We may outgrow childhood clothes and car seats, but children of God never outgrow their need for grace and peace. In this lab, Pastor John reminds us what Christians need more than water and air.
Principle for Bible Reading
Turn Bible Study into Prayer
We all need to be reminded from time to time that the Bible is not a text to be merely dissected, analyzed, and mined for new insights. God dissects us through his word. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).
So, always make sure you respond to God and his word through prayer.
- What is grace and peace? How would you describe it to children?
- Do you think Christians still need grace and peace? Grace for what? Peace with whom?
- How can God’s grace and peace propel you to share it with others this week?
