Key Passage: For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

Adult: To whom could you bring the assurance of Christ’s love this week? Child: Do you remember a time when you felt better because someone acted with love? Reprinted with permission from Heritage of Faith, published by Twenty-Third Publications.
