Teaching Sovereign Grace to a Six-Year-Old (Part 3)

|



 

8. After Jesus took our sins away, He sent the Holy Spirit to give us eternal life by giving us a new spirit.
A. This is called regeneration (Tit 3:5).
B. The new spirit will live forever. After we die it will go to heaven to be with God (2Co 5:8).
C. The new spirit makes us able to believe in God and obey Him when we hear about what He did for us (1Co 2:12).
D. When we believe that Jesus is God and that He died for our sins and saved us, we can know that we have eternal life and that we will go to heaven when we die (Joh 5:24).
E. When we understand that, we must repent of our sins and do what God tells us to in the Bible (Mar 1:15).
F. To repent means to feel sorry for the bad things we have done and to decide to quit doing those things.

G. When we repent of our sins and believe in Jesus, we should get baptized (Act 2:37-38.
i. Baptism is when the pastor dunks you under water and brings you back up again.
ii. It is a picture of Jesus dying for our sins and being buried and rising again (Rom 6:4).
iii. When we are baptized, we publicly tell everyone that we believe in Jesus and that we are going to follow Him for the rest of our lives.
iv. Being baptized makes us a member of the church where we learn about God and worship Him for saving us (Act 2:41-42).

9. Someday Jesus will come back from heaven, and He will resurrect the dead and create a new earth where all of His people will be with Him forever (1Th 4:16-17; Rev 21:1-3).
