God loves us very much.
In the beginning God created the sky and the earth.
So God made the wild animals, the tame animals, and all the small crawling animals.
So God created human beings in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female.
God loves us so much that he gave us a very special gift – his son, Jesus.
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.
I am the One who lives; I was dead, but look, I am alive forever and ever!
God doesn’t want any of us to perish. He wants us to be with him in heaven forever.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain.
Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard.
The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Cor 15:3
Christ died for our sins.
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.
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 pay the price for my sins. Please forgive all of my sins. Please come into my life and help me turn away from doing wrong. Thank you that because you paid the price for my sins, I can have a relationship with you and will one day be with you in heaven.
There definitely is a learning curve with this gospel tool, but all the kids got it. The grunge graphics are great for older kids.
Once you practice this, you can show it to many different ages while reciting it out loud. This style appeals to older children. The instructions that come with the tools are invaluable. They teach you how to use the tool and how to present the Gospel while using it. Children want to see me do it over and over again until they learn it and each time, I recite John 3:16 out loud. Then I say, “Would you like to try it?”, the can’t wait for that moment. I usually have to show them again one or two more times, but that just gives me more opportunity to recite the verse again!
I have used this in teaching the memory verse in scripture in schools. The children were so fascinated with it, that they were playing with it weeks afterward. It not only breaks the verse into achievable chunks,but especially engages the restless kineasthetic learners, as well as the visual and linguistic ones. Even the most reluctant child could remember the verse! It also helped in them willing to talk and think about the verse. I will use it again!
I used the John 3:16 Grunge FlipAbout with a group of 10- to 14-year-old girls. They were totally fascinated by it! What I really like about this gospel presentation tool are that: (1) It is very easier to use. (2) It breaks up the verse into manageable parts, so that we could take our time to discuss each part to ensure they truly understand the gospel message. (3) The folding mechanism is captivating without being distracting. When the girls first saw the flipabout, they were amazed and curious to know how it works. After being given less than a minute to examine it, they were happy to listen to my presentation, and they were fully engaged in a discussion about the verse.
