Last week, I was thinking of a way to illustrate the power of one kid telling another about Jesus. This Bible object lesson with dominoes is what I came up with. The basic idea is told in the video below. This would be perfect for a children’s sermon on the Great Commission.
Supplies Needed: I got a simple box of dominoes at Wal-Mart for under $3. I also used masking tape and a marker to make a face on one of the dominoes.
Scripture Connection: With this object lesson you could read any of the key passages about Evangelism and Witnessing. Especially the Great Commission. Here are a few of my favorites:
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 ESV)
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 ESV)
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8 ESV)
But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 1:7-8 ESV)
The kids had so much fun with this children’s sermon -- they kept asking for me to repeat it weeks later.
