God Created Everything
Before there was even a world, God existed! He created the earth, every animal, and us! God created the very first man and woman, Adam and Eve.
Sin Entered The World
God told Adam and Eve to not eat fruit from one tree in the garden. They did not obey God and chose to eat the fruit anyway. Because of this, sin entered the world. All of us have sinful hearts, and none of us are perfect.
God Made A Plan
Because God knows everything, he knew Adam and Eve would sin and we would not be perfect humans. He wants a relationship with us, so He made a plan to send Jesus to earth to forgive our sins.
Jesus Changes Everything
God's song Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph. Jesus lived a perfect life and died on the cross to take away our sins. Jesus knew that we would mess up in life, but chose to save us so we could spend eternity in heaven with God.
Jesus Changes Us
Because of what Jesus did on the cross, we can live free from our sin!It doesn't mean we won't mess up, but it does mean we can shine Jesus' light and remember that God loves us anyways. While we are on earth, we can share this good news, pray to God, read our bible, and live differently than the world.
Heaven For Eternity
When we die or Jesus comes back to get us, we will get to spend forever with God and Jesus in heaven. There will be no pain, no sin, and no sadness. Our job on earth is to accept Jesus into our hearts, love God, tell other people, and get ready to spend forever with Him.
Accept Jesus Into Your Heart
If you have never accepted Jesus into your heart, you can do that right now! You can talk to a counselor, family member, pastor, or friend and let them know that you want to have a relationship with Jesus. When you accept Jesus into your heart, the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. This means God is with you all the time.
I Believe, God!
Accepting Jesus into your heart and becoming a Christian is a big deal! When you decide to follow Jesus, it means you believe God is the one true God, that Jesus died for our sins and is the only way to know God, and that you will live with Him forever in heaven.
Tell the World!
It's exciting when someone accepts Jesus into their heart and becomes a Christian! Share your exciting news with your friends and family so they can celebrate with you! One way you can show the world you are a Christian is through baptism. Getting baptized is a way we tell everyone that we believe in who God is and we are a new creation. If you want to get baptized, you can talk to your parents, pastor, or trusted adult.
Love God and Others
Because of how awesome God is, we can live brand new lives as Christians. God doesn't just want to spend forever in heaven with you, he wants to have a relationship with you right now. Try to make time every day to pray to God. You can talk to Him about everything. You can also read or listen to your bible, attend church, and spend time with other Christians.
