Today’s lesson…        Acts 3:1—4:31 Today, your child learned about the first church and many being saved and baptized as a result of the message of Jesus’ death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins. One day, Peter and John saw a lame man sitting outside the temple. He had been lame since birth, and people had seen him for years. That day, God performed a miracle and allowed Peter to heal the man! He walked for the first time in his life! Obviously, the city was amazed at this, giving Peter the perfect opportunity to boldly share the gospel of Jesus—He told … [Read more...]

Today’s lesson…        John 11:1-45 Lazarus, Mary and Martha were siblings and Jesus loved them all. One day, Jesus and His disciples got word that Lazarus was sick. Now remember that they didn’t have phones, email, the post office, or even the Pony Express. That means someone had to travel on foot to get the message to Jesus. This was serious. But Jesus waited, and the reason He waited was to glorify God and Himself (the same). In fact, He told the disciples that Lazarus had already died but He was about to raise him from the dead. When Jesus arrived, He found great … [Read more...]

Today’s lesson…        John 10 & 11 One day, a lawyer asked Jesus what he needed to do to obtain eternal life. Jesus knew that this man wasn’t really interested in being saved or following Jesus. He was merely trying to make himself look good to those watching. Jesus reminded him of what he already knew. The lawyer, being lawyerly, continued to probe, wanting to know exactly who his neighbor was. Jesus answered with the story of the Good Samaritan. Jews were prejudiced against Samaritans, so this man was surprised to hear of a Samaritan in a Godly light. This is the … [Read more...]

Today’s lesson…        John 10 Jesus showed us an illustration in our lesson today. You’ve heard the Bible refer to sheep repeatedly, and in John 10, He explains this illustration. In Bible times, most people had a flock of sheep, so this was a familiar topic. Every night, the shepherd would bring his sheep into what was often high walls built of stones. He would count each one as they entered, then lay across the doorway to protect them from thieves or wild animals. The sheep knew their shepherd. They trusted him and followed him. If someone else tried to lead them, they … [Read more...]

Today’s lesson…        John 9 Our story today is about a blind man. He had been blind since birth, so life was limited for him. He would spend his days sitting on the road, hoping people would have pity on him and give him money so he could buy his necessities. One day, Jesus and His disciples saw the man, and the disciples asked if his blindness was due to sin. In John 9:3, Jesus’ answer was, basically, No, it was not because of his sin. He was blind so that “the works of God might be displayed in him.” I get so excited when I read Scripture like this and think about … [Read more...]
