The Gospel in a Nutshell

Children's Lessons Based on John 3:16

Objective: To help children understand and memorize John 3:16, "the gospel in a nutshell." 

The word gospel means, "Good News." When people hear this word, they often think of the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These four books of the Bible are known as "the Gospels." They're called this because they contain some really good news about our Savior, Jesus! But the gospel message is more than Jesus dying on a cross and rising from the dead to forgive our sins; it is that, but it is much more than that! The Gospel is an Old Testament* promise that God would reclaim, restore, and push back the curse of sin and death, in order to establish his rule and reign on earth, as it is in heaven. We live in the already and not yet of God's Kingdom rule. As God's children, we wait with expectant hope for Jesus to return to Earth someday to establish a new Heaven and a New Earth.

Skit: Disciples, Recycles?

The Great Commission

(You will need two people or two puppets for this children's Bible talk. Person 1 carries a bag with a Bible in it. Person 2 carries a large bag full of empty aluminum cans and glass bottles.)

Person 1: Hello kids, today we’re talking about being disciples for Jesus.

Person 2: (comes running in out of breath and carrying a large bag of cans and bottles) 
Did you say disciples? I thought we were talking about recycles! Look what I brought! (Proudly dumps bag of cans and bottles onto the floor.)

Person 1: Recycles? Why would we talk about recycling in church? 

Person 2: Aren’t we supposed to keep God’s planet clean?

Person 1: Yes, good point, but that’s not our subject today. Today, we’re talking about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus! The word disciple comes from the word “discipline.” 

Person 2: I don’t like discipline! 

Person 1: It’s not the discipline of punishment that you probably have in mind. The word disciple comes from a Latin word meaning . . . keep reading.

(Sermon requires two people. Familiarize yourselves with the sermon then adlib it.)

Person 1: (Removes hand-weights from bag and begins lifting them up and down.)

Person 2: What are you doing?

Person 1: Working out.

Person 2: Obviously. Why?

Person 1: I’m getting strong in the Lord.

Person 2: Really?

Person 1: Yup, I want to obey God and tell my friends about Jesus, but I’m not too good at it. So, I’m working out. I’m too weak in my faith.

Person 2: That’s a great goal. It’s important to be healthy so we can tell others about God, but what you’re doing won’t make you strong in Jesus!

Person 1: Why not?

Person 2: Because God has a better and more powerful way to . . .

Divine Appointment at the Pump

Evangelism Opportunities

"Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope" 1 Pe 3:15 (CEV).

Divine appointment at the pump, always be ready to give an answer for the hope within you
While driving to a nearby town, I prayed to God for the opportunity to share my faith with someone that day. Little did I know within a few minutes God would answer that prayer! But first, I needed gas; I pulled into Wal-Mart, which beat Speedway's price. When the following opportunity presented itself, it was up to me to honor God's answer to my prayer with obedience to Him.

As I filled my gas tank (18.9 gallons needed!) a gentleman in a big white truck opened up a conversation with me about the crazy games they play with the gas prices. Then he said, "Makes me feel like this life just doesn't matter. Do you ever feel that way?"
