Guilty:  To have done a certain wrong 
Justice: God is completely just in that He is the perfect standard on what is righteous and what is not; in other words, His righteousness decides how things are supposed to be—the moral perfection He requires. Anything that falls short of His righteousness is sin. 
Judgement: The resulting punishment that we earn due to our sin. The judgment or punishment we get for our sin is death and being eternally separated  from God in a place of eternal pain. 
Justification: Justification is how a person is declared “right” with God and “not guilty” by God despite being guilty of sin. Being justified through faith in Jesus Christ not only grants forgiveness of sins, but also the perfect righteousness of Christ.

Series Aim: To help kids understand the power of what Jesus did on the cross.

Talk to your child about what they just learnt by asking them these questions:

Toggle Content
  1. What is the series you are on now? What are you learning about? 
    • Power of the cross 
    • We are learning how Jesus’ work on the cross is able to save us from sin. 

  2. What is the Big Point this week?  
    • We learnt today that Jesus Made Me Right With God. 

  3. Have you ever done something that got you into trouble and I had to pay the price to make things right? E.g. Broken a window at home, and I (your parents) had to pay the price for fixing my own window.
    Allow children to share.  
    • This is actually what Jesus did for us! 
    • We did something wrong against God, which we are not able to pay on our own. So God was the one who paid the price to make us right with Him. 

  4. Why do we need to be made right with God?  
    • We need to be made right with God because we have sin in our lives, and God is a holy, righteous and perfect God. 

  5. What is sin and how does it affect us and God?  
    • Sin is whenever we don’t obey God.  
    • Because sin is whenever we fail to obey God, having sin makes us guilty in God’s eyes. 
    • Sin separates us from God and when we have sin, we cannot be near God. 
    • Also, the result of sin is death. 

  6. How did Jesus make us right with God?  
    • Jesus paid the price of our punishment for sin which is death, by being the one to die on the cross in our place.  
    • Because of what Jesus did, sin is paid for and our guilt is cancelled. Jesus made us innocent and right with God.

Bondage: To be made a slave of something or trapped in something.  
Enslave: To make someone or something your slave  
Slave: Someone or something that is forced to work and do only what the master allows them to do. Before Jesus’ redemption work, we are slaves to our sin which affects, controls and destroys us.  
Redemption: An act of purchasing an individual out from under the bondage of another. Jesus is our redemption. His death on the cross set us free from the chains of sin.

    We learnt today that Jesus Sets us Free from Sin

  3. What did you learn about sin in this week’s lesson? 
    Sin is a terrible master that controls, affects and destroys us.  
    • Parents can also share an instance where sin has affected you and how God has helped you. Share appropriately how God is able to help you through, you never know how much your kids will want to learn from various stories and testimonies of your life! 

  4. How can a person be set free from sin? 
    A person can only be set free from sin by believing in Jesus because only Jesus’ perfect life was able to tear away and set us free from the bondage of sin.  

  5. Parents may want to share how did you come to believe in Jesus! This can bring a great impact to your kids’ understanding of how real God is. You can even ask your children what affects them from truly believing in Jesus. Pray together for them to hear more from God and for them to discover more of God for themselves!

Hey Parents! Read here first!

Through this period of uncertainty, we are praying for you and your family, and we are here to support you in leading your child to learn more about God and cultivate godly character! Each week, you can access the HopeKids Online experience which includes a fun and interactive video, printable colouring and activity pages and a conversation guide to help the children process what they are learning.

Here’s how a Stay Home Sunday could look like:

Look through the HopeKids Service Experience!
Prepare and print out the Kids Activities in the pack.
Prepare writing materials such as pencils, pens and colour pencils.

Invite your child to join in the time of praise and worship together!
After the time of worship, your child can start on the kids activities as you listen to the sermon.

HopeKids Online Service will be streamed on Church Online after the adult service ends.

After service, ask your child what he / she has learnt about God today or even share what you have personally learnt. Take some time to pray together.

We really want to encourage families to leverage this time to be together and focus on things of eternal significance. Daddy and Mummy are the best role models! When kids see how you seek, worship and learn about God on a daily basis, it inspires them to want to believe in God and do their best for God too!

We look forward to hearing stories of this precious time and memories made together with God and each other as the whole family draws closer to God together.

HopeKids Team

Simple guide on family devotion:

1) Keep it simple and short (especially for those with young children)

2) Start with Praise/worship  (use children P&W songs)

3) Read and share a passage from the Bible (can follow Hopekids passage)

4) Pray together

Keep it flexible, be prepared to change schedule due to unforeseen circumstances; it may look different for different families
