Children’s Sunday Sermon
July 1, 2018
Good morning boys and girls! Today we read in our Bibles about Jesus curing a woman who has been sick for a long time. He says to the woman, “Your faith has made you healthy.”

I heard a story about a little boy in Sunday School who was asked what faith is. He said, “Faith is believing something that you know isn’t true.” That may be a funny answer boys and girls but it is certainly not true. Faith is believing in something that you know is true. You may not be able to see it, or touch it or hear it, but you know it is there. That’s the way our faith in God is. We can’t see Him with our eyes and we can’t hear Him with our ears but we know by faith that He is always right there by our side.

In today’s Lesson, the woman who is ill had seen her doctor over many years but she wasn’t getting any better. In fact, she was getting worse. This woman had heard about Jesus so she went to see Him. And when she did, she went over to Him and touched His coat. And as soon as she did this she knew that she felt better and that she had been cured. Then Jesus said to her, “My daughter, your faith has cured you, go in peace and be well.”

You see boys and girls this woman who couldn’t be cured by her doctor had faith in Jesus. She had faith that Jesus could do what no earthly doctor could do, and she was able to go away cured and in peace. It’s the same for us boys and girls. When we have faith in Jesus, the Greatest Teacher and healer that ever was, we can go away with peace in our hearts knowing He is always ready to help us. Now let me ask you boys and girls. What is Faith? Is it believing in something that you know isn’t true? No! Our Faith is our belief and our trust in God!

Good morning boys and girls! We have read in our Bibles many times about the miracles that Jesus performed. Did you know that one day Jesus walked on water? Just imagine that! The Bible tells us that some of Jesus’ followers were in a boat on a lake when they saw Him walking toward their boat. A boy heard this story in his Sunday School class and the teacher asked him what this teaches us. The boy answered,”It teaches us that Jesus couldn’t swim!”

Well boys and girls that is a funny answer but we know that Jesus could do a lot more than just swim. He made miracles, and walking on water was one of them! The miracles that Jesus performed were all signs to help us to believe in Him and to have faith that He will reward us with eternal life with God in Heaven. We also read about another miracle that Jesus performed at a wedding feast. When they ran out of wine Jesus turned water into wine for the people to drink. Jesus also performed miracles of curing sick people, and He even raised a man named Lazarus from the dead. These were all signs for the people to believe that Jesus was the Son of God, sent down to do His work here on earth.

Boys and girls, let’s now think about the greatest miracle ever. What do you suppose that would be? Yes, the flowers, and the mountains and the oceans are all good examples of God’s miracles. But the one miracle of life that I am thinking of is the miracle of YOU! In all of the cities and countries — in all of the world, in all of the universe there is no one else exactly like you! That really is a miracle boys and girls. And each one of you is so special to God, each one of you is so loved by God that He has created a place for you in Heaven! And that is the wonderful miracle of God’s Love.

Good morning boys and girls! We read in our Bibles today about the Apostles — the twelve men that Jesus chose to follow Him and to spread His message after His death. We have read about some of the Apostles including Matthew and John. It was their job to help spread the Good News of Jesus’ teaching across the land.

You know what, boys and girls? All of us loyal followers have our own job to do. Like the Apostles, Jesus is asking us to go out and do the good works that are expected of us. God expects you — every one of you girls and boys to do His work here on earth. And you already know what some of those works are: being kind to your friends, helping others, listening with your hearts, obeying your parents and teachers, and most of all — to show your brothers and sisters, mother and father, teachers, friends and neighbors how much you care about them as members of your Christian family.

That’s what being a loyal follower means. Now this week, as you go to school and spend time with your family and friends, remember what an important job you have been given! It’s the most important job of all!

Good morning boys and girls! I heard a joke about a teacher who asked her students, “What’s big and yellow and comes in the morning to brighten a mother’s day?” A little boy raised his hand and said, “I know, I know! The school bus!”

Well maybe that’s how your mother feels some days boys and girls. And I’m sure the school bus brightens your day as you travel on your way to greet your teachers each morning! Jesus has been called the Greatest Teacher that ever was. We have learned in the Bible that Jesus did many things in His life. He went fishing with the Apostles, He prepared dinner for crowds of hungry people, He read the Scriptures at services, He visited the sick, attended weddings, spent time with little children. But wherever He went, whatever He did, He always turned it into a lesson for life. And through the Gospel Lessons, Jesus continues to teach us to this day. Let’s remember what some of these lessons are:

To help each other;
To give something to those who need us;
To take care of those who are weaker than us;
To be patient with everyone;
To forgive others who have been mean to us;
To do what is good for others.

And we do these things because that is what God expects us to do. We know this through the teachings of Jesus — the Greatest Teacher of all time!

Good morning boys and girls. Have you ever heard someone say, “I’ve done my good deed for the day?” That kind of makes their “good deed” sound like it’s a burden — like something they have to get out of the way, doesn’t it? Sometimes people even get awards for doing their good deeds, like in the Boy Scouts, when they do things to earn merit badges.

Well boys and girls, good deeds are a kind of burden. It is the obligation of each loyal follower of Jesus Christ to be good to one another. It is required of every member of our Christian family to treat each other as we would like to be treated. And we do this not to earn merit badges, but rather to earn our permanent place in the Kingdom of God, both here on earth and in heaven.

Boys and girls, throughout history there have been countless examples of men and women who have dedicated their entire lives to doing good works. You may have heard the names of some of these people like Gandhi, or Martin Luther King or Mother Teresa. These are people who you will be learning more about in school, but they are important examples of those who have done good works here on earth.

And of course you already know the greatest example ever of Someone who has done good works here on earth. Someone whose entire life was dedicated to helping others. That’s right! Jesus is the best example of all! What were some of the good works that Jesus did? He . . .

. . . gave food to the hungry;
. . . gave clothing to the poor;
. . . healed those who were sick;
. . . gave comfort to the lonely.

Those are just a few of the good things that Jesus did here on earth. Boys and girls, we must always be thinking about our responsibilities as members of the Christian community. . .

. . . to be kind to our family and friends and neighbors;
. . . to listen to others with our heart;
. . . to spend time with those who are lonely and need us;
. . . to share with those who are less fortunate.

Boys and girls, these are just a few of the things on our list of good deeds, not just for today, but everyday!
