As Lent approaches we are going to be reading through the life and ministry of Jesus. There will be plenty of new stories for us to explore. However, a lot of the stories we will actually just be reviewing. If you are following along in our Lent Reading Plan and looking for some activities to pair with the readings, here are a collection of devotions we have already done and will be reviewing during the 40 days of Lent.
The 12 Disciples
In the story of The 12 Disciples, Jesus chose his followers, who he later calls his friends. Many of them were fisherman. So we played many fishing-related games, as well as practiced counting to 12.
The Sermon on the Mount
During The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told us not to worry. God cares for the flowers of the field, and the birds of the air. He cares for us, his children, even more.
The Centurian’s Faith
In The Centurian’s Faith we learned that Jesus does not even have to be in the room to hear our prayers and heal. We can pray to him anywhere, and know he is listening.
The story Jairus’ Daughter is actually 2 healings in one. Jesus showed his love to a woman with a bleeding disorder, and also to a little girl who had died. God can heal any disease.
Jesus Healed the Paralyzed Man
Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man is a story where we learn that Jesus not only has the power to heal our bodies, but to heal our souls from sin. He is the great physician.
Jesus Feeds the 5,000
Jesus fed 5,000 people with just 5 Loaves of Bread and 2 Fish. He is the bread of life, and gives us everything we could need, without having to work for it.
The Ten Lepers is a story of thankfulness. Jesus healed 10 men, and only 1 came back to say thank you. In this devotion, we worked our fine-motor skills, and practiced counting to 10.
Jesus Heals the Blind Man
Jesus Healed the Blind Man with some mus. That seems so silly, but God’s ways are often different than what we expect.
Mary and Martha
Mary and Martha: these two sisters could not be more different, and had us learning all about opposites.
The Parables of Jesus
The Parables of Jesus were scattered all throughout the Gospels. Here you will find a collection of the parables we have played through.
Lazarus was raised from the dead, showing Jesus’ power over death. In this story, we see a foreshadowing of Jesus’ own resurrection, and the hope we have of eternal life.
The Resurrection or Easter is the story of new life for all. Here are a collection of our Easter activities from last year.
