Bible Time For Kids

August

August 2 | Healing the Nobleman’s Son

In the lesson this week, we learned about the time when Jesus healed the Nobleman’s son (John 4:46-54). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. The theme for this week is Jesus believed is salvation received! The Nobleman had faith in Jesus. He trusted in Him to take care of his son and Jesus healed him. We, too, can trust in Jesus for everything—for our salvation, healing, and help in time of need. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

August 9 | Rejection at Nazareth

In the lesson this week, we learned about the time when Jesus was rejected in Nazareth (Mark 6:1-6). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. Nazareth was Jesus’ hometown, the town where He grew up. Many people there refused to believe in Him. Unfortunately, it seemed that people were too familiar with Him to see that He was the Son of God. Sadly, the Bible says that He couldn’t do very many “mighty works” because of their unbelief. There may be times we are rejected because of our stand for Jesus. We need to be reminded to trust God through those times. He loves us and will help us. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

August 16 | The House Built on the Rock 

In the lesson this week, we learned about The House Built on the Rock (Matthew 7:24-29). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. We found out that the “wise man” built his house on the rock so that when the storms came, his house would not be destroyed. But, the “foolish man” built his house on the sand. When the storms came, his house was completely destroyed!! We must build our lives on the right foundation—Jesus and His Word. When our lives are built on Jesus, the solid rock, we will remain strong no matter what storms come into our lives. What a blessing it is to be able to rest in Him! We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word
together.

August 23 | The Pool at Bethesda

In the lesson this week, we learned about The Pool at Bethesda (John 5:1-15). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. The theme was “Jesus brings healing & hope to a dying world.” It’s exciting to know that God has a lot of grace and mercy on us. Not only can He heal our diseases but he provides us eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ. Great News!!! As we consider the lame man at the pool in our devotions this week, we will see that in many ways we are like him. We have a desperate need for hope and healing because of the grievous disease of sin.How thankful we are that Jesus came to bring such hope. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

August 30 | The Healing of the Centurion’s Servant

In the lesson this week, we learned about the time that Jesus healed the Centurion’s servant (Luke 7:1-10). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. What an exciting story! The Centurion had such faith in Jesus that he knew that Jesus need only give the command and his son would be made well. Jesus was amazed at his great faith. We learned that Jesus has absolute authority over everything. If Jesus commands something to be, then it will happen. This week, we will look at some stories about trusting in Jesus. All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. What a blessing it is to know that we do not need to be afraid! We, too, can trust in the absolute authority of the One who loves us. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

 

September

September 6 | The Son of the Widow of Nain 

In the lesson this week, we learned about The Widow from Nain. (Luke 7:11-17). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. Jesus had compassion on the widow of Nain and raised her son from the dead. Isn’t it exciting to know that the One who we put our trust in has power over death? We who believe in Jesus will have eternal life because when He rose from the dead, He forever conquered death! In devotions this week, we will look at this story from different angles. It will help us to understand a little bit more about who Jesus is and how much He cares for us, how He has conquered death, and how we need to be compassionate just like He is! We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

September 13 | Anointing Jesus’ Feet

In the lesson this week, we learned about a time when a certain woman anointed Jesus’ feet (Luke 7:36-50). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. A Pharisee invited Jesus to dinner and while He was there a woman came and washed His feet with her tears and then anointed His feet with fragrant oil. The Bible doesn’t say a lot about her except that she was a sinner and wanted to receive forgiveness. The Pharisee, unlike the woman who anointed Jesus with fragrant oil, gave Jesus no special honor. In fact, he was judging Jesus in his heart because Jesus was talking to this sinful woman. Jesus taught us a valuable lesson about His forgiveness and our response to Him. We don’t deserve salvation; it is a gift from God. Jesus is worthy to receive all of our worship and respect. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

September 20 | Parable of the Sower

In the lesson this week, we learned about the parable of the Sower (Luke 8:4-18). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. We need to prepare our hearts to receive God’s Word. The condition of our heart is a very important part of receiving the truth of God’s Word and growing in Jesus. We learned that the seed which represents God’s Word lands on the soil of our heart. The seed that lands on hard soil is snatched up by the devil before it can penetrate the heart and take root. The heart of shallow soil responds initially then continues on it’s same old path. The heart with crowded soil has no room for God’s Word, even though it knows God! But, the good soil represents the hearts of those who hear and receive and bring forth fruit. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.

September 27 | Jesus Calms a Storm

In the lesson this week, we learned about the time when Jesus calmed a storm (Matthew 8:23-27). We encourage you to review these scriptures with your child. It was a frightening time for the disciples. Though they were experienced fisherman, the storm was huge. They feared their boat would be destroyed and, perhaps, their own lives, as well. They had forgotten that Jesus was there with them, all of the time. The disciples learned a valuable lesson about trusting in Jesus. When we have troubles, we should never be afraid, for Jesus is with us! We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study God’s Word together.
