Welcome to Family Devos!
Our goal is to support parents in the spiritual discipleship of their children!
Below you'll find helpful insight about what your child is learning at church, discussion questions to help continue
the conversation at home, and ideas that will help cement these biblical concepts for your family!
JESUS' EARLY LIFE AND MINISTRY
Ever feel like being a Christian makes you not normal? Good! We can try to blend in and be like everyone else, or we can stand up and stand out in the world. After all, that’s what Jesus did! When Jesus showed up, His whole life seemed not-so-normal to most people. From His childhood to His early ministry, it was clear from the beginning that Jesus wasn’t like most people. In this 4-week series, kid will examine the early life and ministry of Jesus as they discover that Jesus is not normal, that Jesus is God, that Jesus is perfect, and that Jesus invites us to be not-so-normal along with Him.
NOT NORMAL - WEEK 3
🎉 THIS WEEK
This week, kids heard the story of Jesus being tempted.
THE BIG IDEA: Jesus is perfect.
THE BIBLE: Matthew 3:11-17 (Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:4)
💬 ASK THIS
Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation-starter that isn't "So . . . how was church?"
Who was Jesus tempted by? What was He tempted with? (Satan met Jesus in the wilderness after praying and fasting for 40 days. He tempted Him with food, power, and riches.)
How did Jesus combat these temptations? (He quoted and relied on scripture instead of listening to the devil.)
Why would Jesus allow Himself to be tempted? (To show us that He was perfect. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve proved that as humans we were not perfect and could be tempted by sin. But Jesus is perfect and could withstand sin.)
How does knowing that Jesus is perfect change how we see our own sin? (Only Jesus is able to rescue, redeem, and restore us from our sin! Even though we are not perfect, Jesus' perfect sacrifice on the cross means that all of our sin, past, present, and future, is covered by Him!)
🧠 REMEMBER THIS
This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verses Psalm 118:24 in case you want to work on them together!
➡️ NEXT WEEK
Next week, kids heard the story of Jesus calling the disciples.
THE BIG IDEA: Jesus invites us to live like Him.
THE BIBLE: Matthew 4:18-23 (Mark 8:34-36; Ephesians 5:1-2)
