Simple Savior Lesson

Tell the following story and invite the children to stand and act it out with you:

“A man was walking along a road (walk in place).

He fell into a deep hole (sit down).

He tried and tried but could not get out (pretend to try to get out).

He called for help (quietly call for help).

Another man was walking on the same road. He heard the man cry for help (quietly cry for help again).

He lowered a ladder down into the hole. The man climbed the ladder out of the hole (pretend to climb up a ladder).

The man was saved.”

2015 Primary Sharing Time Outline

Discuss how the man might have felt when he was in the hole and then when he was rescued. Tell the children that when we do wrong or sin, it is like falling into a deep hole that we cannot get out of by ourselves.

Show a picture of Jesus and tell the students that just as someone helped the man out of the hole, Jesus Christ can help and save us so that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again.
