Jesus Was Born

Luke 2:1-20

On Sunday our RADIUS Kids learned that Jesus is the true reason for celebrating Christmas.  As we heard the story of Jesus’ birth, our kids were focused on why Jesus was born. Jesus was not an ordinary baby. He entered the world as a tiny baby but he was destined to be our Savior. Jesus lived his life to become the perfect sacrifice to save us all from our sins.

It is our hope this month that each child will learn the verse John 3:16 to help ingrain in their hearts just how much God loves us.  He loves us so much that he sent and sacrificed his one and only son.  Through our belief in him, we are promised the wonderful gift of eternal life.  That is the best gift ever!

Bible Verse

“For God so loved world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Family Discussion Starters:

  1. What is the best news you’ve ever heard?
  2. Where was Jesus born? Why?
  3. Whom can you tell the good news?

Family Activities

  • Talk about the day your kids were born or when an adoption was finalized. Who were the first people who came to visit? Talk about the joy of that day.
  • As a family make a nativity instead of a gingerbread house. This gives your family an opportunity to talk through Jesus’ birth and the significance of each person who was present in a fun way. It helps keep your family’s focus on Jesus – the most important reason for the season. What a reason to truly celebrate! Check out this website for ideas on how to create an edible nativity.
