The world has changed. Fear, panic, and anxiety have become common in the midst of a crisis with no identifiable end.
But times of great fear require the Church to be what Jesus calls us to be: a people of great faith.
1. Faith is believing that God is who He says He is, that He will do what He says He will do, and living our lives accordingly. Has your faith impacted the way you've responded, and even felt, in the midst of our current circumstances? If so, how? If not, why?
2. Read through Hebrews 11:1. In this letter we are given examples of people that lived with great faith. Whose story do you most identify with in this season? Explain.
3. What are some things you can do to respond in faith to what you are going through?
1. What are some things that you're scared of? (Stop for discussion, then move on to the day's big idea from Sunday's sermon.) Today's big idea is this: You can trust God no matter what! Even when what is going on in our lives doesn't make sense we can trust God, because he is bigger than anything you'll face! Even the things that scare you and don't make sense.
2. The Bible is filled with stories of people who faced scary and tough circumstances, but still trusted God and followed Him. They are heroes of faith. Who are some of your favorite heroes of faith? (Note: if your child can't think of any, share some of your favorite stories and heroes.)
