He emptied himself made himself nothing. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: The String 1. Remove the string and show it to the children 2.

Display the bag of tea leaves to the children. 2. Explain: Tea looks like dirt. If you put it in water the water will be changed to the color of the tea. It will no longer be clear and pure. 3. Demonstrate by dropping a bit of tea into the glass of hot water and stirring it around. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: 4. Explain: We are all like this tea bag in that we are born with dirt in our lives. We are not pure. The Bible calls this dirt, this impurity, sin. We need help from God to remove the sin from our lives. That’s exactly why Jesus came – to help us remove the sin from our lives. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: We must trust Jesus to remove the sin from our lives. When we ask him for forgiveness, he will make us clean and pure again. 5.

It will open into a long tube that you can stand on the second saucer. 2. Explain: When Jesus removes the sin from our lives we can stand pure and proud in the sight of God. We will become a light for God. Philippians 2:15 says that among the perverse generation we will shine as lights in the world. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: Lights for Christ 1. Light the bag from the top and allow it to burn. 2. Explain: As you shine for Jesus you shall become closer to God in your Christian walk, and one day your soul shall join him for eternal life. Just as Christ was resurrected and went to be with the Father, we will also rise up to be with him. We will be exalted and raised with him. 3. The tea bag will float up as it burns. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: Summary That’s the story of Easter. Jesus set aside his titles and emptied himself and became one of us. He came with a purpose, to cut us free from the things of the world. He was pierced for us. And when we ask his forgiveness, he will take away the dirt from our lives and make us pure. We will can stand strong and become his light to the world. Just as he was risen we will also rise to be with him. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeObjectLessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: MORE IDEAS?
