Adapted by Bob Davies and Tammy S.
God knows we have done bad things, which He calls
sin. The penalty for sin is death.
God Ioves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to die
on a Cross and pay our penalty. Jesus came aIive and
went back to Heaven! Now God can forgive our sins.
If you want to turn from your sins, say this to God:
Dear God, Ì believe Jesus died for me and now lives
again. Please come into my life and forgive my sins, so Ì
can have new life now, and then be with You forever.
Help me live for You as Your child. Amen. John 3:16
