Bible Story: The Centurion | Matthew 8:5-13
Main Point: Jesus wants to help 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 helps a centurion when he asks for it.
Jesus loves you and wants to help you, just like He loved and helped the army captain and the servant. There are lots of times we can ask Jesus for help, and He always helps us because His love for us is so big!
- At BathTime, say, “The bath soap is supposed to get you clean if you will help scrub with it! Jesus will help us do what we’re supposed to do, too!”
- At PlayTime play a helping game with your child. How many ways can you help each other? Remind your child Jesus will help us when we ask Him!
