Jesus is willing and able to make us clean.

Faith in Kids has released a series of 8 lessons ideal for family Bible times journeying through Matthew's Gospel to see we need Jesus. This video and accompanying resource, which is lesson 2 of 8 teaches us that we need to be clean.

This lesson in the series is based on Matthew 8:1-4, when Jesus heals the man with leprosy and in doing so highlights a wonderful truth, that Jesus, the King of the Universe, came to be a cleaner! The video uses visual aids such as mud and paint to show children how Jesus was able to heal the man with leprosy and not get dirty himself, and that we are just as desperate before Jesus. We also have an incurable disease that is slowly killing us all – sin. It brings death to our lives, to our friendships, to our families, to our world. We don’t deserve Jesus to help us. We come desperate. Jesus is able and willing to clean us all.  

Possible Discussion Questions

  • Do you kneel desperately before Jesus, dependent on him, bringing nothing, knowing no-one else can help you with your greatest need?
  • What did Jesus do that no-one else could?
