Use a hard-boiled egg to illustrate how Jesus can make us clean.
Show everyone a hard-boiled egg. This egg represents us.
Ask the children to suggest some things they have done that are wrong.
Write these on the egg using a black permanent marker.
Pass the egg around and ask the children to describe the egg. (e.g. hard, dirty, messy…)
Slowly peel off the egg shell.
Pass the egg around again and ask the children to describe the egg now. (e.g. soft, clean, smooth…)
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.
This egg represents us.
But I am not perfect.
I don’t think anyone here is perfect either.
Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard.
When we sin, our hearts become stained. Just like this egg.
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.
The payment for sin is death.
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 remove the egg shell, the egg looks nice and soft and clean once 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.
