Explaining the Gospel to children and beyond

Pulpit Magazine shares a brief article on Explaining the Gospel to a Child
Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Remember that repetition and restatement are especially helpful. Give the gospel simply and briefly, but don’t assume the first positive response means they got all the truth they need to know.
  2. Use Scripture and explain it clearly. Even with children, God’s Word is the seed that produces life (1 Peter 1:23).
  3. Understand the inherent danger in any outline or prefabricated presentation
  4. Finally, remember that the issues in salvation are the same for a child as for an adult. The gospel is the same message for every age group.

Helpful reminders for parents, Sunday School teachers and youth workers.
