After finishing a message on the saving grace of Jesus, a little girl put up her hand. “You’re just telling us stuff we already know,” she said. That was an interesting comment, so it had to be pursued and tested.
“Well, then,” the response came. “If you were to die tonight and God asked you why He should let you into Heaven, what would you say to Him?”
Without any hesitation the little girl answered, “I’d tell God I’ve been a good girl.”
The rest of the session was spent trying to explain that no one could behave so well that they make it into heaven. Only through belief in Jesus and what He did for us on the cross can you get into Heaven. The Gospel must be explained in an understandable way over and over. That is our part. The acceptance of the Gospel and all that goes with it, is up to the Holy Spirit. You can count on children hearing about Jesus when they come to Kid’s Club!
