Ways To Help Children Understand God And Salvation

Children And Their Teacher

Are the truths of God too difficult for a child to comprehend?

Certainly not! We begin the process by letting the child know that God is so great and awesome that nobody can understand Him completely. Then, as they hear truths about God they won’t feel so uncertain when something they hear is difficult to process.

We begin by telling them that God created everything in the world and that He made it from nothing. Nobody created God; He has just always been here. God is everything that is good and nothing that is bad. He is loving, fair, kind, good, righteous, holy, powerful, all-knowing and forgiving. He will never tell a lie, break a promise, or make a mistake. There are many scripture verses that tell us about God’s characteristics and abilities.

God is Spirit which means He is not physical; He does not have flesh and blood. He cannot be seen with the human eye.

What does God want from us? He wants to be in a relationship with us. He wants to be in heaven with us forever, so He came up with a plan so that we can be forgiven of our sins and spend eternity with Him in heaven. We call His plan, the Plan of Salvation.
