Hands-On Faith – Week of March 14, 2016

Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of March 14, 2016

Theme: Jesus Gave His All for You

The Church Rescued by Christ

Scripture: The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:35, 36 ESV).

Play: Ask each family member to choose a made-up superhero name and explain what superhero powers he has. Have others suggest a crisis and let each superhero demonstrate how his superhero powers can solve the crisis.

Talk: For thousands of years, all of humankind was in crisis, and we needed a superhero. We were trapped by our own sins. Even when we wanted to do good, we often chose to sin instead. We became slaves to sin. That’s why Jesus came down from heaven and rescued His church. He set us free from our sins (John 8:35–36). Those He has saved, His church, are free to love and serve God and others. What makes Jesus the superhero over all superheroes?

Pray: Thank Jesus for giving himself up for you. Ask Him to cleanse you from sin and set you free to love and serve Him.
