Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Receiving Jesus’ peace", with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Receiving Jesus’ peace

This month’s family time topic from the “Sky Ranch Family Devotional: Follow the Leader” is on “Jesus brings you love and peace“ and the weekly discussion is on “Jesus’ peace and receiving Jesus’ peace.“

This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to help you lead anyone who is not a peace with God into a personal relationship with Jesus. If there are questions about whether or someone in your family really trusts in Jesus, ask them, do you believe that you are saved? And if you were to die today, would you go to heaven? If there answer is no or I don’t know but they want to be saved, then lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus by praying the prayer in the leader answers.

Do you have questions or need prayer for your family? Email me at
I will be praying for you!

This week we are in the  5th  Topic and 27th  Family Time (or page  52) of the Sky Ranch Family Devotional “Follow the Leader”…

Family Time 27: 
Topic 5: Jesus brings you love and peace…Jesus’ peace and receiving Jesus’ peace
Talk with God: Read… Scriptures and questions below.
Colossians 3:15  And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.
  • In Col. 3:15, what is to rule in your heart?

Romans 14:17  for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
  • In Rom. 14:17, what is God’s Kingdom about?

Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,  peace , patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  23  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
  • In Gal. 5:22, are love and peace two of the results of God’s Spirit?

2 Corinthians 13:11  Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in  peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
  • In 2 Cor. 13:11, among other things…live in peace and who will be with you?

Walk with God: Discuss… These passages show that God’s peace is not something that you are born with nor is it something you can create. This peace comes from God and it is a result of God’s Holy Spirit…do you want this type of peace?  How do you receive this type of peace?

Prayer suggestion…  Pray for God to help you live life in peace.

Family Time 27: 
Leader Answers:
  • The peace of Christ
  • Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit
  • Yes
  • The God of love and peace
  • Discussion ideas: If you want this type of peace then pray the prayer of salvation.  Pray confessing your sin and admitting your need of salvation from sin and death. Commit to the decision to stop intentionally or habitually sinning and recognize that you need God’s help from His Holy Spirit to stop sinning. Accept the Lord Jesus Christ’s free gift of salvation for you.  Pray asking for God’s peace, confessing that you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and want Him to be Lord of your life and desiring His indwelling Holy Spirit to help and guide you. Now, have faith and act on your belief in Jesus. Tell others about your experience, too.  You are to believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and Lord of your life. Welcome to the family of God! What can you tell God about His indescribable gift to you?
