June's Bible Verse

"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of eternal life to which you were called and about which you have made a good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
1 Timothy 6:12

Try to work on memorizing the verse above over the next month!

The Gospel Project made a song to help us learn this month's Bible verse! Click HERE to access it.

OR

Try to write it down on a piece of paper or white board, and then after saying it once or twice, cover up or erase a word, and then say it again. Do this over and over until half the verse is gone! Then try to say it on your own without looking at the verse.

Discussion Questions

1. How are we are saved?
By grace through faith, not by works; Eph. 2:8

2. Can Gentiles be a part of God’s family?
Yes, through Jesus; Eph. 2:11-13

3. How are all believers similar?
All believers are members of the same body and partners in the promises of Jesus; Eph. 3:6

4. Why does God want people from every people group to be saved?
Guide kids to understand that all people are made by God in His image. God loves us because He created us. He shows His love for all people by making salvation available to every person who believes in Jesus, not just certain kinds of people.

5. How does God’s feelings about diverse people change our feelings about diverse people?
Help kids see that, just as Jews and Gentiles can be united in Jesus, any and all people groups can be united in Jesus no matter how different they seem, or how long they have treated one another as enemies. We should treat all people with love and respect.

6. How can we show others that we love God and celebrate the diverse world He created?
Explain that we show our love of God by loving the people He loves— everyone. Brainstorm ways your group can help spread love and forgiveness in your city.

Christ Connection

The gospel brings together all people who have faith in Jesus. God’s salvation is a gift of grace, not something we can earn with good works. Forgiven sinners come together as the church to obey God and do His work in the world.

The Gospel Project provides a step-by-step way of explaining what the Gospel is to children.
Try to talk through each of these steps with your child today!

GOD RULES

Ask: "Who is in charge at home?" Explain that because God created everything, He is in charge of everything. Read Revelation 4:11.

WE SINNED

Ask: "Have you ever done something wrong?" Tell kids that everyone sins, or disobeys God. Our sin separates us from God. Read Romans 3:23.

GOD PROVIDED

Explain that God is holy and must punish sin. God sent His Son, Jesus, to take the punishment we deserve. Read John 3:16.

JESUS GIVES

Ask: "What is the best gift you've ever received?" Say that Jesus took our punishment for sin by giving His life, and He gives us His righteousness. God sees us as if we lived the perfect life Jesus lived. This is the best gift ever! Read 2 Corinthians 5:21.

WE RESPOND

Explain that everyone has a choice to make. Ask: "Will you trust Jesus as your Savior and Lord? You can turn from self and sin and turn to Jesus." Read Romans 10:9-10.
