An easy-to-make card to help children find ways to help a friend come
to know Jesus as Best Friend and Saviour.
Sheets of A4 thin card.
For each child:
Steps to Jesus Card pattern (see below).
Coloured crayons or water paints.
Jesus wants us to tell our friends that He loves them very dearly.
Besides telling a friend, we need to pray for them. Friends need to
understand who Jesus is, and why He should be their Best Friend, Saviour
They also need to know that they are sinners, and that Jesus died for them,
and took their punishment on the cross. Jesus loves them and will
gladly forgive their sins and cleanse them with His precious blood.
They then need to ask Jesus to come and live in their hearts and they will
become one of God's children. They will then have eternal life in
Heaven when they die.
Divide the children into groups of three and let them discuss and then
decide on the steps their friend(s) will need to follow to come to know
and love Jesus. Then let them write these steps on their card.
After the children have completed their cards, encourage them to use the
steps on their card to approach and tell the friend about Jesus.
They need to realise that God has to work in people's hearts. This
takes time and so they will need to keep praying for the friend and not
give up. In God's time, the friend will come to the place where they
will have the opportunity to accept Jesus as Saviour.
