Preschoolers and Salvation

Children have many great characteristics that enable them to readily gravitate towards God. Most important is their ability to believe. The younger they are, the better and readily their inclination to believe. When it comes to salvation, a child’s heart is a fertile field to believe in and receive Jesus as their Saviour.

Children And Salvation

When we think of it, belief is the only prerequisite to salvation. In Acts 16:31, we are told, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved (ERV).” The children may not fully grasp the concept of sin or the theology behind the sacrifice of Jesus to be saved, and they do not have to.

Teaching Children Memory Verses

The Psalmist said, “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You”- Psalm 119:11 (NKJV). Hiding God’s Word in your heart is what memorization is all about.

Note, this does not mean your children are born saved or have automatic salvation as a result: everyone must make a personal decision to be saved. When God enters into a covenant with an individual, it extends to his family. Read more >>>
