Unit 6, Session 1: The Ten Commandments: Love Others

Dear Parents,

 

This week, our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids took us to the remaining six of the Ten Commandments. These commands show God’s people how they can love others. When someone truly loves God, they are compelled to love what He loves – including other people.

 

Help your kids understand that loving people is not an option but something God commands us to do and something we should want to do out of gratitude to God.

Unit 4, Session 5: The Ten Commandments: Love God

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and examined the first four of the Ten Commandments. These commands were given by God through Moses to teach His people how to love and worship Him. God demands perfect obedience, something none of us can do. And that’s the point of the law – to show us of our need for another way to be right with God; a way found only in Jesus.

 

Help your kids understand that God is holy and expects us to be holy as well and we can be holy because of Jesus.

Unit 4, Session 4: The Golden Calf

Dear Parents,

 

This week, our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids took us to when Moses went up Mt. Sinai to talk with God for 40 days. During that time, the people rebelled against the one true God and asked Aaron to make a golden calf to be their god. When God became angry, Moses interceded on their behalf.

 

Help your kids connect Moses interceding for Israel that day with Jesus interceding for God’s people today.

Unit 4, Session 3: The Wilderness Test

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and learned that God provided food and water for His people as they wandered in the wilderness. When Israel became hungry and thirsty, they grumbled about Moses and God, and God graciously provided for them even if they did not deserve it. In the same way that God provided for Israel’s physical need, God provides for the spiritual need of people through Jesus.

 

Help your kids understand that God is gracious and He freely gives what we need – including Jesus – not because of anything they have done, but because of God’s goodness alone.

Unit 4, Session 2: The Plagues, the Passover, and the Crossing of the Red Sea

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and learned about God leading the Israelites out of Egypt. God used miraculous plagues to show Pharaoh and the Egyptian people that He alone is God and graciously spared the Israelites from the final plague when they trusted in Him and put the blood of a lamb around their doors. God spared Israel by the blood of a lamb, but Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

 

Help your kids understand that God’s salvation of His people is always by grace through faith and remind them of their need for Jesus to forgive them of their sin.
