Jesus came to save

When Jesus lived on earth, there were many people who wanted to be where He was and listen to what He said. But not all of those who came to hear really cared so much about changing their lives. So, Jesus looked for people who really wanted to follow Him and do what He spoke about.

More about the theme

In this week’s episode of “Children of God”, we meet a boy who wants to be popular but who does not always succeed. Sometimes he feels completely hopeless. But then one day he opens the Bible app and reads about the disciple Levi who also had it the same way. Levi experienced that Jesus cared for him and wanted to give him hope. Jesus said: “It is not the healthy people who need healing, but the sick. I have not come to save the righteous but sinners. ” This was the beginning of something new for the disciple Levi.
