The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, May 12. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family. 

Jesus Forgives Sin 

Read: Matthew 9:2-8 

Ask your child: 

  • How did Jesus’ power to heal prove His authority to forgive? Only God has the authority to forgive sins. When Jesus healed the paralytic, he performed a miracle, which proved that He is God. 
  • Why did the people glorify God after seeing Jesus’ miracles? They were amazed that Jesus had the authority to both heal and forgive. 

Emphasize this principle: Jesus is God. Therefore, we should trust Him to forgive our sins.  


  • Believe that Jesus has the authority to forgive sin. 
  • Embrace Jesus as Lord. 
  • Praise God for providing salvation to Christ’s followers. 

Sing: “Lord, I Life Your Name on High” 

Prepare for next week: Matthew 14:13-21 

Memorize for May 5-May 26: But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.” Isaiah 59:2** Preschool verse in bold
