Family Service


First of all, if you came here last week and noticed there was no new lesson - I'm super sorry! Many of you e-mailed - some who know me knew I had an emergency and was in a hospital sent prayers, notes and cards! WOW! I felt so loved and cared for! The good news is, I'm home and doing MUCH BETTER! God answered prayers and my recovery was quick, though I'm still on the mend. So you can still keep praying for me.
NEXT SUNDAY WE KICK OFF A NEW SERIES, so check out the SNEAK PEEK at the bottom of the page.
TODAY, you get a DOUBLE-FEATURE! You get some stuff from LAST WEEK and THIS WEEK! So have some extra fun as we wrap up Bible Blockbusters!

Double Feature Videos:

Director Gary Crant is interviewing actors for his next Big Bible Blockbuster movie! Who is it this week?
You can read these stories in Genesis 25 and Genesis 27.  In this Bible Blockbuster story, Jacob Swindles his brother out of his birthright... and later out of his blessing from his father! Even though God had made great promises to him, he still thought he had to cheat and steal and be sneaky to get what he wanted and needed. He didn't understand that he could trust God to do what He had promised in His time and in His way. We don't need to cheat and trick and lie to get what is best for us! God KNOWS what we need and what is best for us!

READ: JEREMIAH 29:11 God has a plan for our life, and we need to just trust and obey and watch what God will do to lead our life and see what He will do for us as we follow Him!
You can read this story in Genesis 32-33. Jacob finally decides to make things right with his brother. But he is pretty nervous! So when he goes to meet him, he sends ahead all kinds of gifts! You might send toys, or snacks, or even money. In those days he sends a bunch of animals. (Phew!) But his brother just wants to see him. They hug and it's a wonderful scene of two brothers restoring a friendship that had been broken for a very long time - too long! If you have a friendship that has been broken, whether you broke it, or the friend did it, the sooner you forgive, or ask for forgiveness, the better! Life is too short to let petty arguments ruin relationships. "I'm sorry" and "I forgive you," are the two most powerful sentences that a person can say, they have the power to change lives!

READ: Luke 17:3 "...if your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him."
Is there someone you need to forgive? Or maybe there is someone you need to ask to forgive
I know someone who everyone needs to be reconciled to. Do you know who that is? What about God? That’s right, God! Everyone has sinned against God, and so our relationship with God has been broken. Jesus came to reconcile us to God.
READ: 2 Corinthians 5:18 “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
How can we be RECONCILED to God? It’s as easy as A, B, C.
A = ADMIT you have sinned, meaning you’ve done something wrong. (Romans 3:23) B = BELIEVE that Jesus came and died and rose again for you! (Romans 5:8)
C = CALL on Jesus to forgive you, and He will! (Romans 10:9-10)

Learn it - Live it!

THE FINAL MOVIE PROPS: Clap Board and Tickets

A CLAP BOARD is used by a director to show which scene is being filmed and which take they are on. A director may have a scene filmed many times until they get it right. They keep increasing the number on the clapboard and film that first so that later, when they are editing, they can easily find the scenes and takes they want to use. Once the film is done, they can delete and throw out all the mess-up takes that they don’t need. You may hear a director say, “Take two!” or “Take twenty!” They will keep trying until they get it right.
In a movie, the director will keep re-doing a scene until they get it right. Did you know that God gives second chances too? It’s called forgiveness. When we mess up, God lets us try again. Sometimes there is a cost to sin, just like in a movie where there may be wasted money or time when they mess up. But unlike a movie, God won’t give up on us! He has promised that He will finish what He started in you!
READ: Philippians 1:6 And so I am sure that God, who began this good work in you, will carry it on until it is finished on the Day of Christ Jesus.

A TICKET: We need a ticket to get into a movie or a theme park. Whether it is an old paper one like this, perhaps now it’s a code in your smart phone! But it shows that you have paid and can be admitted.
Did you know you need a ticket to get into heaven? You might wonder how much it is? $10? $100? $1,000? $1,000,000? Nope. Any guesses? It’s FREE! Jesus paid the price for us, and HE is our ticket!
READ: Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
