Summary: This is a childrens sermon to show that even though we are all made differently, we belong to one God.
Theme: We are all made differently yet we belong to one God.
Object: Paper, scissors, trash can.
Today I brought some paper and scissors to illustrate the word “different.” Have you ever cut paper into snowflakes?
(Demonstrate by cutting a few snowflakes and then show how they are all different.)
If we had time and I let you each cut out your own snowflake and chances are there wouldn’t be two that were exactly the same.

We are all His. Some have different spiritual gifts, but each spiritual gift comes from God. We all serve one God. So we are united by God. He is Who makes us one body in Christ. We all belong to Him. And I can’t think of anyone better to be related to. The Bible says this:
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (New Living Translation)
4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. 5 There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. 6 God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.
Aren’t you glad we all don’t look exactly the same? Aren’t you glad you are God’s child? I am too. Let
