Simplified Sunday resource to be taught by parents at home during lockdown
Matthew’s story shows us the great power and compassion of a Saviour who transforms lives. Hear what he says. See what he does. The desperate woman clinging to his cloak is called “daughter”. He walks with the grieving father. He holds the little girl’s hand and she lives. He reaches into death and brings life.
We are dead in sin, unable to help ourselves. Our only hope is that Jesus is kind enough and powerful enough to help us. This story should thrill our hearts with the wonderful truth that he is BOTH! This great news should change us and this new life should spill out of us to those around us.
Questions to Ponder
Do I really recognise my desperate and helpless situation before God, apart from Jesus?
How much of a difference does knowing Jesus make in my life, that others can see?
