Bunny Trail O ‘ Grace and Adoption (ii)

image

In  church today a older gentleman shared  a snippet  that  follows or strengthens a post I wrote  last week.

The gentleman told how he had been at an early morning prayer meeting. When it was over he had a couple  hours  before church. A few people asked if he wanted  to go out  and get something to eat and spend some time together. In his head he heard a small  voice saying  “but I want to spend  some time with you.” He listened to the voice  and went  solo to McDonalds. After eating he went and sat in a parking lot in his car.  He prayed asking “but God I don’t get it, why would  you want to spend time with me?” The response he he heard was “you don’t get  it that’s correct. Think of your grandson Cooper, does Cooper have to ask that question? He gets it because it is what it is.”

Sonship in a right relationship has no need to ask “why do you  want to be with me.”  Children understand the relationship with  their parents. They know they are loved and accepted without having to be told.

With that personalize it,  and internalize  that epiphany. The God of the universe created you not for  servants or minions, he created  us  to be sons and daughters.

He sent his Son to bridge that connection or transformation from just an organic being to an eternal son.

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
