JESUS & Nic

I shared with you previously that I am doing a series of stories with preschoolers about Jesus. I can't imagine anything more important to talk with kids about.

What if I told you I was friends with the most important person in the entire world? 

It’s not your mom or your dad. It’s not me. It’s not even the president of the United States. It’s Jesus, but many people don’t know that.

What if I told you that I knew the most important facts in the entire world? 

This is a little bit harder because there are lots of important facts in the world, like how long to bake a cookie so it doesn’t get burned. Or how to learn how to ride a bike so you don’t fall down and get hurt. Or how to treat one another. That’s important, but it’s not the most important.

The most important fact is that God sent His Son Jesus to the Earth.

What if I told you I had the biggest and best news…ever?

Have you ever had really good news that you couldn’t wait to tell someone? I have a really hard time keeping secrets. The best news ever is that God loves you. That’s why He sent Jesus to the Earth.

This year we are going to learn and memorize John 3:16. Some of you may have already memorized that. But it’s important to learn it because it’s something Jesus said.

Jesus was having a conversation with a guy named Nic. (His name was Nicodemus, but we’ll just call him Nic.) Nic was a teacher, but he was kind of confused about some very important facts. So Nic was asking Jesus some questions. And that’s when Jesus said,

For God so loved the world
That he gave his one and only son
That whoever believes in him
Shall not perish
But have eternal life. ~John 3:16

That’s the biggest news ever, which has the most important fact ever, told by the most important person…ever!
