NEW BEGINNINGS - On With The New


Last Sunday Discovery Point: 
New Beginnings – On with the new
Today, your child learned, that as believers, we are to get rid of our old sinful nature and become a new creature in Christ, living our lives in such a way as to best represent Him to the world. (Scriptures used: 2 Corinthians 5:17-22)

Memory Verse:


Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception……..Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. (Ephesians 4:22 & 24)

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:

Read 2 Corinthians 5:17-22. After reading this passage, discuss why it is good to get rid of things which hinder us from becoming who God wants us to be. Have each family member go to his or her room and see if there is anything in the room he or she can get rid of because it is broken, useless, or basically just taking up space. Place all the items in a pile on the floor and have each family member discuss why he or she wants to get rid of the item he or she selected. (Parents, you can make the judgement call on if an item really needs to go.) After all the items have been reviewed, discuss how our spiritual lives can follow the same principal. We keep and hold on to many things that hinder our spiritual growth. We need to put off our sinful natures and instead become new creatures in Christ living our lives in such a way as to best represent Him to the world.

Daily Prayer:

Dear Lord, forgive me for holding on to my sinful ways. Show me how to get rid of the old self and put on the new. Teach me how to best represent Christ in my everyday life. Amen.
