Last night Drew made the most important decision of his life—He asked Jesus into his heart! It was a precious moment that brought tears to my eyes!
We were staying at Eddie and Kelly Reynolds’ house this week while in FL and we were all enjoying a fire in their fire pit. Drew really likes fire (as many of you know!) and we let him stay up late to enjoy it. The adults were talking about salvation and Drew was sitting on my lap and I could just see the gears turning in his mind. He asked me what being “saved” was and we talked about admitting to Jesus that you are a sinner and asking Him to forgive you of all your sin and asking Him to come into your heart. We talked a little more and it sounded like it was something he wanted to do so I told him to go talk to Daddy about it. He went over to Rob and told him he wanted to ask Jesus into his heart! So they went inside the house and talked more, Rob shared scripture and told Drew what he needed to do. Rob said Drew prayed all on is own—so precious! He was excited to tell everyone and we made lots of phone calls today.
I was especially struck last night about the big job Rob and I have as Drew’s parents to guide him in his newly professed faith. Our desire is not just to see our kids “saved” and that’s it. We want to see them develop into Christ-followers: people who love the Lord and want to serve them with all that they are. We hope they see us living our lives that way. Drew made the most important decision of his life last night. We were privileged to be a part of that decision! What a huge responsibility we have to guide him over the years in his journey of faith. We can’t wait to see the person he becomes in Christ!
