(The author of the following blog is an eleven year old boy, a member of our church, and the oldest of four siblings. While much of his time is given to his classical, Christian studies, he always finds time to enjoy the wonders of God's creation, like mud and tractors. He hopes to be a preacher when he is grown. He has written from his heart to encourage other children - and adults as well.)
I am a young Christian whom God saved about a year ago. I feel the need of telling you about the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only Son of God. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” The Lord Jesus Christ paid the wages of sin for all who turn from their sin and believe on Him. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” So, I would beg you to “seek Him while He may be found”, in the words of Scripture. I would beg you to think about your future – eternity. Where will you be; heaven or hell? If you are a professing Christian, then I would encourage you to “make your calling and election sure” (2 Peter 1:10).
