Because GOD IS A PERSONAL SPIRIT, I can get to know Him better every day.
This may seem like such a simple concept, but it is the underlying
truth on which we base our understanding of God.
Bill Bright, Discover God
Teaching children that God is a Personal Spirit and how to have a relationship with Him gives them the ultimate gift: an eternal relationship with the All-Powerful, Perfectly Loving and Faithful God.
Did you know no other religion is founded on relationship? God is not an impersonal force or a statue, but rather a Personal Spirit kids can get to know better every day.
Without relationship, religion is only about behavior and legalism.
Teaching children to have a personal relationship with God gives them eternal hope.
Yes I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5, Discover God Bible, (NLT).
