1. GAMES: (10 minutes)
I went to the Market: Give each child 5 beans and then start asking questions, if they say Yes or No they give you one of their beans. Start with fun questions but this game can continue into more therapeutic questions.

2. TEAM GAMES: (10 minutes) 'Jesus says' similar to 'Simon says'
One player takes the role of "Jesus" and issues instructions (usually physical actions such as "Jesus says ... jump in the air" or "Jesus says ...clap your hands ") to the other players, which should be followed only when prefaced with the phrase "Jesus says". Players are eliminated from the game by either following instructions that are not immediately preceded by the phrase, or by failing to follow an instruction.

Teaching:
Look at this beautifully wrapped gift. Do any of you like to receive gifts? Of course you do! If I were to give this package to you and ask you to give me five dollars, would it be a gift? No. When someone gives you a gift, it doesn't cost you anything. It doesn't come with any conditions. All you have to do is accept it. That's what makes it a gift.
What was the best gift you have ever received?
(Allow the children to answer)

I want to tell you about a gift that is, without question, the greatest gift ever given.

What is that gift? It is the gift of eternal life. It is the gift of God and it was given to anyone who wants to receive it. The Bible says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Whoever -- that's you and me. The greatest gift of all is for you and me.

When someone gives you a gift, it is never polite to ask, "How much did it cost?" But in this case, the Bible tells us how much God's gift cost -- and the cost was great. It cost God his only Son. Can you imagine how much God loved us to send his one and only Son to earth to die on a cross so that we could have eternal life? Eternal life -- what a gift! And all we have to do to receive it is believe and accept Jesus as our Saviour.

WHAT STOPS US FROM GETTING THIS GIFT?

Sin – What is sin? Sin is anything we think, say, do or don’t do that displeases God.

The Bible says “For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord Romans 6:23

We all sin, and we cannot save ourselves.

There must be a different way – God’s way

On one hand, God loves us and doesn’t not want to punish us; but on the other hand, God is just and must punish sin. God is love 1 John 4:8b

He will by no means clear the guilty Exodus 34:7b

DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM?
God solved this problem by sending His son Jesus

Jesus is God!

(Jesus is standing on a chair that is covered with a gold cloth, dressed in His blue and white wrap, wearing a crown holding a sign that says ‘GOD’)

He came from Heaven to earth. (Jesus steps down from the chair, removes His crown and has a sign that says ‘MAN’)

He lived a perfect life (Double thumbs up!)

 

He died on the cross …(Jesus holds both hands out and head sagging like He is on a cross)

And rose from the dead, (Jesus lifts His hands up and steps forward from the grave victoriously)

To pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place in Heaven for us. (Jesus lifts His hands up to Heaven praying)

Jesus is in Heaven now offering us the FREE GIFT of eternal us life.(Jesus reaches under the golden chair and pulls out a gift, He steps up on the chair and holds the gift out)

The Bible says: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16.

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
If you are a Christian this is just a reminder you can say this prayer again. But if you have never given your life to Christ Jesus then this is your chance. Tell Him " Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son Jesus, to show us the way and to die for our sins. I am sorry for the wrongs I have done, I am turning away from them and receiving your gift by faith. Today I thank you for forgiving me, I trust you to take care of me and help me have the power not to hate and not to fear. In Jesus Name Amen"
