The ‘Tell the World’ Object Lesson Printables (letter sized: 8.5 x 11) are intended to help you discuss or demonstrate to your children the need for going on mission and spreading the gospel. You can hold up each of the printables when you are speaking about them individually, or ask a child to hold them up for you.
The printables can be used in any discussion or object lesson concerning the Great Commission or Evangelism and how Jesus sent the disciples out, or how Paul travelled to tell others about Jesus.
The World: Jesus wants us to reach the world for him. He has sent us out into the world to tell others about him, to teach them and baptize them in his name. (Mark 16:15, Matt 28:16-20)
Passport: A passport helps us to travel and to get into different places and countries. Without a passport we would not be allowed in to different countries. We all need a way to share Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the one who will help us, lead us and guide us. He is our way in to different places and our help when we want to share the good news about Jesus. Unlike a passport, the Holy Spirit is a person who is able to speak to us and be our friend. We can hear him when he asks us to do things or to stop doing certain things also. (Romans 8:14, Isaiah 30:21, John 16:13)
Sunglasses: Sunglasses help us to see things differently. When we share Jesus with other people we need to see differently too. We need eyes that see with faith. Sometimes what we see looks like things are going to be impossible. It might seem like a person will never become a Christian. However, eyes of faith believe that Jesus can and will save. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
Camera: Cameras take photos which help us to remember what we have seen. Sometimes it is easy to forget all the good things that God has done. When we tell others about Jesus we want to remember how good our God is, we also want to help others to see how good Jesus is too so that they will make memories with him! (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
Map: A map shows us the way to go. Just like a map, the bible shows us what to do. The bible is our guide to life and our guide on how to share the good news. We can’t reach the world without first knowing what the bible says about Jesus, people and ourselves. (Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
