My friend Roger sent the email to me concerning our friends Kevin and Lauren's son, Seth. I think this says it all.
Our friends, Kevin and Lauren have a four year old son, Seth, that is fascinated with “playing Church”. His bedroom is all set up as a sanctuary: a set of old speakers up front, a music stand as a podium, even some lamps as flood lights. He comes home from church and does it all again.
He’s the preacher! Last week he informed his parents that he needed a table for his church. “I need a table for Jesus’ dinner”. His parents didn’t react quickly enough, so Seth pulled an end table from the living room down the hall to his bedroom.
Finding his mother he told her he wanted to have supper for Jesus. She then understood that he wanted to celebrate Communion. He said he needed a plate of food; she brought some loaf bread broken into pieces. Then he needed a glass of blood…. She brought a glass of apple juice. At last he wanted his ten year old sister, Abby and both his parents to come to his church for supper with Jesus.
Seth ate a piece of bread dipped in the juice, then each of his parents took their turn. When Abby went to the plate she took two pieces of bread. With that Preacher Seth slapped Abby across the face exclaiming, “you’re eating too much of Jesus!”
There is a lesson in all of this, our Savior’s gift of forgiveness and life is more than enough for every person that has ever lived or ever will live… and yes, He welcomes those who want more of Him.
