January 28th & 29th Parent Note for Remix/Revolution
Hi Remix, Revolution & SPIN Parents!
We end our month on knowledge in Luke 4:1-13. After Jesus is baptized, God leads Him to the wilderness where Satan tempts Him. Satan twisted what Jesus knew about God and His Word. But Jesus knew Scripture backwards and forwards. Jesus leveraged what He knew from Scripture to use God’s truth to fight and win over evil.
Bottom Line: Discovering what God says helps you make the wise choice. When we read God’s word, we discover the truth about what God wants for our lives. And when we know that, it makes it easier for us to make the wise choice. We want kids to know God’s word and be able to use it to resist the temptation to do something wrong.
Our Memory Verse for January comes from Psalm 119:105, it reads, “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path” (NLT). When we dig into God’s word, we start to know how God wants us to live. God’s words act like a lamp that shows us the next steps to take on our journey through life. God’s word points the way towards a growing relationship with Jesus.
The most important thing you can do for young kids is to invite them into the story about a really big God. It’s a story that will always be bigger than they can explain or imagine, but God invites them to spend a lifetime discovering who He is and how He loves them. One of our goals in Kids’ Time is to partner with parents in raising kids to know God and trust Him as their Savior. One way you can help kids discover more about God is by using the resources on our Kids’ Time website, www.nhckidstime.com. Make sure you check out our weekly devotional with your child and the parent cue to go more in depth with your child about God’s Word. Make sure to also check out our video on baptism and talk to your child about whether they are ready. Please contact me if you would like to go over any other these resources.
Much love, Courtney
