1 Memory Verse- Living Water Lesson 3 John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Lesson Theme: Jesus is the giver of living water. Learning Objectives: Jesus loves each one of us. Jesus knows all about us. Jesus is called the Messiah. A relationship with Jesus gives us eternal life. Ask the children where they get their water to drink. Do they help to get the water? When do they collect the water? Do they drink the water from the water source? BIBLE STORY Ÿ Explain that you will tell them a true story from the Bible, God s word. Tell them this is about a woman who goes to a well to get water. It is best to tell the story once with enthusiasm (try not to read it), and then tell the story a second time. During the second telling of the story, you could have leaders help act out the parts. One of the team members needs to be the women at the well. Woman at the Well

2 (Taken from John 4, New Living Translation) Jesus and his disciples were traveling together. They came to a well in Samaria. Jesus was tired. He sat by the well while his disciples went to buy food. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, Please give me a drink. The woman was surprised because Jews often refused to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink? Jesus replied, If you only knew the gift God has for you and who I am; you would ask me and I would give you living water. The women said, But sir, you don t have a rope or a bucket. This is a very deep well. Where would you get this living water? Jesus replied, People soon become thirsty again after drinking this water. But the water I give them takes away their thirst. It gives them eternal life. Jesus told her the poor choices she had made in her past. The woman says to Jesus, You must be a prophet. How else would you know these things about me? I know the Messiah will come the one who is called Christ. When he comes, he will explain everything to us. Then Jesus told her, I am the Messiah. The woman became so excited she left her water jar beside the well. Then

3 she understood and believed Jesus. She rushed into the village to tell others. So the people went to see Jesus the Messiah, the Giver of Living Water. Questions to see how much they understand Who came to the well while Jesus was sitting there? (The Samaritan woman) What does Jesus asks for? (A drink of water) The woman was surprised that Jesus talked to her. Why was she surprised? (She was a Samaritan and a woman.) Jesus tells the woman that He is the. (Messiah) Savior/King Jesus tells the woman that He can give her the Living Water. What did He mean? (Jesus meant that a relationship with Him would give her eternal life.) These questions could be written on a water drop and placed in the small bucket. Children could draw questions from the bucket and see if they can answer them. Object Lesson 1: "One Sin" LESSON: Object Lesson to enforce Lesson One sin separates us from God. Salvation from Jesus brings us to God. SUMMARY: HomeLessons 1-6Lessons 7-12

4 Heating a balloon with a candle pops an empty balloon, just as one sin hurts our connection to God. But a balloon filled with water will not pop, even when put directly into a candle flame. The protection conferred from the living water is similar to protection from salvation; both priceless yet free, both available to everyone, and both necessary for life, physical or eternal1. QUESTIONS: What is perfection? What is sin? What is salvation? VERSES: Righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24 God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John 7:38 MATERIALS: Light colored latex balloons, 8-9 (4 total) Candle Lighter or matches Damp washcloth Fire extinguisher (for safety) PREPARATION: Inflate three balloons with air and tie closed. Fill the last balloon with water and tie closed. Put the three balloons filled with air on the display table in front of the audience. Put the balloon filled with water behind the table and out of sight. Light the candle to get the wick started (if a new candle), then extinguish and put in center of table. Dampen the washcloth and keep it handy. Keep the fire extinguisher out of sight but close to the table in the event of an accident. PRESENTATION: Intro and definition of perfect Today, I want to show you a really great experiment that will help you understand why God is so great. 3. But, first I need your help. 4. Can you help me? Wait for a response. 5. Great! 6. Can you tell me what it means to be PERFECT? Wait for a response. 7. Do you know anyone who is perfect? Wait for a response. 8. Yes, only God is perfect. Definition of sin 9. Can anyone tell me what sin is? 10. What is SIN? Wait for a response.

5 11. What happens to us when we commit sins? Wait for a response. 12. We are not perfect anymore, are we? 13. Only God is perfect. 14. If we want to be with him someday in heaven we had better be perfect too. 15. That means no sin at all. Candle or lighter and balloon 16. Now, let s says that this candle represents sin. Show the candle to the audience and light it with the lighter or matches. Use caution with an open flame! 17. And let s say that this balloon represents our connection with God. Show the first air-filled balloon. 18. If the balloon breaks, so does our connection with God. Air balloon demonstration 19. All it takes, though, is one little mistake. 20. ONE little sin and we lose of connection to God. 21. Can someone name a sin? Choose someone to name a sin. As the child names a sin put the first air-filled balloon in the flame. POP!!! 22. Can someone else name a sin? As the second child names the sin put the second air-filled balloon in the flame. POP!!! 23. Can someone else name a sin? 24. As the third child names the sin put the third air-filled balloon in the flame. POP!!! 25. So it looks like committing any sin is just like putting this balloon a little too close to the fire. 26. We are not perfect anymore. 27. We cannot be with God anymore. No man can fix 28. Hand the first broken balloon to a child and ask. Can you fix my balloon? 29. Hand the second broken balloon to a child and ask. Can you? 30. Hand the third broken balloon to a child and ask. Can you? 31. No one can fix my balloon! 32. So that must mean the connection to God is damaged beyond OUR repair. Set the balloons aside. No more sin 33. So, I have an idea. 34. Let s not sin anymore. 35. That should work. 36. Right? 37. Well, unfortunately every one of us has already sinned. 38. For God says in Romans 3:23 all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God 39. Looks like we are just like those popped balloons. 40. We cannot be with God because we are not perfect. Good news 41. But, I have good news! 42. Does anybody know what salvation is? 43. What is SALVATION? Wait for a response. 44. How do we get it? Wait for a response. 45. Yes, Jesus. 46. Jesus died so all our sins would be forgiven, so we could be perfect again, so we could be with God. 47. Can anyone tell me what the bible says in John 3:16? Wait for a response.

6 48. It says that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 49. Well, what does that mean? Wait for a response. 50. It means whoever believes in Jesus is protected. Show water balloon 51. Well, here is another balloon, another person with a connection to God. 52. This time, though, this person accepted Jesus. 53. He is filled with salvation, filled with water. Show the water-filled balloon. 54. Why water? 55. Well, the bible says in John 7:38 that whoever believes in (Jesus)... streams of living water will flow from within him." Water is salvation 56. So how is the living water in this balloon like salvation? 57. Well, you see, both water and salvation are priceless yet free. 58. It is worth more than all the gold in the entire world, but it does not cost a penny. 59. Both water and salvation are available to everyone. 60. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, black or white, old or young. 61. Both water and salvation are necessary for life, physical or eternal. 62. Just as we will surely die of thirst if we do not drink water, surely will be not have eternal life with God without salvation. Water balloon demonstration 63. Now what do you think will happen when a person who has accepted Jesus and is full of the living water encounters sin, when he is put into the fire? Wait for a response. 64. Are you sure? Show a fearful look on you face like you expect the balloon to burst spilling water everywhere (maybe even have a towel handy) as hold the water-filled balloon directly over the flame, and then show joy when it does not pop. HINT: It actually is more dramatic to keep the balloon 1-2 inches from the flame for the first 10 seconds. Then put the balloon into the flame, so it wraps around it. 65. WOW, the balloon did not pop!!! 66. Even more, the balloon is unchanged. Use the damp washcloth to wash off the black soot revealing an unblemished balloon. 67. This must mean that as long as you are filled with salvation you are no longer destroyed by sin. 68. The heat of the fire is not felt by the balloon because the water takes it all away, just as Jesus takes the burden of sin away from you. Jesus repairs 69. So if you accept Jesus you are protected from future sins. 70. But what if your balloon is already popped? 71. Remember, all of us are already broken balloons. 72. We are all sinners. 73. The good news is that if you accept Jesus salvation, all your past sins will be forgiven as well. 74. That means Jesus will repair your connection to God that is already damaged. 75. He will repair and fill your broken balloon and make them perfect again. Show them the popped airfilled balloon as well as the water balloon. 76. Even I cannot fix that!!! Wrap-up 77. So, what have we learned today? 78. Well, what was the balloon filled with air? Wait for a response.

7 79. Yes, it was our connection to God. 80. What happened to it when it encountered sin, when it got too close to the candle? Wait for a response. 81. Yes, it popped. 82. What about the balloon filled with water? 83. Did it pop when it was put over the candle? Wait for a response. 84. Why not? 85. What was so special about the water? Wait for a response. 86. Remember the living water? 87. The living water was salvation or protection through Jesus. 88. Well, what do we do if we have already sinned? 89. Can we be fixed? Wait for a response. 90. Yes, Jesus can fix our balloons, repair our connection with God. 91. How do we get him to fix it? Wait for a response. 92. Yes, we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. 93. Very good.
