(Luke 19:10; Acts 4:12, 16:31)
The Situation: Kids ask, “How can my sins be forgiven?“ Children are acutely aware that sin separates them from God. More respond to the Good News between the ages of 4 and 14 than any other time. But many children are never given the opportunity to receive new life.
The Solution: Salvation is a free gift through personal faith in Jesus Christ. When are children ready to trust Christ as Savior?
1) Hearts—when they feel sorrow for their own sins. 2) Heads—when they understand that Jesus took their place, dying to
pay for their shortcomings. 3) Hands—when they are ready to respond by repenting in attitude and action, receiving His new life.
What You Can Do: Deal with each child individually. When you sense the time is appropriate, present the Gospel twice. The first time, clearly explain the Good News. Use visuals, stories, or diagrams to help communicate the message. The second time, review the Gospel and offer an opportunity to respond. Encourage your child to express his or her faith through prayer.
