Read the Bible Together

Romans 1:1-17 / Spark Story Bible Paul’s Letters
Talk About It!
Have fun asking question for all your family members!
Paul, Barnabas, and Peter were three people who helped to bring the message of God’s grace and Jesus’ love and to everyone. They met to talk about both difficult and wonderful things, just like we’re doing right now. They traveled to new places to talk to new people. What are some places you have visited? What are some places you would like to visit? What would you like people to know about Jesus? In addition to traveling, Paul wrote A LOT of letters to people in faraway places. Do you like to get letters or cards in the mail?
Dig Deeper: Today’s readings are about not being ashamed to share God’s love. How easy is it to share God’s love? Are there times that it’s hard? How can we have confidence in being bold and know God is right there with us?
Family Activity Choices
Pick activities to do together with supplies you have around your house!
Activity 1: “God knows our hearts” puzzle Some parts of Paul’s letters (to the Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, etc.) can be a bit “puzzling.” But his central message is that God knows our hearts. God knew we needed Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The gifts of Jesus’ love and the Holy Spirit’s power are for EVERYONE. Design your puzzle with the message “God knows our hearts” or another favorite message from Paul’s letters.
Activity 2: Thank Your Mail Carrier! Make a thank you card or leave a treat for your mail carrier to let them know you appreciate the hard work they do make sure you always get your mail!
“Dear God, Thank you for your gifts of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. You know us and love us so well. We love you, God! Amen.”
Bless Each Other
At the end of your time, give each other a special blessing to remember one of God’s promises.
Pass a note to each other that says, “God loves you and I do too!”
