Children’s sermon: Jesus is our Savior

Filed under: Children's sermons — denisedayspencer @ 7:14 pm

Another children’s sermon in my series based on the doctrinal summaries in the Disciple’s Study Bible.

SCRIPTURE: Acts 4:10-12

OBJECT: some type of swimmer’s lifesaving device

We’ve been talking about Jesus. We’ve learned that Jesus is God’s Son, and that He was really human when He was here on earth. It’s because Jesus was both God and man that He could be our Savior.

You see, Jesus was the promised Messiah that the Jewish people had been waiting for. When He was on earth as a man, Jesus was always saving people from all sorts of things. He saved sick people from their diseases. He saved possessed people from their demons. He saved His disciples from a terrible storm at sea. Sometimes He even saved people from death, bringing them back to life!

Because Jesus was human, He could die like all humans die. And because he was God, He was perfect and never, ever sinned. When He died on the cross, Jesus took our sins upon Himself and took our punishment. He’s the only One who could ever do such a thing for us.

Think about this: If you were drowning and someone threw one of these to you, you’d grab onto it, wouldn’t you? If you were going down under the water for the last time, this would be the only thing that could save you. Acts 4:12 says of Jesus, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

When Jesus rose from the grave, He proved His power over death itself. When we trust Him as our Savior, He rescues us from an everlasting spiritual death…and He gives us spiritual life forever!
