Please allow me a little brag post here. I'm just so proud of my 13 year old daughter that I wanted to share what she has been up to lately. She is in the 7th grade and goes to a public school. She was assigned a short persuasive speech and the teacher said that they should talk about something they are passionate about. So she wrote and delivered the following speech in class last week. I think she showed a lot of courage in doing this. Way more courage than I had in junior high!
First, Jesus loves me so much, that He actually died for me. He was sent to earth to be a sacrifice for our sins, the Savior of the world. He lived a perfect life as a human to give us an example of how to live, and to fulfill the duty that God gave Him. He absolutely never sinned and was full of love for everyone. He didn’t want to suffer, but He did because His love for us is so great. By dying on the cross, He made a way for us to be forgiven. All we have to do now is accept Him, and all of the benefits are ours!
