Stainless, Jesus Was Without Sin
Children's Object Lesson
Objects: black or dark nail polish, gauze or makeup pad soaked in nail polish remover, Ziplock bag. (keep the nail polish soaked cloth in the Ziplock bag to keep it moist until you need it.)
Scripture: I Corinthians 5:21 ďGod made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.Ē
I have a question for you. Who is Jesus? (Kids might say Godís son, etc.) Thatís right. You know who Jesus is, but the other day when I asked a group of kids if Jesus ever sinned. Boy was I was surprised at the answer! Did Jesus ever sin? NO. Thatís right! Jesus is holy and perfect like his Father. When God created the world, who were the first people He created? Thatís right, Adam and Eve; and everything was perfect. There was no sin. But God loved us and he created us with a choice. He didnít say, ďYOU HAVE TO LOVE ME!Ē Adam and Eve chose not to obey God and through them sin entered the world. Ever since then, we all sin. That means you and me. But God did not say, ď YOU HAVE TO!Ē Instead He said, ďI love you.Ē And He gave us Jesus to pay the price for our sins.
Let me give you an example. Letís see what a mess I can make. (Paint your thumbnail.) Letís say this nail polish is sin. See how it stains my nail. Now letís say this white cloth is Jesus. Jesus, who is perfectly clean and sinless. Now watch. (Remove the polish with the cloth.) Now look. The stain is on the cloth, just like Jesus took our stain on himself. Your parents or grandparentsí canít pay for your sins. Why not? They have sins of their own. Godís sinless and perfect Son took on our sins and paid the price for us. Now you have a choice: to love Him and accept His gift, or not.
In His Love,
