The Old Testament | In The Beginning
God never gives up on you.
Psalm 86:15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
Romans 8:39 “neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Read these three sections of scripture together: Genesis 2:16-17, Genesis 3:1-13, and Genesis 3:21. This section of the Bible is called “The Fall of Humanity”. Ask your student why they think Adam and Eve did what they did, why the serpent did what he did, and why God does what he does in this section. Point out that even though Adam and Eve let God down, He doesn’t give up on them. Instead, He provides for them.
Read Romans 8:34-39 together. Talk together about how your lives might look a little different if you always remembered that nothing “in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God…”
Tell your student about a time in your life when you decided not to give up on someone or something. How did it turn out? What made you stick with it/them?
