I am revisiting this post because I wanted to actually include the verses that can be used to teach your children about why Jesus is God. So, if you have already read this post, you can just scroll to the bottom for the list. If you haven’t read it, well…you should just read it because I’m such a fabulous writer! (I’m just kidding, I hope you know!)
It seems that driving creates great opportunities to talk with my children! I listen to them. They listen to me. I love them so much and as long as I don’t belittle what they say, they will feel free to discuss anything that comes to their mind.
For some reason, though, talking about Jesus with them takes a bit more effort. Am I the only one that feels this way? I am passionate about my Saviour and want to share him with the same effort I have when it comes to talking about books! (Which is none. I love me some books!!).
Why is it then, that I feel like I have to make more of an effort? I think part of it is that Satan doesn’t want me to talk about him. He would rather that I think I have to be in a certain setting to do so. Because if I push Jesus into a little “this-is-the-only-place-where-I-can-talk-about-you” box, I will have successfully communicated to my children that this is a religion, not a relationship. It will become a list of do’s and don’t's. It will become…boring.
So, in our car ride, I decided we would learn a Bible verse. I first asked them if they believed that Jesus is God.
Well, of course, they do!
“But, do you know any verses that say he is?”
“No,” they couldn’t think of any.
“Okay. Let’s learn one!” I said. And so it began. We are learning the verses that state clearly that Jesus is God. It was a wonderful opportunity to explain that we can say Jesus is God to someone else, but if we don’t have a Bible verse to back it up, it won’t matter to that person. The Bible is that powerful!
If you want to join me on this journey of teaching Jesus to our children, all you need to do is click on the links and it will take you straight to the verses! Easy peasy!
There are more verses, but I think this is a good start! If you want to read more about the other verses that teach Jesus’ deity, go to Got Questions.org. It’s an excellent resource for any questions you may have. (This site is where I obtained the verses I included in this post.)
I would love to hear how you teach Jesus to your children! The more ideas we get, the better!
