Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
So it's clear that Jesus calls young people to Himself. He isn't a God who waits to take notice of someone until they reach a certain age—Christ longs for all souls, young and old, to draw near to His heart.
This is why we love receiving gratitude emails from amazing kids! Time and time again, children have expressed that owning a Bible has helped form an intimate relationship with their Saviour. Whether they received a Scripture at camp, school, or a church-run program, it's exciting to know that His gospel is transforming young lives.
Just take a look at what 11-year-old Destiny had to say! So in love with Jesus, she was eager to express how she felt holding her personal Scripture for the first time! Equipped with God's Word, this young believer is more enthusiastic than ever about deepening her walk.
My name is Destiny and I am a grade 5 student at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Napanee, Ontario. Thank you so much for the New Testament that your organization recently gave me. It was very nice of you. I will always remember your kindness! I will continue to read my New Testament!
