Pumpkin Patch Salvation
A Hands-On (Holiday) Family Bible Study
Being a Christian is kind-of like being a pumpkin!
First, God picks you from the pumpkin patch and brings you in from the field. The Bible says He created you in a unique and special way, and that He loves you!
"Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being." Isaiah 66:2
He then washes all the "dirt" off of us.
"Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sin." Act 22:16
Then He carefully removes all the yucky stuff, called sin, from inside us.
Create in me a pure heart, O God." Psalm 51:10
Next He carves us a new, smiling face! We are changed by the power of His hand in our lives! We are so thankful for these changes, we can't help but show it on our faces.
"A cheerful look brings joy to the hearts of others." Proverbs 15:30
Finally, He puts his Spirit in us, so that we can shine from the inside out! Jesus is called the Light of the World, and when He lives in us, we shine before others!
"Let your light so shine before men that they may be able to see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven." Matthew 5:16
Just a fun way to make Jesus the reason for this season too! :)
