Father: Today, for Bible study, we’re going to meditate on what Jesus means to us.
Father: To meditate on Jesus means to get very quiet and focus your thoughts on Jesus.
Father: I brought pictures of Jesus that we can look at. Or if you want, you can close your eyes and picture Jesus in your mind.
Father: It might help you to picture a particular Bible story about Jesus.
Narration: A few minutes later.
Boy 1: That was exciting! I felt like I was there watching Jesus heal the blind man.
Boy 2: I imagined I was one of the disciples walking with Jesus on the road to Emmaus after His resurrection.
Girl 2: I thought about what it must have been like for Jairus’ daughter to know Jesus healed her.
Girl 1: I was reminded of how Jesus taught His disciples to forgive, just like He forgave others when He was on the cross.
Father: Jesus uses these times to draw us closer to Him and to fill us with His love, peace, and joy.
Boy 1: I want to reread the story of Jesus healing the blind man.
Boy 2: And I’ll read the story about Jesus appearing on the road to Emmaus.
Girl 1: Let’s do this again sometime!
Girl 2: I feel so happy knowing how Jesus can help me forgive others.
Narration: Bible study with Grandfather.
Grandfather: What is one of your favorite parts of the Easter story?
Boy 1: After His resurrection, when Jesus suddenly appeared in the room to His disciples! Girl 2: He didn’t even come in through the door!
Boy 2: The disciples must have been shocked!
Grandfather: Let’s now reflect and meditate on the great love Jesus has for us!
Children: Thank You for Your love, Jesus!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy he gave us a new life. He gave us a living hope because Jesus Christ rose from death” (1 Peter 1:3 ICB).
