A lesson in Sunday school

A lesson in Sunday school

This is an illustration of how Christ washes our sins away.

1. Write your name in permanent marker on a small square of fabric.
Place it inside a heart.

God created us and loves us.

2. Color your thumb with any washable marker.

This will represent our sin.

3. Dirty your heart with your thumb.
Color your thumb multiple times with multiple colors.

Our sin has dirtied our hearts.

4. Drop fabric into warm soapy water.

5. Scrub.
(Tip: Don’t scrub with the dirtied finger; it gets everywhere!)

Christ’s work of dying on the cross is the only thing that can cleanse our dirty hearts.

6. Remove from water and let dry.

What happened to my heart? What (Who) took all the color upon Himself?

Isn’t that beautiful??

I really appreciate the new Sunday school curriculum our church has chosen, Treasuring Christ.
This is consistently the type of illustration and activity that we are encouraged to use. I. Love. It.
