Need a simple science object lesson to introduce a lesson on salvation or forgiveness? Here you go!
Supplies: candle, matches or lighter, baking soda, vinegar, drinking glass
Light the candle. Pour two teaspoons of baking soda into the glass. Cover the baking soda with vinegar. As the baking soda and vinegar bubble, lift the glass and “pour” the broken bubbles over the candle. Do not pour out the liquid solution. The candle should go out.
Spiritual Connection: Forgiveness
Jesus died on the cross for our sins. He wants to get rid of the sin in our lives. When we ask for forgiveness, Jesus forgives us, blowing out the sin from our lives.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
