Sharing the Good News at Fall Festival
Intro Statements Have you received your Wordless Book yet? The shapes and colors tell the story. Let me show you how it works!
The Gold Circle What shape do you see? Where does it begin? Like the circle, God has no beginning or end. He has always existed. What does the shape remind you of? God created the sun, moon, stars & earth. He created you in love.
The Gold Circle What color do you see? The bright gold reminds us God is pure & holy. He has never done, said or thought anything wrong. God does not allow sin in heaven. The Bible describes Gods home of heaven as having streets of gold. The gold ring is given in marriage to celebrate love. John 3:16 tells us God loves the world.
The Dark Heart What shape do you see? The Bible uses the word heart to describe what you are like on the inside (what you do, think or say). What color is the heart? Jesus said that people love the darkness because they try to hide their evil deeds (Jn 3:19).
The Dark Heart The Bible says that all have sinned (Rom 3:23). All means everyone of us. Sin is what we do, think or say that does not please God. Sin separates us from God. Because sin cannot be in heaven. Our dark heart keeps us from being with God. The good news is that God has a plan to clean our dirty hearts.
The Red Cross There is 1 person who never had a dark heart. What symbol do you see? The cross is a reminder that God sent his son, Jesus, on a mission to pay the price for our sin. What color is the cross? Jesus shed his blood to pay for our sin when he died on the cross. Jesus did not stay dead, but rose again!
The Red Cross The Bible says that God showed His love for us in while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Rom 5:8). Because Jesus died and rose again, you can have your sins forgiven. Would you like to live in heaven with Jesus someday?
The Clean Heart What symbol do you see again? The heart is what you are like on the inside. What color is this heart? How does a dirty heart get cleansed? The Bible says that we must follow the A,B,Cs. Admit that we are a sinner & turn away. Believe that Jesus is Gods Son who died on the cross for our sin and rose again.
The Clean Heart Call upon Jesus personally to forgive you. The Bible says, Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Rom 10:13). Are you sorry for your sin and ready to turn away from what is wrong? Would you like to pray and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sin and give you eternal life?
The Prayer of Salvation Lord, I admit that I am a sinner. I do, think and say things that displease you. I turn away from that. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and being raise again to give me a place in heaven. Come into my life, forgive my sin, change my life, in Jesus name, amen.
Follow Up What is the background color for the book? Green reminds us of growth. You must grow as a Christian. Go to church. Read the Bible & pray. Obey Gods Word. Witness – tell your experience to others.
