This week, our Faithkids learned that God sent a great flood into the world because it was full of sin. From this flood, God rescued Noah and his family and placed a magnificent rainbow in the sky as a reminder that never again would He send such a great flood into the world to punish all sin. This story points ahead to the even greater rescue through God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus was completely without sin and yet he came to take our punishment in our place for our sin. When we trust in Jesus, He will save us from the punishment our sins deserve.
As a reminder of God’s promise to save us from the punishment of our sin through Jesus Christ, our Faithkids created rainbows from paper plates. On a raindrop dangling from the rainbow, we wrote the memory verse: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Certainly, ALL of us have sinned and therefore fall short of the glory of God. We are thankful for Jesus who was the only perfectly righteous One to be able to take the punishment for our sin. Hopefully, by looking at the rainbow throughout the week, our Faithkids can be reminded that they can trust in Jesus to save them from the punishment of their sin.
