Jackson has been putting some pieces together theologically speaking. I love to watch God call our children. Anyone who doesn’t believe God speaks today hasn’t spent time with a thoughtful child. There are days you could knock me over with a feather with things that my children say to me concerning God and his overarching rule and reign.
About a year ago, he realized that not everyone decides to follow Jesus with their whole life. A few days ago he asked me, what happens to people who don’t follow Jesus when they die. Let me tell you, it was a fascinating discussion. By the end he was completely perplexed at why anyone would ever choose to not follow Jesus.
After our discussion he said “Mom, Satan walks around this earth taking on different forms, in order to trick people to follow him instead of God, like when he took the form of a snake in the garden.” I said yes, he said that is why we wear our armour to fight him. I again said “yes”. Then there was a long period of silence. I wonder what he is thinking about and what God is showing him. It keeps the mystery of our faith alive and exciting to me almost every day!
