Bible Story: The Lost Sheep | Luke 15:3-7
Main Point: God loves me.
Memory Verse: “Nothing can separate us from God’s love.” Romans 8:39 (NIrV)
In August we’re blasting off with exciting stories and fantastic adventures as we discover how God made us, God loves us, and Jesus wants to be our friend forever!
In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells a parable of a lost sheep so we can see how much God loves us. Jesus talked about a shepherd who looked everywhere to find one sheep because the shepherd loved and cared for his sheep, just like God loves and cares for us!
Jesus told this story because he wanted us to know that God is our good shepherd. He loves us and He will come looking for us just like a shepherd looks for his lost sheep and saves the day. You don’t ever have to be worried about being lost from God. He will always find you because He loves you!
