Pass the Apple

June 15th, 2011 by admin

This game is similar to the game Hot Potato.  Have the children sit in a circle.  Use 3 apples to pass around.  Sing the song I’ve God the Love of Jesus (fruit version).  When the song stops whoever has the apples shouts out “God is Love!”

Then show the children a rotten apple, “Who wants to eat this?” – offer it if anyone says yes :P  Then show a good fruit.  Have the children practice saying, “I want the good fruit!”  Play Pass the Apple again and the children who have the apple at the end of the song say, “I want the good fruit!”

In the Bible Jesus said, “By their fruit you will know them.”  So if you make good fruit you belong to Jesus.  When Jesus was talking about good fruit and bad fruit he wasn’t talking about apples he was talking about how you act.  What do you think he meant by good fruit?  How would you act if you were making the good fruit? (Love!)

“Love is the good fruit!”  Have children practice shouting this.  Play Pass the Apple again and the children who have the apple at the end of the song say, “Love is the good fruit!”

We can’t make the good fruit without God’s love.  How do we get God’s love inside of us so that we will make the good fruit?  (Ask Jesus into your heart!)

Give an opportunity either now or later for children to ask Jesus into their heart if they have never done so and they would like to do that.
