Sin Entered The World

Genesis 3: 1-24

On Sunday RADIUS Kids heard a Bible story that took place in the garden of Eden. Before the fall, Adam and Eve enjoyed a loving, two-way relationship with God. The garden was a true paradise. God filled the garden with good gifts so that they might enjoy them and give thanks to God. The Lord gave them only one restriction: “You must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” and the punishment was severe: “You will certainly die” (Gen. 2:17).

Adam and Eve believed the serpent’s lie, and they sinned. Because of their sin, God cast them out of the garden. Though they did not die right away, sin’s effect was immediate and thorough. Their lives and their children’s lives—and the lives of all of mankind—would be forever affected by their choice. As your kids become increasingly aware of the bad news—that we are all sinners from birth—rejoice with them over the good news: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Tim. 1:15).

Family Conversations and Activities

RADIUS Kids – Preschool
1. Why did God create the world? God created the world for His
2. What is sin? Sin is breaking God’s law.

What Changed?

Place 5 or 6 items on a tray. Direct children to examine the items closely. Cover the tray and remove one item. Uncover the tray and ask children what changed. Play as time allows.

Say: “Adam and Eve sinned, and the world changed. God’s perfect world was no longer perfect.”

Follow My Directions

Give your children a plate and a marker. Ask them to put the plate on top of their heads. Guide them to draw shapes on the plate while continuing to hold it on their heads. Ask your children to draw a circle, and then a square around it. Continue to add more shapes, but be specific as to where they should draw them. Ask your children to look at their plates and determine if they drew the shapes correctly.

Say: “No one was able to draw the shapes perfectly. Do you
think it is possible to follow all of God’s instructions in the Bible perfectly? Only Jesus is perfect. Everyone else who has ever lived on the earth has sinned. What is sin? Sin is breaking God’s law, and sin separated people from God.”
