Easter Countdown Family Activity: You Must be Born Again

9 Days before Easter

Passage: John 3:1-8

Verse: John 3:3

Theme: You must be born again.

One day Jesus was talking to a man named Nicodemus. Jesus told him that people must be born again in order to go to Heaven with God.

Nicodemus was confused. “Born again? How can someone be born a second time? I’m too big to climb into my mom’s belly!”

Jesus answered that people must be born of water (from a woman) and then they must be born again in the Spirit. When we believe in Jesus’ death and resurrection and ask him to be our Savior, we become born again! We become new creations in Christ.

When we see a butterfly, we can think about our new life as Christians when we are born again. Butterflies begin their lives as caterpillars, crawling on the ground and not very beautiful. Then, they become new creations- butterflies! They have beautiful wings and can fly all around!

Just like the butterfly’s new life is beautiful and amazing, the Christian’s new life is beautiful and amazing when we become born again!

Today we're going to make butterflies to help us remember that we must be born again.
