Israel and Ai (Joshua (7-8)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: destruction comes upon those who do not follow the word of God.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Isreal's defeat is due to Achan's sin
2. Achan is discovered and judged
3. Israel defeats Ai and enjoys the spoils
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Read 2 Corinthians 5:21.
Take time to remind the children that God always punishes sin. Achan was killed for taking the gold and silver. He deserved to be punished for his sin. We all deserve to be punished for our sin as well. The penalty for even one sin is death. Jesus took the penalty for our sin at the cross so we can be forgiven. All those who trust in the Lord had their sin paid for on the cross.
Family Discipleship - "Time" in the Home
We are on week 45 which starts on page 298 in the Long Story Short devotional. This is a great week to remind our kids that sin always produces death. It is for this reason that Jesus came and died in our place so that we could be forgiven and truly live. Because God knows everything it is useless to hide and pretend because His desire is to be close which is made possible through Jesus.
Pray about it! As a family, thank Jesus for coming to our rescue when we deserved punishment. Help each person in your family confess their sins and ask God for His forgiveness.
