Turning to Jesus: Community Kids

Over the month of June in Community Kids, we will be learning what the Bible has to teach us about repentance. When it comes to repentance, we understand that it requires both an internal and external turning from sin and movement toward God. Repentance is something that takes place inside someone’s heart and mind while also bringing visible evidence of sorrow about sin and the desire to change.

As we learn about repentance through these Old Testament passages, we will see how these stories continue to point us to Jesus. Even though we are sinners, God loves us and wants to change our hearts. He sent His Son, Jesus, to rescue sinners and take our punishment. When we turn away from our sin and towards Jesus, He will save us and change us! What begins in the heart will certainly impact the life of the believer. When this happens, it becomes visible that change has occurred.



TIMELINE:

Chronological retelling of God's big story from Genesis to Revelation


As God's people continued to rebel, He continued to pursue them. God warned the people through prophets who pleaded with them to turn from idolatry and turn back to God. God was ready to accept their repentance. But should they continue to sin, God was ready to judge their rebellion. (2 Kings 12; 2 Chronicles 24; Isaiah 22, 48; Zephaniah)
