Object Lesson/Christian Illusion – Christ In You
About the lesson:
This is a fun lesson using a simple illusion prop called a “thumb tip” which will help you teach your class about Jesus coming and living inside of you. It also will teach about the signs you should be exhibiting when He IS inside of you along with how we should be a witness to others.
What you need:
- Thumb tip magic prop – the one I use can be purchased from Amazon.com at the link below
- Small red silk handkerchief – The one I recommend can be purchased from Amazon.com using the link below:
Today we are going teach on, Jesus coming and living inside of us!
In Galatians 2:20 Paul wrote and said, “I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I love, yet not tI but Christ living IN ME… and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved and gave himself for me.”
Show the small red handkerchief
This little handkerchief today will represent Jesus. And when you get the Holy Ghost Jesus, the God who made EVERYTHING…
Every single one of us
Comes to live INSIDE OF US! HOW COOL IS THAT?!
START PUSHING THE HANDKERCHIEF INTO YOUR HAND AND INTO THE THUMB TIP
When we get the Holy Ghost God himself comes and makes our heart HIS HOUSE!
He goes EVERYWHERE WE GO! He works with us and through us to do His work! How incredible!
But Can you SEE Jesus living inside of someone?
No you cannot – He’s there all right but you can’t see Him
OPEN YOUR HANDS DRAMATICALLY AND SHOW THAT THEY ARE EMPTY
Oh, you know He’s there because you have love like never before
Peace like never before and so many other neat things!
Other may not SEE Him inside of you but they can sure enough see the signs!
The INITIAL sign that you go the Holy Ghost was you speaking in tongues but the ONGOING SIGNS are… WHAT?
The fruit of the spirit!
When JJesusis in you YOU CHANGE! If you didn’t change maybe you didn’t get the Holy Ghost! You should see SIGNS or FRUIT OF HIS SPIRIT
People should start seeing and experiencing different things when they get around you like…
And when they start to see these things in you, they are going to come to you and ask, “what makes you so different?”
“How can you be calm when everything around you is going crazy?”
“How can you have peace even when bad things happen to you?”
“Why are you always so happy?”
“Why do you treat everyone around you with respect and love no matter what they say or do?”
And when you hear that, you can say, “Well, let me tell you about my Jesus.” You can put Him out and share Him with others
PULL THE HANDKERCHIEF OUT OF YOUR “HAND’ AND SHOW IT OFF
This is a great trick and lesson and is REALLY easy to do but you do still need to practice at least a little bit to make sure it looks smooth and that the kids cannot see anything telling.
You start the trick with the handkerchief in sight and the thumb tip on. You stick your thumb into your curled hand and pull it out leaving the tip inside… you then push the handkerchief inside and put your thumb back in.
When you take your hand away it will look like the handkerchief vanished. Just keep your hands moving and if possible, the thumb with the tip on it facing directly at the kid so they see it straight on. If it is facing to the side you can sometimes see what is going on.
Just reverse the process when you pull it back out.
This is a simple but effective trick and lesson. If you have another way to use this same object lesson please tell me about it by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by commenting on this lesson.
God bless and happy Sunday Schooling.
