I was thinking today about what a privilege it is to raise a child. We were given an incredible gift and it's our responsibility to tell her about the love the Lord Jesus has for us. I know I fail at this so often... yet there are moments in time, things she'll say that makes me feel good inside. Like a few days ago, when she asked me what we'll do when we're in heaven, before I got a chance to reply, she said: "Will we give the Lord Jesus a big hug?" I felt my heart could burst, I couldn't think of anything I'd want to do more. 1 John 4 - (v9) In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (v10) Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. (v19) We love Him, because He first loved us.
