Family Devos Week 6: Share about Jesus

FamilyDevo06Family Focus: Share about Jesus.

Godly Goal: To see the importance of telling other people about Jesus Christ.

Scripture of the Week: “Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.” Acts 4:32 (pdf).

Song Suggestions: 209 Be with Me Lord; 214 Go and Make Disciples; 733 Take the Lord with You; 908 This Little Light of Mine.

Daily Discussion:

  • Day 1: What is some good news that you can share? Why do people like to hear good news?
  • Day 2: What does it mean to “teach?” How can people not be familiar with Jesus?
  • Day 3: Who do you want to talk to about Jesus? Why don’t we like to hear bad news?
  • Day 4: What is the “Messiah?” Why is Jesus, our Messiah, good news?
  • Day 5: What does it mean to “proclaim?” Why can someone who has heard of Jesus still need us to talk to them about Jesus?
  • Day 6: What can stop us from talking to people about Jesus? What does it mean to persevere when talking to people about Jesus?
  • Day 7: Who have you talked to about Jesus this week? Why do people need to hear something repeatedly?

Prayer Focus: Pray for God to give your family the courage and wisdom to talk to other people about Jesus.
