another creative idea!
A silk appears to vanish and or appear as if from thin air. This great utility device is a classic of magic. It will help you give the example that God’s blood covers our sin so we can have eternal life.
(start with the thumb tip on your right thumb)
Say: John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life.”
Say: All of us have sinned. Sin is anything that you do, say, or think that makes God unhappy. (show a black silk or black string or dirty cloth. Anything that will represent sin and fit in your thumb tip.)
Say: God gave us His son, Jesus, to shed His blood for our sins. (show a red silk or tissue or something to represent Jesus’ blood) (place this on your left hand shaped like a fist with the “hole” formed by your thumb and fingers pointing up)
Say: God decided that He wanted to provide a way for us to live with Him forever in Heaven. We have to accept that in faith. (as you talk about this poke your “thumb tip” thumb into the center of the red silk leaving the thumb tip behind.)
Say: Jesus died on the cross to cover our sins (start to slowly poke “sin” into the red silk. Use your pointer finger, middle finger, and thumb acting as if you are really pushing the sin silk way into the red silk really pushing it into the thumb tip.) (the last time push the thumb tip onto your right thumb and take it away.) (hold onto the red silk tight as if you still have the “sin” inside of the red silk. During this time, discard the thumb tip into your pocket. Remember to do this so no one notices.)
Say: Jesus took our sins and covered them with His blood. The Bible says in 1 John 1:9 “But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” (open the red silk to show the “sin” is gone.)
Say: Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day so that we can have eternal life with Him. Ask God to forgive your sins today.
