Family Devotion: God Gives Us Grace

by Rev. Jill Waltz

Ephesians-6-24Play: Play a few rounds of Simon Says. After a couple of rounds, allow one of the eliminated players to remain in the game. Say, "Though you deserve to be out because you didn’t follow Simon's commands, I’m going to pretend it never happened." Play again, allowing that person to continue in the game.

Talk: Each time we sin against God, we are not deserving of His forgiveness, yet He freely gives it to us. That’s called grace. Ephesians 6:24 tells us that God's grace is available to all who love Him. Because of God's grace, we receive forgiveness and many other blessings. What are some ways that God has shown His grace to you?

Pray: Thank God that He freely gives grace to you. Pray that you would be able to share His grace with others.
