While some parents have an easy time answering their children’s questions about God, others feel ill-equipped. Some explanations are long and many are confusing. Below are simple explanations that make sense to toddlers or preschoolers.
Who is God?
God is the creator of the universe. He has always existed, and always will exist. He is perfect, holy, and good.
Where is God?
God is everywhere. He is in the air we breathe and in the water we drink. He is also in our hearts.
Why did God make us?
God made us to be happy and have a good life. He also made us to be His friends and to help Him take care of the Earth.
What does God want from us?
God wants us to love Him and obey Him because He loves us and knows what is best for us. He also wants us to love other people and take care of the Earth (the world) because it is His.
How can we know God?
God has revealed Himself to us through His Word, the Bible, and through Jesus Christ.
What happens when we die?
When we die, we will go to one of two places: heaven or hell.
How can I be sure that I am going to heaven?
Jesus Christ died on the cross to take away our sins and to give us eternal life. If we believe in Him and ask Him to forgive us, we will be saved.
What is the Bible?
The Bible is a book that tells us about God and what He wants from us. It also tells us about Jesus, who is the Son of God. Bible is the way God talks to us.
How do we talk to God?
We talk to God through the Bible, through prayer, and through worship. We can also talk to Him by singing songs that tell about His greatness.
How can we pray?
We can pray any time, anywhere. Just talk to God as you would talk to a friend.
Who is Jesus?
Jesus is our Savior. Because of His great love for us, He lived a perfect life and died on the cross for us. He did this so that when we died, we could be with Him in Heaven. He arose from the dead and now resides with God in Heaven.
How can Jesus help us?
Jesus helps us whenever we pray to Him and ask Him for help. He also helps us by being with us on Earth, through the Bible, and through the Holy Spirit.
What is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is God’s presence among us, assisting, guiding, and comforting us. The Holy Spirit is another name for God, just as Father and Son are. When we pray to Him, He helps us by giving us wisdom.
What is sin?
Sin is when we do not love God and obey Him, or when we do not love other people and take care of the Earth. Sin separates us from God.
How do I receive forgiveness for my sin?
When we become Christians, our sins are forgiven by the grace of God. We can no longer be separated from Him because of our sins.
Why is it important to go to Church?
We go to Church so that we can learn more about God and learn how to follow His ways. Going to Church is our way of thanking God for all the wonderful things He gives us every day. By going, we are also showing that we want to be part of a loving and caring community.
