Sunday, April 7 - Lazarus Raised


We start the month with friends of Jesus who had lost all hope. John records an incredible moment that we find in John 11:1-45. When Lazarus died, Jesus used the opportunity to point people to God. Jesus was stronger than even death itself and raised Lazarus back to life four days after he had died.

Bottom Line: Whatever happens, remember how powerful God is. God can do amazing things in your life. We pray that kids will understand that when they face something difficult or hard to understand that they’ll find hope that God’s power can help us through whatever we face.

Scripture this week: John 11:45

“Many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary saw what Jesus did. So they believed in him.”

  • Life Application: Hope - Believing that something good can come out of something bad

  • Bottom Line: Whatever happens, remember how powerful God is

  • Memory Verse: “In this world you will have trouble. But be encouraged! I have won the battle over the world..” John 16:33b

Next Steps for Parents & Grandparents: As you say goodbye to your child this morning remind them, “No matter what happens today, remember how powerful God is and that He’s got it!”
