Hebrews 11:1 – A God We Cannot See

Children’s Sermon Hebrews 11:1 – A God We Can’t  See



Objective: To encourage children in their faith in God, even when we can’t see Him.

Scripture: 

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see.”

Materials: A pinwheel (test beforehand, to make sure it spins when blowing on it.)

Story Outline:

Good morning, kids! I’m so glad to see you today!

Now, I want all of you to gather round closely, so you can all see my face. Can you all see? Great. Now watch my mouth, because I want to ask you something. Ready?

(Make a circle with your lips, but do not blow any air.)

Did you see what I did? Now, I want to ask you, was I blowing air, or just making a circle with my mouth? (The children will not know for sure, but allow them to guess.)

Hmm, it seems like you don’t all agree. Let me do it again(Make a circle with your lips, and blow air softly.)

What about that time? What do you think? (Let them shout out their guess.)

That time, I was blowing air! Let’s try it one more time. (Make a circle with your lips, but do not blow air.)

What do you think this time? That time, I was just making a circle with my lips! It’s very hard to tell, isn’t it?

Well, maybe I have something that will help. (Take out pinwheel.)

Do you know what this is? This is called a pinwheel. Now, I’m going to hold this pinwheel in front of my mouth. Now, boys and girls, tell me. Am I just making a circle with my mouth, or am I blowing air?

(Blow air gently on the pinwheel, causing it to spin. The children will all shout that you are, in fact, blowing!)

That’s right! How did you know that I was blowing air? Could you see the air? No, you couldn’t see the air. But you could see what the air was doing.

This reminds me of what faith in God is like.

God is like the wind. We can’t see him, but if we look around, we can always see what he is doing.

The Bible tells us that faith is being “certain of what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1). This week, even though we won’t be able to see God, let’s pay attention and to what he is doing all around us.

Prayer:

Dear God, Please let me remember that our lesson “A God We Can’t See” teaches me that a loving God is all around me.
