|Benjamin's Art Work|
15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:15
This Resurrection season brought the wonder of telling a young child the Greatest Story Ever Told...the Gospel. Age six brought a new understanding as I walked my youngest to the empty tomb, fulfilling the plan of redemption started in the garden.
I don't have a theological degree. I would look very ignorant in most spiritual debates, even those argued in blog world. However, I do have a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is this 46-year-old relationship I share with my children.
It never gets old to see God soften their hearts and their receiving the truth of His redemption plan.
|Benjamin Made a Resurrection Set....he did the actions each day... from the cross to the grave to the resurrection.|
I have placed the truth before all my children...their relationship with or without Christ is theirs, I can't force mine on them. I am just instructed to share the Gospel.
Benjamin set the table one evening with pieces from the story at each person's plate. I took his hint and brought the idea again to our Easter lunch. We all gathered around the table to recall the last week of our Savior, to partake of the Lord's Supper and to rejoice in His resurrection and the truth of His return.
May we never grow so old and so complicate the Gospel that we forget that Christ said we were to receive the kingdom like a little child.
