HIDING
THE GOSPEL
Bible Lesson:
  • Jesus wants you to share His love with others.
  • The good news of the gospel (how much Jesus loves you) must be shared to keep it alive in your life.
Supplies:
  • Votive candle (one that is short and fat)
  • Matches
  • Large, clear drinking glass
  • Shallow bowl
  • Colored water (made with a few drops of food coloring)

Matches are dangerous.
Parents, please supervise this experiment.
 
Directions:
  1. Put a small amount of colored water into the shallow bowl.

  2. Put the candle in the shallow bowl and light it.

  3. Put a large glass over the lighted candle and down into the water and notice what happens.

  4. The lighted candle with burn for a few seconds, heating the air inside the glass and making it expand, forcing large air bubbles to escape from the bottom of the glass.

  5. The candle will go out, causing the air to cool and shrink (contract), pulling water back up into the glass.

    Just like the candle will burn as long as it is in the open, so will God’s love burn in your life if you don’t try to cover it. If you try to hide Jesus’ love or keep it a secret it will go out. The gospel (the good news about how much Jesus loves us) must be shared with others to keep it growing in your own life.
