Everybody stand up! Sing to God with us! 1. "Almighty Creator," by Mark Altrogge © 2004 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI). Sovereign Grace Music, a division of Sovereign Grace Ministries. From Awesome God.
Who made the world? (pause for answers). Who made you? Who made everything? God made everything! In the beginning, when God made everything, the world was perfect. But Adam and Eve, the two very first people God made, sinned. They did what was wrong, and disobeyed God. Because of that, the world is not a perfect place. Now everyone sins and disobeys God.
But God sent His Son Jesus to take the punishment for our sins, and because of that, we can be forgiven! That means if we believe Jesus died to take away sin, and trust Him to do that for us, we can have new life with our sins taken away! Let’s sing about this good news!

People aren’t forgiven and made right with God because they do the right things more than they do wrong things. They’re forgiven and made right with God by God’s grace. That means God saves people when they trust in Jesus to take away their sins, not when they do good things. Even though we deserve to be punished for what we’ve done, God gives what we don’t deserve by sending Jesus to die for us. This song is all about God’s plan of saving people by His grace when no one deserves to be forgiven for the things they’ve done, and through faith in Jesus, trusting in Him to take away sins. 3.

We’re going to pray now, so everybody fold your hands and close your eyes and be still and pay attention to God; we’re going to talk to Him now.
“God, thank You so much for sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Thank you that You give us what we don’t deserve and that You made a way for us to be forgiven. Please help us never to forget that. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
Alright, let’s stand up for one more song! Thank God for Jesus! He loves us so much that He made a way for us to be right with Him and for us to have new life! His love goes on forever!
