Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important because it helps them to see how nothing is impossible for God. If God can do miracles in the Bible, He can do them in our children’s lives today. Here is an easy way to do that interactively.
Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of Luke: Jesus heals the masses. (Luke 4:40, 41; Matthew 8:16, 17 Mark 1:32-34)
Just after casting the demon out of a man at the synagogue on the Sabbath and healing Simon’s mother-in-law, guess who else wanted their family members to be healed?
Ask the children…
Who came bringing their sick to be healed?
“As the sun went down that evening, people throughout the village brought sick family members to Jesus.” (Luke 4:40 )
How many of these people were healed?
“No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed every one.” (Luke 4:40)
When Jesus touched someone with the intent of healing them, they were healed. We do not see everyone healed today immediately when we pray for them. Why not? We do not know. We do know that God will heal when people are supposed to be healed. That should not discourage us from praying for healing however. Jesus said that we would do even greater things that He did.
