Possible Viewpont: Evangelical Christian

Title: Understanding God’s Love: The Story of Reconciliation

Lesson Objective: To help young children understand the concept of reconciliation and salvation through the story of Jesus’ love for us.

Hey there, kids! Today, we are going to talk about a very important word: reconciliation. Can you say that word with me? Reconciliation! It’s a big word, but it has a very special meaning. Reconciliation means making things right when they are broken or separated. And do you know who is really good at reconciliation? That’s right, it’s God! He loves us so much that He wants to bring us back to Him when we are separated from Him because of sin.

Let me tell you a story about a man named Jesus. Jesus was God’s Son, and He came to earth to show us how much God loves us. Jesus taught people about God’s love and did miracles to show how powerful God is. But some people didn’t understand Jesus and did mean things to Him. They hurt Him and even put Him on a cross to die. It was a very sad and scary time.

But do you know what? That’s not the end of the story! Because even though Jesus died, He didn’t stay dead. Three days later, He came back to life! And do you know why He did that? It’s because He wanted to show us that God can bring us back to Him too. Jesus made it possible for us to be forgiven and reconciled to God because He loves us so much.

Craft Activity:
Now, let’s make a special craft to help us remember the story of reconciliation. We are going to cut out two paper hearts and then connect them with a piece of string or ribbon. On one heart, we will write “God” and on the other heart, we will write “Us.” This will remind us that through Jesus, God brings us back to Him and loves us no matter what.

Remember, kids, God’s love for us is so big that it can bring us back to Him when we are separated because of sin. Jesus showed us how powerful God’s love is by dying and rising again. So whenever we feel sad or scared, we can remember that God loves us and wants to reconcile with us. We just need to trust in Jesus and His love for us.

Dear God, thank you for loving us so much and for sending Jesus to reconcile us to You. Help us to trust in Your love and remember that we can always come back to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

I hope you learned a lot about reconciliation and God’s love today. Remember to share this story with others and always trust in God’s love for you. See you next time!

Object Lesson

Props needed:
– Two pieces of paper
– Tape
– Marker

1. Begin by talking to the children about the concept of reconciliation and salvation. Explain that reconciliation means to mend or repair a broken relationship, and that salvation means to be saved or rescued from something.

2. Take the two pieces of paper and draw a broken heart on one of them. Then, cut the heart in half to illustrate the broken relationship between God and people because of sin.

3. Use the tape to stick the two halves of the broken heart back together, demonstrating the idea of reconciliation through God’s love and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

4. On the other piece of paper, write the word “salvation” and explain to the children that this is what happens when we accept God’s love and forgiveness.

5. Conclude by emphasizing that God’s love and salvation can mend our broken relationship with Him, and that through His love, we can experience reconciliation and be saved from the power of sin.

Craft Idea

Craft Idea: Forgiveness Tree

– Small branches or twigs
– Small flower pots or jars
– Clay or Play-Doh
– Construction paper
– Scissors
– Markers
– Glue

1. Begin the lesson by discussing the concept of reconciliation and salvation in the context of God’s love. Help the children understand that God’s love is shown through forgiveness and reconciliation.

2. After the lesson, introduce the craft activity. Explain to the children that they will be creating a forgiveness tree to symbolize God’s love for us and the importance of reconciliation.

3. Give each child a small branch or twig and a flower pot or jar. Have them place the branch in the pot or jar and use the clay or Play-Doh to secure it in place.

4. Cut out heart shapes from the construction paper and have the children write down the names of people they need to forgive or ask for forgiveness. Encourage them to think about how God’s love and forgiveness can help them reconcile with others.

5. Once the hearts are filled out, have the children attach them to the branches using glue. This will create a beautiful forgiveness tree with the names of the people they want to reconcile with.

6. As they work on their forgiveness trees, have a discussion about the importance of forgiving others and seeking reconciliation, just as God has forgiven and reconciled with us.

7. Encourage the children to take their forgiveness trees home as a reminder of the lesson and to continue to pray for reconciliation with those they have written on the hearts.

This craft activity will help the children to understand the concept of reconciliation and forgiveness in a tangible way, tying in with the lesson on ‘Understanding God’s Love: The Story of Reconciliation’.
