AS KIDS ARRIVE PRIOR TO THE LESSON:
Welcome Teacher, Trainers and students.

1. WELCOME GAME: (10 minutes)
TEMPTATIONS PANTOMIME:
Teacher writes temptations on little pieces of paper. (See suggestions in Temptation game #1 list) Children take a little piece of paper from the basket and pantomime their temptation and see if another class member can say what that temptation is. IF the "temptation" is guessed, then the child doing the pantomime will say loudly -- JUST SAY NO TO TEMPTATION. Then another child can take a turn!

2. GROUP GAMES: (10 minutes)
SAY "NO" GAME:
Children can line up against a wall and as the teacher says a temptation, children will say loudly SAY NO TO TEMPTATION! If the teacher says to do something GOOD that the children should do it they will say I WILL OBEY.

(See suggestions in Temptation game #2 list)

Maybe there will be a child who would like to be the leader and list something to OBEY or to say NO to!

GOD’S COMMAND
The Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2: 16-17)

Optional: Download 'Adam and Eve' Action song

Object lesson: "Who Stole the Cookies from the Cookie Jar?"
Sit the children in a circle and have a jar filled with cookies in the middle.

Accuser: Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar? (Name child 1) stole the cookies from the cookie jar.
Child 1: Who, me?
Accuser: Yes, you!
Child 1: Not me!
Accuser: Then who?
Child 1 accuses another child calling out her name eg (Mary) stole the cookies from the cookie jar.
Repeat the rhyme again and again with everyone in the circle accusing someone else of stealing the cookies from the cookie jar. At the end of the game the children can have a cookie.

You know, that must be the oldest game in the world – it started in the Garden of Eden . God made Adam and Eve and gave them a beautiful garden in which to live. He told them they could eat from any of the trees except for one tree in the middle of the garden.

Read Genesis 3: 1-13

Does that sound familiar? How many times have you heard someone that was caught doing something they shouldn't do say, "It wasn't my fault -- he made me do it!"

SKIT: (Bring the children up front again all holding the rope with the signes around their neck, Spirit still holds his big red balloon)

When sin entered the world, the Spirit within man was no longer in control. (Deflate the red balloon and instead of SPIRIT leading BODY turns around and face the opposite directio and takes over control. SOUL scratches his head and wonders what to do but eventually turns to face BODY and SPIRIT is deflated and dragged along behind them)

After the fall of man and before we give our lives to Jesus:

BODY -In control, following it's our desires, totally controlled by sin (BODY is given the bottle, pretends to be drinking and getting drunk. SOUL laughs and goes along, SPIRIT is very sad and is dragged along. “Let’s go to a party” BODY says, “Ya let’s go” says SOUL. And SPIRIT reluctantly is dragged along.)

SOUL -Controlled by body, Influenced by the world by what it sees and hears

SPIRIT - Weak, ineffective in bondage

• SIN SEPERATES US FROM GOD – man was removed from the garden; the garden represents the presence of God.
• SIN exposes us and we feel shame – when we sin we try to cover our sin with lies.
• SIN MUST BE PUNISHED – the wages of sin is death; but Jesus came so that we may be given life
• SIN IS THE CAUSE OF DEATH – we die a spiritual death because our spirit is cut off from God’s spirit; in natural death God’s spirit returns to HIM
• SIN WILL ALWAYS DECEIVE US – we were already created in God’s image and likeness
• A BLOOD sacrifice must be made to cancel out our sins

• God’s original plan for man was for him to live forever in fellowship with God.

But sin entered the world with consequences...

Optional: DOWNLOAD 'The true consequences' video

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:

CLOSING PRAYER: Our Father we know that sin changed us from our original form and separated us from You. After Adam and Eve , every human being was born of flesh and with a sinful nature (a desire to sin). But thank you God for wanting to change us back to Your original form, In the way You first created us. We know that You are loving but You are also just and must punish sin. Thank you that you solved this problem by sending your Son Jesus. We receive Him by Faith and seek your forgiveness of our wrongdoing as we turn from our sinful lifestyle cover us with your Blood In Jesus name. Amen
