Gerry, and Pastor
Bat, Ball, a bunch of candy!
morning Pastor Craig!
morning Gerry! Iím so glad to see you today here in Sunday School!
glad to be here!
did you bring today?
just some candy!
Hmmmmm mmmmm! Are you going to eat
Right here and now! Yessiree! I canít wait to taste this delicious soft candy!
a minute Gerry! Didnít your doctor say no more candy due to your stomach
problems? Are you sure that you want to eat that candy?
I sure am! I donít care what my doctor says! I can do anything that I want!
at the audience) Is that right everybody? Can Gerry do anything he wants?
for good reponse)
what I thought.
are you still going to eat all that candy Gerry?
not! Well, why not?
changed my mind! I decided that I had better obey the doctor - he knows best!
you know something Gerry? That is exactly what repentance
is like: changing your mind. Deciding to quite rebelling and only doing what YOU
wanted to do, and doing instead what God wants you to do! A complete change of
mind. Let me demonstrate with this ball here!
(Demonstrate the ball going one way, and then when hit, it going the
exact opposite way)
Thatís repentance - from sin (disobedience, rebellion, stealing) to God
and asking his forgiveness!
out the candy to audience who sat still during the lesson!
