Rebekah’s thoughts

      I was listening this morning to an album of songs that are all based on scripture verses. One of the songs was based on John 3, about seeing the kingdom of God.  Rebekah was eating breakfast, and then said “Mom, I don’t understand something.” She said ,”I know that I have been born again through baptism, but I don’t see (fingers pointing to her eyes)  the kingdom of God. Why not?” I answered that she can “see”   the kingdom of God. And then tried to explain it to her.

      I asked her a few questions to lead her along the path to understanding.

I said, “Where are you going when you die?”

She said, “Heaven”.

I then said,”You can see the kingdom of God, because you know this and can share it with others.

I then asked her if she could understand the Bible lessons from Sunday School.

She answered, “Yes, I can understand most of them.”

I said that this is another way to “see” the kingdom of God. 

     And then it was over. A three minute exchange that makes an eternal difference. Thank you Lord, for these wonderful opportunities.

Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3

Jill, you excel at teachable moments! I know. One could argue that all moments are teachable whether we know it or not. But seizing the moment is what you do well!

I'd love if you shared the name of the CD with the songs. Sounds wonderful.

Life is a schoolhouse isn't it?
