- a coin
To show that ordinances and covenants are inseparable, display a coin. Then ask which side of the coin is more important. (Neither side is more important.)
Ask learners if they can separate the sides of the coin. Then explain that ordinances and covenants are inseparable, just as the two sides of a coin are inseparable.
Also point out that ordinances and covenants are necessary for admission into God's presence, just as coins are sometimes needed for admission to events.
