With all the turmoil across our nation and around the globe, you and I need to shine the bright light of the Gospel more than ever before. CBN’s guiding mandate is from Matthew 24:14, to preach the Gospel in all the world—and that includes the world’s children.

We can clearly see Jesus’ love for children in this revealing story in the Bible:

One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could lay his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” And he placed his hands on their heads and blessed them (Matthew 19:13-15).

It is Jesus’ love that compels us to be very intentional about sharing the Good News with children. And when we reach kids through Superbook, we reach the whole family! Over the years we’ve seen many marvelous testimonies of children coming to Christ, praying for their parents and siblings, then bringing them to church and to faith. As Isaiah 11:6 says, A little child will lead them.

It is Jesus’ love that compels us to be very intentional about sharing the Good News with children.

The incredible task of producing, translating, and distributing these life-changing animated Bible stories is only possible because of your dedicated prayers and support. Not only are you leading boys and girls to Christ—but you’re also teaching them the timeless precepts of God’s Word so they can become committed followers of Jesus Christ. You’re equipping them to minister to others, to make disciples, and to come into full maturity as believers.

As you and I continue reaching out to the next generation with the truth of the Bible, Jeremiah 1:12 assures us that God is watching over His Word to perform it. May God bless you as you bless the children!
