This series is called forever. ‘Forever’ is a pretty mind bending subject, something pretty hard to get your head around. The best way to see it is like a perfect circle. There is no beginning or end, it just keeps going! That’s what forever is like, we will spend forever with God in heaven, living on into eternity with Him!
This month we’re focusing on amazing people from the Bible who we’ll get to know in Heaven! This weekend we’re focusing on the most important one of all, Jesus.
BELIVE IN JESUS! This Sunday we learned that no matter what, Jesus made a way for you to get to heaven.
Jesus is the son of God and the savior of the world. The reason the world needs to be saved is because after God made this world perfect, something awful happened - people disobeyed God. Even still, God loved us more than anything. Jesus was sent by God to earth from heaven. He healed the sick, did so many miracles, and even raised people from the dead! Not everyone believed in Jesus, so they killed him but three days later he rose from the dead!
Jesus’ death on the cross was very special because even though He was perfect, He let himself be punished for the wrong things we have done. The Bible says,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson,
I will make them as white as wool. “
And now, since we have Jesus to take away our sin, if we believe in Him and follow Him, we can live forever!
