What does a Christmas tree look like before it gets decorated? Just a regular old tree, right? But when the lights sparkle, the brightly-colored ornaments dangle from the branches and the star perches on top, the tree lights up a whole room.
Ezekiel 36:26 reminds us Jesus can change us into something beautiful, too. He can even give us a “new heart.” What do you think that means? After you talk about it, watch the video below to see how God changes us. Then see if you can find an everyday object in your house and decorate it for Christmas to remember how Jesus makes us new. You can also check out this song to see how change looked for a guy named Zacchaeus.
