Motion :: Week of December 8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read Luke 1:26-56 together as a family.

In today’s Bible story, Gabriel visited Mary with a huge announcement. God was about to rescue the world through Jesus, and she had an important role to play. Mary was overwhelmed by God’s love for the world and the part she got to play by fulfilling God’s plan to send a Savior.

God can use anyone to meet others’ needs. Even if you don’t feel like you have what it takes, God can use you to show compassion and meet the needs of the people around you.

Discuss the following questions with your child:

  • God chose Mary to bring Jesus into the world so Jesus could save us. Why might people have been surprised that God chose Mary?
  • What was Jesus willing to do to meet our need?
  • When was the last time you helped meet someone else’s need? What did you do to help them?
  • What is the greatest need at your school? What could you do to help meet that need?

Motion :: Week of December 1

COMPASSION: Caring enough to do something about someone else’s need.
Series Memory Verse:“God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16, (NIV)
Main Point:God did something about our greatest need.
Bible Story: God Loves the World | John 3:16

God’s compassion for the people He created led to the greatest act of love the world has ever seen. God sent His only Son to make us right with Him. We reflect that compassion when we care about others and show them how much God loves them. That’s the mission God has for each of us!

In John 3:16, God helped a man named Nicodemus understand what God’s love is all about. God knew our greatest need of a savior and did something about it. God gave us Jesus, His one and only Son, to be our savior. God did something about our greatest need for a savior by giving us Jesus, His gift to the world.

God did something about our greatest need. Jesus was God’s gift to the world and we pray that kids start to understand their need for a Savior and put their trust in Jesus.

At dinner tonight, ask, “What is the greatest gift you ever received? How did it make you feel to receive it?”
