Do you want to know Jesus?
Do you want to lead your Child to Christ?
Explain to your child:
Sin is the bad things we do.
Sin hurts you--and hurts God because sin keeps you away from Him.
God is holy and perfect. He loves you and wants to be with you always.
God wants you to have a good life, so He sent His Son Jesus to break sin's power and to help you.
This is called "getting SAVED."
It is how you go from being a Sinner to being a Christian, a Believer in Jesus!!!
God make it SO SIMPLE for this to happen!
All you have to do is follow these steps and mean it (God sees your heart):
1. Ask God to forgive you.
2. Ask Jesus to be the Lord, the God of your life.
3. Believe that God raised Jesus from the dead.
4. Ask Jesus to live in your heart and be with you forever -- and He WILL!!!
If you are a grown-up, you can pray for your child and then they can pray:
"Dear Father in heaven, thank You for this child. Thank You for helping him/her realize that he/she is a sinner and needs your forgiveness. Thank You for sending Jesus to die on the cross for us. I thank You that You will hear this precious child right now as he/she asks you to save him/her."
If you are a child (or a grown-up!), you can pray this (you can have your child repeat the words after you). Explain these are not "magic words," but an important prayer that God will hear:
“Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and have done bad things. You sent Jesus to save me. He died on the cross to take the punishment for my sins and then He rose from the dead and is coming back someday. Please forgive me, come into my life and change me. Please guide me in my life and help me to follow You for the rest of my life. Thank You for saving me and living in my heart forever. Amen!"
Welcome to God's Family! He is now your Heavenly Father!!!
Write down today's date--it is your spiritual birthday! You have just been "born again!"
Even if you forget the date, God never will! It's good to write it down in a Bible so you have it and can look at that date and remember it always because it is a good memory. If the enemy (the devil) ever tries to make you think you are not saved, you can say, "No, no, Mr. Devil! I asked Jesus to come into my heart on this date! Now go away and don't lie to me! Jesus is in my heart! I am saved!!!"
Your name is in God's Book of Life! He has written your name down in heaven!
Has someone been praying for you? Tell them you have been born again.
Do you have a Bible you can read? Or a picture Bible? Read it every day.
Pray every day to God (that means talking and listening to Him).
Do you go to church? Ask to be baptized in water. That's something Jesus talked about. It shows the world that you have made Jesus your Lord.
Whatever happens in your life, know that Jesus is with you always. Talk to Him and listen to Him in your heart. He will guide you in line with what He says in the Bible. He loves you.
Pray for your family, for the leaders of your country, for people in school. Pray that more people come to Jesus. That is what will make the BIGGEST difference in the world.
You are a winner because the God of the universe, Jesus Christ lives BIG in your heart right now!
