We are concluding our short unit on some of the early responses to Jesus. We will learn that we are saved by faith in Jesus. The question for this unit is, How can we be saved? We are only saved through faith in Jesus.” Our memory verse for this unit is Hebrews 11:6 (NIV), “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we are looking at Peter’s decision to follow Jesus in Luke 5. We will learn that “Peter understood that he was a sinner and recognized that Jesus is God. He responded to Jesus’ grace and kindness by following Him. When we understand that Jesus is God and that we are sinners, we can turn to Him for forgiveness and follow Him by faith. ” As we marvel at Jesus’ miracles in His word and in our lives, may we respond with worship and follow Jesus!
