Theme: Nothing can take us out of the Jesus' hand.
Object: A yo-yo
Scripture: I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28
Do any of you have a yo-yo? Do you know how to do any tricks with
your yo-yo? I brought my yo-yo this morning. I thought I
would give a little demonstration. I'm not really
very good, but I can do a few simple tricks.
Did you notice that every one of my tricks started and ended
exactly the same way? Each trick began and ended with the
yo-yo in the palm of my hand. Jesus said, "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them
out of my hand."
When we give our heart to Jesus and place our life in his hands, we know that we are safe and that
nothing can snatch us from his hand. Oh, we may have our "ups and
downs." We may even stray
away at times, but just a little tug will pull us right back into His
hand. Even when we really mess up, like I did on the
"around the world" trick, he picks us up and dusts us off and there
we are, right back in the palm of his hand.
Dear Jesus, we thank you for holding us in your hand and for giving us the promise that nothing can take us from your hands.
