Becoming Shining Lights
Materials You Need:
A miniature torch (the smaller the better).
Grades 4 - 8 (10 to 14 years).
Living and doing our best for Jesus.
You don't have to be a huge search light to shine for Jesus and
please Him. I have a tiny miniature torch here ( Show the
tiny torch and shine it into the children's faces )
It's small but it shines brightly. At night you would be
able to see it shining from a great distance away from you!
We also need to shine because Jesus said:
"Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds
and praise your Father in Heaven" (Matthew 5:16).
Becoming Shining Lights:
Here are six steps to help us become lights that shine brightly
- Ask Jesus to forgive all our sins.
- Ask Jesus into our hearts and make us Godís child.
- Try to please Jesus in everything we do.
- Pray every morning and read a Bible passage.
- Ask Jesus to help us to be kind to others.
- Ask Jesus to forgive us when we fail.
Letting it Shine:
There is a song that goes:
"This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine!"
Often people will see that you love Jesus even if you don't say
anything! They see how you act and behave, and this tells them
that you are different, because the love of Jesus shines out of you.
You won't see this in your mirror, so don't worry about it.
Just pray and be determined to do your best for Jesus.
The Holy Spirit will do the rest and you will be a shining light
wherever you go!
