Stealing is a sin. Sin means breaking God’s law. Maybe you have never stolen anything. But the Bible says that all have sinned and broken God’s law. Lying, fighting, hatred, selfishness, not obeying mummy and daddy and not loving God are all sins.
God hears and sees all the sins we do. The Bible tells us that our sins separates us from Him and will keep us from going to His beautiful home in Heaven someday.
Because God loves you so much, He sent His own perfect son Jesus to Earth to take the punishment for your sins and the sins of the whole world.
Jesus gave His life for you by dying on the cross. He was buried and after three days God made Him alive again. God has told us all this in the Bible (I Corinthians 15:3-4).
God also tells us that because of what Jesus did, we can have all our sins forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life- a new clean life that will last forever (John 3:16).
Even though we feel bad about stealing and want to go to heaven, we have to understand why we receive and accept Jesus as our Saviour.
If you would like to believe on Jesus and have eternal life today, you can ask Him to be your Saviour. He will forgive all your sins and be with you forever.
