As we continue our study of Isaiah, try these Sunday school crafts with your younger children.
While Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel often spoke of the doom approaching the ancient nation of Israel, they spoke of God’s rich promises for those that love Him.
Sunday School Crafts: “Jesus Brings The Light”
(Teacher words in bold.)
Isaiah spoke some of the greatest prophecies of the Bible concerning joy for those who love God. In spite of our hard times, a better way has come (Jesus) and a better world will return with Him when he comes again. We should look forward every day to being a part of that.
The prophet Isaiah spoke of the happy ending to our story on earth, which we Christians believe will happen when Jesus returns. He brought light in the darkness when he lived on earth. Then he was killed, came up from the grave, and went on up to heaven in a cloud in front of the disciples. He said the next time he came it would be in a cloud, only this time He’d be known by everyone.
We’re going to make a picture of both parts of the story.
Give each child a sheet of construction paper with a line marked down the center. On one side have them write JESUS CAME WITH THE LIGHT. One the other side, JESUS WILL LIGHT THE WORLD.
Give the children a template of a candle and flame and one of a light bulb to trace on their paper. They can color in the flame and the bulb, cut them out, and put them in the right spots. Provide orange and red markers to make “glow lines” coming from each light.
