The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, July 7. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
Jesus Calls the Disciples
Passage: Matthew 4:12–25
Principle: Jesus’ authority over sin, sickness, and Satan demonstrates that He is the Messiah.
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- What did Jesus ask Andrew, Peter, James, and John to do?
- What was Jesus’ message?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By obeying the Lord Jesus, who taught, preached, and healed with authority.
- By praising God for shining the light of Jesus into this dark world.
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of Matthew 4:12–25.
Next Week: Matthew 8:5–13
Memory Verse: Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him (Matthew 4:19–20).
