I Can Only Imagine
After dinner (or while riding in the car) ask your kids to imagine what their ideal day would be like. To get the discussion started, you could ask questions such as: What would you do? Where would you go? What would the weather be like? What would you eat? How late would you stay up?
Jesus is the Returning King. He said He would return and bring us to live with Him forever. Remember Jesus said, “I am preparing a place for you!” (John 14:2). Someday those who believe in Him will live in this wonderful place filled with adventure and beauty. Heaven will be better than anything we could ever imagine.
Read John 14:1-3.
Ask kids to draw a picture of what they would like their home in Heaven to look like.
Jesus is preparing a place for us in Heaven. He came to earth and died, so He could take away our sins and we could live with Him forever in Heaven. Our home in Heaven will be better than anything we can even imagine! (You can read more about Heaven in Revelation 21 and 22.)
Go on a surprise adventure with your kids. Build anticipation early in the week by telling them you are planning a surprise for them. Don’t tell them when or where. When it’s time, pile everyone in the car. It can be as simple as going to a park, playing on the swings, and eating your lunch on a blanket. Have a fun time together!
Jesus promised that He would return. We don’t know when, but we want to be watching and ready when He comes!
