Through our curriculum, the Gospel Project for Kids, we take children on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Your children will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. They engage through story, activities, scripture memorization, and prayer.  Each week, we send families lesson overviews and valuable links so that parents can engage with their children to prepare them for the coming Sunday's lesson. 

SUNDAY, SEPTMBER 25 | Elisha Performed Miracles  

  • BIBLE PASSAGE: 2 Kings 4–6
  • MEMORY VERSE: Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:5
  • BIG PICTURE QUESTION: Kingdom Kidz Junior What is idolatry? Idolatry is loving something else more than God. Senior Kingdom Kidz What is idolatry? Idolatry is a sin of the heart in which we love and value something else above God.
  • CHRIST CONNECTION: Elisha’s miracles showed that he was a prophet of the one true God and that God’s words were true. In a greater way, Jesus’ miracles show that He is the true Son of God.  

Miracles are often found in Scripture as a means of God doing what nature cannot explain to show His own power and authority over all things. This portion of 2 Kings 4–6 is no different. But these miracles don’t just teach us about God; they also demonstrate our human nature—to doubt when circumstances appear to leave us with little to no control.  

Many of the miracles performed by Elisha in 2 Kings 4–6 come in moments when the human dilemmas of sin, death, fear, worry, and lack are realized and people are overtaken with doubt.  

Have you ever felt this way? Have you ever felt as if your back was against the wall, your limits had been reached, and there was no way and no reason for hope in a particular situation? If so, you’re not alone. We all have moments when it seems as if we’re done and there’s no way out.  

God in these moments of doubt becomes our only hope, our beacon, our help. And though we ought to have some sense of confidence in this all the time, the reality is that we often lose sight of how deeply we need the Lord until He is our only way out. Be reminded today that He isn’t just your help from time to time, but your only hope time and time again.
