Advent Day 5

Isaac and the Lamb

Read: Genesis 22:1-13 and John 1:29

Special verse: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” – John 1:29

Discuss: God asked Abraham to do something very difficult, but he obeyed God because he was faithful.  Share one time you chose to obey even though it was hard to do.  What does it mean to make a sacrifice?  In the Old Testament of the Bible, God asks his people to offer sacrifices of animals to cover their sins. Who is the Lamb of God? How will he take away the sin of the world?

Week 1 Craft: See instructions on how to make a colorful votive holder here.  We recommend using a battery operated tea light for younger kids.
