Avoid the "Tricks"Some people say "Wait until you're older to think about believing in God."But when God's son, Jesus Christ, came to earth to live he said, "Let the children come to me and do not hinder them" (Matthew 19:13). Jesus loves kids and wants them to know him and his Father! Others say "It doesn't really matter what you believe about God." But the Bible says that Jesus, God's Son, is the ONLY way you can ever know God. Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Another thing people say is "Believing in Jesus is boring." But listen to what Jesus said about those who believe in him, "I came that they may have life and have it abundantly" (John 10:10). "Boring" isn't something Jesus ever had in mind for those who believe in him. Follow the TruthDon't be tricked by things people say about God. It's much safer to let God speak for himself in the Bible. You'll discover that he has only truth to share and absolutely no tricks. Truths like these... God and his Son Jesus love us. "God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). That's real love, to die to save someone else's life! But why would Jesus have to die for us? Because he knew that the bad things we do--things like selfishness, lies, hatred, and disobedience--are the reasons we aren't automatically part of God's family. God calls those sins and he says sins have very serious consequences: "the wages of sin is [eternal] death" (Romans 6:23). That means being separated from God forever. Remember how Jesus loved kids when he was on earth? It makes sense that he would make a way for kids--and adults too--to have their sins forgiven and someday go to heaven. Here's how he did it. He became a human like us, lived a perfect life, then he took God's punishment for our sins by dying on the cross!
