Bible Object Lessons

Bible object lessons offer a simple tool to help us relate God's Word to our everyday surroundings. We can think of them as short, simple parables. They provide excellent Bible lessons for all ages - kids, teens, & adults.

Jesus used parables at all times of the day and in a variety of circumstances and locations. His teaching was ongoing.  Let's be like Him as we share God's truth with those around us!

If you're in a hurry though, try using our quick Object Lesson Index A-Z with over sixty free Bible object lessons! 

We also have 10 Quick Object Lessons straight from Scripture that take very little preparation and are perfect for Children's sermons or easy five minute devotions.

Bible Object Lessons from the Kitchen

A chocolate cake can also teach a wonderful Bible object lesson on the truth of Romans 8:28. Yum!!! Or another "cooking" Bible object lesson uses a recipe to teach that we can know what we believe to be true because "the proof is in the pudding!"

Brownies sound yummy until you find out cat food was mixed into the batter, but it makes a memorable Bible lesson on sin and how even just a little can make life yucky!

Use a sponge to teach how to respond when the "squeeze" is on...a lesson on dealing with tough times.

Simple objects such as an apple or water both can help children better (although not completely) understand the concept of the Trinity.

Lessons from everyday objects

Everywhere we turn, God has a lesson for us - whether it's from a butterfly in nature, a cell phone in our hand, or even a piece of silver. They can help us understand difficult concepts such as the Trinity.

This object lesson activity uses socks and shoes in a "slip and slide war" to illustrate the benefit of God's peace in our life.

A toolbox can be used to show how God uses a variety of unique people and gifts to build His Church and do His work alongside Him - "God's Toolbox."

I've even used my digital camera and a mirror to share a children's object talk teaching on our being created in the image of God.

Many Christian object talks take very little preparation; try these easy Bible object lessons that teach about prayer, relationships, and our worth in God's eyes.

Other object lessons for children use objects such as M&Ms, sponges, ping pong balls, and more!

Bible Lessons for Kids from the Outdoors

Hunting and fishing are topics that can teach children about Satan's schemes and the dangers of temptation.

Most of our kids play or at least watch different types of sports.  What every time they went to football practice or saw a football game come on TV, it reminded them of how they can put on the armor of God?!

A variety of sports equipment can be used to demonstrate how you need the right equipment to play a certain sport correctly.  You can't hit a basketball with a golf club and expect to win a game of golf!  Use this to teach how Solomon tried a lot of wrong things to find purpose in life or how we each need to use the spiritual gifts and talents God has given us in the places of service He wants us to be.

How about transportation?  Headlights on a car can demonstrate trusting in God's will and a train object lesson teaches how faith comes before good works and not the other way around.

Object Lessons from the  Classroom

Bible Object Lessons for Children

Sometimes you may need Bible object lessons for specific age groups - children including preschoolers as well as grade schoolers. There are other times you may just need a short children's devotion to be used during children's church or for a children's sermon.

Using simple objects as visuals will make these times even more memorable and effective.

You can also use popular children's books for unique and creative Christian book talks.

Still others have learned to use Gospel Illusions to present visual illustrations for Biblical truths. Don't let the word "magic" scare you; these are only illusions used to capture students' attention and help them remember the truth of God's Word. There is no "magic" involved.

Leading our families

In Deuteronomy 4:6-9, God says:

"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." (NIV)

Simple everyday objects can be connected to Scripture and used to teach quick Bible study lessons as we "sit at home," "walk along the road," "lie down," or "get up." 

Christian object lessons are meant to be tools to assist you in sharing God's Word in everyday life. It will be like putting feet to your Bible Study!
