0–5 Lesson Plan: God’s Gifts of Salvation and Forgiveness

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.

ReadSalvation Is Free.”

ReadBright Pebbles: That Simple,” then complete the “action” on the last page.

Memorize John 3:16.

ReadTwice Mine.”

0–5 Lesson Plan: Jesus Is God’s Gift of Love

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 0–5 lesson plan on Jesus, God’s gift of love to us.

Read the devotional “Bright Pebbles: Jesus Is God’s Gift of Love.” 

Read the story “Twice Mine.”

Talk about how when you love someone very much, you want to do special things for that person. For example, a mother loves her child, so she gives special care and attention to her child in many ways. God’s love for us is better and bigger than anything you could ever imagine, and to prove that love He gave us the best present ever—His Son, Jesus.

Memorize John 3:16. Read this article for an explanation of this verse.

Read the devotional “Bright Pebbles: A Very Special Gift.”

Read the devotional “Bright Pebbles: Knock, Knock” and pray the salvation prayer at the end.

Do the activity “Safe in God’s Hand.”

Level 1 Lesson Plan: The Gift of Salvation

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30- to 40-minute lesson plan that highlights the lesson objectives: “Study and be able to describe the scriptural basis showing salvation as a gift that cannot be earned through good works. Learn how once someone has received the gift of salvation it won’t be taken away from him/her.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Salvation-1b,c)

ReadNicodemus Visits Jesus,” then talk about what Jesus meant when He said we must be born again in order to see the kingdom of God. Read the full story in John 3:3–21. Follow the activity steps explained in “‘Can We See God’ Supplement” of how we can look at the wind as an example of what Jesus described in John 3:8.

Color “‘Nicodemus Visits Jesus’ Coloring Page.”

ReadSalvation Is Free.” After page 2, talk with your children about times when they try hard to be good, but may fall short and sin. Then talk about how reassuring it is to know that Jesus paid the price for our sins when He died for us.

After page 3 of “Salvation Is Free,look up the word “wage” in a dictionary to help the children understand the meaning of the first part of Romans 6:23.

Next, ask the children if they can think of something really good they could do in order to be saved. Conclude the discussion by pointing out that no one is able to do anything good enough to earn salvation. Explain that God expects and wants us to do good things, but these good deeds can’t “pay” for our salvation.

Listen to Not by Works.”

Memorize “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23 NLT).

Read “Salvation Is Forever.” After page 2, discuss how once they’ve received Jesus’ gift of salvation, they don’t have to repeatedly ask Jesus for salvation every time they sin. Help them understand how the gift of salvation differs from suffering consequences for their sins, and discuss what a consequence might be for a sin they commit.

Read and talk about the verses on the last page of “Salvation Is Forever.”

Listen to Salvation Rap.” You can listen to this song again while doing one or more of the following activities.

Color “Coloring Page: John 1:12.”

Do the activity Safe in God’s Hand,” starting off by reading John 10:28–30.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Jesus Brought Us Salvation

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 20- to 30-minute lesson plan that highlights the lesson objective: “Learn of God’s unconditional love for each person; learn that Jesus, God’s Son, gave His life and then God raised Him back to life from the dead, so that one can be saved from one’s sins and receive the gift of eternal life in heaven through accepting the gift of salvation.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Salvation-1a)

*

Listen toJesus Really Loves You.”

Read John 3:16 Is for You.”

Memorize John 3:16. To help in memorizing this Bible verse, your children might enjoy making a poster for their wall. You can follow the example on the last page of “John 3:16 Is for You,” including the child’s name on the poster as well.

ReadBright Pebbles: Knock, Knock.”

Listen to Behold.”

View this classic picture, based on Revelation 3:20. Point out to the children how there is no doorknob on the outside of this door, because it’s up to the person inside to open the door of their heart to let Jesus in.

Color this picture that illustrates Revelation 3:20.

Read God’s Great Love for Us.”

Lead the children in prayer to ask Jesus into their hearts, if they haven’t already done so. And for those who have already received Jesus, lead them in a prayer of thankfulness and praise to Jesus for the gift of salvation He gave them. To help encourage the children in this prayer of thankfulness, review page 8 of “God’s Great Love for Us.”

Color the “Coloring Page: God’s Great Love for Us.”
