This family devotional was adapted from our Sunday school curriculum Jesus, What a Savior!
Christian parents have already faced the reality of their own sin, helplessness, and need for a Savior. And, though our young children's lives often seem simpler than ours, their spiritual predicament is every bit as real. They are never too young to hear God's good news for them as they face eternity-but as a parent, you may be wondering how to explain it to them in a way they can understand.
Jill Nelson demonstrates that even young children can learn about the Gospel-not just in general, but in full detail! In this illustrated guide for parents to read with five- through ten-year-old children, she lays out God's plan of salvation, starting with His very first designs for creation and moving through what went wrong, how important and hopeless our situation truly is, and what the wonderful news of our Savior's sacrifice means for us.
Don't just prepare your children for this life-prepare them for the one that matters most! (120 pages)
"Tackling the difficulty of helping children understand the significance of the cross, Jill Nelson clearly and carefully leads her audience through their plight (the bad news of sin) and the rescue promised in the garden (the good news of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus)...Emphasizing key biblical truths written winsomely in a style children can understand, God's Gospel is an excellent primer on the good news of salvation in Christ."
