Do you know what Heavenis? Heaven is Gods home. Heavenis filled with the glory, the shiningbrightness of God. There is no nightthere The Bible says, God is TheLight and in Him is no Darkness atall(I John 1:5). The Bible tells usthat in Heaven, the street of thecity is pure, clear gold-like glass(Rev.21:21). God tells us manyother things about His home.www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 4. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comNo one is sick there. No one iscrippled or blind. No one ever dies.Every person in Heaven will beperfectly happy-always (Rev. 21:4-2Psalm 16:11). The most wonderfulthing about Heaven is that God theFather and His Son, the Lord Jesus willbe there. God made Heaven. Hemade you too. He loves you verymuch. Because he made you andloves you, He wants you to belong toHim and be with Him in Heavensomeday. Jesus promised long ago, Igo to prepare a place for you (John3:16; John 14:1-3). www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 5. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comBlack Jelly BeanThere is one thing that can neverbe in Heaven. That is sin. Becauseyou and I are sinners we want tohave our own way instead ofGods way. Wanting our own wayis sin. Doing, or saying, or thinkingbad things is sin. Sin is anythingthat displeases God. Sin hascaused sorrow and sadness in ourworld. God tells us in the Biblethat all have sinned (Romans3:23). All means every one of us.www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 6. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comThis dark jelly bean reminds us ofour sinful way (Proverbs 4:19).When it is dark, you stumble andcannot find your way. Because ofyour sin, you cannot find God. Yoursin separates you from God, who isholy (I John 1:5). God cannot allowsin where He is. I am sure you canthink of a sin which you have done.God has said that sin must bepunished. The punishment for yoursin is death-to be separated fromGod forever (Rev. 6:23). The LordJesus, Gods Son, said that if you diein your sin, you cannot go to www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 7. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comHeaven where He is (John 8:21,24). God knew there was nothingyou could do to get rid of your sin.He knew you could not be goodenough to please Him. But Heloves you and He made a way foryou to be forgiven.www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 8. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comRed Jelly BeanThe red jelly bean shows the wayGod made for you to have yoursins forgiven-taken away. Godloves you. He sent His own Son,the Lord Jesus Christ, from Heavento take the punishment for yoursin (John 3:16). Wicked men nailedthe sinless Son of God to the cross,but while He hung there God putall of your sins on Him. The Biblesays, God bath laid on Him*Jesus+ the iniquity of us all(Isaiah 53:6). (Iniquity is anotherword for sin).www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 9. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comAll your bad temper, all your lies,your meaness-all your sin-waslaid on the dear Son of God, andHe suffered and suffered until Hecried out with a loud voice andsaid, It is finished. When youfinish a job, how much is left?Nothing. What did the Lord Jesuscome to do? He came to save usfrom punishment for sin, didntHe? And He finished the work.When He was nailed to the cross,what came from His hands, andHis feet? His blood.www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 10. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comGod calls it the precious blood of JesusChrist, and He says the blood ofJesus Christ, Gods Son, cleanseth usfrom all sin (I John 1:7). There is noother way, for God says, Withoutshedding of blood there is noremission *of sin+-no forgiveness, nopayment (Hebrews 9:22). Jesus notonly died for you, but He was buried,and He rose again. He is a livingsaviour (ICorinthians 15:3, 4). Godshowed His love for you by sending Hisown Son to die for you. Now he saysthere is one way for you to be savedfrom your sin. www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 11. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comWhite Jelly BeanTears cannot wash away sin. Prayerscannot wash away sin. Doing goodcannot wash away sin. But the bloodof the Lord Jesus can wash away allsin (Psalm 51:7; I John 1:7). Thiswhite jelly bean reminds me thatyou can be made clean from sin. DidJesus die for everyone? (YES!) Iseveryone going to Heaven? (No,because some do not believe thatJesus died for them. They have notreceived Him as their saviour fromsin.) Gods word says, as many asreceived Him to them gave Hepower to become the sons of God,even to them that believe on HisName (John 1:12).www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 12. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comGod has promised you when youreceive the Lord Jesus as yourSaviour, you become a child of God.The Lord Jesus Christ died to saveyou from your sins. He wants to livein your heart and give you power toobey God. Are you sorry for your sin?Do you believe Jesus died for yoursin? Would you like to receive Jesustoday? You must decide. (Ask theHoly Spirit for discernment. Questionthe person to respond carefully.Encourage them to express to youbefore they pray: why they need toreceive the Lord Jesus; what the LordJesus has done for them; what theywant to tell God. www.CreativeEasterIdeas.com 13. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comWhen dealing with a group,emphasize what each person mustpersonally believe and receive theLord Jesus. Give opportunity forprayer. If possible, question eachperson individually after the prayerto clarify the meaning of Hisdecision. Where is Jesus now?Where are your sins? What tookthem away?) (Any one of thefollowing verses can be usedeffectively in helping to know whatGod has done: John 1:12; I John5:13; Rev. 3:20.) God promises toyou when you receive Him, I willneverleave nor forsake you(Hebrews 13:5).
