Sermon Topic: Difficulties
Note: We desire to partner with parents in helping their children grow spiritually, but we also recognize many of us feel ill-equipped to handle this responsibility. Here are some ideas for incorporating what you are learning each week into faith conversations at home. Choose what fits your family; make it a habit of sharing and praying together.
FUN FAMILY ACTIVITY:
Activity Level: Start or continue the Bible reading plan, 5x5x5 New Testament Reading Plan, with your family. Choose a time that you and your child(ren) can be available to meet together in a family room. For example, in the mornings before schools, in the evenings before dinners, or before bedtimes. If your child(ren) is not ready, pray for a God-honored decision today. Start the Bible reading as a family whenever your child(ren) is ready. Bible reading plan is on the back.
Spiritual Level: The ark was in the middle of the Isreal army when they walked around the city of Jericho. God’s presence was with the army before the battle. God had made the wall collapsed and allowed the Isreal army to take over the city of Jericho. From the leaders and soldiers, they demonstrated faith in following Joshua’s order. Joshua demonstrated his faith in following God’s will.
And when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, when you hear the sound of the trumpet, then all the people shall shout with a great shout, and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people shall go up, everyone straight before him.
Joshua 6:5 (ESV)
Dear Heavenly Father, You’re great to be praised. Your instructions lead us to overcome the difficulties in our lives. When we struggle, depress, or disappointed, You’re always there for us. We ask the Holy Spirit to guard our faith in Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
