Online Sunday School Lessons - New Wine into New Wineskins

Another great addition to your online Sunday School lessons! Use this lesson to teach kids about how Jesus changes us.


Needed: Three large glasses, one small glass, tarps or towels

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students enough time to think about and to give their answers to the questions before clarifying the teaching.)

(Place tarps or towels around your demonstration area. Fill two of the large glasses with water. Pull out the small glass and say something like,)

We’re going to pretend that this is you.

(Now pull out one of the large glasses filled with water and say,)

And we’re going to pretend that this is all the great stuff Jesus wants to teach you.

(Pour the large glass of water into the small cup and let it overflow.)

What happened? Why did the water spill out?

Jesus said we can’t learn everything He wants to teach us unless we change.

(Pull out the large empty glass.)

We have to change our lives. That means to stop doing the wrong things we do and start doing the right things. It means to believe in Jesus and give Him our lives. Then we will be able to learn all the great things Jesus wants to teach us.

(Pull out the second large glass of water and pour it into the empty large glass.)

If we want to learn everything Jesus wants to teach us, we have to be ready to change our lives.

Prayer: Everyone close your eyes. I want you to think for a second to yourself and ask Jesus if there’s anything in your life He wants you to change…Ask Him if you’re doing anything bad that He wants you to stop doing… Ask Him if there’s anything good that He wants you to start doing.
