Jesus and Jonah
Play hide-and-seek for a few minutes, allowing your kids to hide every time. After repeatedly finding your kids' hiding spots, ask them if they think they could find a hiding spot where you could never find them. Now explain that Jonah tried to hide from God because he didn't want to obey His command.
Point out how Jesus illustrates His death and resurrection using the story of Jonah. Tell your children that Jonah eventually obeyed God, and those who believed Jonah's message were saved. So, too, all who believe in the Gospel message will be saved.
