Read Genesis 3:1-7
The story of sin’s beginning and God’s faithful love start with the story of Adam and Eve. But both accounts continue throughout the Bible. Just as Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God, so we sin. Sin is anything we think or do that separates us from God. Thus, the need for someone to come and save all people from their sins began long before the birth of Jesus.
Let’s think of the sins – the bad words, thoughts, and actions – that we have done recently. Then let’s talk about them with each other. Remember, God sent Jesus to free us from our sins.
Thank you, God, for loving us so much
That you for sending Jesus to save us from our sins.
Keep us strong when we are tempted to do wrong. Amen
