Use these Scriptures in your lesson about Jesus as the Light of the World, for your Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt, your Walk in the Light Easter Event, or for any lesson teaching kids about light! They’re short enough for kids to memorize, and they coordinate with any light or glowing theme. (Note: All verses in NIrV)

John 12:36a – “While you have the light, believe in it. Then you can become children of light.”

1 John 1:5-7 – Here is the message we have heard from him and announce to you. God is light. There is no darkness in him at all. Suppose we say that we share life with God but still walk in the darkness. Then we are lying. We are not living out the truth. But suppose we walk in the light, just as he is in the light. Then we share life with one another. And the blood of Jesus, his Son, makes us pure from all sin.” (This verse is the theme for our Walk in the Light Lantern-Making Easter Event!)
