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 John: Jesus tells of the miracle of the new birth. (John 3:1-16)
One night a religious leader came to Jesus and acknowledged to Jesus that God must be with Him because of the miracles that He was doing. Then Jesus said something miraculous and amazing.
Ask the children…
What was the amazing thing that Jesus told Nicodemus?
“Jesus replied, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.’” (John 3:3)
Could Nicodemus understand what Jesus meant?
“’What do you mean?’ exclaimed Nicodemus. ‘How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?’” (John 3:4)
How did Jesus respond?
“’Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life.’” (John 3:6)
Being born again into God’s heavenly kingdom comes as a result of the Holy Spirit bringing this new life. This is God’s amazing miracle that every believer in Christ has experienced. If you don’t think God has ever done a miracle in your life, then either you need to remember this miracle that happened to you or you need to ask Jesus to come into your life so you can experience this miracle.
