Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 40-minute 0–5 lesson plan on the gift of salvation and the forgiveness that Jesus gives those who ask Him for it.
Read “God’s Great Love for Us.”
Talk about things that can be done every day to be a good reflection of Jesus. Ask the children whether it is always easy to do what is right or good, and why one might choose to do something that is wrong, unkind, or hurtful. Explain how Jesus wants to help His children choose to do what is right, and that help is available through prayer.
Read “Salvation Is Forever.”
Explain how even though someone may do wrong at times, if he or she comes to Jesus with a sorry heart and asks Jesus for His forgiveness, He is eager to help. Ask the children if there are any things that they could use Jesus’ forgiveness for, then take a few minutes to pray and ask Jesus for His forgiveness and His help to do better next time.
Read “Salvation Is Free.”
Read “Bright Pebbles: That Simple,” then complete the “action” on the last page.
Memorize John 3:16.
Read “Twice Mine.”
Listen to “My Little Thoughts on God: Salvation Is a Gift” and color one of the coloring pages.
End by praising Jesus for His love and gift of salvation.
