1 John 3 : 16Presentation(Adapted from “ Knocking on Doors, Opening Hearts” by Dr Ralph W Neighbour, Jr.)
2 GODStep 1Everything begins with GOD. (Write over the word GOD.) God created the heavens and the earth. He is a powerful, personal and loving God.
3 GOD/MANLIFEStep 2God created MAN, including you and me. (Write over the word MAN). He created man to have a permanent relationship with Him and to live with Him forever – to have eternal LIFE. (Trace over the long horizontal arrow and write over the word LIFE.)
4 MANGOD / MANLIFEStep 3God also created Man to have a free will to choose. Unfortunately Man chose to disobey Him. (Strike out the word MAN that is next to the word GOD and write over the word MAN at the base of diagram).
5 SINMANGOD / MANLIFEStep 4This resulted in SIN. (Write over the word SIN). Sin is not just doing wrong things. Sin is a nature within us that chooses to do our own thing rather than what God wants us to do.
6 GOD / MANMANLIFEDEATHSINStep 5Because of Sin, man is physically and spiritually separated from God, which is the opposite of life, or DEATH. (Trace the long horizontal arrow and write over the word DEATH).
7 GOD / MANMANLIFEDEATHSINCHURCHWORKSOTHERSStep 6Yet, man has an inward desire to go back to God. (Write over the following words as you speak: Church, Good Works, Others). Man has tried his own ways to reach God – going to CHURCH; doing GOOD WORKS; and OTHER ways. But we cannot reach God through our own efforts.

Let’s also write your name below mine.
11 GOD / MAN MAN LIFE DEATH John 3:16 SIN JESUS Step 10 CHURCHWORKSRELIGIONStep 10(WRITE JESUS ON TOP OF THE WORD SIN ON THE CROSS).Jesus is the One who did us the greatest favour.
