Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. – Colossians 1:13

Text: Colossians 1:10-14

Sign language "I Love You"
Sign language “I Love You” (wave sideways)

Prop: translations of the word “Love” into other languages and “I love you” in sign language (see below)

Summary: God changes us in a manner that we are able to love others. Jesus loves you.

This is what the word “love” looks like in other languages. It has been translated from English into other languages. The word “translate” means to change into another language. (Show the attachment and read some of the translations aloud.) Even if you could not speak, this is sign language for “I love you.” (Demonstrate the sign language by waving your hand sideways as you make the sign. Invite the children to try it.) Did you know that Jesus loves you? Yes, God loves you. He loves you so much that he is willing to translate you — to change you — so you may love others.

(Read Colossians 1:10-14.)

Did you hear the part about being ‘translated’? God loves us so much he translates us into the kingdom of his dear Son. He delivers us from evil. He forgives our sins and takes away our badness. Jesus loves you in every way there is to say “I love you.” He does that so we may follow his example and love others. God wants us to love others. Let’s say “I love you” in sign language to everyone here today. (Lead the children in signing.)

Let us pray. Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for your love. Help me to love others. Amen.

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
