Day 15 - The Ministry of Jesus

Jesus is preaching to the people, but do you see something strange in the painting?

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness among the people. — Matthew 4:23 (NIV) 

      Jesus did many things to show people He was God.  He was everything all the Old Testament prophecies said Messiah would be.  He preached that He had brought hope for everyone to be with God again, like Adam and Eve were before the fall of man.  He taught that He was the only Way to heaven, the real Truth, and the giver of Life.  He did many miracles, healed the sick, and even brought some people back from death.  He led people to follow Him and taught them how to live a life that pleases God.  He wants us to walk the way He walked, do what He did, and live like He lived.  He wants us to be like Him in our daily lives, and then follow His example and tell others the good news about Him.  His “Great Commission” is to go into all the world, baptize them and teach them to obey everything He commanded.   We should always follow His example and teach His good news.

Today's Prayer

     Lord, thank You for teaching us to live like You and tell people about You.  Please help me watch for ways I can talk about my faith with everyone I meet, and use me to help them know You better.  Use me in a new and wonderful way this week.

Today's Activity:

     Help the children list as many miracles of Jesus as they can think of.  Have them draw something that reminds them of the miracle they like best and tell why.

See the little boy?  He’s dressed like today’s children to show that Jesus came to save all people of all time.
