2) Are You Reconciled?

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ... ( 2 Corinthians 5:17-18)

The Bible Pop Quiz is a great way to encourage older children to think about their need to follow God's directions in life. 

You can download the quiz from the Anytime Bible Games page at:
