SESSION 3: God Sent Jesus to Save Us

Focus

1.
Your story and Jesus’ story are connected.

2.
God will go to unimaginable lengths to prove his love for you.

3.
Jesus invites you to have a dynamic and personal relationship with him so that he can share his happiness with you and you can share it with others.

Act

If there is one person to get to know in a deeply personal way, it’s Jesus. There is no person and no story more important for you or your child to discover than Jesus and his story. And, believe it or not, this is a great opportunity for you to rediscover Jesus. What is your favorite part of the Jesus story? Is it his birth and childhood? His teachings? His miracles? His sacrifice on the cross? His death and resurrection? The Ascension?

Share with your child your favorite part of the Jesus story, and ask them to share their favorite part, too.

Pray

Pray this prayer with your child each day this week:

Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy.
Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy.
Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.
Amen.
