Lesson Review – 1 John 3 – Loving One Another


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied 1 John 3:11-18. This is lesson 76 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 154 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 76 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

In this is love, not that we have loved God by that he loves us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10) Because of God’s love on display in the gospel, we can freely love others.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Because of what God has done for us in Christ, we are now free to show love to others.

Questions for Discussion

How has God shown us His love?
By sending his Son, Jesus, to live a life of perfect love and obedience to God and to die in our place and for our sin so that we may be made right with God.

Did God send Jesus to save us because we were good and nice people?
No. The Bible says that we were God’s enemy. He sent Jesus to save us, displaying his great love. (Ephesians 2:1-10)

How does God help us to love others?
When we realize what God did for us in sending Jesus, even when we didn’t deserve it, it helps us to love people, even people that might not deserve it.

How can we show God’s love to others?
Accept any answer and use it as a springboard for discussion and, potentially, for action.

Praying together – Take time to pray with your child, asking that God would help you and your child to show others the deep love that you have received in the gospel.
