What we learned in Elementary...April 17/18, 2010

Virtue: Friendship—spending time with someone you trust and enjoy. Memory Verse: “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” - Proverbs 17:17 (NIrV) Bible Story: What’s Cookin’? (breakfast with Jesus) • John 21:1-14 Bottom Line: A true friend will make time for you. This weekend our goal in Beach House was to paint a very powerful picture of Jesus’ friendship with the disciples as we go to the Sea of Galilee where Jesus had breakfast with His best friends after His resurrection. The disciples had been fishing all night without any luck when Jesus showed up and performed the same miracle that He did when He first met them. It’s a moment of nostalgia. They cast their nets on the other side. The nets fill with fish. They bring the fish to shore. Jesus cooks the fish and there you see the picture of the King of Kings, the Christ, the Messiah, eating breakfast with His closest friends on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. There was something in the relationship Jesus had with these men that created a powerful desire to spend time with them. He spent time with them as a way to show them that He loved them.
