X Marks the Spot Family Bible Lessons
Finding Treasure Along the Romans Road!
We've taken the key elements of our X Marks The Spot 6-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum and converted them into easy lessons that you can send to all the parents in your church to do at home as a family.
The Romans Road is a way of understanding why we as people need to be saved, and how we can accept Jesus as our Savior. It is called the Romans Road because all of the Scripture references are found in the book of Romans, Paul's letter to the Roman church. In this series, kids will travel down the Romans Road – learning life-giving verses along the way – on a journey from sin and separation from God, to peace and eternal life with God. An X, or rather a cross, marks the spot for the greatest treasure anyone could ever find - eternal life with Jesus.
X Marks the Spot Lessons Overview:
Memory Verse: A new verse every week. See below.
Scripture: Romans 3:23
God is perfect and his ways are perfect. Every one of us have sinned – disobeyed and acted in ways that fell short of God's perfection. “Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God’s glory.”
Objective: Kids will learn that all have sinned and fallen short of God's perfection.
Walking In The Dark
Scripture: Romans 6:23a
If you’ve ever disobeyed your mom and dad and gotten a time out, you know what a consequence is. A consequence is the punishment for doing the wrong thing. The Bible tells us that sin - disobeying God - has a consequence as well. The consequence is to be apart from God forever. Since we have all sinned, we all deserve that same punishment. Romans 6:23a says “When you sin, the pay you get is death.”
Objective: Kids will learn that everyone has sinned and sin comes with a consequence.
A Light Up Ahead
Scripture: Romans 6:23b
We all deserve the consequence for the sin that we have committed. But God loves us and has provided another way, the way of life. Jesus came and took our consequence for us, so we didn’t have to experience it. “When you sin, the pay you get is death. But God gives you the gift of eternal life. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.”
Objective: Kids will learn that God offers us the gift of life.
Scripture: Romans 10:9
Salvation - which means being free from the eternal consequence of sin - comes only from God. Kids will learn that Romans 10:9 tells us how we can all receive salvation: “Say with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord.' Believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved.”
Objective: Kids will learn that to be saved we must put our faith in Jesus.
A Place To Rest
Scripture: Romans 5:1
When we put our faith in Jesus, he makes us right with God and brings us peace. We have peace because we know that even though we make mistakes, God forgives us because Jesus paid our sin price for us. As it says in Romans 5:1: “We have been made right with God because of our faith. Now we have peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Objective: Kids will learn that our faith in Jesus makes us right with God.
Scripture: Romans 8:38-39
When we find Jesus, we find a treasure. One that no one can ever take away for eternity. “I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love. Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us. Not even the highest places or the lowest, or anything else in all creation can separate us. Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.”
Objective: Kids will learn that salvation is a treasure that lasts.
