God, who are you?
am the person who made you and
loves you more than any other
why can't I see you?
as you are, you do evil things
which hurt me. No human person
can see me and still live, but
you will see me one day.
will that be?
people die those who love me and
do what Jesus says will join me
is my only son who came down to
earth and showed my love to people
around him. He not only cared
for them and healed them when
they were ill, but he also taught
them the way to live which would
make me their father, pleased.
people believe that Jesus was
they didn't. Although he was perfect
and did nothing wrong, they chose
to beat him and kill him rather
than believe him, because they
didn't you stop them from killing
love people so much that I allowed
them to do this to my only son.
The only way for evil people to
start a new clean life was for
him to go through all this suffering.
As he was dying, all the evil
that has ever been done went into
his perfect body, so he could
take it away and destroy evil
once and for all.
is Jesus now dead with all our
evil in him?
I told you Jesus is my son. Neither
evil nor death could beat him.
After three days he came back
to life and in fact is with me
all my evils have been forgiven?
I spend forever with you in heaven?
.... that depends .... you see
right from the beginning I gave
people a chance to choose for
didn't want to force them to love
me, so even though Jesus went
through all he did, I still had
to allow people to choose if they
want to love me or not, so to
show me they love me, I require
them to do a few simple things.
must I do?
that you have done evil things
like losing your temper, not
telling the truth, being selfish
and so on. Be really sorry for
doing them. Stop doing things
that just please you and begin
doing the things that please
me - it's not as hard as it
seems because I will help you.
that my son Jesus gave his life
up because he loves you and
to make you clean from all the
evil you have ever done. Through
his death he gives you a brand
new life, he makes you a real
child of mine .... you thank
part of me who is on earth is
the Holy Spirit - he's the one
who is speaking to you now,
even as you read this. Invite
him to come into your life and
to fill you with his power,
so that you can live out your
life as a Christian in a way
which makes me a father proud
a few moments talking to me
and thanking me, because you've
now done the greatest thing
that can be done on earth ....
You've found a real Father -
you've found a real rescuer
.... and you have found the
Holy Spirit who, if you allow
him, will help you in everything
you do, every minute of the
God, what next?
you are as excited as you should
be, go and tell people you have
become a Christian. Don't ever
be embarrassed about me, and I
won't ever be embarrassed about
life be easier now?
some ways yes, because you
now know you have me with you
always in good times and bad.
But don't be surprised if there
are really hard times. People
will laugh at you and call you
names as you try and follow me.
else should I do?
with other Christians who can
help and encourage you is very
important, ask them to tell you
about baptism and communion. You
can help and encourage them too
and learn together things I have
taught in the bible.
find reading the Bible very difficult.
worry - find a modern version
like the Living Bible, and start
reading Matthew's Gospel a little
you help me, Father God?
of course I will.
I am always with you. Don't forget
to talk with me, and together
we shall see many other people
come to know me as their real
Father, and become part of our
