Visual Aids: On a poster or chalk board print: 1.Peace, 2. Forgiveness, 3. Adoption, 4.Holy Spirit’s Indwelling, 5. New Nature, 6.Justification, & 7.Advocate. Into a small box, put these 7 words on slips of paper. Wrap the box with Christmas paper and a ribbon and a tag that says “To: anyone who wants to be saved.” Wrap it so the paper is still on but the lid comes open each time. Do the same for Lesson 6. Make a white heart 8x11 as the black one, for the wall with “They shall be as white as snow” Is 1:18 on it.

Aims: The student would be able to quote the underlined part of the verse and 5 of the 7 Gifts of Salvation I.

5. John 3: 6,7 New Nature That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

6. Romans 4:25 Justification: just as if I’d never sinned. Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
