We are concluding our unit on Jesus’ interactions with his disciples after his resurrection. The question for this unit is, “How do we know that God wants us to know Him? We can know that God wants us to know Him because He has revealed Himself through His Word.”  Our memory verse for this unit is John 17:3 (NIV), “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.””  Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be learning about the Great Commission and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus as we look at Matthew 28 We will see that Jesus came to earth as a baby, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross for our sins. He rose from the dead and invites us into God’s family forever. God wants us to know Him and to tell others about Him, too. We are to be disciples of Jesus and to help others become disciples of Jesus.
