Fishers of Men - Children's Sermon Object Lesson from Matthew 4

Fishers of Men - Children's Sermon Object Lesson from Matthew 4

This Children's Message is based on Matthew 4. The Bible object lesson will teach kids what it means to become "Fishers of Men" for Jesus. Print the sermon script and then watch our teaching demonstration video below. Share this message with your church, Sunday School, or children's ministry.

Main Objective: For young children, it might seem strange to hear Jesus promise His disciples that they will “fish for people.” This message explores that concept by explaining to students how God wants us to bring others to the knowledge of His salvation and family. We want to express to kids the importance of a life lived for and with Christ, and what a blessing it is to share with others!

Law/Gospel Theme: Jesus came to live among us and die for us to take away the guilty stain of our sins. He called His first disciples, who were willing to leave everything and follow Him. We should also be willing to do whatever it takes to follow Christ, and we should be eager to share the good news with others and “fish for people”!

Object Lesson Props: Fishing equipment, such as nets, rods, bait, tackle, etc; pictures of fishing boats or old fishing methods.

Don’t forget we post new children’s messages each week.
