Memory Verse

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, that person is a new creation. The old has gone, the new is here”

In this episode, Liz and Lucille make an old barn new again. Do you ever feel like that old barn, like you’re a hopeless case for change? That your life is stuck in a rut of bad habits and sin? Well, the Bible says that there’s no such thing as a hopeless case when God enters the picture. God is in the restoration business. One of the best things about belonging to Jesus and being a part of God’s family is the fact that every day is a new day. Every morning you can start fresh when you confess your sins, repents of your old ways, and commit your life to bringing glory to God. Recently someone described giving God glory as making God look good. When you dedicate your life to making God look good, you’ll show others that God can change hearts and lives, that everything old is new again in Christ Jesus.

Want to dig deeper about being made new? Read Ezekiel 36:26, Hebrews 9:14, and Revelation 21:1.


Butterflies are a wonderful symbol of life being made new. A caterpillar has to die to become a beautiful butterfly! God is in the business of restoration. He takes sinners’ hearts and makes them new through Jesus. Make a butterfly. You could print one from the Internet with a parent’s permission, or draw, paint, or cut out your own. You could put your hands in finger paint and use your hands to make wing prints. Finish your butterfly creation by printing the words, “‘See, I make all things new’ Revelation 21:5”. Hang it on your fridge and share with your family how Jesus has made you new!
