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...]

Today’s lesson…        Matthew 6 and Luke 9 Before I summarize today’s lesson, it’s important that you put yourself in the shoes of the disciples. The message of the coming Messiah had been passed from generation to generation to generation. It’s easy for us to be convinced that Jesus was, of course, the Messiah  prophesied, but the disciples and others who crowded around Jesus in Bible times didn’t have that confirmed faith. He said He was the Son of God and the Messiah, but He still looked like them—a mere man. Obviously, Jesus knew this, after all, He’s God, but … [Read more...]

Matthew 14 & John 6 In our lesson today, Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist has been murdered by King Herod. Understandably, Jesus was sad and wanted to spend some time being quiet. He got into a boat and went into the Sea of Galilee with His disciples. (Remember, these men were His best friends.) Well, as with any celebrity, the crowd found this Healer, Preacher, possible Messiah and wanted to hear Him teach. Most would have thought, “Can I just have two minutes to myself?” but the Bible says Jesus had compassion for them. They needed His love and Truth, and He was happy to share it … [Read more...]

Jesus Chooses Disciples A lot of Scripture was covered in today’s lesson. We have Mark’s, Luke’s and Matthew’s account, so there was a lot of bouncing around from verse to verse. After Jesus was baptized, his earthly ministry began. He knew His time on earth was coming to an end, and it was time to prepare a team so His message would continue to spread. The kids were asked what kind of men they would choose for this job. How about you? What gifts and personalities would you look for? Most important, though, is the willingness to obey, follow and serve. These men needed to submit to … [Read more...]
