Because we are not meeting together as a congregation, we do not want your children to miss out on their regular teaching time, so every week that we are apart we will post a video of the lesson as well as the activity pages, which you will find below.
Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem when He stopped in a village. He was approached by ten men who had leprosy. The men didn’t get too close because according to Jewish law, their disease meant they were unclean.
The men cried out to Jesus for mercy, and He commanded them to go and show themselves to the priests. As they went, Jesus miraculously healed them. This healing gave the men a new beginning. They would be able to return to their friends and family members. One of the men—a Samaritan among Jews—seeing that he was healed, returned to Jesus. The man gave glory to God. He fell facedown at Jesus’ feet, thanking him (Luke 17:15-16). This humility and gratitude were evidences of faith. The man’s response shows an understanding of God’s mercy and goodness. Jesus declared, “Get up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you”. This man was healed not just physically but spiritually. Jesus healed the ten men who cried out to Him. The one who had faith was saved.
As you talk with your children, emphasize that when we trust in Jesus by faith, He heals us from something greater than a disease; He saves us from our sins. We can give Him thanks and worship Him for making us new.
