So the other night I thought Noah and I were having "the talk". You know, the whole salvation, asking Jesus into my heart talk. He's only 4 but really has a grasp of spiritual concepts and has a huge thirst to know about God. For a few nights, we would say our prayers, he would tell me "Mama" I want God to take all the bad things away. I'm sorry for the bad things." I would just tell him that we can always say we are sorry to God for the things we have done wrong. OK, understanding sin..... on the right track.
Well, the next morning at the breakfast table it came.
Noah :"Mama, I want God to save me."
Me: "OK Noah, here's what you do. Pray and tell God you are sorry for the wrong things that
you've done. Tell him you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins . And then tell
him you choose to follow him and let him lead your life.
Noah: "Can you do it for me?"
Me: "No, Honey, this is something you have to do for yourself. I can't do it for you."
Noah: "Dear God, Please save me....... because I don't know how to drive a milk truck"
WHAT!!!! Apparently we weren't talking about the same kind of "saving" !!! :) I had to go into the other room and just laugh. Oh well, at least he understands he can take anything to the Lord in prayer! :) My sweet boy.
