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?

Yohane 10:10 " Ndadza Ine kuti akhale ndi moyo, ndi kukhala nao wochuluka".

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.

(Drama: 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 "Ndipo Yehova Mulungu anaumba munthu ndi dothi lapansi, (Thupi) nauzira mpweya wa moyo m'mphuno mwake; (Mzimu) munthuyo nakhala wamoyo. (Moyo)"

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 looks dejected,)

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

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.

Optional: Download Butterfly Life Cycle Visual Aid

Optional: Download 'Metamorphosis' video

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.

(Drama: Blow up SPIRIT's balloon the children turn and face the other direction with SPIRIT leading)

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: Aroma 7:15
"Pakuti chimene ndichita sindichidziwa; pakuti sindichita chimene ndifuna, koma chimene ndidana nacho, ndichita ichi."

(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
"Ndipo musafanizidwe ndi makhalidwe a pansi pano: koma mukhale osandulika, mwa kukonzanso kwa mtima wanu,"

How do we do that?

  1. Read your Bible
  2. Pray
  3. Worship
  4. Fellowship
  5. Witness
