Elementary, October 17: The Passover

Hi Journey Kids parents!

The last of the plagues was the most devastating of all. Every firstborn in Egypt was to die. The Bible says that the penalty for sin is death – the Egyptians deserved this due punishment. But so did the Israelites. They were slaves but they were not without sin of their own. So, God provided for them a substitute – a sacrificial lamb. As God executed His judgment throughout Egypt, He would pass over every house that had been marked by the blood of the lamb. This is an important lesson because it’s not only their story – it’s ours.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Moses: The Passover

Big Idea: God is our rescuer, so I can choose to follow Him.

Memory Verse: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God’s eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

Sin still deserves death. But, praise God, He has provided a substitute. Jesus, on the cross, sacrificed His life for ours. God’s judgment passes over every heart that has been marked by His blood. If you’ve never accepted that incredible grace I pray that you would – right now.
