This week your student learned about how Jesus became our Deliverer. Take some time to talk to your student about their personal relationship with the Deliverer. They were asked during their application time whether Jesus Christ is their Savior and Deliverer and what that is based on. Talk to your student and be sure you are aware of where they stand.
CENTRAL TRUTH: God provided our Deliverer through Jesus Christ.
PERSONAL PARENT CHALLENGE:
- Dwell: Regardless of how many times you have heard the story of Jesus’ birth, let this message resonate with you like it is the first time. God sent His only Son to this world to die for our sin, breaking bondage sin traps us in. That news–the good news of the gospel–should motivate us to live differently, love others as Christ has loved us, and share the great joy of the gospel with someone who does not know Christ as his or her Deliverer.
- Memorize: Luke 2:11a
- Pray: Jesus, thank You that You decided to leave your throne in heaven to come to earth so that I cold have a relationship with God. Thank you for delivering me from my sin. Because of your birth, I can have new life. Help me to understand not only the power that new birth holds in my life, but also the necessity of sharing that story with others.
