The focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach your family that God showed His love by giving us Jesus. Jesus was the very first Christmas present.
John 3:16 “God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son.”
Learn the Memory Verse together and say it throughout the week to help your family remember and apply what they have learned.
STEP 2. READ THE BIBLE AND WORSHIP
Joni Eareckson Tada
Do you like running and jumping? Do you like swimming and kicking a ball about?
Joni Eareckson Tada liked all those things too. She liked to run and swim and ride horses and play tennis. But then, one day, she dived into a lake and hurt her neck. She hurt her neck so badly that she couldn't move her legs or her feet. She couldn't move her arms or her hands either. That made Joni very sad - then she remembered her friend Jesus.
She knew that Jesus was with her and loved her. She knew that bad things happened to Jesus too and that he understood. She knew that one day, when she went to live with her friend Jesus forever, She would be able to run and, jump again.
So Joni has spent her life telling people about her friend Jesus. In books, on the radio, in talks and through pictures painted with a brush her mouth, Joni has told people how Jesus is always with her, always loves her and always helps her. She has told them how Jesus loves everybody - whether they can run or not; Whether they can ump or not; whether they can see or not; Whether they can hear or not sand how one day Jesus friends will all run and jump and hear and see when they live with him forever.
