You will need:
White board pen
Sponge cut into the shape of a cross
Look at your face in the mirror. Remind yourself – ‘You are God’s masterpiece!’ (Eph 2:10).
Talk about the things which you do wrong – sins, selfish things, attitudes which are not God’s best. Write them on the mirror in pen.
Pray to say sorry for these things.
Use the sponge to wipe the mirror clean again. As you do it imagine that this is Jesus wiping you clean and reflect on this scripture:
Eph 2:9-10 (NLT) Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Take the pen again and fill the mirror with the good things about yourself. Ask God, your family and friends to speak these to you if are unable to come up with any on your own.
What are things you need to remember about yourself?
How can you be a blessing in the world?
Leave these things on the mirror as long as it takes you to really truly believe them.
Think about what Monday means to you. What do you think is Good about Jesus’ death on the cross?
Write down words or phrases of key things you heard or reflected on.
Turn your phrases into a poem, prayer, rap or other creative writing.
When you’ve finished, show the poem to one of the leaders – or share it on your social media to encourage others.
