Raising Rock Stars ~ “Convinced” Romans 8:38-39

Romans 8:38-39

Our night was based upon the song, Convinced {Romans 8:38-39} from Seeds of Courage.  I didn’t get any pictures, but here’s the verse hanging up on our calendar board…  IMG_1150Of course we used the great  printables Valerie made for Totally Tots to learn this verse and what it means.

While teaching the verse one portion at a time to the boys, Krash announced his confusion with the “locked up heart.”  God popped an object lesson in my head to try to make this real for him and it really helped.

I led him out of our schoolroom door {that leads into my husband’s tool area and happened to have the new key to the door right there} and locked the door quickly hiding the key in my pocket. 

Mommy ~ “What are we supposed to do?”

Krash ~ “We need a key.”

M ~ “How do we get a key?”

K ~  “Daddy.”

M ~ “ Yes, we need to ASK for the key.”

I went on to apply this to the symbolic KEY to heaven that comes to us by ASKING Jesus into our hearts.  I told him that when we ask Jesus into our hearts we get the key to heaven and get to live with God forever.  He then referred back to the locked up heart image.  I told him that when we accept Christ into our hearts, God locks us up tight and won’t let the key to heaven get away!  God loves us so much and nothing can separate us from Him.
