God created everything in the universe, all the stars, planets, animals, plants, and people. He created YOU! God tells us that he knew you before you were even born. He loves you very much. God is perfect and Holy. He wants to have a relationship with you where you can talk to Him anytime you want.
The first two people God made were Adam and Eve. They lived in a beautiful garden called Eden. Everything was perfect in Eden. But one day Satan looking like a snake tricked Eve into doing something God had told her not to do. Adam then disobeyed God too. This is how sin entered the world. When we do bad things it is called sin. Other times we know we should do something good and we don’t, that is sin too. Sin separates us from God because He is perfect and Holy. But God loved us so much He made a special way for all of our sins to be made clean. He sent His only Son Jesus to earth to live as a man. He died on a cross and in three days rose again. Jesus was the only way to take care of our sin, as He was a perfect sacrifice. He made a way for us to have a relationship with God and be with Him forever in Heaven. Because Jesus died on the cross all of our sins are forgiven. It was a FREE GIFT from God!
Jesus lives in Heaven today sitting next to God the father. He is preparing a wonderful place for you in Heaven! Jesus wants to have a relationship with you. You can be close to God by talking to Him in prayer. He listens to all of your prayers and loves it when you pray. Jesus wants you to learn more about Him everyday by reading His word in the Bible. Through the Bible and praying to Him, He teaches us how to be more like Him.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'” – John 14:6
Jesus Christ is the only way to be with God in Heaven. God sent His only Son to earth to die on the cross so your sins could be forgiven. On the third day He rose from the dead. If you BELIEVE this in your heart and want to turn away from sin, this is FAITH! Jesus will help you to live your life for Him. He loves you very much and will be with you forever!
