Maggie Wanted Jesus in Her Heart

Tonight at dinner, Maggie accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior.  It was a very special moment for the entire family.

She’s been asking lots of questions for the last few weeks and really asking lots of questions this week.  She and I talked about God almost all day today in one form or another.  We’ve talked a lot about what a sinner is, why Christ needed to die for us, and what an amazing gift God gave us in His Son. 
She really seemed to understand the analogy that Christ took the “consequences” of our sin. She knows that she has consequences when she does something wrong, so Christ taking her consequences away so she could be with God forever made sense to her.
Once she could answer all the questions about what the hard words mean, we pulled out the literature piece the church gave us when we went to Jump Start (a very cool thing to have by the way).  We walked through that, making sure she understood each step.  Then, she read the prayer at the end and asked Jesus to be her Savior.  
David and I were both kinda teary, but oh so very proud of her.  She is an amazing child of God. I can’t wait to see what He has planned.
