What does it mean to be saved?

Out of the mouths of babes! I was helping with our 5th and 6th grade celebration tonight when one of the kids asked the question, “What does it mean to be saved?” I know she was serious and I think the rest of kids wanted to hear the answer. They can be so inquisitive. Our leaders tried to answer the question quickly but I think it requires and deserves a much longer answer. At the time we were running late for our final activity of the evening. I must admit that I thought briefly about doing a brain dump of everything I know about Christianity. Instead I let the leaders do the talking and let the conversation end naturally. Tomorrow I will talk with the leaders and coach where necessary. She will get her answer and hopefully much more.
