Physical “object lessons” can be a super way to start a gospel conversation with someone. Also, because God has designed us to be visual, a good object lesson can be an effective way to help someone remember and retain the gospel message!
I recently learned about a GREAT IDEA for an “object lesson” from Open Air Campaigners Missionary Chris Reick. He told me that he got the idea from OAC guy Michael Bussen. (I love that I have a great, godly, and creative team that shares ideas with one another!)
This object lesson uses a shiny-sparkly gold treasure box to ask the question, “What Does God Treasure?”
I think this would be great to use with Children at a Kid’s Bible Club!
It could also be effectively used with adults as well.
I had the chance to try this out in the subway with adults last week, and the video is below.
I invite you to please take 7 minutes to view the video and see for yourself what it looks like to evangelize in the subways. Exciting stuff!!!
If you want one of these “treasure boxes” for yourself, please see this page with instructions on how to make one: http://luke-15.org/how-to-make-your-own-what-does-god-treasure-treasure-box/.
We love you and thank God for you! Please contact us anytime and let us know how we can pray for you!
And please feel free to forward this to anyone you think would be blessed by it!
For Christ and His gospel,
