Miracles of Jesus

Recently in the kids services we have been doing a series on the miracles of Jesus. Our memory verse for this series has been Mark 10:27, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”

Two weeks ago, we talked about Jesus feeding the 5000 and the kids learned that God can provide all that we need and even more! We looked at Matthew 6:31-32, which says “So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' [for] your heavenly Father knows that you need these things.”

Last week we watched a video of Jesus healing the paralytic and we learned that not only does Jesus forgive us for our sins, he can also heal us physically for “Jesus said to the paralytic “Take heart, my son: your sins are forgiven,” and “Rise, pick up your bed and go home”.” Matthew 9: 2, 6

This Saturday, we are going to learn about when Jesus raised the widow’s son and we will talk about how we should praise God when he does great things in our lives. We will also look at Luke 7:16, which says “They were all filled with awe and praised God. "A great prophet has appeared among us," they said. "God has come to help his people."

And the Saturday after that, we are going to have a celebration that we are calling “Fiesta de Vida” (Party of Life) to celebrate Easter and the death and resurrection of Christ. In Nicaragua, the week leading up to Easter is called “Semana Santa” or Holy Week. All the kids have off from school and everyone heads off to the beach. So our celebration is going to be beach-themed (as most of the kids that attend our services can’t afford to go to the beach) and we are going to celebrate life because of what Christ did for us!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3
