J Summary (5Y5M18D) - In My Father's House...

This evening, we read a story about a boy called Daniel. Daniel's friend's dad said, "Daniel, I encourage you to read God's Word every day. Why don't you begin by reading the Gospel of John." In the story, we also read this Bible verse:

"Do not let your heards be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will also come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." - 2 Corinthians 8:9

J said that the picture in the book that the boy was reading looked like my Bible, and he went to our bedroom to fetch the Bible. Inspired by the story, I then start by reading John 1:1-3 from my own Bible.

J prayed, "Dear Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for me, forgiving my sins and preparing a place for us in heaven." I want to remember his prayer.

I asked J if he remembered the time he accepted Jesus into his heart. He said yes. I asked him if he remembered how old he was. He said he was 3 years old. I asked him if he remembered where. He said it was in his room. I asked him if he remembered the story I read to him at that moment, and he said it was Jesus death on the cross and his ressurection from the Rhyme Bible and he went to bring me that Bible. He could remember all. This gave me assurance that he did not just accept Christ without quite knowing it, when he was 3 years old.

I held this close to my heart, thanking God for giving me a glimpse into his heart and faith. I thank God for His faithfulness and for my continued trust for the heart of J to Him.

Incidentally, recently, I was reading a book about Einstein and came across the concept of spacetime. I have been reading up on the universe and spacetime. As I read this verse, the thought of universe came to my mind. If the universe created by God can be so huge and is still expanding, heavens can't be less limited than the universe. I used to wonder how it could be that the heavens could house so many people who passed through the centuries. The incomprehensible size of the universe give us a glimpse of the heavens, and makes it possible.

This is the book I read to J:
