God's Only Forgotten Son
Not For Sale
Author requests article critique
I was sitting in the McDonald’s at our local Wal-Mart having lunch with my preschooler when he spontaneously decided to quote John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only forgotten Son….” My initial reaction was “I don’t think God has forgotten Jesus,” but as I pondered his innocent mistake, I felt convicted that I often do.
How many times have I faced struggles, or tried to reach goals on my own power? How many times have I made important decisions without asked for God’s guidance? Worse yet, how often have I attempted ministry without saturating it in prayer?
It is easy to say that we are Christians, schedule church activities into our days, and even keep up with the Spiritual Disciplines and still forget Christ as we go about our day. Responsibilities, activities and other distractions demand our attention and take our focus off of Jesus as we tackle life, so often without Him.
My son did not realize his mistake in his memory verse, but it points out a mistake that I make all too often. While God did not forget Jesus, I do. The good news is that God, knowing that we would forget about His Son all too often, still loved us enough to give “His only begotten Son, that whomsoever believeth in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” (KJV)

The devotionals that speak to me the most are the short ones incorporating an everyday human experience that points us back to the Lord. And, oh, how this one hit home with me today. Thank you. This is excellent in all aspects.

Please keep writing those devotionals, Joanney. This one is very good, and carries a message we must not take lightly, nor ever forget. Pour your heart and soul into them as the Lord leads, and share them, that all might understand the Truth.
You will be blessed, and your work is certain to be a blessing to others.
