ACTIVITY: Guess Who Was Saved by the Savior (Forgiveness Scripture Stories) POST-AND-PRESENT
YOUTH can teach this lesson to children.
Objective: Help children learn many stories of those who were blessed by the Atonement. Because Jesus suffered for us in the Garden of Gethsemane and died for us, we will be saved like these people.
TO MAKE VISUALS: Print, color, and cut out the images that follow. Use tape or magnets to mount the visuals. Mount the stories on the backs of the faces.
1. Tell children/youth that Jesus is a life saver just like someone who would save our life today, like a policeman, a doctor, or a lifeguard. Only Jesus saves us from sin and death. He suffered and died for us so we can repent if we do wrong and make our life different. We can choose the right and find peace and happiness. Jesus saved us from sin so we can return to live again with Him and with Heavenly Father. If we repent and keep His commandments, we can feel safe and happy.
2. Have children/youth take turns choosing a face, with the story found on the back, to read about that someone who was saved by Jesus. At the end of the story, say, “Guess who was saved by the Savior?” and then have children/youth guess who it was. The ones reading the stories can listen to the others’ guesses. When the right one is said, they can post the picture on the board. Or they can tell who it was if the name was not guessed.
TESTIMONY SHARING: SEE *QUESTION BELOW
THOUGHT TREAT: “Life Savior” LIFESAVERS CANDIES or DOUGHNUTS. Place a note on a package of Lifesavers candies or attach a note on a toothpick on a doughnut that reads, “Jesus is my Life-Savior.” Tell children/youth about the Savior’s suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and how He suffered for all mankind. And if we repent, we will feel the SWEETNESS of His spirit and His love. As we study the gospel and choose the right, we will gain a SWEET testimony of His gospel. If we continue to repent each day, we will be ready to feel the SWEET spirit that comes when we partake of His sacrament each week to remember Him and covenant to follow Him.
