Explanation of film content (5 minutes)
The film illustrates what it takes toget into heaven. The main focus that will be emphasized for the lesson is theimportance of being holy. The film proclaims that God is holy (perfect) and he
cannot allow anything imperfect into heaven. When we break one of God’s
laws, we become imperfect. Our sins are chronicled in a book as a record.Jesus wants us be in heaven. In order to do this, he had to become a humanbeing and live a perfect life. Then He had to die on the cross to take the
punishment that people deserve for breaking God’s law. When we ask God to
forgive us, turn away from our sins and accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour,
He will exchange Jesus’ perfect record for our imperfect record. We are thenrefined towards perfection by God’s Word. At the time of our death, we will
stand before God and our record book would be examined. Since we areforgiven, lived a godly life
and haven’t broken any
more of God’s law
, ourrecord would also be perfect (holy) and so we can enter into heaven.
