Bunny Trail O ‘ Grace and Adoption (ii)
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.
