Goodbye Sins

-A microwave or stove
-A pan or bowl with a lid
-A Bible marked at Romans 5:8

Add some salt to water and take a taste.
ASK—How did it taste? (Pretty nasty, huh?)
SAY—Salt water tastes bad and if you drank a lot of it, it would make you sick. Salt doesn’t belong in drinking water and sin doesn’t belong in our lives.

Heat the water on the stove or in the microwave until it boils.

Remove the water from the heat source (This is something an adult should do) and put a lid on it. Let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute and then remove the lid. Wait until the water on the lid cools and then take a taste. The saltiness is gone.

SAY—Just like the salt disappeared, when we ask Jesus to forgive the wrong things we’ve done (our sins), He takes them away too.
Read Romans 5:8 from your Bible.

SAY—We can say yes to Jesus and give our lives to Him and follow Him every day because He loved us enough to die for us and then He rose from the dead.

PRAY—List prayer requests and thank Jesus for dying to pay the price for our sins so that we could be forgiven.
