Key Passage: Genesis 17:1 “I will keep My covenant between Me and you…to be your God.”
Big Picture Question: Who always keeps His promises? God always keeps His promises.
Christ Connection: God fulfilled His promise to Abraham by giving him a son. Isaac was the hope of Abraham and Sarah for a future and a legacy. God fulfilled His promise to the world by giving us His Son. Jesus ultimately fulfilled God’s promise to Abraham, and He is the hope of the world for salvation and redemption.
Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),
This week in The Gospel Project for Kids, we heard the story of Abraham’s sons! That’s right, two sons!
Abraham and Sarah took into their own hands the fulfillment of God’s promise to bring a son into the world. God, as always, did not need their help—only their faithfulness.
God fulfilled His promise to Abraham, but only in His timing, not Abraham’s. Isaac was the hope of Abraham and Sarah for a future. The ultimate fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham is the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the hope of the world for salvation and redemption.
Family Activity: At the beginning of the week, encourage each family member to make a promise to God (to pray each day, memorize a Bible verse, show someone God’s love, read the Bible every day, and so forth). Write the promise below for each family member. At the end of the week, share and document how well each person did at keeping their promise. Talk about how God always keeps His promises.
