Seven-Mile Miracle Family Activity :: Mile #4

Mile #4: Abandonment

Jesus died so you never have to be alone. God is always with you. 

Family Activity: Everyone feels lonely sometimes. In the Bible, two men named Paul and Silas got thrown in jail for preaching about Jesus, and it would have been easy to feel sad and alone in prison. But instead of being lonely Acts 16:25 says they were “praying and singing hymns to God.”

Singing to God when we feel lonely cheers us up and remind us God is always with us. While in the car, on your way to school or a practice, crank up your favorite Elevation Worship song and rock out in the car with your family! What words in the song are you favorite? What do they mean?

Share: Post a video of your jam session and dance party with your favorite worship song lyrics. Use the hashtag #sevenmilemiracle and tag @elevationeKidz.

Mile #3: Relationships

Relationships were important to Jesus. God has put many important relationships in our lives, too. 

Family Activity: Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for times of trouble.” God has given you friends and family members who love and encourage you. At lunchtime, list as many of your friends and family members as you can on a napkin or a paper plate. Then share what you like about each person. Circle one person that is really special to you. How can you show that people that they are important to you today?

Share: Post a picture of a friend or family member you are thankful for and what you love about them. Use the hashtag #sevenmilemiracle and tag @elevationeKidz.

Mile #2: Salvation

Jesus offers salvation to everyone who chooses to follow Him. Then, He calls us to put our faith to work!

Family Activity: Philippians 2:12 says to “continue to work out your salvation.” Your faith gets stronger when you work it out, just like your muscles! Write your own fitness challenge for the day and work out for a few minutes as a family. After the workout, ask:

  • How did you do?
  • Was the workout hard or easy?
  • What is one way you can work out your faith? 


Share:
Post a picture or a video of your workout and what you learned about exercising your faith.  Use the hashtag #sevenmilemiracle and tag @elevationeKidz.
