Luke: "Mom, who are those people walking through our neighborhood with their Bibles?"

Andrew: "Oh, I know. They are telling people about God."

Me: "Well, how many Gods are there?"

Both boys: "There's only ONE TRUE GOD!" (children's catechism #10)

Me: "Well, those people are telling others of.....

Luke, interrupting: "...a pretend god?"

Me: "Well....yeah."

Andrew: "'Since we know the one true God, does that make us better than them, Mom?"

Me: "Certainly not. Our hearts are just as dirty as theirs...but what do we have that we could share with them?

Andrew: "Jesus! A savior!"

Me: "Do we deserve Jesus and his grace?"

Luke: "Nope, but he died on the cross for my dirty heart anyway, right, Mom?"

We had this conversation in the car tonight on our way to a Jews for Jesus presentation of the Passover meal. What a great reminder of God's love toward me! How encouraging to hear the gospel gripping my boys' heart, softening it, and molding them through the asking of questions. Praise God!
