Did you know that God loves you? He loves you very much. He loves you so much, He sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to die for you. It tells us that in God’s book, the Bible….”For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Are you wondering why Jesus Christ had to die for you? Well the Bible says that “…there is none that does good, no not one. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:12b,23
What this means is that everyone in the world has done bad things in their life, just like you and I. Like when you get mad at your sister or brother or someone at school, or when you do not do what your parents tell you to do, or when your lie and don’t tell the truth to someone.
That’s why Jesus had to die. For the bad things we have done. Because when we do bad things, God does not like it, and He is hurt and very sad. But there is one thing that makes God forgive and forget the bad things we have done. And what do you think that one thing is? Well, it”s not going to church or Sunday School. And it”s not because our parents might go to church. That one thing isn’t even being good. God will forgive and forget about the bad things you have done, and bring you to heaven some day, if you will simply believe that His Son, Jesus Christ, died for you. Look at John 3:16 again….”For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” It says that if you believe in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, you will not perish, (or go to hell), but you will have everlasting life, which simply means you will live with Jesus in heaven forever!
Will you believe in Him today?
