Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Jesus Tells The Fishermen When And Where To Fish

Jesus Teaches Them To Fish

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 tells the fishermen when and where to fish. (Luke 5:1-11; Matthew 4:18-22; Mark 1:16-20; John 1:35-43)

One day Jesus was preaching by the Sea of Galilee.  He got into an empty fishing boat and spoke to a great crowd of people.  After He was done preaching, he told Simon to do something unusual.

Ask the children…

What did Jesus ask Simon to do?

“’Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.’” (Luke 5:4)

What did Simon answer?

“’Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at your word I will let down the net.’” (Luke 5:5)

What miracle did Jesus do? 

“When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking?” (Luke 5:6)

Even the fish of the sea respond to Jesus’ command.  God is so concerned about our well being that there is nothing that he is not involved in in our lives.
