Opening Prayer

Lord God,
The message of the cross is difficult to take. How can death give way to life? How can weakness be strength?

Yet your word says that Jesus, being God, took on human flesh and suffered the worst kind of death. How can this be?

This message is indeed difficult to take, but your foolishness is wiser than our wisdom. Your weakness is greater than our strength.
Help us to know that none of us can boast before you.

It is only in Christ Jesus that we can boast. In his name, we ask you to help our unbelief that we may love you, and walk in the way Jesus taught us. In his name, Amen.


This Week's Memory Verse - Romans 5:8 & 6:23

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us... For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

I always learn scripture better when I can put music to it. If that sounds like you, too, you can use this music video to help you remember this awesome verse about this gift of love, this sacrifice that Christ made for us - sinners who do not deserve this gift but rather deserve death - so we could have eternal life.

Hey Man (Romans 5:8 & 6:23)

Lay it Down
Chris Tomlin - Resurrection Power (Lyric Video)


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), and because He is steadfast, who we are in Him remains the same regardless of circumstances. These statements remind us whose we are and who we are Because of who Jesus is.

Speak these statements together as a family.
