment that taught you something? What?

Question: How Does God Relate to Others?

Today’s Big Idea: God and All People

The Bible explains God’s plan for a relationship with all people. God knows of Adam and Eve’s sin before they commit the act; God has a plan. Before He gives Moses the Ten Commandments, He knows people cannot keep His Law. God is aware that you require guidance to meet His glorious standard. God wants you to see that you need Him to live the right way. He planned all along to send Jesus Christ, His Son, to pay the price for all the sin of those who believe in Him. Jesus, the only sinless man, died on the cross almost 2000 years ago. Since Jesus had no sin, God raised Jesus from the dead and placed Him in heaven, so that He was not separated from God. God, in His great kindness, allows your sins to be paid for by Jesus’ death if you let Jesus be Lord over your life. After accepting Jesus as your Lord, you receive special guidance from the Holy Spirit and the gift of eternal life from God.

Talk with God: Read the scriptures aloud.

For everyone has sinned, we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23 NLT

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NLT

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 NLT

Walk with God: Read aloud and discuss.

Even though you struggle with sin, God still helps you. God wants you just as you are, and He loves imperfect people. You don’t have to change first to be in a relationship with God. He accepts you as you are with patience, desiring for you to get to know Him and learn His ways. In time, as you read His Word, your heart changes. You begin to want to live more like Him. God helps you by giving you a desire to do the right thing, but the transformation is a process. Your trust in God grows as you learn more about Him; the change in heart happens in time.

Discuss with your family: God is a good influence on you. Do you see your need for God? How? Have you noticed that the more you learn about God, the more you recognize sin and resist it?
Prayer suggestion: Pray for God to help you see Him.
