In our Bible story this week, a poor widow gave the two copper coins to worship God (Mark 12:41-44; Luke 21:1-4). She made a huge sacrifice to worship Him! Jesus has given us the greatest gift. Jesus gave up everything He had in heaven to come to earth and save us from our sins. Jesus gave up His own life, dying on the cross in our place. When you know and love Jesus, you ...Keep Reading

God has a purpose for us on this earth. That calling is to be on mission for God where He has placed us. And since many people spend the majority of their waking hours on the job, we have to stop compartmentalizing life into “spiritual activities” and “work activities.” How are we living examples of the gospel while we work? ...
God showed Peter that just as there is no “clean” and “unclean” food, there are no “clean” and “unclean” people. God calls believers to tell everyone the good news about Jesus, no matter who they are or where they come from. Jesus is the Lord of all....

This week we learned about Jesus cleansing the temple (Matthew 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-48). Jesus was angry when He found people misusing the temple by selling items unfairly.

Now, God’s...Keep Reading

This week, we talked about Mary anointing Jesus with oil from an alabaster jar (Matthew 26:5-13; Mark 14:3-9; John 12:1-8). Pouring the very expensive oil on Jesus was not a waste; it was worship. Talk with your kids about ways they can worship God this week. Emphasize that they can worship God any time. They might worship Him by working hard at a sports practice, through ...Keep Reading

The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is the center of the gospel. The entirety of our faith hinges upon it as the truth. We deserve to die because of our sin, but Jesus died in our place. He was the blood sacrifice made once and for all for the forgiveness of sin. God was pleased with Jesus’ sacrifice and raised Jesus from the dead to reign as King over all creation...Keep Reading
