Can Children Be Saved

Yes! The Lord Jesus said so. “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).

Jim Moritz was suddenly taken to Glory at the age of four. He grew up under the constant hearing of the Gospel in word and music.

His parents, Pastor and Mrs. Fred Moritz, dedicated him to the Lord before he was born. He knew John 3:16 before he was two years of age.

On a Saturday night during evangelistic meetings, the evangelist  and Pastor Moritz were still at the church after the service when Mrs. Moritz phoned and said, “Your son says he wants to become a Christian.”

The pastor and evangelist tried to talk to the boy that night, but he was very timid and just went to his room.

After the series of meetings, Jim began to speak of having been saved. His father said, “Jim, when were you saved?”
His dad thought because Jim had raised his hand during the meetings that he might have the false impression that he was saved. But the boy replied, “Dad, when the evangelist was here in our church, I went into my room one night, and I sat down by my bed and asked Jesus Christ to save me and be my Savior.”

After that, whenever his dad or anyone else would question him about his salvation, he would say, “Dad, I told you when I was saved. You remember, don’t you?” Jim always had clear answers when anyone questioned him about salvation.

Later that year, Jim came to the door with a little friend and said, “She wants to be saved.”
Jim’s father led the little girl to Christ. She was saved as a result of Jim’s witness.

After Jim’s sudden home-going, his testimony lived on, and his parents know of at least eight who have been saved since then because of Jim’s salvation and his witness.

How important it is that little children are taught the Gospel. How wonderful that even little children can witness.

The plan of salvation is so simple that even a child can understand it.

Yes, anyone, young or old, who “believes in” Christ has eternal life!

Our Lord said, “He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47).

In Matthew 18:2, we learn that our Lord loves little children, for He “called a little child unto Him.”

Also, little children can learn to love Him, for when the Lord called this little one to Him, the child came. The little boy was not afraid of the Lord; he did not run from Him—he came to Him!

Now read verse 6 again, and let these words sink into your mind, “these little ones which believe in Me.”
Yes, thank God, little children can be saved. I was saved at my mother’s knee when I was four years old.
