We are starting a short unit on some special conversations with Jesus and how we know He loves us. The question for this unit is, How do we know God loves us? We can know that God loves us because He gave us Jesus to forgive the sins of the world. Our memory verse for this unit is Romans 5:8 (NIV), ”But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we are learning about Jesus’ late night conversation with Nicodemus about eternal life in John 3. We will learn that “Nicodemus wanted life with God, but he could not do anything to earn it. Eternal life is a gift. God showed His love by sending His one and only Son to rescue people from sin. Everyone who believes in Him receives God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus.” God certainly gives good gifts!
