Jesus Walks on Water
Supplies: A picture of Jesus ( If you don’t have one in your home you can print the one here),
a bucket, a large spoon for each person, some plastic easter eggs, or similar objects
Place the Picture of Jesus across the room ( tape your printed ) and place the bucket directly underneath the picture. Take turns racing each other across the room to put your egg in the bucket- but you can’t touch the egg with your hand.
ALSO- very important- you cannot look at the egg- you have to KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS. If someone sees you looking at anything but Jesus or you drop the egg- you need to start over.
After you have played as much as you like discuss the following:
1) How does this activity remind you of our Bible story ( When Peter looked around and not at Jesus, that is when he sunk)
2) What makes you afraid?
3) How can focusing, or keeping our eyes on Jesus help? ( We trust that Jesus is more powerful than anything)
4) Is it easy or hard to keep looking at Jesus? ( It can be hard- sometimes we want to solve problems our own way and not trust Jesus)
Prayer: Dear Jesus, Thank you for all you have done for me. Help me to look to you when I am scared or in trouble and to trust you. Thank you for loving me. Amen
