- Rainbow Loom style bracelet. These are bracelets that are made by connecting very small rubber bands together in creative patterns.
(Show the bracelet.)
Do any of you have a bracelet or necklace like this? Have you ever made one before? Do you know what the cool think about these bracelets is? That they are made from dozens of little rubber bands.
(Point to one of the bands in the middle.)
Do you know what would happen if I cut this band here in the middle? (Wait for a response.) That’s right, the whole thing would come all apart. This bracelet is made up of a bunch of small little bands so you would think that some bands might be less important. In reality, all of the bands are important and if just one of them breaks then the whole band comes apart.
The Body of Christ is very much like this. In 1 Corinthians 12:21-26 it talks about how each and every person plays a very important part in the Body of Christ. One part can’t say that it is any more important than another. We are all important to God.
When we are all working together, like this bracelet, then we are in unity. That means that we are working together to do God’s will! God doesn’t want us always fighting with each other. He wants us to work together, because when we are in unity we can accomplish so much more than we can alone.

- Bag of charcoal
(Hold up the bag of charcoal.)
Have you ever had a barbecue outside using this before? Most people use gas grills these days, but nothing can compare to the taste of something grilled over charcoal. Most people don’t use them because they are more difficult to light.
(Pour out a pile of briquettes.)
You start with a pile of briquettes which you light and let it burn until they are all hot. Then you spread them out on the grill and cook over the fire.
(Remove one of the briquettes.)
What do you think would happen if you reach in and grab one of the briquettes and take it out of the fire? (Wait for a response.) That’s right, it would go out because it is not longer close to the fire. What would be the best way to get this briquette hot again? (Wait for a response.) Put it back in the fire!
In Hebrews 10:25 it says that we should not forget about getting together with other believers. When do we do that? When we come to church, or have a small group or even getting together with other people who follow Christ for dinner. When we start forgetting to do this it is like pulling that briquette out of the fire. (Pull the briquette out again.) We may stay on fire for God for a little while, but we will soon burn out.
What do you think is the best way for us to get fired back up again? To start to fellowship with other believers and start going to church again. This is how we make sure we stay on fire for God.
