a few things jude has said lately...
we were visiting with friends & he looked at his friend hannah & said, "you know Jesus? He's really good."
he was talking to his aunt shan & said, "aunt shan, Jesus died on the cross for our sins."
last night during family worship he said, "when i be a daddy i will be a Christian & love Jesus."
after he said that mike asked him if he loved Jesus & jude said he did. then mike asked him why he loved Him & he said, "because i love him really much." mike asked him again why he loved Him & jude said, "because he died on the cross for my sins."
HE'S SEEING & LOVING OUR LORD!!!!!!!!!!!
jude was saying all that & it made me cry! we are seeing the fruit of our faithfulness & labor! i don't at all want to push him into a relationship with the Lord. i want him to understand what he is choosing & make sure he's putting all the pieces together. we complicate the gospel, but honestly... it is so simple.
we were lost in our sin, Christ came as a baby & lived a life on this earth, He then paid the debt for our sins by dying on the cross & then defeated death by rising from the grave showing that His death was completely sufficient to pay for our sins. & we may now claim Him as our Lord & accept His forgiveness & grace, & know & love Him for eternity!
"and because of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, 'let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.' " 1 Corinthians 1:30-31
He's so so good!
