Pumpkin Devotional


Wow…it’s been awhile since I posted. So much has happened. But first, I wanted to share this pumpkin devotion that I do with my family every year. It’s an alternative to just only carving a pumpkin. I love this idea and the kids love it. It teaches the gospel. It’s a great tool to share with the unsaved, maybe your neighbors, kids friends from school and your unsaved family members. So here it goes….

START CARVING

And then start talking about how……….
We become a new creation when Jesus comes into our heart.
#1 Read Matthew 23:25-28
#2 Revelations 3:20
How is the stuff we pull out of the pumpkin like sin in our hearts?
(both yucky, they’re inside us, sticky and smelly)

How is the way we cleaned out our pumpkin like the way Jesus cleans us
out when we confess our sins?
(All the yucky stuff is taken away)

COMPLETE FACE then Read #3 2 Cor 5:17 and #4 Ephesians 2:10
SWITCH PUMPKINS (I pre-carved a pumpkin to save time)You don’t have to do this part.

How have we made this pumpkin a “new creation”?
(was a pumpkin, now a jack-o-lantern)

How do we become a new creation when Jesus comes into our hearts?
(We learn to love Him more, our light shines & we become God’s children)

Read: #5 — 2 Corinthians 4:7-10
When Jesus comes into our hearts, we become new creations.

Read:#6 Matthew 5:14-16 then LIGHT CANDLE
TURN OFF LIGHTS

Discuss how God wants our light to shine before others.
READ #7 2 Corinthians 4:6

How is the way the candle light comes through the pumpkin like the way
God wants our light to shine?

Sing: This little light of mine.

This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,

I’m going to let it shine,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

On Monday, He gave me the gift of love;
On Tuesday, peace came from above.
On Wednesday told me to have more faith;
On Thursday, gave me a little more grace.
On Friday, told me to watch and pray
On Saturday, told me just what to say,
On Sunday, gave the power divine
Just to let my little light shine.

This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

Now some say you got to run and hide.
But we say there’s no place to hide.
And some say let others decide,
But we say let the people decide.
Some say the time’s not right,
But we say the time’s just right.
If there’s a dark corner in our land,
You got to let your little light shine.

This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

What happens when we hide our light so others can’t see it?
Let’s see what happens…..

Also, let’s look at another pumpkin. If we live good Christian lives,
God’s light will always shine
through no matter what. Have fun with this!!
