Elementary, January 17: Jesus and the Blind Man

Hi Journey Kids parents!

When you’ve been blind since birth, there’s not a lot of hope of ever being able to see. That is, of course, unless you happen to encounter Jesus. In our story this week, that’s exactly what happened. Jesus miraculously healed a man born blind. Now, you’d think this would turn the Pharisees – who were skeptical of Jesus – into believers! But no such luck. They questioned the man who’d been healed over and over again until he finally said, “I don’t know how He did it! But I know this. I was blind, but now I can see.”

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Jesus and the Blind Man

Big Idea: Jesus can open our eyes to see that He is the Son of God.

Memory Verse: “Open my eyes so that I can see the wonderful truths in your law.” Psalm 119:18 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

Jesus still gives sight to the blind. We are stumbling around in spiritual darkness without Him. But He longs to open our eyes and let in the light of His grace. Let’s ask Him to open our eyes to His incredible love.
