Wee Read Wednesday: I Believe in Jesus

i believe in jesus john macarthur
It is the most important conversation you will ever have with your child, but that does not make it easy. The gospel is simple enough for little ones but has kept theologians debating for years. So when it comes to explaining the Good News to your son or daughter, where do you start?

In I Believe in Jesus, John MacArthur walks children through the Gospel of Jesus in a way that is easy to understand, and equips parents, grandparents, teachers, and loved ones to share the familiar story of God's love.

By opening the door to conversations that lead to salvation, this picture book has the potential to change lives forever.

Our Thoughts:
Making sure my children know and love God is the most important thing I can do as a parent. Giving them the tools they need to read the decision of salvation, and then living in God’s love is a top priority and the one thing I do not want to mess up.

I have read this book several times now, and can tell it is going to be an amazing resource for our family. Do I believe this book alone will lead my children to salvation in Christ? No. However, I do believe it is a great way to get that conversation started; to bring them to the questions they need to ask to seek the answers to their salvation.

This book walks children through the very nature of sin and its beginning with Eve. It uses that basis to explain God’s desire to forgive us from each of our sins and give us everlasting life with Him. It explains life after our decision of salvation, and our desire to walk with God through our life. I believe this is a wonderful book for our children to read, to read with our children, and then have discussions afterwards.

Salvation is a top priority for our children. I believe this book can be a great resource for helping you lead children in that direction.
