Teaching My Son About Salvation

I had a wonderful idea all of a sudden on how to explain my oldest son, Landon, about salvation. I grabbed a line paper, and a red pencil. I told him that the red pencil was Jesus' blood that he shed for us on the cross. I made several marks on the paper and said those were called SIN. We thought of several examples of what sin could be and marked them down!

I said that we could not go to Heaven with a dirty paper. God wants a clean paper.

So we took the red pencil and erased all the marks of "sin" off the paper. Now the paper was clean and white! I said, Jesus' blood washes away our sins! Now our paper is clean and we can go to Heaven!

    That is a simple explanation a child can understand. Good job. We need to try to make it easy for people to see and understand.

    It is such a great way of explaining little ones! I may have to borrow this from you :). So simple, but so clear.
    Praise God for Him erasing our sins!

    I love this!! I've been looking for easy to understand analogies and examples to share with my lil man--I can't wait to use this! Everyday I pray that God is preparing the soil of my son's heart to receive Jesus--and that he will serve the Lord all the days of his life!
