Special Needs Ministry Modified Elementary Curriculum:
Open Bible to John 9. Explain the religious leaders in Jerusalem did not like Jesus. His authority challenged theirs, He had power that they didn’t have, and He spent time with people they didn’t like. Read aloud John 9:24-25.
SAY • Jesus gave sight to a man who was blind. The man had been blind since birth, and Jesus told him to go wash in the pool of Siloam in Jerusalem.
Ask the following questions. Lead the group to discuss:
Why was the man in today’s Bible story born blind? Lead kids to recall Jesus’ answer to the disciples: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned. This came about so that God’s works might be displayed in him.” Emphasize that Jesus was saying that the man’s blindness was not a consequence of their sin. Sometimes our suffering is caused by our own sin, but often suffering is the result of living in a fallen world. (1 John 1:5-6.)
How does knowing Jesus cause us to think differently about suffering? Guide kids to consider how the Lord is at work beyond what is happening immediately around us. Instead of feeling angry or hopeless, we can live with the hope that God is in control and will one day make all things right. Jesus took on the ultimate suffering by dying on the cross in our place so that we can endure suffering on earth and enjoy eternity with Him. (Romans 8:22-23.)
How can you share your story to tell others about Jesus? Remind kids that when his neighbors and the religious leaders asked the man what happened to him, he told them how Jesus had healed him. We can share how Jesus saved us and changed us. (John 9:10-11.)
REFLECTION AND PRAYER
Pray as a family and as the following questions:
What does this story teach me about God?
What does this story teach me about myself?
Who can I tell about this story?
