Salvation Gospel Illusion

Reposted from an earlier post.

This is a great object lesson to use for Easter or for a salvation message.

Items Needed: 2 glasses, red food coloring, dissolvo paper (Dissolvo paper is available on the Internet of in magic shops. It dissolves when it comes in contact with water.)

Preparation: Fill one glass with water. Put 2 to 3 drops of food coloring in the bottom of the second glass.

I put what you’ll say to the children in italics.

Hold up the dissolvo paper. I want a very brave volunteer. Pick an older child or a worker. Say to the volunteer, write on this paper the worst sin you’ve ever committed. Don’t worry. Nobody’s going to look at it. While the volunteer is writing, tease him by saying things like Having trouble thinking of just one? Only one sin. We haven’t got all day.

Fold the paper in two and place it in the second glass. Hold the glasses up making sure to cover the food coloring with your hand. Pour the water into the second glass. Then pour it back and forth a few times. Tell the volunteer to dish the paper out of the water. Of course it’s gone. Talk about who when we accept Jesus as our savior, He removes our sin as far as the east is from the west, as if it never happened.
