Day Four: Foundation of Promise

July 23

Bible Story

Jesus Made a Promise (Mathew 28:1-10,16-20)

Today’s Point

Jesus will always love me.

Memory Verse

Philippians 1:6 (NIrV) God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.

Today’s Biblical content ties together two passages that are often told as separate stories. However, as you read the twenty-eighth chapter of Matthew in context, you will see the connection. Matthew’s Gospel contains numerous firsthand accounts of the ministry of Jesus. Verses 1 through 10 describe the early Sunday morning events of the resurrection. At this point in history, women were held in very low esteem. In fact, the testimony of a woman was not considered valid at that time. Therefore, Matthew was taking a bold step by including the women’s account of what happened. It points out that, regardless of public opinion, Matthew chose to report actual events. The angel’s declaration to the women pointed out the promise Jesus had already fulfilled—“He has risen, just as He said.” Jesus is alive. Jesus had repeatedly told His followers what would happen to Him.

When the disciples saw Jesus, they worshipped Him, even though some still had doubts. Our struggle to believe never diminishes Jesus’ authority and power. Jesus said He would die, be buried, and arise on the third day—and He did. Jesus told His disciples He would meet them in Galilee—and He did. Jesus promises to be with us—and He is. Nothing is too small or too great that Jesus cannot keep His promises. Jesus proved His love by taking our punishment on the cross and He promises to never leave us.

The Gospel Message

Everything we’re studying this week comes down to one central message – that Jesus loves you and paid the ultimate sacrifice to be your forever friend. In this video, David explains what it means to know Jesus and follow him. This video is a great tool to begin the gospel conversation with your own kids at home.
