New Birthdays

A few days ago Little Monkey Man announced during devotions that he needed to ask God to forgive his sins.  We talked for a few minutes and then we prayed together.  I think he understood what he was doing but I don't know if he'll ever remember it.  However, it is great to know he is thinking about such things!!!

If you ask him, he is likely to say he has Jesus "in mines heart!"  Amen little man. 

Last night as I was reading "Katy and the Big Snow" Snug started to cry.  Katy isn't that emotional of a story. Actually there is not a single sad thing in it.

He said he was upset because he didn't get to ask Jesus in his heart like LMM did.  I assured him he could do so at any time.  We talked for a few minutes and then he too prayed and asked Jesus to forgive his sins and to  "be his best friend".  I think he understands more than his brother as we've talked about it on several occasions.  He knows more about Jesus dying on the cross and rising again.  He also could tell you before that he had never asked Jesus to forgive him and that he knew he should-just didn't want to.

I am so very humbled to have been a small part of their salvation.  To God be the glory!

Mark 10:14b-16  "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."  And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

Romans 3:23
"For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"  (Emphasis mine)
Romans 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord"
John 3:3
"In reply Jesus declared, 'I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.' "
Romans 10:9-10
"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

That's wonderful! You are right, they probably won't remember but that is okay. We've had that exact discussion with our adult children.
