Craft- Introduce today’s activity: Today we are learning how Jesus used the Bible to help him say “no” to the devil. Show the children your craft. Read the Scripture Memory Verse written in the pickle. Say: Just as we need bread we also need other nourishing types of foods such as meat and cheese. Jesus knows that the Bible is the best food for our souls. Just as it is important to eat food each day to stay healthy, it is also important to read the Bible every day to stay healthy in our souls. Today we will make hero sandwiches to remind us that true heroes are nourished by God’s word!
Hero Sandwich- from Jesus Defeats Satan: Lesson 1 (page 5, & 16).
On pickle: Jesus answered, "It is written, One does not live on bread alone." Luke 4:4
