Celebrating Freedom in Christ

-Celebrating Freedom in Christ!

Our children need to hear a clear and concise message of how God’s love will free them from sin.

Independence Day and other holidays which celebrate freedom are excellent opportunities to present the life-freeing message of God’s love and salvation!  This short email is just a note to bring your attention to a collection of lessons and games that are specifically designed for this purpose.

In the Independence / Freedom Day category of CMT’s site, you will discover the following lessons listed below.

Freedom Jeopardy is an exceptionally fun twist on the classic Jeopardy game that powerfully presents the entire Message of Salvation in an unforgettable way!

Yes, you can do this with or without PowerPoint, but if you have projection capability, you will definitely want to use it.

Almost NO preparation needed!

The game board is divided into four categories which cover:
-the Problem (slavery to sin)
-the Beginning (how sin entered the world)
-the Answer (God’s Great Plan of Salvation through Christ)
-the Action (what we must do to be set FREE from sin)

Covenant of Freedom is specifically designed to be extremely easy-to-do with minimal preparation.  You will only need to gather 5 or 6 items for the entire lesson!

– Great crowdbreaker game titled Bungee Cord Bondage
– Two PowerPoint games in the lesson (Rebus Scripture Picture Puzzle verse and a 10 question review game.)
– The main points are:
God Provides a Covenant of Freedom
Our Freedom Comes with a Purpose
Seven Ways Scripture Teaches to Continue in this Life of Freedom
– You will also explore Romans 8:3 through an incredible Gospel magic rope escape that can be presented effectively in a classroom or in front of 1,000s with basically no practice! “For what the law was powerless to do…, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.”

The ‘Set Free’ Gospel magic trick has an incredibly Powerful Message that leads into the perfect opportunity for you to give a salvation invitation! No Force! No Sleight of Hand! Free choice by your volunteers! Works every time! You simply show two sets of four letter cards which spell the word ´FREE´. After dividing them into two separate stacks, your volunteer randomly moves cards from the top of a stack to the bottom. When finished, the top card of each stack is paired and set to the side. You continue randomly pairing the cards as you present the message. Your last main point is Luke 4:18, Jesus says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, to preach…to heal… and to…set the captives free!” Turning the pairs over, you reveal four perfect matches!  This easy-to-do and quick-to-learn effect works 100% of the time!

This Great Escape Illusion is an all-time favorite classic effect that has been performed throughout the world where you quickly and easily escape from being tied to a chair by any number of volunteers. But this presentation also includes a powerful message of how God made a covenant with man to free him from the bondage of sin. Romans 8:3 says, “For what the law was powerless to do…, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.”  He removed sin’s bondage over us.
