Have you ever watched a quick-change artist perform? Quick-change artists do just what their job title says—they change outfits quickly. They take a task that would typically take a minute or two and some maneuvering and they do it in just a few seconds, effortlessly, right before your eyes with just the wave of a cloth or burst of confetti. Let’s watch:

A dramatic change can be very interesting to witness. This is probably why we like shows that reveal a made-over or made-better person or place at the end.

  • What about you? Do you like change or resist change? Why? (Answers will vary. Some people thrive on change for the sake of variety and excitement and others resist it because they feel comfortable with what they know. Most of your students will likely have examples of both.)
  • Have you ever changed or seen someone change their behavior or personality quickly? Tell about that. (Accept all reasonable answers. Common examples of this could be pretending to be doing homework when a parent walks in on you watching YouTube, or someone pretending to like something only when a certain person is around in an attempt to impress them.)
  • Do you think God wants a quick change from us that only lasts a short while, or does He want a heart change that is permanent? (Students may want to consider many aspects of this. We don’t have to change who we are to be Christians or be loved by God, as God has made and gifted us each uniquely, but just as we grow physically, we grow in our faith which requires change—repenting of old ways and becoming more and more like Christ.)

Today we’re going to take a look at a time when Jesus told some people to shape up and change their ways—let’s find out more.
