What is the plan of salvation for kids?

Here's the answer:

The plan of salvation is the good news about Jesus! He died for your sins, was buried, and rose (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

Before anyone can accept Jesus, they have to understand that they are in need of being saved. Every person in the world needs salvation by Jesus because we have all sinned (Romans 3:23). Sin is anything that goes against God, such as lying, cheating, or stealing. Sin is disobedience to God and we have all disobeyed God during our lives. The Bible tells us that there is punishment for sin and the punishment is death (Romans 6:23).

The good news is that God sent His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins and by believing that Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose again, you can have salvation and forgiveness of sins (John 3:16)! We cannot save ourselves from our sins and nothing we could ever do could cause us to earn our way into Heaven (Ephesians 2:8-9). Only by Jesus dying for us could payment for our sins be made.

Every person has the option of accepting the plan of salvation that God has shown through Jesus. When we believe Jesus died for us, was buried, and rose again, we have accepted God’s plan of salvation and we are now part of the family of God. If you believe that Jesus died for your sins, was buried, and rose again, then you now have eternal salvation and you will live forever with God in Heaven! Welcome to the family!

If you want to follow Jesus, the one way to heaven, you can pray a prayer like the one below. Praying can’t give you eternal life—only God can do that. God can save you by giving you faith in Jesus. The prayer is a way to show God that you’re turning in faith to Jesus.

"Dear God, I'm sorry for going my own way and sinning against You. I deserve to die for my sins and be separated forever from You. But I believe Your perfect Son, Jesus, took the punishment for sin by dying on the cross. Then He rose from the dead, showing that He won the victory over sin and death. I now turn from my sin and trust Jesus as my Savior from sin. I will follow the Lord Jesus now!"
