We go to church every Wednesday night. It’s my favorite night of the week. I absolutely love being in the house of the Lord but there was one Wednesday night in particular that was most special to me. I took my two children to church on Wednesday as usual.
After church, my children absolutely love hanging out for a little while and playing on the play ground. This Wednesday was no different. My son was playing on the slide and I was shooting baskets with my daughter. My son called me over to him and said, “Mommy, I need you to come here.” In my mind, I was wondering if he was a bit jealous of me shooting hoops with my daughter, but I didn’t say it out loud. I just went over to him and asked him what he needed (it is all of ten feet away, from the basketball hoop, in case you were thinking this was some long distance).
My son, just so you know just turned four years old. He is sweet, smart and can be a bit of a pistol.
Anyway, he gleefully asked me, “Mommy, do you want to hear the coolest thing about Jesus?”
I was a little surprised by his question, but of course I said, “Yes, tell me son, what is the coolest thing about Jesus?”
He said, “Did you know that Jesus died just for me Mommy and if I pray and tell him I am sorry for the bad stuff I did, He will forgive me and he wants me to give him my whole life and if I do He will live in my heart and won’t remember the bad stuff I do sometimes.”
I fought back tears of joy as he was saying this to me, and calmly said, “You are right son, that is the coolest thing.”
He said, “Yay mommy it is the coolest thing ever.”
I asked him, “Are you thinking of giving your life to Jesus?”
He said, “Yep and I am going to do it right now, but I need your help Mommy. I don’t know how.”
That night, sitting on the slide of my church, “I led my precious little boy in prayer to give his heart to Jesus.” When we got home from church, he excitedly ran up to his daddy and told him. “Guess what Daddy? I belong to Jesus now and He lives in my heart and He loves me sooo much!”
Jesus loves you too. The coolest thing about Jesus is while we were still sinners Christ died for us. The Bible says that when we surrender our lives to him, He forgives our sins and He adopts us as His sons or daughters.
