Note on content: The author of this lesson really talks a lot about how Jesus remembers everything we have done and does not talk about how Jesus forgives and chooses to forgive and forget our sins when we confess them. (He talks about that more in a few lessons.) Please talk with your kids about how Jesus forgives and forgets the sins we confess during this lesson. It is a good idea to talk about all God remembers in light of the reality he chooses to forget our sins when we ask for forgiveness. Good texts to look up are: Hebrews 8:12 & 10:17; Isaiah 43:25; Jeremiah 31:34; and Micah 7:18-19.
Activity: Make a paper book, decorate and title it “Book of Life”. Talk about how those who love Jesus and follow Him have their names in the “Book of Life”. Have family members put their names in as a sign and remembrance that they are followers of Jesus.
Prepare the ornament and hang on the tree.
