Two Wednesday's back as we were driving back from church, I overheard a conversation between Philip and his six year old sister, Sara. He questioned her about her own salvation. The conversation went something like this:
P: Sara, did you ask Jesus into your heart?
S: Yeah, yeah...I know what that means.
P: Sara, you have to repeat what I say.
S: Ok, you have to repeat what I say.
P: Sara! I'm serious. Pray like this, Jesus...
P: Please come into my heart.
S: Please come into my heart.
P: I want you to live in my heart forever.
S: I want you to live in my heart forever.
P: And never ever leave my heart.
S: And never ever leave my heart.
P: In Jesus's name..amen
S: In Jesus's name..amen.
Well, I couldn't believe what I heard. This is the first time I've heard him share salvation with anyone. I had shared Philip's evangelization with one of his uncles and his response was, "Well, Philip needs to get his own household saved, then he will begin throughout the world." I pray so. Philip has tried to speak to one of his classmates about Jesus but that child, according to Philip, wanted to believe in his own "false god."
I have heard of young children getting up on the pulpits in other countries and sharing the Gospel with the people. God is moving in the hearts of these young ones. Pray for them. Out of their mouths the Lord has perfected praise and ordained strength. I believe it is also one of the signs that in the last days, the young ones will prophesy. May the Lord speak to your young people. And may God help each of us to do our part also in these last days to fulfill God's ultimate plan.
God bless you!
