Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of January 16, 2017

Theme: Let God Lead You

Let God Direct Your Life     

Scripture: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10).

Play: As you're driving, ask your kids to identify which side of the road you’re on (left or right). When you turn, does it change? Imagine what could happen if you drove on the opposite side of the road.

Talk:  Just like there’s only one way to drive on each side of the street, Jesus is the one and only way to eternal life. In John 10:10, Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, He directs your life and leads you into a relationship with the heavenly Father. Why is it important to let God direct your life?

Pray: Thank God for sending Jesus to forgive our sins so we can have life forever with Him.

— Christi Lynn
