In Case the Take-Home-Page didn't make it home this week. This is what we talked about in RAKlets on May 31, 2013:
This week we talked about the most important thing that the church does and learned that the most important thing for Christians to do and the most important thing for the church to do, is to proclaim the gospel.... to tell people the good news that Jesus died to pay the price for sin.
Here are some ideas for your family-worship this week. Read more about family worship here.
Day 1- Read Acts 3:1-16 - - The background for our story this week was that Peter had healed a crippled man. How did he explain how he was able to do this? Act out the story of the healing and the people’s reaction to the healing. â€¨â€¨
Day 2- Read Acts 4:1-22 - - This was our main story for the week. How did Peter explain the healing? What did Peter tell them about Jesus? Based on verse 20, what should be the priority for Christians?â€¨
â€¨Day 3-Read Genesis 3- - This week we talked a lot about the good news and how the news of Jesus dying on the cross is only good news if you know the rest of the story. How does this story of the first sin help you understand why Jesus‘ death is good news? Read Romans 6:23 to explain it even more. Pretend that you are a news reporter and either write a news article or present a news report to your family explaining why we all need to be saved.â€¨â€¨
Day 4- Read Philippians 2:6-11 - - Still thinking about needing to know the rest of the story to understand the good news, how do these verses explain Jesus. Make a list of what these verses teach us about who Jesus is and what Jesus did? Where do you see the good news in these verses? â€¨â€¨
Day 5- Read Acts 4:12, John 14:6, John 3:36, 1 Timothy 2:5-6 â€¨& Romans 10:9 - - What do all of these verses have in common? Basically all of these verses teach us that Jesus is the only way to be saved. Choose one of these verses and write in in the middle of a piece of paper. Then, illustrate the verse and use it to explain the good news of Jesus to someone. Make sure to think back to other things that you read this week and include the rest of the story....why do we need to be saved? what to we need to be saved from? why can’t we save ourselves?
