For Further Learning: Beware the Complacency of “Once Saved, Always Saved”

For Families with Kids at Home:
In the Old Testament, God called the Israelites “His people” and used Israel in various ways to demonstrate His love and mercy, and to make a way for Jesus to come into the world. Even for those of us who are not Jewish, we’ve received the gift of Jesus because of God’s faithfulness to Israelites. So, God used Israel to save the whole world! Take time this week to pray with your kids and thank God for His faithfulness from the Old Testament to today!
