Hello again! We’re already on week four of our study of the big-picture story of the Bible called The Thread. This week’s lesson was a really wonderful time of learning about Noah and God’s covenant promises.
This week, the lesson was entitled “The Faith of Noah and God’s Hatred of Sin” and it focused on helping students understand the depth to the story of Noah. In God’s covenant with Noah, we see a measure of grace and forgiveness. After all, God allowed humankind a second chance even though He certainly knew that we would be a sinful people still. This is a foreshadowing of the perfect covenant that Christ would usher in, a covenant that once and for all provided perfect forgiveness of our sins.
We looked at the following Scripture passages:
- Genesis 6:9-22
- Genesis 7:11-24
- Genesis 8:13-19
- Genesis 9:8-17
- Matthew 26:26-29
You’ll enjoy reading these powerful passages that show us the power of God’s covenant faithfulness.
Next Steps . . .
During the next week as you have time to talk with your child, consider asking the following questions:
- You talked a lot about what a covenant is this week. What was the difference between the covenant God made with Noah and the one that Jesus made with us?
- How does Jesus confirming His covenant with us through His sacrifice on the cross make you feel? (As a parent, share what it means for you to belong to the Lord.)
- How do we see Noah’s life changed through the covenant God made with Him? How would your life be changed if God did the same thing for you?
Thank you for all you that you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to call me.
