- John 3: 14-16
Nicodemus was a Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews. He came to Jesus at night in Jerusalem.
Jesus taught that we must be born again. Without Jesus, we are separated from God. Our hearts are hard, and we love sin more that we love God. But God can soften people’s hearts. Jesus offers new life to those who trust in Him for salvation.
How was the bronze serpent being lifted up like Jesus being lifted up?
Like the serpent, Jesus was lifted up on the cross. He died for our sins and was raised from the dead. Like the Israelites with snakebites, we can’t do anything to save ourselves. But we can look to Jesus for salvation.
Can a person get into Heaven by doing enough good things? Why or why not?
God wants us to obey Him, but the Bible say everyone sins (Rom. 3:23). If we had to obey God perfectly to go to Heaven, no one would ever get to Heaven! We are accepted by God when we trust in Jesus, who lived a perfect life and died the death that we deserve for our sins.
How is being apart from God like being in the dark? How can we bring friends and family members into the light of the gospel?
The Bible says that Jesus is the light of the world. Before we trust in Jesus, we live in darkness. It’s difficult to see in the dark! God lights up the path of our lives and shows us what is true. We can tell others about what Jesus has done and pray for them.
Discuss the following questions about this week’s teaching.
- What does this story teach me about God?
- What does this story teach me about myself?
- Who can I tell about this story?
We encourage you to take time to pray as a family.
