Teaching Goal: Even though we cannot see God, He is there and He is powerful!

Scripture: John 6:46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God {Jesus}.

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

A. ACTIVITY: With the children standing around you, hold the empty balloon in your hands. I’m going to count to “three” and then let this balloon go. Watch out so that it doesn’t hit you! One, two, three! Let the balloon go and it will fall to the ground. That didn’t work right! How come the balloon didn’t fly around the room like I wanted it to? Listen to their answers. You didn’t put air in it.

Okay, let’s try it again and this time I’ll put air in the balloon. Blow up the balloon. Count to three and let it go. The balloon will fly around the room. What made the balloon fly around? Air. Can you see the air? No.

When you look at a tree and see the leaves moving, what makes the leaves move? Wind. Can you see the wind? No.

It’s the same way with God. The book of John tells us that no person has ever seen God. And the book of Romans says that even though God’s qualities may be invisible we can still see his power in creation around us. We can see God working in our lives, the lives of others and creation all around us. “Just like air, God is there.”

  1. Memorize: Just like air, God is there.

  2. Close in Prayer

Just like air, God is there.
