We Show Hope By How We Live

Last Sunday Discovery Point:

We show hope by how we live

Last Sunday Key Verse:
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)

Master and Slave
Read Romans 6:15-23 together as a family, and talk about what it means to be a slave to God instead of a slave to sin. Then play the following game to help you learn what it means to be God’s slave.

Pick one person in your family to be a “master of the hour” (or whatever amount of time works for your schedule), and have all the other family members be slaves. Give the master a crown to wear. Have the master give orders to the slaves, and have the slaves obey whatever the master says. (If you’ve got time, let everyone have a turn being the master.)

When you’ve finished playing the game, discuss these questions together:

• How is this game like or unlike God acting as a master?
• What does God want us to do as his slaves?
• How can you remember to do those things this week?

By serving others, we can help others see Jesus through our lives. Think of ways you can serve others. Share your ideas, and commit to doing a few of those things this week.
