Jesus Calms the Storm

stormy weather

Jesus calms the sea.

Crowds of people were listening to Jesus and asked Him many questions and watched Him heal the sick. Jesus saw how tired his disciples were and decided to get a boat to take them to the other side of the lake.

Jesus climbed in the front of the boat and fell asleep on a pillow. Suddenly dark clouds appeared in the sky and the wind started to blow and the waves started to enter the boat and the disciples were terrified. 

They thought they might drown. They finally woke Jesus and said to Him, “Master”, “Do you not care if we drown? Jesus stood up and stretched out His arms to the wind and the waves and commanded, “Peace! Be still!” and the wind died down and the waves became calm. 

Jesus asked them why they are so fearful. How is it that you have no faith? Jesus showed his power, that even the wind and the sea obeyed Him. Jesus said that He will take care of you at all times.

With each Sunday school lesson, I try to give the kids special verses, activities and pictures to color in.

Please feel free to use them as you like for personal use in your own Sunday school classes.

Color the edgings with marker pens and a little bit of glitter. You can hand them out to the children to take home as bible verses for the day, even better if each child has a separate book, they can paste it into their own book.
