I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is my Savior
CSMP-booklet 2009, April week 2
Display on the chalkboard GAK 240 and a picture of a child.
Read John 3:16 and help the children understand that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each one of us and want us to live with Them again someday.
Explain that because we make mistakes, such as telling a lie or being unkind, we
create a gulf between ourselves and Jesus.
Draw a gulf between the picture of the child and the picture of the Savior.
Use GAK 227 and GAK 230 to give a simple explanation of the Atonement.
Draw a bridge over the gulf and explain that the Savior's Atonement is like a bridge that makes it possible for us to repent and return to Heavenly Father and Jesus.
Sing or recite, "The Third Article of Faith" (CS, 123), and testify of the blessings of the Atonement.
