The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, July 28. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
Jesus Forgives Sin
Passage: Matthew 9:1–8
Principle: Forgiveness of sin comes only through Jesus
Praise: “Lord, I Lift Your Name on High”
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- How did Jesus’ power to heal prove His authority to forgive?
- Why did the people glorify God after seeing Jesus’ miracles?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By praising Jesus for His authority to forgive sin.
- By thanking God for not remembering sins that He has forgiven.
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of Matthew 9:1–8.
Next Week: Matthew 9:18–26
Memory Verse: Matthew 9:6
“But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins’ —then He said to the paralytic, ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”
