'Mommy! God's Outside!!!!

We have a little girl at our church by the name of Abigail or "Abby". Her mother, Amy is a girl scout leader. Amy holds her girl scout meetings in our fellowship hall at the church. One evening Amy was in the fellowship hall getting ready for the meeting, when all of a sudden Abby came running into the building shouting, Mommy, God is outside! I just saw him!" Amy stuck her head outside the door to see who was outside. When she did she saw no one at first. As she continued looking she saw a man standing on the sidewalk beside the building. But Amy recognized the man as our adult Sunday School teacher, Leroy. This isn't God she thought, it's only Leroy. The reason was unclear why he was at the church, but he was there. But little four year old Abby thought he was God. She had seen Leroy standing in front of people teaching God's Word every Sunday, so she thought that surely he must be God. Oh the precious mindset of innocent children. On Sunday night May 18th, the church had a family covered dish dinner. Right before they began to eat my wife was talking to Amy with Abby by her side. Well when Leroy walked into the fellowship hall Abby got really excited! "Mommy, God just walked in!!" Amy laughed and lovingly explained to her daughter that Leroy wasn't God, but that he is a Christian man who loves God just like we do. He is a Sunday School teacher who teaches us about God. She told Abby that God is in Heaven and that He is also in our hearts. I don't know how much of that that Abby understood, but in her little mind she was always watching Leroy up front teaching people. In her mind that was God up there teaching. When she saw Leroy, she saw God. Remember, what Jesus told Philip? "When you've seen me, you've the the Father!" In other words when you've seen me you've seen God. The Disciples saw the nature and characteristics of God by the way Jesus lived His life. They saw God's love and compassion through Jesus. I wonder when people look at us do they see God or do they see the devil. Do people see God in our lives? Are we letting our lights shine for Jesus? Are we as Christians showing God's nature and characteristics in our lives? If you had an Abby in your church or community and you came walking up the sidewalk, who would your Abby see coming? Would Abby say God or someone else? Let your light shine!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
