Children’s Message – 12/2022
Let it, Snow, Let it, Snow, Let it Snow – Isaiah 1:18
(I wrote this message several years ago, I’ve made several corrections and additions)
(You’ll need two things for this message. First, you’ll need to purchase some fake snow. You can buy the kind available at the store and have it in a bag ready to throw. You can also get dry snow online or at some stores, where you add a little water, which becomes a container of snow. Also, an excellent handout would be Hostess (or any brand) cake snowballs. They tie in very nicely with the sheep and white as snow references)
I want you to raise your hand if you’ve ever seen snow?
How many of you have played in the snow?
How many of you have made snow angels? A snowman? Had a snowball fight?
I can remember a long time ago when I lived in Chicago; one year, it snowed so much that we couldn’t go to school for a whole week. How many of you would like that?
One more question. What color is snow?
That’s right, it’s white. What do you think of when you think of something white?
(It’s clean, it pure, it perfect)
In the book of Isaiah, God says,
“Come now, let us settle the matter. “Says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18
Who has wool? That’s right, sheep. And the Bible says that Jesus is the Good Shepherd, and we are His sheep. But how can we be white as snow or wool if we are stained with sin?
(Because Jesus died on the cross for our sins and took them away from us and made us perfect and unstained in God’s eyes) That’s right; Jesus made us white as snow again.
Let’s Pray: Dear Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for us, taking our sins away, and making us white as snow again in your Father’s sight.
Do you think it will snow out here this year? (It may have already snowed in your area, so adjust your question accordingly.) I guess I’ll have to make some snow for you really quick (make snow or throw out prepared snow while you’re speaking) and say this to you, you are all white as snow in God’s sight (throw snow on the kids) Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Before you go back to your seats, here’s a snowball for each of you! Please don’t throw them; these snowballs are for eating!
(Hand out snowballs to the children as a reminder of the message)
