On scraps of paper, write down some messages that Isaiah had to deliver. Put these messages in a basket and have each child draw one message. Once they get a message, they read it aloud.
Would you like to deliver that message? Why ?
Do you know people who call themselves believers in Jesus and who are two faced, who are hypocrites? This is perhaps the best way to describe the nation of Israel. There is an expression that says a two-sided face, one could also say that of Israel.
Israel had an appearance of righteousness, but it was only a facade.
Isaiah encourages Israel to obey God with all their heart, not just in a ritual way. Isaiah’s desire was that those who hear and read his words would be convinced that they must turn away from their wickedness and turn to God in order to receive his forgiveness and healing.
Isaiah also announced the birth of Jesus.
What kind of messages do you like to receive?
What kind of messages do you like to say?
Write a message about the love of Jesus and think about who you could give it to.
Thank you, God, because you loved me so much that you sent Jesus to save me and heal me. Help me deliver this message of love around me.
