(CHILD 1 holds up green card.)

C 1   God created all things.
.     God created the universe,
.     the planets, the moons and the stars.
.     God created the earth,
.     the animals, the birds and the fish.
.     God created the beauty around us,
.     the flowers, the grass and the trees.
.     And God created us.
.     God created us so He could share His love.
.     God created a perfect place for us to live.
.     And God created us with freedom to choose.

(CHILD 2 holds up black card.)

C 2   But Adam and Eve chose to sin.
.     Adam and Eve brought sin into the perfect world.
.     God still loves us, but
.     God is holy and cannot live with sin.
.     This means that if our sins are not forgiven,
.     we cannot go to heaven to live with God.
.     Sin brought spiritual death to the world.
.     Because of this, we are all born into sin.

(CHILD 3 holds up red card.)

C 3   But - God still wants to share His love.
.     God loves us so much that He sent His Son
.     to die for us – in our place.
.     Jesus died for all our sins.
.     The blood of Jesus, when He died on the cross,
.     paid the price for all our sins.
.     Because of this we can ask God
.     to forgive all our sins.
.                                                       2
(CHILD 4 holds up white card.)

C 4   We still have freedom to choose.
.     It is never too late, and we are never too sinful.
.     We can choose to follow God
.     and believe in Him.
.     When we ask God to forgive us,
.     God will forgive us all our sins.
.     In God’s eyes, all our sins are washed away.
.     We become children of God – forever.

(CHILD 5 holds up yellow card.)

C 5   Being children of God,
.     means that we have a heavenly Father
.     who will guide and help us
.     while we are living here on earth.
.     And we know that someday,
.     we will go to live with God in heaven.
.     Forever, we will live
.     in a perfect place with God.
