We started out the night talking about home remedies for common problems:
stomach ache: charcoal
ear ache: onion
toothache: ginger and cayenne paste
We discussed how we didn’t like those remedies… then bridged into the fact that Jesus is considered a remedy.
We then watched this youtube video called The Cure and discussed it:
Finally we talked about the meat of the lesson – Jesus – God the Son. The Bible reveals that Jesus was both fully God and fully human. He lived a perfect sinless life. He performed incredible miracles – multiplying food, raising the dead, healing the sick. And the greatest demonstration was his victory over death – his resurrection from the dead.
Jesus also experienced human emotions and pain. He cried when Lazarus died. He felt compassion when he saw the crowds of hurting people. And when Jesus was crucified, he bled and suffered excruciating pain.
This means that as God the Son, Jesus is powerful enough to save us completely. As someone who was fully human, Jesus understands and sympathizes with us completely. AMEN!!
To close out our lesson we made of list of people we wanted to share our remedy – Jesus – with.. then we prayed for them and challenged ourselves to pray for them throughout the summer.
Because God’s children are human beings-made of flesh and blood – the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Hebrews 2:14
