For Families with Kids at Home:
A relationship with God isn’t just for a certain group of people. It’s not just for those who grew up in church or those with know a bunch of worship songs. Paul tells us that ANYONE can have a relationship with God because of what Jesus did on the cross! This week, have a conversation with your kids about who can be friends with God—is there anyone they don’t think could be friends with God? If so, encourage them that anyone can be friends with God!
