Christian Child Charity

QUESTION: Christian Child Charity – Helping children overcome life’s challenges.

ANSWER:

A good Christian child charity will do much more than provide the basic necessities to children. While it is important to show compassion to the less fortunate, it is even more important that each child hear the good news of salvation. By opening the doors for children to hear the gospel message, a Christian child charity will also give children an opportunity to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

When selecting charities for children, be diligent to make sure the charity presents the gospel to the children. The gift of salvation is better than any tangible gift that a charity can provide.

Sponsoring a child is a great way to fulfill Mark 16:15: "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” When you sponsor a child, you are allowing God to work through your generous gift and plant a seed in a child’s life -- a life who may never have heard the gospel otherwise.

An excellent example of a Christian charity organization is Compassion International. Your tax deductible donation of about $1.00 per day connects the child you sponsor with a loving, church-based sponsorship program. This Christian child charity provides:
  • Health care and supplemental nutrition
  • Educational opportunities
  • The chance to learn critical life skills
  • Opportunities for safe recreation
Most importantly, sponsoring a child will allow the child you sponsor to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the past year, over 100,000 children made commitments to Jesus Christ through the ministry of Compassion International.

We encourage you to visit the site to view photos of children who are waiting for a sponsor. You can search for a child by age, country, gender, or region. You can even search for a special needs child, a child living in an HIV-affected area, an orphaned child, or a child who has been waiting for a sponsor for over 6 months. In addition, you can search for children who have the same birthday as you -- or perhaps the same birthday as your child or a relative. Take action today and sponsor a child online.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
