So I spent almost two weeks alone at a cabin in northern Minnesota. The alone-time was good, a great part of my sabbatical — praying, Bible-reading, just hanging out — good time. But man, I’ll tell you this… I missed my family. So when I got this video hello from my girls…pretty cool… I WAS NOT FORGOTTEN!:)
After I watched it a couple of times…the thought came to mind…I wonder if this is how God feels when we finally come back and say hello, tell Him that we miss Him. I know that God is the most joyful being in the whole universe, all the time. But He is also the Father, and it brings dad joy when His kids come to Him. And we don’t even have to send a video!
Yeah, JI Packer once said that our greatest gift is not justification, but adoption. What we think of being made a child of God shows what we think of our faith.
