Day: Pentecost 10
Lectionary Passage: Matthew 16:13-20
Scripture Focus: Matthew 16:15-17
Good morning! Today’s Bible story is about something really important. In fact, it’s probably one of the most important passages in the whole New Testament because it tells us exactly who Jesus really is. Are you ready to find out?!
Okay, first we learn that Jesus is the Messiah. Can you say that word with me? Messiah. Great job! Jesus is the Messiah means Jesus is the one who comes to save us from all the bad stuff we’ve done. And that’s really good news!
The second thing we learn is that Jesus is the Son of God. Whoa! Jesus is the Son of God. That means Jesus isn’t just a regular guy like you and me. He is special and one of a kind. He is God’s only Son. And God sent Jesus so that Jesus could help you and me.
So whenever someone asks us who is Jesus, we can tell them two things, let’s count on our fingers as we say them together: One, Jesus is the Messiah and Two, Jesus is the Son of God. Awesome job!
Let’s pray: Thank you God for sending your Son to save us. Help us remember to share with others that he is the Messiah. Amen.
