Heart of Christmas Advent Devotional for Kids Day 5!





NOTE: These devotional will mainly be verses and questions. My goal is to ensure that my children understand the meaning of the verse and it how it relates to the true celebration of Christmas. I will listen to their response and lead our discussion based on their thoughts, so in reality the questions may change. I will base my responses on their level of understanding of the verse we are discussing. We will then hang the ornament depicted each day on our special little tree. 

See my original post detailing the inspiration behind my Heart of Christmas Devotional HERE!

Day 5 – What Jesus did for us.

Today's Verse:


"But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, 'Abba, Father.' So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir." (Galatians 4:4-7, NIV)

What do you think it means to be under the law?

Once we accept God's amazing gift of His son, what happens?

Who are we now?

This verse is very special to me because just as God's adopts us and makes us His children so God called us to adopt you! As soon as we adopted you, you became our children forever, just as we are children of God forever!

Memory Verse 


(As a four year old, Grace will have two verses or parts of a verse to work on each week. Anthony will have larger sections to memorize because he is nine and memorizes verses at a rapid pace. NOTE: I learned this passage in the KJV which is not the usual version I memorize in now, but it will be forever embedded in my heart in KJV. Plus, for this particular passage, KJV has such a lovely poetic flow to it, thus my children will learn it in KJV as well.)

Let's practice our verses again!

Grace – “’Glory to God in the Highest, peace on earth, good will to men!’” (Luke 2:14)

Anthony – “And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host, praising God and saying "Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men.” (Luke
2:13-14)

Blessings this Christmas Season,
