Amy's Bible

"What's wrong?" Amy asked her mom, who stood in the bedroom doorway.

"Grandpa's sick," Mom replied. "Daddy and I are going to take him to the hospital."

Amy ran to her grandparents' room. She sat on the bed and took Grandma's hand. "Is Grandpa going to die?"

I don't know sweetheart," Grandma said. "But if he does, I know he'll go to Heaven. I'm thankful God loves us and has made a wonderful place for us to live forever."

"Grandma," asked Amy, "will I go to Heaven when I die?"

Amy's grandma gave her a huge hug. "You will if you ask Jesus to be your Savior. Look in my Bible with me. I've used it to tell many children how to go to Heaven. I'll show you, too." She turned the pages of her Bible as she spoke.

"This verse says that God always does what is best. And here's a verse that explains that we have all done wrong things called sins. We deserve to be punished. But this verse says that Jesus died to wash away our sins so we can live with Him...forever."

Amy bowed her head and prayed, "Dear God, please forgive for the wrong things I've done. Thank You, Jesus, for coming to save me. I accept You oh Lord as my Savior. Amen."

"Here sweetheart." Grandma handed her Bible to Amy.

"I want you to have this."

From that day on, Amy read it every morning and prayed,

Dear Jesus, I want to tell other children how much You love them, just like Grandma told me.

"God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life." John 3:16

Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior?
How would you help someone else except Jesus as their Savior?
Also read 2 Corinthians 5:15 and 17


(Got it from a book. "Walking with Jesus, One step at a Time")
