When you start to share about your 'New Life in Jesus' you need to start by talking about Heaven

1•  Heaven is a free gift.

(Use First finger colouring visual aid, the thumb pointing up reminds us to start our Gospel Presentation talking about HEAVEN)


DRAMA: A free gift

First boy . I have a gift I want to give to you, but you have to work for it, first you must hop on one foot. now the other foot. great you have worked for your gift. (Open the box and give him a small gift )

Second girl. I have a gift I want to give to you because you look so nice, your hear is beautiful, your dress is lovely, you deserve this gift. (Open the box and give her a small gift )

Third child. I have a gift I want to give to you, you don't have to work for it and there is nothing you can do to deserve it, I just want to give you this gift because I love you with the love of the Lord.

(Open the box and give her a small gift and the banner rolled up in the box that says 'HEAVEN')

Heaven is a free gift

•  Was the first gift a free gift? NO he had to work for it.

•  Was the second gift a free gift? NO she had to deserve it.

•  Was the third gift a free gift? YES she did nothing to earn it or deserve it that is how it is with the gift of eternal life in Heaven it is not something you work for or deserve.


"For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord " Romans 6:23

Second group " through faith-and this not from yourselves,"

Fourth group " so that no one can boast."

Everyone shouts " Ephesians 2:8"



What is sin? Sin is anything we think , say , do or don't do that displeases God.

2. (The second finger is pointing, reminding us that when we point out other people's sin three fingers are pointing at us!)


FUN ACTIVITY: LONG JUMP TO HEAVEN Have one child dressed up like Jesus ( white wrap and blue sash across his chest ) standing at the far end of the room, draw a line on the floor far enough away from him that there is NO way the children can jump and reach him. Have the children take turns trying to long jump to Jesus. They all fail because:

We all sin, and we cannot save ourselves.

There must be a different way -


On one hand, God loves us and doesn't not want to punish us; but on the other hand, God is just and must punish sin.

(Use Third finger visual aid, this is the tallest finger pointing to God)


God is love 1 John 4:8b

He will by no means clear the guilty Exodus 34:7b


4•  God solved this problem by sending His son JESUS

(Use Fourth finger visual aid, this is the wedding ring finger, reminding us that God so loved us He sent His Son Jesus)



(Use Visual Aids)

Jesus is God! (Jesus is standing on a chair that is covered with a gold cloth, dressed in His blue and white wrap, wearing a crown holding a sign that says 'GOD')


He came from Heaven to earth. (Jesus steps down from the chair, removes His crown and has a sign that says 'MAN')


He lived a perfect, POWERFUL life (Double thumbs up!)

He died on the cross .(Jesus holds both hands out and head sagging like He is on a cross)

And rose from the dead, (Jesus lifts His hands up and steps forward from the grave victoriously)

To pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place in Heaven for us . (Jesus lifts His hands up to Heaven praying)

Jesus is in Heaven now offering us the FREE GIFT of eternal us life (Jesus reaches under the golden chair and pulls out a gift that he holds out)

(You may want the children to repeat after you this prayer )

If you want to give your life to Jesus, please pray this prayer after me.

I want to turn from my naughty, bad ways. -All the things that I do, - or don't do, - think and say - that displease you, - I repent, - I am truly sorry, - I turn from my old ways now. - Please cleanse me - and forgiven me - of my sins - I want to follow you.- Please come into my life - and take control, - I receive this gift by Faith - with a thankful heart, - thank you for welcoming me - into the Family of God. - Amen"
