The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, May 26. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God’s Law Brings the Jews to Repentance
Passage: Nehemiah 8–10
Principle: Believers respond to God’s Word by turning away from sin and humbly depending on Christ.
Praise: “I Love You, Lord”
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- How did the Israelites respond to Ezra reading God’s Word?
- What covenant did the people make?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By rejoicing that God has given us His Word.
- By repenting from sin and committing to obey God.
Memory Verse: Psalm 119:34
“Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart” (Psalm 119:34)
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of Nehemiah 8–10.
