Bible Story: Mary and Martha | Luke 10:38-42
Main Point: Jesus wants to spend time with me.
Memory Verse: “How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:18, NIV
Jesus’ love for us is SO BIG! Big, big, big! Jesus has many ways of showing us how much He loves us. Jesus shows His love for us by simply wanting to spend time with us. Jesus wants us to come to Him – anytime, anywhere – just come. Jesus shows He loves us by helping us. And, Jesus loves us no matter what.
In this week’s lesson, Jesus visits Mary and Martha because He wanted to spend time with them.
Just like Mary spent time with Jesus, Jesus wants us to spend time with Him, too. There are lots of ways we can spend time with Jesus every day. He loves spending time with each of us because His love for us is so big!
- At BathTime add some bubbles to the bath and tell your child to pop them. Say, “Jesus loves me,” each time a bubble is popped!
- At PlayTime take your child to visit a friend. Talk about how we like spending time with friends, like Jesus spent time with His friends Mary and Martha.
- This month, wake your child to, “Good morning! Jesus loves you SO big!” Spread your arms out wide when you say SO then give your child a hug.
