PREPARE FOR NEXT WEEK

Feast of Unleavened Bread: Remembering and Celebrating God as Redeemer

DID YOU KNOW

Share these facts to get the conversation started.
 
• The Israelite people celebrated seven feasts or festivals: Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Festival of First Fruits, Feast of Harvest, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles (or Booths).
• During the feasts, the Israelites ate, danced, sang, played instruments, prayed, and offered sacrifices to God.
• The Feast of Unleavened Bread celebrates how God miraculously delivered the Israelites from the bondage of Egypt and ultimately delivers us from our bondage to sin.
• This feast was fulfilled by Christ’s sinless sacrifice on the cross.

CONNECT AS A FAMILY

Catch your child doing something good and celebrate together. Maybe she showed kindness to her siblings or listened and obeyed the first time you asked her to brush her teeth and go to bed. Catch your kids by surprise and design a celebration for their good choices. Use this celebration time as an opportunity to share with your children that everyone makes mistakes. Read together Romans 3:21–26. Thank God for sending Jesus to be our Redeemer.
 
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
 
• According to the Bible, who has sinned?
• What does the word Redeemer mean?
• How can you show that you’re thankful your sins have been forgiven?
 
These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God redeems us into your everyday life as a family.
