My authentic self is flawed. How can God love me?

I have often wondered how God could possible love me. When it comes to handling my life – I flub up. Often. I’m flawed!

Yet God still loves me.

One of the greatest things we can teach each other is that God loves us no matter what we do. I need constant reminders. And you?

A love note from God

In our adventures with Clive and Ian’s Wonder-Blimp, today’s query was:

Does God Love Me When I Do Bad Things?

Use the questions below to continue the discussion. Start the conversation in the car on the way home from church, or around the family dinner table, or wherever your family is gathered together. Ask these questions even if you missed today’s video showing!

Have some family time discussion…

  • Have everyone share one thing that they noticed that the person on their left, did “right” today. (Allow all replies!)
  • Do we always do the right thing – all the time? What happens when we do something “bad”? (There are usually consequences!)
  • Do you suppose that there is anything that you can do that will make God love you less?
  • How can I be assured that God loves me?
  • God can be pretty hard to understand! We can only say, “Thank You God” for what Jesus did for us – dying for our sins. Jesus’ death and resurrection has brought hope to everyone!
  • Read in the Bible, the story of Peter disowning Jesus (Luke 22:54-62). Did Jesus stop loving Peter? (No!)
  • Sometimes we are like Peter. When we do wrong things, it’s like we turn our backs on Jesus. But through Jesus we have been forgiven and brought into right relationship with God.
  • Buck Denver starts to tell us about commasBonus Question: Why do you suppose we need speed bumps (AKA: commas) in our sentences? What if every time we saw a comma, we were reminded that God loves us?

This summer, we hope you’ll join us on our movie adventure and also, continue the learning at home.
