What is electricity?" "Where does it come from?"
"Can I touch a high line wire?"
"Will that dog bite? "
"Are these berries safe to eat?
Questions! Questions! Kids are full of questions! Yet asking the right questions and getting the right answers may make all the difference in survival, in life or death.
And in quiet serious moments, kids ask the most important questions of all - "Where did I come from?"; "Who am I?"; Who is God?"; What is sin?"; How can I be saved?"; Does it really matter?" Finding the right answer to those questions makes all the difference. It is indeed, a matter of life and death. Here are some things every kid wants to know!
WHO IS GOD? God is the self-existing, eternal, invisible, true God, who created the heavens and earth, people, and all things.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT IS TRUE? God gave us the Bible so we could know about Him, His love, and His Salvation. "Thy word is truth" (John 17:17)
WHAT IS SIN? Sin is any act, thought, or attitude that does not please and glorify God.
WHO IS JESUS CHRIST? He is God's eternal, only begotten Son. ".....This is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world" (John 4:42) "....Thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God" (John 6:69)
WHO IS A SINNER? Everyone. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10)
IS THERE PUNISHMENT FOR SIN? Yes. "The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). This means eternal death in hell apart from God.
HOW CAN I ESCAPE THAT PENALTY? By trusting the Lord Jesus Christ as your only Savior. On the cross He paid the penalty for your sin. "Christ died for our sins" (I Cor. 15:3).
WHY DID HE DO THAT? Because God loves you. "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)
IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED? No. Faith in Christ alone saves. "Neither is there salvation in any other:" (Acts 4:12)
WHAT MUST I BELIEVE ABOUT CHRIST? "That Christ died for our sins.......that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (I Cor. 15:3,4)
WHEN SHOULD I RECEIVE CHRIST? Now! "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." II Cor. 6:2)
HOW CAN I RECEIVE CHRIST? Realizing that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sin and trust Him to save you. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
HOW CAN I KNOW IF I AM SAVED? Take God at His Word. "He that hath the Son hath life." (I John 5:12) "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life" (I John 5:13)
WILL SALVATION MAKE A DIFFERENCE? True faith in Christ brings a changed life. "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" II Cor. 5:17). "Thou shalt be his witness" (Acts 22"15)
