Questions from Kids (2)

A Character story about diligence.

Last, I began to share some of the almost 50 questions asked during the junior winter retreat at the Hampton Bible Camp several years ago. The questions are in their own words, with answers from the Bible.

Does the Bible have everything in it about Jesus we need to know?

The Bible does not tell us all there is to know about Jesus. It does not tell us how tall He was, what colour hair He had, the tone of His voice, His birthday, the names of His sisters, etc. Though the Bible does not tell us what Jesus looked like, it does tell us how He acted. That is much more important any way. You and I could not change our height, if we knew how tall Jesus was, but we can change our heart so we are not as loving as Jesus was. The Bible does tell us everything we need to know about Jesus right now. The Lord wants us to be like Jesus in His character. Some day we who have accepted Him as our Saviour will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is. I John 3:2

How do you remeber all of the bible storyes?

I read them over and over. There are always new lessons to learn from the Bible.

How did God get made?
Where did God come from?

It is very hard for us to understand the idea that God never had a beginning. No matter how far back you go, God always was, and, in fact, God was just the same. We are told in Psalm 90:2 "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God." We are also told in Malachi 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I change not." Isn't it wonderful to know that God us just the same today, as He told us He was in the Bible many years ago?

Is it possible that the stable Jesus was born in is still standing?

No, because these buildings were made sometimes of mud brick and others of wood that will not last 2000 years. Furthermore, the land of Israel has had many wars since Jesus was born. The city of Jerusalem has been destroyed and rebuilt at least 17 times! I think that sometimes God allows buildings like to this to pass away so that we worship Him, and not the building.
