Today in Sunday School, the lesson is “Jesus Heals Many.” Through many miracles, Jesus shows us His power over sin. Ask your children to tell you, “Who did Jesus heal? What were some of the sicknesses the people had?” Talk about sin—yours, theirs, and the world’s—and how Satan holds the world in bondage, causing sickness and death. Assure them that Jesus is the Holy One of God, who defeats Satan and frees us from his hold, granting us eternal life in paradise. Emphasize that Jesus has power over sin and sickness, saving the lost by His death and resurrection.
“Jesus Heals a Man Who Is Paralyzed” is also the lesson for Sunday School today. The miracle of healing the paralytic confirms that Jesus, the Son of Man, has authority on earth to forgive sins, and it confirms what the Son of Man chiefly came to do: deliver us and all believers from sin, death, and the power of the devil. Consider discussing, “In addition to healing the paralyzed man, what else does Jesus tell him? How has Jesus healed us from our sickness of sin?”
