Being a father is a wonderful occupation. One of the perks is being able to witness how God works with each of my kids. Tonight my son McAuley was talking with his mom about his recent revelation. Here is my wife’s account of the conversation:
McAuley had a revelation tonight: “God knows everything! He knows what we will do tomorrow, what we’re going to do in our future, when our light bulbs will burn out, when stars will explode…and most importantly, He knows if we are REALLY Christians.” McAuley stopped after he said all that and added… “That kindda makes me nervous mom, because I really believe I am saved, but some days I don’t feel like it and sometimes I don’t act like it. I can be abnoxious sometimes….” It’s an awesome thing when we stop and think about God’s great mercy and His grace. We will never be perfect on this earth….but Salvation is only by His grace and not by anything we can do or feel…pretty awesome thought. Whether you believe it or not, your life is in His hands.
God is making Himself know to a seven year old. Got to love it.
