Happy Birthday!

Michael celebrated his Christian "birthday" Thursday night!  He asked me to pray with him, so he could ask Jesus into his heart.  



Sometimes I think as adults we try to make the whole process difficult and lofty.  Our child approaches us and  we sit questioning:   Is our child ready to make this decision?  Did we pray the prayer just right?

Then, I'm reminded:

"Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."
Luke 18:17

"that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  
 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Romans 10:  9 and 13

It doesn't have to be hard!

Michael felt God speaking to his heart and he listened!  It's that simple!   It works for adults the same way!

  1. Congratulations! My 8 & 9 year olds are preparing to be baptized in the near future. This was something they pursued on their own, and it brings me such joy.
