Post your lesson ideas in this topic for Romans 8:35-39


35 Who can separate us from Christ’s love?

Can trouble or hard times or harm or hunger? Can nakedness or danger or war?


36 It is written,

“Because of you, we face death all day long.
We are considered as sheep to be killed.” (Psalm 44:22)

37 No! In all these things we are more than winners!
We owe it all to Christ, who has loved us.


38 I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love. Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us.


39 Not even the highest places or the lowest, or anything else in all creation can separate us. Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.




Original Post

A great Art Project that's also a demonstration:  

Pounding nails so nothing can separate

To prepare:  

View this fellow's YouTube video illustration of two boards nailed together which cannot be separated.  It's a children's sermon he did (if the link doesn't work, search YouTube for Kids sermon - Nothing can separate us from the love of God.)  

Then give your kids two 2x4 pieces of wood and two old fashioned square nails approx 1.5" long.  

Have them write their name on one piece of wood, and Jesus' name on the other.

Have them nail their two pieces together just like you see in the video.

Then have them write the verse on the back of the wood to go home.

If kids need some help, you can pre-drill the hole in the top board which will help hold the nail as they pound it into the second board.

Comment on the use of "nails" to bind us with Christ and ask the kids what the nails represent (his sacrifice/forgiveness).
