I always try to look at Jesus through a child’s eyes, so that when we talk about Him, the children can understand better. During Jesus in the Park we always ask our children “What’s in the Bible?” (God’s Word) and “What are the stories?” (True). I’m not able to use metaphors or eloquent words. I have to break things down to the simplest of terms.
Jesus is God’s Son.
Jesus was given to us by God because He loves us.
Everything Jesus says is true.
Jesus loves you.
Jesus wants you to go to Heaven and be your friend forever.
These simple statements are great for young ones, but also for those adults that may not have learned of Him yet, or those who are struggling to reconnect.
