Well, tonight Luke had a lot of questions.
He asked why one thief went to heaven and the other didn't.
We had been talking about Jesus and the reason why He was born.
He was born to die.
Usually, Luke loses interest in lengthy discussions.
Tonight, he was the one asking the questions.
After talking for about 30 minutes, he said, "I asked Jesus into my heart today in the playroom."
I couldn't believe it.
Ben couldn't believe it.
Why couldn't we believe it? We have been praying for his salvation since before he was born.
Benjamin said,"He sure did. I told him that he needed to ask Jesus into his heart."
We were even MORE astonished.
Ben and I weren't sure how to take it all. Did he really understand what happened? Or was he just doing what his big brother told him to do.
Benjamin follows with the fact that he watched Luke with his eyes open as he prayed. He also said that Luke made no buts about it. :)
We asked Ben if he prayed and Luke repeated. He said no and again admitted to praying with his eyes open as he watched Luke. :) Luke said with a HUGE grin, "I said Jesus, come into my heart."
We explained forgiveness and the joy of coming to faith in Christ. He was precious. He can't quit talking and it's after 9:00. I can hear them in their room. What a sweet moment for my boys. As Benjamin said, "This is so happy."
Thank you Lord for opening two of my boys eyes and hearts to see you and their need of a Savior. May they know all the more the magnitude of Your grace and the depth of Your love. Continue to use them in each other's lives to be as iron sharpening iron.
