At age 7 one my sons made his commitment to Jesus! He was on the low branches of our tree in the front yard. He started asking me questions about heaven like “Will we be able to fly in heaven?”. I was amused by his questions because I don’t think adults think creatively enought about heaven.
I tried to answer his questions best I could without really answering them. I wanted him to use his imagination, which would probably be far grander than my boring answers. Even as grand as his imagination would be, still it wouldn’t compare to the grandure of heaven.
I asked my son if he knew what it took to make sure that he would spend forever in heaven with Jesus. With his answer of “What?”, I told him that he needed to ask Jesus into his heart to make Him king of his life. That’s all it took for him, he said “I’ll do that right now”. So, with a heart full of Joy I lead my son through a simple prayer of Salvation.
later on, I felt like it was just an occurance… no big deal, BUT WAIT! There isn’t any bigger deal. I didn’t want the evil one to steal the joy there is in this. So, I told family and friends so they could share in this joy with me. I do praise God that I have the blessing of 5 wonderful children!
My two oldest children have made the same decision in their life. I’m excited that my children know and understand the importance of Jesus in their lives!
