Jesus Shows His Power through Miracles by Jennifer Tolbert
When Jesus came to Earth, he performed miracles to prove that he was the Son of God. In today's story, we are going to discuss all the different powers that Jesus possessed. He had power over sickness and disease, the weather, demons and more. Jesus is bigger and stronger than any struggle you may face!
1. Jesus did miracles to convince us that He is the Son of the almighty God.
2. A miracle is a special act of God's power.
3. Jesus wants us to have faith instead of fear-because he is more powerful than anything we face in this world!
John 20:30, 31––“Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”

Introducing the Story Ideas
Place a rope or wool on the floor to create a circle. Have your children walk around inside the circle but explain they must not touch each other, or they will be out. As the game continues make the circle smaller and smaller. Remind your child how people with leprosy were not allowed to touch or get close to others. (TruewayKids.org)
2. Who Touched Me?
Have a child or adult sit with their back to the others in the room. One child is selected to touch the player on the back and sit back down.
The player must guess who it was that touched them.
Story: God's people have been waiting for the Messiah--or "Anointed One" for a long time. They knew that this person would be powerful. The miracles Jesus performed drew many people to him. They were amazed at what he could do because no other person could. It helped them to believe in Jesus! The disciples wrote down many of the miracles they witnessed so we could also believe in Jesus.
Review: What is a miracle? A miracle is not a magic trick. A miracle is a special act of God's power. -A miracle always had immediate and instant results.
-They were always successful.
