Never Changing

God never changes

Key Verse

Hebrews 13:8

Additional Verses

James 1:17; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 1:12

Materials Needed

  • Colorful fall leaves. (If you don’t have any you can cut them out of colored construction paper or buy them at most craft stores.)

Object Lesson

(Show a variety of fall leaves).

During autumn all the leaves on the trees start to change colors. Red. Orange. Yellow. Brown. Do you know what they do after they change color? They fall down to the ground. That’s why we call it the Fall. Then we rake the leaves and we can jump and play in them.

Did you know that God is NOT like these leaves? In Hebrews 13:8 we read that Jesus is the same yesterday as He is today! And that He will be the same tomorrow too! That means we can trust, rely and depend on Him!

These leaves grow and are blown by the wind and they eventually change colors, die and fall to the ground. But Jesus will never change like that. Sometimes people change that way, but not God.

God is faithful and trustworthy. We can always rely on Him to do what He says and to keep His promises. His word is always true!

So when we drive around and see the beautiful fall leaves we should remember that even though they may change our God will never change! He will always be there for us to love us and to protects us.

The Trinity

The Trinity Object Lesson

Key Verse

Matthew 28:19

Additional Verses

1 Corinthians 8:6; Matthew 3:16-17; 1 John 5:7-8; John 14:26

Materials Needed

  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • Boiling water (You can use a hot plate to heat water or preheat water and put it into a Thermos or insulated container.)

Object Lesson

In Matthew 28:19 it talks about the Trinity. Do you know what the Trinity is? (Wait for any responses, but don’t be surprised if you don’t get too many.)

In Scripture we learn that God has three very distinct parts. God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These are three very distinct and unique parts of God, but they are all One! That is a confusing thing for many people to understand. How can God be three but also one?

(Show the glass of water.)

This water is going to represent God, specifically God the Father.

(Show everyone the ice cubes.)

Does anyone know what these ice cubes are made out of? (Wait for a response.) That’s right they are made of the same thing that is in this glass, water! Jesus had a physical body and form, just like these cubes have a very distinct shape and size. Jesus took a human body and became one of us. Even though this ice is different from the water, it is also the same.

(Open the Thermos so that you can see steam coming out.)

I have some boiling water here. Do you know what this faint smoke is? (Wait for a response.) This is steam. Steam is incredible powerful! It can power the largest machines in the world trains and huge ships! Do you know what steam is made out of? Water! It is the very same thing as the water and the ice, but it is an entirely different form. The Holy Spirit is like this steam. The Holy Spirit gives us great power in our lives and comforts us when we need it.

So even though the water, the ice and the steam are each unique and distinct they are also all exactly the same. In a similar way God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are unique and distinct but are also one.
