Bible Crafts for Sunday School on Matthew 16:21-28

Bible Crafts for Sunday School on Matthew 16:21-28

In this video, we will go through three craft ideas related to Matthew 16, the passage which includes Jesus describing the cost of discipleship. The Christian life is not always easy or comfortable, but it's worth any sacrifice needed. Jesus already paid the ultimate price, and we benefit from that! These crafts take after an Olympic Games theme, emphasizing Christ as the true "medal" and crown.

In this Gospel lesson, we focus on the importance of committing to follow Jesus. It may be tough at times and require sacrifice, but ultimately it is not a burden, but something that brings great joy and hope. Drawing on a sports theme, these crafts remind children of the great reward that is ours in Heaven. Offered here are instructions for making a “medal of honor”, a “crown of glory”, and a cross decoration with a fun scratch-off element. Feel free to alter and embellish as needed, and always be sure to remind students of the significance behind items they are making.
Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider…
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
-Matthew 6:19-21
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. -1 Corinthians 9:24-25
Jesus is the true treasure!
A crown that lasts…the sacrifice of Christ
A medal of greater reward…life with Jesus!
