c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
This teaching is about getting set free! We can have the victory.
Jesus won the battle on the cross. Before being set free somebody
pushes our button (we all have them).we react, we are not free.
Are you walking in victory?
John 10:10 "I came that you may have life
and have it to the full!".
Are you having life to the full.or are you struggling, just coping
at school? Jesus wants to set you free, not teach you how to cope!
We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus..are you a conqueror
or are children rejecting you and bullying you? Or are you being
conquered by your emotions of anger, bitterness, unforgiveness,
rejection, loneliness, doubts, thoughts of suicide?
Most adult Christians don't have the victory,
they are like yoyos! (Use the YoYo to demonstrate)
We are created in God's image.
Lesson #9 Visual Aids
Get three volunteers to come out,
place the three signs around their neck, the largest child
-SPIRIT, give him the balloon, next largest - SOUL, smallest
child- BODY. Give them the rope to hold standing about two
foot apart in a line.)
Genesis 2:7 "And the Lord God formed man of the
dust of the ground , (BODY) and breathed into his
nostrils the breath of life; (SPIRIT) ( Blow
up the balloon,) and man became a living being (SOUL).
Walk around with Spirit leading in harmony with God. (Everybody
smiling and in unity) Then the fall... (all the children
turn and face the other direction, the balloon is deflated and Spirit
BODY is now in control, following our own desires, controlled by
sin, doing as we please.
SOUL is controlled by body, influenced by the world, by what it
sees and hears
SIPIRT is now weak, ineffective in bondage
(Drama: Body walks
around, swigging from a beer bottle, pretending to smoke and
do drugs, looking lustfully at the girls, having fun, party
time! Soul joins in and weak, inflated Spirit is dragged along.)
Compliments of https://sermons4kids.com/
But then something happened, it happened one night to a man named
Nicodemus who came to talk to Jesus. As Jesus was talking to
him, he said something that Nicodemus didn't understand. He
told Nicodemus, "No one can see the kingdom of God unless
he is born again." Nicodemus was really puzzled
by what Jesus said. He just couldn't understand how someone
could be born again.
This will help you understand
I think the butterfly is one of the most beautiful things
that God has ever created, but it wasn't always so beautiful.
Butterfly Life Cycle Visual Aid
The butterfly started out as a fuzzy little caterpillar,
no one would say that caterpillars are beautiful. A caterpillar
is a worm -- and worms are not beautiful!
Then, one day the caterpillar spins a cocoon about himself and stays there for several weeks.
When it comes out, it is no longer a caterpillar, it has
been miraculously changed into a beautiful butterfly. God didn't
just take a caterpillar and stick some wings on him! When the cocoon
opens and the butterfly crawls out, it is a new creation.
Bible says, "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!" When we invite Jesus to
come into our heart, we become a new creation. God doesn't just
clean us up, He makes us into a new person. Would you rather be
a worm or a butterfly? Jesus will make you into a new creation if
you will invite him into your heart.
Blow up SPIRIT's balloon the children turn and face the other
direction with SPIRIT leading)
' Now when the Trinity,
looks at us"
God, the Father says
"That's my house, I designed it!'
God the Son says
"That's my house I paid for it, by dying on the cross!"
God the Holy Spirt says
"That's my house I live in it!"
When we become "born again" normally no change takes place in our
soul and body. Body -is not born again, the battle is in the mind.
Even Apostle Paul struggled.
Read: Romans 7:15
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I
do not do, but what I hate I do"
(Drama: SPIRIT suggest going to church, SOUL
goes along with it but BODY is running in the opposite direction,
he is dragged along.)
Romans 12 : 2
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by
the renewing of your mind."
How do we do that?
- Read your Bible
Romans 12:2 Signs
( Drama: SPIRIT is strong, SOUL is transformed,
changed and BODY is beginning to come in line.)
