Unit 6, Session 5: God Reminded His People of His Covenant

Dear Parents,

 

This week, our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids focused on Moses’ farewell reminder to the people of Israel about God’s covenant and His faithfulness to them. Moses called on the people to be holy and obey only God. If they did this, they would be blessed. If they did not, they would not be blessed.

Unit 6 Session 5

Help your kids understand that proper obedience is born out of gratitude to God for what He has done, not as a way to earn God’s favor.

Unit 6, Session 4: Worship Only God

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and studied Moses’ reminder to God’s people to worship only the one true God. God alone is worthy of worship and He is jealous of this.

 

Help your kids identify possible “idols” in their lives that draw their worship away from God and pray about ways to reject worshiping anything except God.

Unit 6, Session 3: God Gave Rules for Sacrifice

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and examined the rules that God gave His people for how to worship Him in the tabernacle. God required sacrifices from the people when they sinned. The book of Hebrews tells us that the sacrifices themselves did not save the people, but it was their faith in the Sacrifice of Jesus who was to come that saved them.

Unit 6 Session 3

Help your kids realize that Jesus it the ultimate and perfect Sacrifice and salvation is found in Him alone.

Unit 6, Session 2: The Tabernacle Was Built

Dear Parents,

 

This week, we continued our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and learned about Israel following God’s very specific instructions on how to build a tabernacle. The people gave joyfully and generously and God equipped them to construct the place where He would dwell with them. We no longer need a tabernacle today because Jesus came to “tabernacle,” or dwell, with God’s people.

Unit 6 Session 2

Help your kids worship God and thank Him for His gift of Jesus and that through Him people can dwell with God forever.

    • God is holy; He always does what is right.
    • God told His people how to build a special tent.
    • God sent Jesus to be with us forever.
