God Is The Lord
Second Commandment Bible Craft
Mark, a missionary from Austria, writes: "I am from California and my wife, Becky, is from Ohio. We met at Prairie Bible College in Alberta, Canada. Becky and I have been serving the Lord in Austria for
over thirty years. We have been helping to strengthen the evangelical churches and are now concentrating our efforts especially by doing children's programs at retreats or conferences. Our programs are usually in German. Our program for this year was about the
. We had Bible lessons and crafts for each commandment with songs that fit to each commandment. We are continually encouraged to hear that the children keep crafts they have done and remember the Bible lessons, songs, and verses they have learned.
Our son, Christopher Bryan, is a graduate assistant at Pensacola Christian College. He created the God Is The LORD craft to accompany our lesson on the 2nd Commandment.
Your servants in Austria for the children,
Mark & Becky Bryan"

What you do: Print out the God Is The LORD
. Put four letters on a page and cut them horizontally so that half-sheet pages with two letters on a page could be taped together. (I used Corel Photo-Paint and Word 2000 for cutting and fitting the letters on the paper.) The children colored each letter either with colored pencils or felt tip pens. Each half-sheet is folded in the middle. The children then tape them together in the right order so that "God is the Lord" can be read. The whole sentence is folded accordion style. After folding, foamy backing like book covers are glued on and the title strip, "God is the Lord" is glued on to the front.
The second commandment speaks against images of God - pseudo representations of God - which draw our attention away from Him. We are not to misrepresent God.
The words in this craft project, imbedded in each letter, speak of God's
character and draw our attention to the true God. He is THE LORD. We are to worship HIM the way He really is.
