Christ in You -
You Can't See It, but Nothing
Can Beat It
This activity will demonstrate that the
source of strength can be something unseen.
FOR THIS ACTIVITY YOU WILL NEED:
Two empty plastic bottles (water
or soda) with caps
Glove or a Sock Puppet
bottles might be too strong for this activity.
TO DO THIS ACTIVITY:
He is like
the man of Jeremiah 17:5:
Keep one bottle uncapped,
and introduce it as someone who is not born again.
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,
and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
You can explain
the 'cap' by going to Ephesians 1:13 and 14.
Cap the other bottle, and introduce it as someone who
is born again.
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also, after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit
Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased
unto the praise of his glory.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
The ability of someone who is born again (sealed with
holy spirit) is stated in Philippians 4:13:
Which man has real strength?
Who is uncrushable?
Now give a child a glove or a sock
puppet, and tell him that the "puppet's" name is FEAR.
Have a child try to crush
both the capped and uncapped bottles with the FEAR puppet.
He should be able to crush the uncapped
bottle, but the capped bottle should be too strong to be crushed.
The man who trusts in the
strength of men or the man who trusts in the power of God?
Fear can't crush us when we claim
the strength we have in Christ.
