Day 5: The Real India

Family Devotions

A Light in the Darkness

Today's memory verse: "I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness." (John 12:46)

If you dress like a real Indian and eat like a real Indian, does that make you an Indian?

Can you imagine going to live in a country that is completely strange and becoming a citizen of that country? What would you have to give up?

Jesus came into this world to live among us. Can you imagine how different and difficult that was?

Read Isaiah 53:1-5 and make a list of words that describe the experience and the suffering of the One who would come into the world.

Christ became one of us for a reason. Do you know what that reason is? What does it mean to be the light of the world?

  • How does that change you?
  • How will it change India?

Jesus came to earth not so that He would be more and more like us, but so that we would be more and more like Him! Take a few minutes as a family to praise God for the ways He is teaching you to be more like Him.
