The Royal Law – Faith-at-Home Focus (Oct. 4, 2020)
Every week our faith-at-home idea follows a pattern.
-The first Sunday in each month is about Bible memorization.
-The second Sunday is about prayer.
-The third has a Bible focus.
-And the fourth is a service activity to love and help those around us.
The ideas are connected to the theme for each Sunday’s service.
They are meant to be both simple-yet-meaningful and adaptable.
We know it’s a tough time. Some weeks are good… and some weeks are, well, not so good! Let’s lose the guilt about not ‘having it all together.’
At the same time, let’s be intentional about taking the lead in our homes as we seek to trust and follow Jesus together.
Week of Sunday, October 4th
Schedule: 1st Sunday
Focus: Bible Memorization
This week’s focus is “The Royal Law.” What is the royal law, you might ask? It’s from James 2:8 and is October’s vital verse (memory verse): “If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.”
The reason James calls it “royal,” is most likely because it’s so important to Jesus, our King!
During the kids’ time on October 4th, we saw a video of Laura Ruttan, our Sunday School Coordinator, singing a new and memorable jingle to help us remember. (To the tune of O Canada.)
In addition, we invite everyone to visibly put the verse somewhere in their house. You can print out the graphic that is at the bottom of this post, or even just write it out (in any way you’d like) and put it where you will see it.
As the week goes on, commit it to memory.
Remember, the more you get into God’s word, the more God’s word gets into you.
Seize opportunities not only to memorize it, but when the opportunity arises, to discuss when you see it in action.
