Seek and You will Find Something Good

Find how many times JESUS is hidden in the Jesus grid.
This is a great lesson for kids in a classroom setting. Tell them to find and circle Jesus in the puzzle. As soon as they find Him have kids come up and show you. As each one shows you that he has found Jesus, tell him, "You found Jesus, now you will receive something good!" and give him a little piece of candy. Have students continue to find and circle the name Jesus while they wait their turn and while they wait for the others to find Jesus. After all the students have "found" Jesus, read them John 3:16 from the Bible. Tell them about how God loved us so much that He sent His only son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Tell them that every person who finds Jesus will receive forgiveness of their sins, and the sweet joy and peace of a right relationship with God. Then tell them that finding Jesus is easier than finding His name in the puzzle. He is always right with us ready to hear our prayers, and guide us in the right way to live. The teacher may want to tell his own testimony of how he found Jesus or have a guest visit the class and give their testimony of how they found Jesus.
