Song: Master, the Tempest is Raging (Hymn #105)
Opening Prayer: By Invitation
Scripture: Mark 4:39
Visual Aid: Jesus Calms the Sea (Gospel Art Book, pg. 40)
Lesson: One evening, Jesus and His disciples set out across the Sea of Galilee in a boat. Jesus went to sleep while His disciples sailed the ship. He was still sleeping when a great storm blew up. In the wind and the waves and the darkness, the disciples were afraid. They woke Jesus up in a panic. He stood and told the sea, “Peace, be still.” The wind calmed down, and suddenly the storm ended. The disciples, who didn’t yet understand that Jesus was the Son of God, were amazed at this miracle (see Mark4:35– 41).
Sometimes we get “stormy” inside: angry, or frightened, or worried, or discouraged. Just as He did with the Sea of Galilee, Jesus can calm an upset heart or mind if we let Him bring us the peace He promises.
Thought Question: How have you felt peace through the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Challenge: Over the next week, whenever something happens that causes you to feel “stormy” inside, stop, take a deep breath and say a prayer for peace. Share your experiences next week.
Closing Song: Heavenly Father, Now I Pray (Children Songbook, pg. 19)
Closing Prayer: By Invitation
