I had SUCH an amazing conversation with Adit today at Azalea. Jesse and I were sitting at Azalea working on our computers when Adit runs in. He goes straight to the closet and asks, “Where’s the Bibles? I want to read about Isa (Jesus) on the cross.”
We pull on from the shelf and he flips through the pictures until he finds Jesus on the cross. Then we read Matthew together.
“Why did the Jewish people want to kill Jesus?” He asks.
“Because Jesus said he was the Son of God and they thought that was a lie and blasphemy.”
“But it’s TRUE! He is the Son of God.” Adit says earnestly.
“I know! That’s what I believe too. Do you remember what happens after they kill him?”
“They put him in a cave and put guards in front.”
“That’s exactly right. And who was his mama?”
“Yes, and when she came to see his body was he there?”
“Nope. He wasn’t. But this was all part of God’s plan. Jesus had to die to take away our sins. There’s no work we can do to make God love us more or less. Jesus did all the work for us. He loves us SO much.”
“Wow! That’s cool. Do you want to play tic tac toe?”
Praise the Lord! Please continue to pray for Adit and his spiritual journey to know Jesus better.
