A big day for Caleb

Tuesday, March 3, 2009 7:40 PM Caleb prays to accept Christ as his Savior and Lord.

We were preparing for our AWANA club Cubbie class and reviewing his verse: "I go to prepare a place for you..." which begins yet another conversation about heaven and what it will be like. We go over a few verses in Revelation that highlight that there will be no more crying or pain in heaven (2 things Caleb can really relate to at this stage of his life). After some time he turns to me and says he wants to "go to heaven too!"

You know that AWANA curriculum is just really some of the best stuff out there for kids to hide Gods word in their hearts. I tell you for this whole year we have been tilling the seeds of God's word into Caleb's heart thru that Cubbie book. Thank you to you faithful AWANA leaders!

Caleb prayed a prayer of repentance ( he admitted to, and said he was sorry for, stealing some Cheerios earlier in the day) but he said thank you to Jesus for taking his punishment on the cross, and he asked Jesus to be his boss and come into his heart. Funny how easy it is to understand when you are 3. In this house you right well know what sin is, what punishment is and who the boss is. So not too hard for Caleb to figure out.

How about you? What will you do with this Jesus?
