SIGNS of GRACE - Mini-clips on FORMED to watch in conjunction with the Workbook
Watch these short Bible Story videos to help reinforce Jesus' message of LOVE, COMPASSION & MERCY.
The Story of Zacchaeus – Luke 19:1- 10
This story illustrates how Jesus’ message of Love & Mercy and His salvation was intended for everyone—even an outcast.
The Parable of the Lost Sheep – Luke 15:17
In this parable, Jesus compares God to a shepherd and a sinner to the sheep. Just as the shepherd rejoices on finding his lost sheep, so God rejoices whenever we turn to him for forgiveness after wandering from him through our sin.
The Prodigal Son – Luke 15:11-32
Just as the father celebrates the homecoming of his lost son, God also rejoices when we confess our sins and our return to him.
The Unforgiving Servant – Matt. 18:21-35
In this parable, Jesus tells us to keep on forgiving and to have mercy on others. He forgives us all the time for small and big things so why wouldn’t we forgive others just the same. It’s not always easy but it’s what God wants us to do!
Jesus Heals the Paralytic – Mark 2:1-12
Jesus knew what this man needed most because He knew what was in his heart. Jesus knew that being paralyzed was difficult but it was even worse not to be forgiven.
Please watch this video with your child
This is a great video for kids, teens & adults! Very simple but accurate, it walks you through the Sacrament of Confession that will stick with you…
