But this weeks lesson uses foil to remind us that as Christians we are destined to be conformed to the image of Christ, reflecting Him in all that we do. Its not just being seen as Christlike, but God molding us and shaping us into the image of His Perfect Son.

Make mirrors for teams by wrapping a piece of aluminum foil, shiny side out, around a small square of cardboard. Youth must walk through the maze by looking into the foil mirror held straight out from their eyebrows so that the mirror reflects the ground at their feet.

Youth are only allowed to look in their mirror to navigate. The youth who completes the maze in the quickest time wins. To make it a little more difficult, assign time penalties for each time a person steps on a line or touches an obstacle.

Variation: Everyone must walk backwards from one side of the area to the other using only foil mirrors to see.

Mirror Scavenger Hunt Place a variety of items inside a designated area that youth must collect and deliver to their team. They must look toward the ceiling, holding a foil mirror above their head so that it reflects the ground at the feet to navigate and retrieve the objects. The team that picks up all the items the fastest wins. Variations: Youth must pick up the items according to size or place some items that incur penalties when touched.

Walk the Line Make a zig-zag and single maze like line of masking tape or using chalk that winds around the room and ends on the opposite side of the room. While looking into a foil mirror placed above their heads youth are to walk the line to the end of the room then return.

If they miss stepping on the line they must return to the start. Using a stop watch, time the team in getting all members to walk the line relay style. Team with the quickest time wins. Mirror Dodge Ball Make balls of foil from discarded aluminum foil. Place a line or divider down the center of the room. While looking AWAY from the supposing team and into a mirror so they can see the team behind them, youth must toss the balls of foil and try to hit people in the other team.

Team with the most remaining members after a given time period is declared the winner. Capture the Flag Divide your youth group in two teams and the room into two territories so that each team has one territory. Give each team a flag they can place anywhere in their territory. It must be visible when you are next to it and the other team must be able to directly access it Teams can place tables, chairs, or other defense objects in their territory.

Supply each team with as many aluminum foil balls as possible. The object is to get the other teams flag to your side without getting hit by an aluminum foil ball thrown from the other team. When the team members begin to dwindle, raids can be made on the other teams flag.

The first team to capture the other teams flag is declared the winner. Everyone re-supplies with the aluminum foil balls and another round can be played. Foil wars For this game youll need a dark room, a strobe light, and several rolls of aluminum foil. Make as many balls of aluminum foil as possible. Divide the room in half and have a line down the middle of the room. Place an equal number of foil balls on each side of the room, shut off the lights and start the strobe light.

When the lights come back on the team with the fewest number of foul balls on their side wins the game. If you want to reduce the amount of foil used you can also cover ping pong balls with foil. Aluminum Foil Sculptures Give each youth small sheet of aluminum foil.

When the clock starts, they will have one minute to create an aluminum sculpture. When finished, display the Sculptures on a table in the front of the room and have the youth group vote on winners for various categories. Tallest Tower Give each team a roll of aluminum foil and using only the foil teams must create the tallest free-standing tower possible in 10 minutes.

For an extra challenge, give all the teams less time. Spot the Difference Find some spot the difference puzzles Two images that are mirror reflections of each other but with changes. Award points to teams of youth for correctly identifying the differences in the two mirror images NOTE: You can also replace the ping pong ball in many games with a ball of aluminum foil or use the wrapping paper ideas I sent at Christmas and use foil instead.

If they wear glasses, a hat, earrings or other peculiar identifiable items ask them to leave them on during the mold making process. With a marker put the owners name on the inside of each. If you have a very large group you can reduce the time required by recruiting several representatives in advance.

Place the masks in random order in front of the volunteers. The youth have to try to match the face with the mask. The player with the most correct wins. Image a physical likeness or representation of a person, animal, or thing, photographed, painted, sculptured, or otherwise made visible.

Our lives are molded to him and we reflect him in our actions and thoughts. Sin corrupted Gods image in us However when man fell he became a distorted, corrupted image of God. Like a piece of foil, wadded up and then used as a mirror, the reflection is shattered. When we sin, we choose to be molded not into the image of God, but into the image of other things. We replace God with those things and they shape our lives, corrupting it and destroying the image of God in us.

God redeems us Youve made an impression of your face in foil, but the foil isnt really you. It looks a little like you, but Its not you. Its just an impression of who you are. In the same way, we are created in the image of God. Each of us was created, shaped, loved, redeemed, and called by God to be transformed into His Perfect You, reflecting the best of God in everything.

God wants to Mould us into the image of His Son Gods also want to leave His impression on us, specifically the impression of Christ to be Christlike. We still look like ourselves, but God wants us to look like him in the ways we live and think.

Its not the reflection of our face, but the reflection of our heart God wants to change. Molding requires pressure It take pressure to mould the foil to your face. In the same way God may use pressure to mould us into the image of His Son. It may be through health, trials, temptations, challenges, tests of our faith. Whatever circumstances God allows in our lives are for the purpose of making us more Christlike. What is a mould? When you look at your reflection in a mirror, how does the quality of the mirror affect how you see yourself?

What are some ways that a Christian begins to look like Christ in his or her actions, deeds, values, thoughts, habits, and words? What are some examples of Christlike characteristics? In what ways does a Christian mirror Jesus? What does this say about you? Does your life reflect Christ? Your Heart? In what ways is God molding you into the image of His Son? In what ways is God still conforming you to his image? What Christlike characteristics would others describe in your life?

Whats one thing that would change in your life if you were more Christlike? Psalm For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Galatians 3: You are all sons and daughters of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Peter You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. Romans I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Now I know only a part, but then I will know fully, as God has known me www. James Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.

But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it they will be blessed in what they do.
