Theme of the week: CHRIST

God created the world which he called “GOOD”.  Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating from the tree which brought sin into the world.  God did not leave humanity abandoned but came to earth as Jesus.

 

Tuesday – Bible Reading

Philippians 2:5-11

…Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, thank you for coming to earth to save us.  You are the Lord of the world yet you were so humble you were born in a stable.  Thank you for loving us so much you came to save us, despite the sin we commit.  Help us as we reflect on your part in God’s big story.

Amen

Thursday – Discussion

Discuss in small groups or as a class.

  • Who is your favourite Superhero?  Why do you like them?
  • What problems do superheroes solve?
  • Can you think of a superhero that sacrificed themselves?
  • How is Jesus the saviour?  And how was his death and resurrection a saving act?

 

Prayer

Lord,

Without you we are in desperate need of a saviour.  Sin came into the world and separated us from you.  Thank you for coming to bridge the gap back to you and bring connection back into the chaos.  Please forgive us of our sin and help us enjoy life in all its fulness with you.

Amen.

 

Friday – Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.

Amen.
