This week your students learned about Jesus as our great Interceder. Jesus took our place on the cross and stands as the Interceder between us and the Father. Share with your student someone who has stood in the gap for you. Someone who stood up or spoke up for you that made a difference in your life. This will help them begin to understand Jesus as their Interceder.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Jesus is our Holy undefiled Savior who lives to intercede for us.
- Dwell: Only Jesus can provide salvation. Our salvation depends on Him and Him alone. Since salvation is based on Jesus and His character, we can live faithfully and share the gospel with confidence. If you have committed your life to Christ, who do you need to tell about Jesus? How can you use what you’ve learned to help them understand that only Jesus saves?
- Memorize: Hebrews 7:25
- Pray: Ask Jesus to help you understand the price that was paid for your sin. Ask Him to give you understanding about His role of interceder in your life. Thank Him for stepping in and paying the price for your student’s sin. Thank Him that he stands in the gap that we cannot as parents.
Tonight your students learned about how knowing Christ is greater than everything, yes, everything. That means he is greater than our fears and failures, but he is also worth more than all the accomplishments of this world: sports, scholastic, career, popularity, religious activity, etc. Paul writes that he counted everything as loss for the sake of knowing Christ as Lord (Philippians 3:7-9).
CRITICAL QUESTION: What religious activity do you count on as more important than the surpassing worth of knowing Christ?
