The goal of this week’s lesson is to help the children understand the grace of God. Here is a general definition of God’s grace — “All that God does in undeserved love to benefit human beings in general and His children in particular.” This lesson should begin with the predecessor of God’s grace in Christ, the Mosaic Law. It is possible to say that God’s giving of the Law was a gracious act for a few reasons: 1) It revealed God’s holy standard; 2) It had provision for real, temporary forgiveness for sin in the sacrificial system. However, the Law was unable to give life, despite the real, temporary forgiveness from sin it provided with each sacrifice. Today, believers now celebrate the fullness of grace that came in the Person of the Lord Jesus, whose sacrifice provides permanent forgiveness from sin and who possesses the ability to give life to dead men and women who are deserving only of judgment.
