Lesson topic: Jesus heals the sick during the evening: 

Sunday School Lesson for Kids - Jesus Heals the Sick - Matthew 4, Mark 5 & 6 - Bible Stories for VBS - YouTube

 

Memory Verse: “Exodus 15:26 I am the Lord who heals you.

 

Objective: This week we continue to learn about Jesus provided miracles of healing, but the greatest healing He gives is the salvation of souls. In this lesson, children will recognize how His earthly ministry demonstrated how much He cared for people. Because we know He cares for us still, we should pass that love along to those around us. This lesson also reminds us that even Jesus took moments to rest and remember His role. We should take time to pray and recall who we are in Christ.

PARENTS! The children will learn the story of Jesus miracles of healing.

Scripture: Mark 1:29-39

Lesson: Mark 1:29-31

And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.    -

We don’t know how long Simon’s mother-in-law had been sick, but we know how long it took her to get better. Jesus didn’t have to give her rounds of antibiotics. He just took her by the hand, and she was better right away! She was healed so immediately that she even started serving them. That’s fast-acting relief, all right. She probably wanted to serve Jesus and His disciples because she was grateful for the healing He provided. We should be thankful and want to serve others, too.

Why do you think Jesus healed Simon’s mother-in-law? 

It might seem obvious…He healed her because He could; to show He had power from God; or maybe because she was a relative of His close friend. But ultimately, He cared. Jesus doesn’t want us to feel sick or sad or hurt. He didn’t just help this lady because He knew her son-in-law. Others were brought to Him, too, and He healed them.  Jesus healed many people who had all kinds of outer and inner ailments. Word spread fast, and Jesus took care of those who needed Him.

Mark 1:32-34

“That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.”

 Jesus cared for the crowds. He had strength and curing power from God, and He used it to do great miracles. He healed many people. But you know what? It probably took a lot of effort and work for Jesus to do all that. He was the son of God, of course, but He was also a human, and He got tired. Sometimes Jesus needed time to Himself, and He withdrew from others to pray. We see that happen here, in fact. Let’s look at the next few verses in this passage:

Mark 1:35-37

“And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.”

Jesus went out to a spot where He could be all by Himself. He probably needed to recover and remember His mission on Earth. Maybe He also thanked God for the miracles that were happening. Of course, Jesus was God, so sometimes it’s confusing to think of Him praying, but He did, demonstrating the importance of prayer. We should always pray, and we might need to take time away to do it. The verses don’t say how long Jesus was away, but it was long enough for His disciples to form a search committee and come hunt Him down…

What do you do when you feel like you are overwhelmed or need time to yourself? Do you have a special spot or routine that helps you get space away from other things?

Remind children that taking time for yourself is a good thing. God wants and invites us to take time for ourselves. God wants to hear from us. Jesus recognized, though, that He was needed in the world. He took time to contemplate His purpose on Earth, and then He responded to His seeking disciples to explain that purpose:

Mark 1:38-39

And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” 39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons. 

Who did Jesus come for? According to these verses, why did He come?

Key Points:

  • Jesus was sent to Earth to heal, preach, teach, love, care, and show how much God loved His people.

  • Most importantly, He came to die so that we might have eternal life. He took care of our hurts inside and out. He has come back to life so that we might live.

  • As we consider His life and work, and consider our hurts and concerns, we take hope in remembering that Jesus promised to be with us always. He heals physical hurts, but most importantly He heals our inner trouble. Jesus cares for us always!

Questions to ask your Children:

  1. Why do you think Jesus healed Simon’s mother-in-law?

  2. Who takes care of you when you are sick or hurt? What kinds of things help you feel better? Have you ever helped take care of someone else who needed help?

  3. What do you do when you feel like you are overwhelmed or need time to yourself? Do you have a special spot or routine that helps you get space away from other things?

Memory Verse: “Exodus 15:26 I am the Lord who heals you.
