A Child's Perspective

We just started an Amanda Bennett unit study on Easter today.  All four of the kids.  At one time.  Doing one family study, notebook-style.  I'll have to let you know how it goes - doing it with ages 12 to 6 was a little bumpy, but I'm hoping to work out all of the kinks by Friday!  Anyway, one of the questions they had to answer was this:  In your own words, describe who Jesus is.  I had to share their answers with you.

Leah, age 8:  He is the Messiah, Savior, and the Son of God.  He is lovely.
Eli, age 10:  He is God, Savior of all the earth.
Kristen, age 6:  He is powerful.  He is Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Always and Forever Love.  He is THE Jesus.  He is God.
Emma, age 12:  Jesus is perfect, powerful, merciful, humble, and loving.  He cares more about people than He cares about Himself.  He is God's One and Only Son.  He sits at the right hand of God and is waiting for the command to come back and deliver His people from this sinful world.  

What a treasure to have their thoughts on Him written down!
