Bible: Read Romans 8:35-39
Let’s memorize the last part of verse 39 “(Nothing) will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Write the verse on a piece of paper and then cut it into pieces like a puzzle. (1 for each person) Put your puzzles back together and say the verse out loud after you finish it. Do it a couple times, until you can say the verse without looking.
- During this time, because of the COVID 19 virus, we are to isolate or separate ourselves from other people. What is the thing that you miss the most? What do you like the most?
- The Bible tells us that there is absolutely nothing that can separate us from the love of Christ. Read again the list (Romans 8:35-39) of things Paul tells us won’t separate us from God's love.
- What are some troubles that you can have? Remind them that those troubles can't separate them from the love of Christ.

- What are some worries that we can have? Remind them that our future worries can never separate us from the love of Christ.
- Does anyone know John 3:16? Say it or look it up. God showed his great big love for us, by dying on the cross for us.
- In response to this love the apostle Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 5:14-15 that, “Christ’s love compels (or motivates) us…that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again” What are some practical ways that we can show the love of Christ to people, even in these days of isolation?
