CHILD-RELATED TRUTH: The Bible is the Word of God.
Hello, young boys and girls! Today, we are going to talk about a special book. It is the Bible and it contains the word of God. The Bible is the word of GOD and is given to us by Him. God used people throughout history to share His message, but the words are truly God’s words. He communicated to people and told them what to say, so people took the paper and wrote things. But the ideas and meaning all came from God. And the Holy Spirit inspired the Word of God.
