Children need to know that as a child of God He will never leave them. Use this lesson to help children understand salvation and the love of God.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.“
Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)
The Love of God is HUGE. It is bigger than anything.
What are some big things?
God’s love is bigger than any of those things. He loves us so much that even though we have done naughty things, God gave His Son Jesus to take away our sin.
What is sin?
The naughty things we do are sin. Moms, dads, boys, girls, and even grandpa and grandmas have sinned. Everybody, but God has sinned.
God loves us and wants us to go to Heaven to be with Him someday, but there is no sin in Heaven. Jesus, God’s Son never sinned, died, and rose again to take away our sins.
Would you give up your favorite thing in the world for someone who was naughty and mean to you?
God gave His only Son for us because He loves us. If we pray and tell God we are sorry for our sins and believe that Jesus died and rose again, God will take away our sin and we can go to Heaven someday. God takes our sins and throws them far away where they are gone forever.
Have someone toss or roll a ball.
We can still see the ball. God loves us so much He throws our sin where we will not see it again. When we do naughty things and sin again, we can ask God to forgive us and He will throw them away.
Sometimes people who love us leave.
Does that make you sad?
After we ask God to take away our sin and believe in Him, He will always be with us. We cannot see God, but He is always there. God will NEVER leave us. There is not anything that can separate us from God’s love.
Take a piece of duct tape, fold it over, and put the sticky sides together. Set it in the sun and make sure it is stuck together tightly.
God’s love is stronger than duct tape that is stuck together. We cannot be peeled away from God’s love.
Read Romans 8:38-39.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (KJV)
These verses mean that when we believe on God, He is with us now and when we die. He loves us and keeps us safe from things we see and the things we can’t see.
Do you know what you are going to be doing years from now?
God knows what things are going to happen to you now and in the future and He will not leave you.
Where is the highest place you could go?
You cannot get away from God’s love in the highest place or in the lowest place.
God loves you, sees you, and cares about you ALL the time!
