CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Freedom from Sin
THEME: Jesus has set us free from sin.
SCRIPTURE: Romans 6:1-23
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids! Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about Freedom from Sin. The
theme was “Jesus has set us free from sin.” Romans 6 is an exciting study
for every Christian, but what a blessing to learn its’ truth as children!
Before coming to know Jesus we are under the control of sin and our sin
nature. But in Jesus we are freed from the power of sin.
So now, in Jesus, we can do what He wants us to do. Our motivation is to
live for Him because of His love for us and because He has made us a brand
new person. We don’t live for Him to try to make Him like us; we live for Him
because of what He has already done for us.
The section of scripture that we studied was Romans 6:1-23. The
following five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the theme
for Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you to review
these verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for the
application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool to help
in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may want to add your own ideas to these to make them
more age appropriate.
May the Lord bless you as you study His Word together!
I Can’t Help It!

whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.’”
