Parents, today your child learned about Jesus’ ascension into heaven. Help your child understand that Jesus fulfilled God’s plan to save people from sin, He lives in heaven, and someday He will return.
Have you committed to reading the Bible as a family? A great tool to use is the Daily Bible Reading found on the One Conversation™ page. Today’s verse is Luke 4:32 “They were astonished at His teaching because His message had authority.”
Our Weekly Bible Verse reminds us that Jesus is coming back! He will return! Acts 1:11b says “This Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen Him going into heaven.”
On Sunday we learned that the ascension describes Jesus’ return to heaven and that Jesus promised His followers He would come back to earth. Jesus will return one day. Here is an article to read about what we should do while we wait: http://www.lifeway.com/Article/sermon-while-you-wait-acts-1
Our Daily Bible Reading for today is Psalm 119:97 and is such a reminder to meditate on God’s Word every day. “How I love Your instruction! It is my meditation all day long.” Set a foundation in your household and be the example of how to hide His Word in your heart.
