The Red Page: Work of Jesus Christ

Key Points

Because God loves you so much, He made a way to take care of your sin. That’s what this red page reminds me of.

God sent His only Son, the Lord Jesus, to Earth as a baby.

Jesus is God the Son. He never sinned as he grew up. Jesus is 100% perfect.

When He was a man, Jesus died on a cross, giving His blood. He was punished for your sin. Read 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “[Jesus] Christ (Put a finger into alternate palms to show nail holes) died (make a cross with your first fingers) for our sins (make fists) in accordance with the scriptures (hold hands together with palms facing up like a book.) And that he was buried (turn hands over and down) and that he rose again (move hands and arms apart and up in the air) the third day (hold up three fingers) in accordance with the scriptures” (make book with hands again) 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

(Including the motions will help the child understand the various parts of what Christ did more clearly. You may want to go through the verse again, having the child participate in doing the motions.)

God brought Jesus back to life here on Earth. Now He rules in Heaven.
