We are continuing our study about the time of the Judges in Children’s Ministry. We are learning that the fair punishment for sin is death. But as our memory verse for this unit, Romans 6:23, reminds us, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Have you ever felt hopeless? This week, we are looking at the story of Ruth and Naomi from the book of Ruth. Ruth and Naomi had lost everything and, at least Naomi, felt helpless. God saw their needs and provided a family for them with Boaz, a close relative. Boaz was a kinsman-redeemer, someone who bought back that which was lost to help their relatives. From the family of Ruth and Boaz’s great-grandson (King David), Jesus would come into the world and in His great love for people, redeem all who put their trust in Him alone.

Use the Family Devotional to learn more as a family this week. Remember that in Jesus, we have hope no matter how hopeless our situation looks. Jesus is more than just a friend. Jesus is our kinsman-redeemer. Thank you, Jesus, for redeeming us from our sin!

The Family Devotional includes opportunities for families to read and memorize God’s Word, share a worship experience, do activities and more!

Registration for our Family Experience with MrJ, August 1-4, 2022 from 5:00-8:30 PM, is now open! Registration and information is available ONLINE.
