Did you know?
Share these facts to get the conversation started:
Jesus is invincible! Some of the best images that describe His invincibility can be found in the book of Revelation.
John wrote this book in the apocalyptic genre. The word apocalypse means “an unveiling,” and the book of Revelation truly unveils Jesus Christ in all His fullness.
Apocalyptic literature consists of symbolic visions recorded exactly as they were seen by the author and explained through a divine interpreter.
The message of Revelation still speaks to us today, revealing Jesus’ true nature as astounding, terrifying, and beautiful. How incredible to know that one day our invincible Lord will vanquish evil!
Connect as a family
This week, during a meal, ask your children what the word invincible means (all-powerful and incapable of being defeated). Then tell your kids you’re going to read about the only truly invincible One: Jesus. Read Revelation 1v12–18 and 19v11–16. Ask your children what stood out to them. Discuss together how it makes them feel to think of Jesus in this way. Pray together and thank God that nothing and no one can ever defeat Jesus, the invincible One.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
How do these passages of Scripture describe Jesus?
What does the word invincible mean?
How is Jesus invincible?
These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how Jesus is invincible into your everyday life as a family.
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you know in any situation that Jesus is invincible! May your heart be full of joy and hope as you wait for His return. May you faithfully spread the news of His kingdom until He comes again.
