Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…God loves you", with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…God loves you

February is the month to hug your husband and kids and tell them you love them! And it is the perfect month to begin the topic of God’s love for you in your family time study! This month’s family time topic from the “Sky Ranch Family Devotional: Follow the Leader” is on “Jesus was sent to bring you love and peace“ and the weekly discussion is on “God loves you and Jesus is the proof.“ The message in the devotional focuses on God’s amazing love that He has shown you in His Son, Jesus. God cares for you and wants to have a relationship with you.  

This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to reveal if anyone feels unloved by God. Sometimes it is hard for kids and adults to truly believe that God’s love is for them. Pray that God will give you the words to say and share that will encourage your family to trust God’s love and grow in relationship with Him.

I will be praying for you!

This week we are in the  5th  Topic and 22nd  Family Time (or page 47 ) of the Sky Ranch Family Devotional “Follow the Leader”…
Family Time 22:
Topic 5: Jesus brings you love and peace…God loves you and Jesus is the proof
Talk with God: Read… Scriptures and questions below.
John 3:16  For God  so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
  • In John 3:16, God sending Jesus so that you would have eternal life showed what?

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
  • In Rom. 5:8, God loved you when?

1 John 4:10  In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins.
  • In 1 John 4:10, Jesus’ payment for your sins shows what?

Ephesians 2:4  But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,  5  even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)
  • In Eph. 2:4, what is the reason that God made you alive in Jesus?

Walk with God: Discuss…  After reading these scriptures, is there any doubt that God loves you?  His love impacts and changes you forever.  Why is it difficult to believe that God loves you sometimes?
What is His proof that He loves you?

Prayer suggestion…  Ask God to reveal His love to you.

Family Time 22: 
Leader Answers:
  • That God loved you
  • While you were a sinner God loved you
  • That God loved you
  • God’s love and mercy
  • Discussion ideas: Jesus is the proof. God loves you so much that while you were God’s enemies, He sent Jesus with a salvation plan for you. Yet people still question God’s love for them. No one seems to question God’s love as long as things are going well; but often the first moment something goes poorly, it is common to question God’s love for you. But it is in those difficult moments that God changes you and shapes your character if you listen to Him. As a family, discuss how you have grown in difficult times.  We often grow the most when a loving God allows us to work through difficulty. What has been a good outcome from a difficult situation for you?
