Choosing Jesus 

Praying a prayer of salvation for Kids!

Jesus loves every single one of us. His invitation to us is "Come, Follow Me." But each of us get to decide whether we will follow Jesus, or if we want to continue to do life on our own. If you want to follow Jesus, it begins with 3 simple steps – the "ABC's of Faith".


Romans 3:23 says "all have sinned". The first step to following Jesus is to confess your sin. Admit that you do things you know are not right. Things like lying, disobeying, or thinking mean thoughts. Your sins separate you from God, but when you admit that you need Jesus' help, he'll save you from your sins. 


Romans 10:9 says if we confess that Jesus is God, and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved. Following Jesus starts with believing that He is God, lived a perfect life on earth, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again. 


James 2:19 says even the demons believe Jesus is God. Just knowing that truth isn't enough. We also have to CHOOSE to follow Jesus. We have to decide to let Jesus be in charge of our lives and to live his way, instead of our own. 

If you want to follow Jesus, you can start with a simple prayer like this: 

Dear Jesus, I know that I have sinned. I am sorry. I believe you are God. That you died for my sins and that you rose again. I choose to follow you from this day forward.
