This is a great illustration to launch into topics such as:
- True Faith – Do you believe I can drop the ring down the chain and it not hit the floor? If you get really good at this trick, you can even go as far as calling up a volunteer and dropping the ring over their head to illustrate the difference between “believing” with your head and actually trusting.
- The Impossible – Use this illusion to springboard into any Bible story miracle. Nothing is impossible with God.
- The Importance of God’s Word – Call up some volunteers and let them drop the ring. It won’t work for them. Then teach them how to do it. It will work only because they follow the instructions. The Bible is our instruction book on how to live life…
- The Importance of Sharing Jesus – You can either tell them the secret of the trick or keep it to yourself. The same is true with the Gospel. We are all surrounded by people who are searching for Christ. Will you show them the way?
