This week’s Bible Verse tells us that Jesus is the only solution to our sin problem and the only way to Heaven. John 14:6
In this week’s lesson we looked at what would happen if people tried to fix their own sin problem instead of letting Jesus do it. In Matthew, Mark, Luke and John you can read the story of how Jesus wants to fix our sin problem and how He has provided us the way into Heaven.
Invite a Family
Think of a family that you know that does not attend church. Come up with a fun and creative way to invite this family to church with you this coming weekend. Be sure and meet up with them at church, show them around, answer any questions and even go out to lunch together. Talk to your kids about the importance of telling others about Jesus and inviting others to church.
Use your creativity and have each member of the family create a salvation bracelet. You can make the bracelet from beads or yarn or whatever is easy to find. The goal of this bracelet is to be able to walk someone through the story of salvation by going through each color on the bracelet. Here are the colors you will need. Black represents our sin. Because of our sin we are separated from God. Red represents God’s love for us. Jesus died on the cross for our sins to show how much He loved us. White represents our sins being taken away when we accept Jesus. Blue represents water and being baptized. We are baptized to show we have joined God’s team. Green represents growth. We can grow more like Jesus and closer to God by obedience. We should read our Bibles, pray, and come to church to learn more about God and do what He tells us to do. Gold represents Heaven. If we accept the invitation Jesus gives to follow Him, then we can spend forever with Him in Heaven. After you have created the bracelet, find one person this week who you can give this bracelet to and share the story of salvation.
