December 20: The Cross

*Wrap a cross for today's gift. We have a cross ornament that I use every year for this day's activity.
  • Read Hebrews 10:9-10.
"Then he said, 'Here I am, I have come to do your will.' He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."

  • Give your children the wrapped cross to open.

  • Talk about why Jesus was born as a baby (found in today's verse: "to do your will").

  • Ask your children what God's will was for Jesus' life.

  • Share the gospel with your children again.

  • Look at the cross with your children and discuss the importance of this symbol to us today.

  • Place the cross in a place where your family will see it for the next several days. (Ours gets placed on the Christmas tree because it is a cross ornament.)

  • Pray, thanking God for His perfect will. Thank Jesus for carrying out the will of God. Ask God to remind you of the sacrifice given on the cross.
