"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." ~1 John 1,14
We were all seated together.
"Who needs Jesus?" I asked. And I raised my hand.
I looked and saw other little hands thrusting themselves into the air after mine.
"We all need Jesus, don't we? None of us can be righteous by our own merits." Just the day before we had read that if we could be saved by doing the law, then Christ died in vain. We all need Jesus.
"Let's read the Word."
And we read. And His Word is alive and active.
And it is good. Just the Word opened and expounded.
It is good to see Mama and Daddy humbled before it. It is good to see us excited about grace and unearned forgiveness in Jesus.
It is good for children to know that their parents need Jesus. And it is good when they know that they need Jesus too.
It is life.
Do you need Jesus today?
May God richly bless you as you lead little hearts home.
