Bible Story Reference: Matthew 1:1-17,Genesis 3:15, Genesis 12:1-3, Numbers 24:17
I know that You can do all things and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
God created the heavens and the earth. And then He asked the man and the woman to take care of it – have dominion over it (dominion means to rule over) and to multiply. The man and the woman then sinned against God, after falling to the temptation of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. God punished them by casting them out of the Garden. But something worse had happened, man died spiritually, just as God had warned them. And they were under the bondage of Sin.
God wanted to save man, so He gave Adam and Eve a son named Seth, through whose offspring salvation would come.
Abraham was a descendant of Seth. God called Him, for the same purpose, that man would get saved.
Abraham had a son called Isaac, who had a son called Jacob, who had many sons. Who became the nation of Israel.
God called someone else called David from the line of Abraham, to be King. The King of the Nation Israel.
Over time people kept on sinning, even the ones God called because they were not truly the promised offspring who would crush the head of the serpent.
That offspring is Jesus. Who is a son of Adam, a son of Abraham, and a son of David.
Through Jesus, man received redemption.
Jesus is the true offspring, the true King, the true seed that crushed the head of the serpent, the savior. Through Him, man is able to overcome sin, man can be free and man can have true dominion.
Jesus is the Son of God, through whom we become adopted sons into the family of God.
God is merciful, He set out to save man and He accomplished it.
No purpose of God can be thwarted.
We should worship God for He has a great plan for our lives and
He is faithful to bring all of them to fruition.
Thank you, Lord, for your care for men, that you set out to save us through your son Jesus. May everyone come to know you and worship you in Christ. Amen.
My Family Tree
What You Need
Begin by tracing your hand on paper. You will need about 5 to 7 hands traced.
Cut the hand shapes out.
Create the trunk of your tree from brown or black paper. A simple long rectangle will do.
Once the trunk has been created, use the glue to glue the hands to the top. You want to branch them out so they look like a nice and full tree.
Use the markers to start writing on the tree branches the various members of your family. Start at the top of the tree with your name, then under it add the name of your parents. Branch off further to create the names of siblings, then aunts and uncles, and then grandparents.
