Teachers have been emphasizing the following key points:
– Jesus is God’s Son.
– Jesus is perfect and holy, but we are sinners.
– Sin separates us from God.
– Jesus came to save us from our sins.
– We need to be sorry for our sin.
Throughout the week, look for opportunities to talk to your child(ren) about these things – about Jesus, about how our sin keeps us away from God, and about how we needed a Savior to come and die for our sins so we could be with God again.
(Are you wondering about the scribbled and ripped piece of paper under the colorful cross that your child brought home? Well, the white side of the piece of paper represented Jesus’ holy, perfect life. The scribbles represent our sin, and the torn paper showed how our sin separates us from God. The cross was used to put the torn paper back together; this shows how Jesus dying on the cross can put our relationship with God back together and covers all our sin.)
