June 6 & 9 | Jesus Calmed a Storm

READ the Scripture: Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41; and Luke 8:22-25

TALK about the Scripture: A phobia is a persistent and excessive fear. The most common phobias are the fear of heights, the fear of enclosed spaces, and—of course—the fear of snakes! Even if these aren’t things you’re afraid of, something else probably has—at one point or another—caused you to be afraid.

When the winds gusted and the waves crashed against the boat, the disciples were very afraid. The storm seemed so big. The situation appeared to be so dangerous that the men thought they were going to die. In their desperation, they cried out to Jesus for help, and Jesus, just with the command of His voice, calmed the wind and waves.

When the disciples saw Jesus’ power, they were amazed. They had heard the wisdom in His teaching; they had seen the compassion He had for other people; but in this scene, the disciples saw the full glory and power of Jesus as the Son of God.

Because Jesus is the Son of God, we can cry out to Him for help when we are afraid or overwhelmed. He is strong enough to save us, and He is faithful to help us according to His will for us. He demonstrated His faithfulness and power most clearly when He came to die on the cross and rescue all who believe in Him.

Christ Connection: Jesus’ disciples knew Jesus was a good man and a good teacher. When Jesus calmed the wind and the waves, He showed His disciples that He is also God. God rules the sea and stills its waves.

June 13 & 16 | Jesus Healed and Forgave

READ the Scripture: Matthew 9:1-8; Mark 2:1-12; and Luke 5:17-26

TALK about the Scripture: For $2,000, the Esperance Heli Tours company in the Western Australia islands will give you a helicopter tour over Lake Hillier. Despite the cost, the tours are exceedingly popular because Lake Hillier is no ordinary lake. A mixture of colorful bacteria and algae in the water makes this lake a bright bubble-gum pink! It is truly a sight that most people haven’t seen before.

A well-recognized miracle in the Bible involves four friends who lowered a man who was paralyzed through a roof to get him to Jesus. Jesus saw the friends’ faith and told the man that his sins were forgiven. When the Pharisees questioned Jesus’ authority to make such a statement, Jesus showed His power and authority by telling the paralyzed man to get up and walk, and the man took up his mat and walked!

The crowds who saw this miracle were amazed because they had never seen anything like this before. John 1:18 says “No one has ever seen God. The one and only Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’s side—he has revealed him.” When Jesus showed His power and authority to heal and forgive, He was showing that He is God. Though we can’t see God, we can see His power and His love demonstrated through Jesus.

Christ Connection: The man who was paralyzed needed to be healed. Jesus did something even greater; Jesus forgave his sins, and then He healed the man. Because Jesus is God, He has the power and authority to heal and forgive. Jesus forgives everyone who trusts in Him.

June 20 & 23 | Jesus Healed Sickness

READ the Scripture: Matthew 9:18-31; Mark 5:21-43; and Luke 8:40-56

TALK about the Scripture: Interstate 405 in Orange County, California, is the most heavily trafficked road in the United States. On an average day, the road is traveled by up to 374,000 cars! The morning and afternoon traffic has been known to move at a snail’s pace of 4 to 5 miles per hour. That’s a lot of traffic, and a lot of frustrated people who just want to get where they’re going!

Traffic is a nuisance. It always seems to pop up when you’re in a hurry and have no time to spare. No one likes to be stuck in traffic or hindered when they are on a mission to get things done, but we see a different approach from Jesus in the Gospels. Jesus was always on an important mission, yet He always took time to care for people in need.

Even when Jesus was on His way to an emergency at the house of Jairus, Jesus stopped and talked to a woman who touched Him. She had faith that just touching Jesus could heal her sickness. Jesus stopped to acknowledge her faith in Him. It wasn’t an inconvenience for Jesus at all because this was the mission He came to fulfill. When He heard that Jairus’ daughter had died, Jesus went to the house and raised her back to life!

Jesus was never too busy or moving too fast to give time to the people who needed Him most. Whatever need they had, Jesus had the power to help. Jesus saw our greatest need was to be rescued from our sins, and He gave His own life for us. Like the woman who reached out to Jesus for healing, anyone who believes in Him will be saved from their sins.

Christ Connection: By healing the woman and raising the little girl from the dead, Jesus showed His power as the Messiah. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to save people from sin and death. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sins and changes us to be more like His Son.

June 27 & 30 | Jesus Fed Many People

READ the Scripture: Matthew 15:32-38 and Mark 8:1-10

TALK about the Scripture: What’s the biggest cheeseburger you’ve ever seen? If you visit Mallie’s Sports Grill in Michigan, be sure to check out their 134-pound cheeseburger. It comes with beef patties, bacon, cheese, and pickles—all stuffed between a 50-pound bun! That burger might be enough to feed most of the families in your church!

The miracle of Jesus feeding a huge crowd of people is a great display of His power. He fed thousands of people with just seven loaves and a few fish—and they had plenty of food leftover! But this miracle was also a great display of Jesus’ love.

Jesus saw the people’s physical need of hunger. He saw how it might keep them from hearing His teaching and believing in Him as the Messiah. So, Jesus provided for their needs. On the cross, Jesus provided for our greatest need. Sin keeps us from enjoying a relationship with God, so Jesus willingly sacrificed His own life to save all who believe in Him. This is the greatest demonstration of His love.

Christ Connection: By feeding the crowd, Jesus provided for the physical needs of the people. Later, Jesus called Himself the bread of life. (John 6:35) Only Jesus can satisfy our souls forever by providing forgiveness, peace with God, and eternal life.
