Jesus Has the Power to Change Things

by | All Youth, Children's Sermons

Before your group comes together, sprinkle some powdered juice mix on the bottom of a clear glass. It should be enough to be able to change the color of water, but not so much where the children can notice it. Set up two glasses in front of the children. This should be a few feet in front of them and at eye-level. A school desk is good. Have two unopened water bottles also set up. Read the scripture where Jesus turns the water into wine. While discussing the miracle, also talk about the power that Jesus has to transform things. For example, an ugly heart into a beautiful one, a nasty mouth into a clean one, etc. While talking, pour water into the “unsprinkled” glass. Continue to emphasize the phrase “Jesus has the Power to transform things” so that what seems ordinary, isn’t always. At this point, pour the second water bottle into the “sprinkled” glass. Listen to all the Oh’s and Ahh’s as the regular water turns into “wine”. The little ones especially loved this. I walked around with the water bottle in my hand, and this kept them guessing as to what I was going to do with it. 2 Corinthians 5:17 was the verse I used to help them understand and apply Jesus’ transforming power in our lives!
