The goal of this week’s lesson is to help the children understand the love of God. Here is how Wayne Grudem defines God’s attribute of love.
God’s love means that God eternally gives of himself to others. This definition understands love as self-giving for the benefit of others. This attribute of God shows that it is part of his nature to give of himself in order to bring about blessing or good for others.
We will first begin by describing the love of God towards Himself, and specifically His Son. The Father loves the Son — perfectly! Then we will explain that God graciously did not keep His love to Himself, but decided to bestow that love upon sinful humanity by sending the Son that He loved to die for their sins, so that they could experience and share in the love of God forever.
