Colossians 3:13 (NIV)
Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Hello, children of God! Do you see what I have here? What is this? (Hold up a glass or bottle of water.) That’s right, this is water! Now, what does water do? What can we do with water? (Encourage the children to come up with a variety of water uses, such as drinking, swimming, cooking, and bathing.)
So, water is powerful and important stuff. And did you know that your body is made up largely of water? That’s why it is essential that you drink it and stay hydrated. But water also makes me think of baptism. Do you know what baptism is?
Baptism helps us remember that God has saved us and washed our sins away! Some people do baptism in different ways… some sprinkle water onto people (feel free to demonstrate with a small toy and your water); some people dip into the water; some baptize people when they are babies; some when they are older…there are a lot of ways to do it. But it is a wonderful and important thing to be baptized because it shows us that we are new in Christ!
