Family Devotions, 1st - 4th Grade - God "signed" his agreement; we can believe it.

Have everyone write his signature on a separate sheet of paper. Then have family members try to copy each other’s signatures on the same sheet of paper. Signatures are hard to copy. That’s why they are used to sign legal papers or agreements. Parents, tell about some of the legal agreements you have signed. This week’s lesson explained how God “signed” his agreement with Abram.

Read the account of God making a covenant with Abram in Genesis 15.

Colossians 1:20: “God was also pleased to bring everything on earth and in heaven back to himself through Christ. He did this by making peace through Christ’s blood sacrificed on the cross.”


  • Can you give an example of someone who gave a promise and did not keep it?
  • Abram started to doubt God would give him children. What did God promise in Genesis 15:5? (He told Abram his descendants would be as many as the stars.)
  • What else did God promise Abram in verse seven? (He would give Abram the land.)
  • Why did God command Abram to bring animals to him, cut them in half, lay the halves opposite of each other, and then pass between the animal pieces as a smoking oven and a flaming torch? (This was the way people back then made covenants. God wanted Abram to know for certain that he would keep his promises.)
  • What is God’s promise to us? (God gives us many promises so accept many answers. However, be sure the promise of eternal life is mentioned.)
  • Read Colossians 1:20. This time God did not sign his promise with the blood of animals, but he signed his promise to us with the blood of Jesus. If this is how he signed his love for us, God is saying just what he said to Abram, “I am your God. You will be my people.” This is a reminder that God signed his agreement, and we can believe it! If God has signed his agreement, do you believe it?

Thank God for what he was done to sign his agreement with us through Jesus.

Family Time Option
One day this week, try…
God signed his promise to us in the cross. Because of this promise of the cross, our sins will be forgiven and we can live forever. Walk around the house and see how many crosses each person can locate. You can even have a contest gathering your lists. Close with prayer thanking God for the promise of the cross.
