Effect: Roll a pen into a piece of paper. Then crumble the paper and throw it away.
Use this illustration to talk about how pens leave marks. Share a story about a pen that stained or leaked and make a mess. Sin has left a mark on our lives as well. As you talk roll the pen into a piece of paper. Hold it on the ends and say “But through Jesus, God has made a way to take our sins away.” Then push from the ends and wad it into a small ball. Drop it in a trash can and talk about how God desires to “cast our sins as far as the east from the west” (Psalm 103:12).
