Lamb of God
Make handprint lambs with your kids. Trace each child’s hand on construction paper, and cut out the shape. The fingers become the legs, and the thumb is the lamb’s head. Glue cotton balls on the body, and color the legs and head. Older kids can write a list of what obedience means in their lives, such as “doing what my parent say” or “doing chores with a good attitude.”
In Old Testament times when people sinned, God accepted a perfect lamb as a sacrifice for their sins. God sent Jesus to be our lamb. People saw lambs as innocent and gentle. Jesus, though He is powerful, chose to be gentle and offer himself as sacrifice for our sins. He died so we can be forgiven. God no longer requires the blood of lambs. Jesus’ sacrifice covers all sin.
