Welcome to Discovery Land!! Lesson 19 March 4, 2007 Elisha Shows God’s Love Kim—Discovery Land Leader Discovery Land Kids
Story -- Elisha Shows God’s Love Elisha was out working hard in his father’s field when Elijah the prophet came by. Elijah came up and threw his cloak over Elisha. He did this to show that God had chosen Elisha to follow Elijah and learn from him. Elisha left home to learn from Elijah and help him. Years later God brought Elijah to heaven! Elisha was now the prophet of God
Elisha Shows God’s Love God gave Elisha power to do amazing things, even to help people who didn’t believe in or care about God. One man who didn’t care about God was the commander of the Aramean army (Israel’s enemy). This man, Naaman, got a terrible skin disease called leprosy. He tried everything he could think of to get rid of his disease. But nothing worked.

Verse 4: God’s power lives in me; God’s power lives in me. Now I have power to love my enemies, ‘Cause God’s love and power live in me.
Verse 1: People waved palm branches one sunny day; People praised Jesus in many ways. Some sang songs, some clapped their hands, some shouted words of praise. Jesus rode in on a donkey, and Easter was on its way. Chorus: Easter means salvation, salvation means we win! Easter means salvation, salvation means Jesus died for our sins, He rose again, And we’ll live forever with Him! Verse 2: Jesus died on the cross one dark day. Jesus died for our sins; He is the way. He was buried, He came back to life—He rose from the grave! This is what we celebrate every Easter Day! CHORUS Verse 3: Jesus friends talked to Him on Easter Day; Jesus’ friends walked with Him and talked and prayed. Jesus went to heaven, sent His Spirit here to stay. We remember Jesus’ death and resurrection when we say: CHORUS
Game Time!!!! Helping others is something we can do to show God’s love to others. Let’s play a game in which you have to help your partner.
What are some ways a person can show God’s love to someone else? Because God loves all people, He wants to help them. If a kid wants God’s help, what should he or she do?
God wants all of you to become His children. --John 1:12 Do you know why God wants you in His family? –1 John 4:8 We have all done wrong things.– Romans 3:23 The Bibles word for doing wrong is “sin.” What do you think should happen to us when we sin? –Romans 6:23
