Title: Jesus Brings Us Peace
Hey kids! Today we are going to learn about the peace that Jesus brings to our lives. Have you ever felt worried or scared? Maybe you were afraid of the dark or had a fight with a friend. It’s normal to feel that way sometimes, but we can find peace in Jesus.
In the Bible, there is a story about Jesus calming a storm. Jesus and his disciples were on a boat when a big storm came. The wind was howling, and the waves were crashing into the boat. The disciples were scared, but Jesus was sleeping peacefully. When they woke him up, Jesus stood up and said, “Peace, be still!” And instantly, the storm stopped, and the sea became calm. Jesus showed his power over the storm and his ability to bring peace to any situation.
Just like Jesus calmed the storm in the Bible, he can bring peace to our lives too. When we are worried or scared, we can pray to Jesus and ask him to give us peace. We can also read the Bible and remember that Jesus is always with us, and he will never leave us. This can help us feel calm and peaceful, even when things around us are difficult.
Let’s make a calm down bottle to help us remember that Jesus is with us and can bring peace to any situation.
Materials: a plastic bottle, water, clear glue, glitter, and food coloring
1. Fill the bottle halfway with water.
2. Add a few drops of food coloring and swirl it around.
3. Squeeze in some clear glue and stir it all together.
4. Sprinkle in some glitter.
5. Fill the rest of the bottle with water and seal it tightly.
6. Shake the bottle and watch the glitter swirl around, just like how Jesus brings peace to our hearts.
Remember, Jesus brings us peace in any situation. Whenever we feel worried or scared, we can pray to Jesus and ask him for peace. Let’s hold onto the promise that Jesus is with us and will always bring calm to our hearts.
