Since the Coronavirus is keeping families at home, I’m offering free family devotions for children’s pastors to distribute to parents of their students. These devotions are from Building Foundations Curriculum and are copyrighted. They are only meant as a free resource during this time. Do not sell or publish this resource.

Lesson 3 – The Road to the Cross Family Devotion Handout
Verse of the Day: Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Summary: There are decent, heroic people who are willing to lay down their lives for others, but I don’t know of anyone who would lay down the life of his only son for someone else. Yet that’s what God the Father did when He sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. He loves us that much.
This sheet is provided to help families with devotions to go with the lessons your children learned in children’s church this week. Included is a daily Bible reading to use for discussions.
Monday: Read John 3:16-21. Jesus died on the cross because God loves us.
Tuesday: Read Romans 8:31-39. Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
Wednesday: Read Matthew 6:25-34 Because God loves us, we don’t have to worry. He cares for us and will provide what we need.
Thursday: Read Jeremiah 29:11. Because God loves us, He has good plans for our lives.
Friday: Read 1 John 3:1-3. Because God loves us, He calls us the children of God.
Saturday: Read 1 John 4:7-21 Because God loves us so much, He wants us to love others.
Family Activity: Treasure Hunt
Hide “treasures” your children would like inside the house or outside in your yard. Give the children a list of the treasure, and let them have a treasure hunt to find the treasures. When they have found all the treasures, talk about how salvation is the greatest treasure we can ever find.
