Chapel of the Cross Faith & Family

Family Bible time for the week of March 29-April 4

Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!

This interactive Bible time is a great way for your family to gather around God's Word and read, listen, watch, sing, and do activities together that help you learn more about God's great love for you in Jesus.

Jesus and Zacchaeus

Jesus came to save and love all sinners, including you and me!

Has anyone ever told you, “You’re too little to do that?” Today, we’re going to hear about a little man who finds out that no one is too little, too big, or too bad for Jesus’ love.

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for talking to us through Your Word, the Bible. Thank You for loving us so much that You sent Your Son, Jesus, to be our Savior. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Jesus and Zacchaeus

Talk about it

  • What did Jesus do when He saw Zacchaeus? Why do you think He did that?
  • What did Zacchaeus say and do after eating with Jesus?
  • How does Jesus' love and forgiveness change the things you say and do?

Jesus sought out and called Zacchaeus, and offered him forgiveness and a new life in Him. Zacchaeus's heart was changed, and he immediately made some big changes to his life.

Sometimes, we also feel small and full of sin, like Zacchaeus. Jesus seeks out and calls you too, and offers you His love and forgiveness. You can rejoice, knowing that you are never too small or too sinful for Jesus to love you.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Closing Prayer

Dear Jesus, thank You for coming to save lost and sinful people like Zacchaeus and like us. Make us as excited as Zacchaeus to share Your love with others. In Your name we pray. Amen.
