Fill half the water jug with water. This water represents us.
Use the eyedropper or thin straw to add a few drops of food coloring into the water. This represents sin in our lives.
Be careful not to add too much food coloring, otherwise the bleach may not be sufficient to remove all the color.
Slowly pour liquid bleach into the water jug. The water should become clear again.
This illustrates the cleansing power of Jesus.
The amount of bleach required will depend on the concentration of the bleach you use, and how much food coloring has been added.
Keep in mind that the food coloring and bleach will stain or discolor clothes, carpets and even some furniture.
You may like to cover the table top with a plastic sheet and have a rag handy to wipe up any stains immediately.
It is important to experiment with this before presenting it to the child.
Bleach comes in varying concentrations, so the number of drops of food coloring that can be added to the water differs significantly.
Here are some key points to cover as you present the gospel.
You may need to tailor your gospel presentation to suit the age of your audience.
But I am not perfect.
I don’t think anyone here is perfect either.
When we add food coloring to the water, it stains the water. The water becomes dirty.
In the same way, when we sin, our hearts become stained.
Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard.
The payment for sin is death.
On our own, we can’t remove these stains from our hearts.
But God loves us so much that he provides a way for our hearts to be made clean.
When Jesus took the punishment for our sins, something amazing happened.
But God shows his great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Acts 13:30, 31
But God raised him up from the dead! After this, for many days, those who had gone with Jesus from Galilee to Jerusalem saw him.
When we add bleach to the stained water, it cleans the water. The water becomes clean again.
In the same way, when we accept Jesus into our lives, Jesus has the power to remove the stains from our hearts and make our hearts clean.
1 John 1:9
But if we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins, because we can trust God to do what is right. He will cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate having been made from a single pearl. And the street of the city was made of pure gold as clear as glass.
But to all who did accept him and believe in him he gave the right to become children of God.
God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
Invite the child to sincerely pray for forgiveness and for Jesus to come into his/her life.
Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me. I know that I have sinned. I have done things that are wrong. I believe that you died on the cross to take the punishment for my sins. Please forgive all of my sins and make my heart clean. Please come into my life and help me turn away from doing wrong. Thank you that with a clean heart, I can have a relationship with you now and will one day be with you in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
