How can the concept of the Holy Trinity be simplified for your child? Well, the Bible App for Kids has recreated different New Testament stories that will introduce your child to the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit in an interactive way!
For starters, in the story Into the Clouds, your child will hear Jesus say, “Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” This will clearly explain to your child that ours is a triune God. In addition, the different stories will also reveal to your child that each of these entities possesses specific characteristics. Let’s take a look!
1. God, the Father:
This app has three stories – The Beloved Son, In the Garden, and It Is Finished – to help your child understand the nature of God, the Father. Let’s see how each of these stories throw light on the first Godhead within the Trinity:
The Father is a separate entity within the Trinity: Your child will hear God declare His love for His son, Jesus, in the story The Beloved Son. This will show your son or daughter that the Father is an individual entity.
The Father was in communion with Jesus: The story In the Garden, will show your kid how Jesus prayed to the Father and asked Him for direction. This will show your child that the Father and Jesus shared a close relationship when the latter walked on earth.
Forgiveness comes from the Father: Finally, in the crucifixion story It Is Finished, your child will hear Jesus call out to the Father when He says, “Forgive them, Father.” This will help your child understand that forgiveness comes from the Father.
2. Jesus, the Son:
With 15 Bible stories that concentrate on Jesus’ life, this app clearly communicates the concept of Jesus as the Son – the second Godhead within the Trinity. Let’s dig a little deeper:
There is a divine relationship between the Father and the Son: In the story The First Christmas Gift, your child will repeatedly hear references to Jesus as God’s son, when the angel appears to Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds. This will help him or her understand that Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus was human and divine: The story A Test in the Desert will show your child that Jesus was tired and hungry after fasting for 40 days. This will reveal the human side of Jesus to your little one. On the other hand, the many miracles of Jesus in this app will reveal His divine nature to your child. For instance, your kid can touch the screen and watch Jesus heal a paralysed man, revive Jairus’ daughter, feed the 5,000 out of five loaves and two fish, and much more!
Jesus is God: This app is loaded with examples where Jesus declares that He is God. For example, your child will hear Jesus tell Satan, “Do not put the Lord God to the test,” when he or she reads the story A Test in the Desert. Moreover, in the story It is finished, your child will hear Jesus tell Pilate, “I am King.” This will help your son or daughter grasp that Jesus is God.
Jesus intercedes for us: Your child will hear Jesus cry out, “Forgive them, Father!” when He was nailed to the cross, in It Is Finished. This will show your child that Jesus not only acts as a mediator between us and the Father, but also intercedes for us.
3. The Holy Spirit:
The app has three New Testament stories that shed light on the Holy Spirit. Let’s take a look at the truths that these stories will reveal to your child:
The Holy Spirit is God’s gift to us: The story Into the Clouds will show your child that Jesus had promised His people the gift of the Holy Spirit. In the story God’s Wonderful Gift, your child will see that Jesus fulfilled His promise by sending the Holy Spirit upon His followers.
The Spirit lives within us: In the story God’s Wonderful Gift, your little one will hear Peter say, “He will forgive your sins and give you the Holy Spirit.” This will help your child understand that when he or she accepts God as the saviour, he or she will receive the Holy Spirit.
God’s spirit guides us: When your child reads the story A Test in the Desert, he or she will learn that the Spirit led Jesus into the desert during His fast. This will show your child that God’s spirit will guide him or her as well.
The Spirit enables us: In the story God’s Wonderful Gift, your son or daughter will witness how the Spirit enabled Jesus’ followers to testify God’s love in different languages. In addition, the story The First Christmas Gift will show your child that the Holy Spirit enabled Mary to conceive supernaturally. These two examples will show your child that the Holy Spirit is very powerful.
The Holy Trinity is one of many big biblical concepts that the Bible App for Kids simplifies for children. Your child can also learn about the Armour of God and Fruit of the Spirit through this app.
