Talking Points: Jesus’ lights shines bright through all who know Him.
Material Needed: plastic wrap, tape (preferably marking tape like you would use to paint edges with), tissue paper, glue
5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
Talking Points: Jesus is like a beautiful bright light in us. When we know Him and obey Him, everyone can see that He is living inside us. He shines through us like a bright light. We should never hide this light or try to turn it off. It is this light that gives us life, gives us joy, and leads us to Heaven one day.
Questions: What helps you see in your room when it is dark? What is the brightest light you can think of? Do you want to shine brighter than that for God?
Activity: (taken from Disney Family Fun Magazine, August 2011)
Tape the plastic wrap to a window. Let the child rip the tissue paper into small pieces and glue it onto the plastic wrap like a stained glass window. Explain to the child that the sun shines through the paper, making a beautiful work of art, just like Jesus shines through us!
Prayer: Dear God, please make us a light for You! We want to shine bright. Amen!
