“I Love Jesus!”
These heartfelt words were spoken by Max, our 4-year-old grandson, who joins us on Tuesdays, along with our other grandchildren.
Eleven years ago I vowed to God, to “boast in the LORD,” so the next generation in our family will come to know Jesus, love Jesus, and serve Jesus.
One way I do this, is to play Christian music.
While sitting at the table coloring and listening to a Christian CD, Max proclaimed, “I love Jesus, Nana.”
Tears filled my eyes as I praised God for His goodness. I said to Max, “I’m so glad you love Jesus. He loves you, too.”
Several days later, Max and Emeree were taking a bath at our house. Instead of watching their cousin’s football game, they had found the dirt on the baseball field more appealing! During bath time, big sister Ella pointed to a picture hanging in our hallway, adjacent to the bathroom. She sked Max and Emeree, “Who’s this?” Max and Emeree shouted, “It’s Jesus!”
I am thankful that Christian music and a picture of Jesus stimulate the hearts and minds of our grandchildren, drawing them close to God.
All of our grandchildren love “Bible-story time” in our home and theirs.
I praise God for the opportunity to share Jesus with Ella, Jack, Max, Julia, Emeree, and Jocelyn.
Facebook friends: May the Psalms draw you near to God.
“1 I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. 2 I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. 3 Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:1-3 NLT).
