Send someone outside of the room and close the door. Instruct that person to knock several different times (they should wait for a while every time they knock). Instruct children to refrain from answering the door while the person is knocking.
Once you are finished with this activity, discuss the following questions:
1) Why do we have doors? (Discuss)
2) What are some times when we should open our doors? (Discuss)
3) What are some times when we should not open our doors? (Discuss)
4) Do you think we have something like a door in our hearts (so we can let some things in and
keep other things out)? (Discuss)
🎥 V I D E O : " Stand at the Door and Knock"
Say: “Jesus Christ is knocking on a door. He wants to come inside our hearts and he wants to teach us. While you watch the video, see if you can answer this question: Does Jesus break the door down and force his way in, or does he just knock?”
