Jesus was 100% Man

Family Fun Icebreaker: Do you cry at commercials on TV

Question: Who Is Jesus?

Today’s Big Idea: Jesus Is 100% Man

Admit it, sometimes the commercials get you and there are a few tears! We are emotional and once the tears start, it can be hard to stop them. Or maybe you find yourself laughing out loud at one. We relate to emotions. Jesus grew into a regular guy who had real emotions. Scripture shares that God sent Jesus from heaven to earth in order for Jesus to carry out and follow the plan that God set up. Read John 6:38–40. This passage explains God’s plan for Jesus. While on earth, Jesus operated as an ordinary person who put aside all of His godly abilities and behaved as a normal relatable man. Why would Jesus do that? He didn’t have to, but He put aside His divine nature to relate to you and me.

Talk with God: Read the scriptures aloud.

(About Jesus) There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Isaiah 53:2–3 NLT

Walk with God: Read aloud and discuss.

Jesus wept in John 11:35. This shows He had real emotions and feelings like you do. He lived a regular life during this part of His life on earth so that He could relate to you.

Discuss with your family: How does knowing that Jesus was a regular guy help you relate to Him more?

Prayer suggestion: Pray for God, the Father, to show you how you can have a real relationship with Jesus.

I will be praying for you!
