SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH
Discuss these questions together as a family:
What amazing place did Joel visit in today’s video?
What did Joel learn about glass?
Can we ﬁx our relationship with God?
Who provided a way for us to have a relationship with God?
Turn to Genesis in your Bible and read Chapter 3:1-7 together as a family. What is sin? (Any attitude, thought, or action that disobeys God) It looks like Eve knew the serpent might be trying to trick her since she said it was okay for them to eat from other trees in the garden, just not the one tree God had warned them about. Eve knew that eating from that tree would bring death. The serpent then told Eve that she wouldn’t really die if she ate from the tree, but the tree would make her smart. Does that sound like something you think Eve wanted? Adam and Eve knew that God had told them not to eat from the tree. The serpent made it sound like the consequences for disobeying God would not be as severe as God had warned. Sin has a price and because of Adam and Eve’s choice to sin, our world and our relationship with God are broken. The really good news is that our relationship isn’t Jesus has paid the price for our sin! If we ask God to forgive us, we can once again be close with Him-isn’t that amazing?
Use the bible story picture to engage your child as you tell them the story about how God told people to obey Him!
