Have you ever wondered who made the earth spin?
Have you ever wondered who filled the land and the sea with plants and animals?
God made the earth and everything on it!
God made us too and he loves us very much!
God really, really wants to be with us.
But sin separates us from God.
Sin is anything we do that makes God unhappy.
Telling lies, fighting and stealing are examples of sin.
The punishment for our sins is that we can’t be with God.
But because God really, really wants to be with us,
he sent his son, Jesus, to bring us back to him.
Jesus came to earth to take the punishment for our sins.
He died on the cross so that our sins can be forgiven.
And on the third day, Jesus became alive again.
We don’t have to be separated from God anymore!
Everybody who believes in Jesus can be with God.
God wants all of us to go to him.
Here’s how you can be with God forever and ever!
1. Admit that you have sinned and ask God to forgive you,
2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross to be punished instead of you, and
3. Invite Jesus into your life to help you turn away from sin
Here’s a prayer you can say to Jesus right now:
Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me. I know that I have sinned. I have done things that are wrong. I believe that you died on the cross to pay the price for my sins. Please forgive all of my sins. Please come into my life and help me turn away from doing wrong. Thank you that because you paid the price for my sins, I can one day be with you in heaven.
