A Spiritual Journey towards faith in Jesus Christ for Children
Day 5 - Deciding to Follow Jesus
Scripture Reading: Matthew4:12-25
Family Discussion Starters:
Isaiah was a prophet before Jesus was born. He was given many prophesies, regarding Jesus, from God. What do you think he meant when he said, "The people living in darkness have seen a great light."?
(The great light was Jesus who taught the people how to live by God's truth. He lit the way for those who did not understand right from wrong. We can understand how to live a righteous life by following the teaching of Jesus.)
Who were the first two men to follow Jesus?
(Andrew and Simon Peter)
Who were the next two men to follow Jesus?
(John and James)
Do you think it was difficult for these men to leave everything behind to follow Jesus? Would you have left everything to follow Jesus?
How can we follow Jesus today?
