The Great Physician

Luke 5:31-32

This nursery unit is part of the Christian Search & Rescue VBS material (soon to be released.) It consists of a set of two books that together teach the concept of obeying Jesus. The first book, Some Days, relates to something the children can understand: being physically ill. The book teaches that one will only get better if he does what the doctor says to do. The second book, Other Days, talks about having a sad heart, also something the children can understand. The book teaches that one will only have a happy heart if he does what Jesus says to do.

When reading the books to the class, hold up the pages so the children can see and enjoy the bright colored cartoon graphics. Be sure to use proper voice inflection and facial expressions while reading. Encourage the children to make the faces with you. Doing so will draw the children's interest and help them retain what they are learning.

These books may be downloaded by clicking on the icons above. They may be printed on standard 8.5x11 paper using a color printer (an ink jet is fine!) For long term use, make a story board book. Mount the pages on the front and back of bright colored card stock. Laminate each card. Punch holes on the left side of each card using a 3-whole puncher. Put the pages in order, line up the holes, and put key rings in each set of holes. Alternatively, one can punch the holes across the top to make a flip chart.

These worksheets may be used to reinforce the lesson.

"Jesus answered and said to them,
"Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.
I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."

Luke 5:31-32
