Sometimes, It’s All About me!
My grandson, Max, was the only one at school today; his brother and sister were sick. When I picked him up after school and asked how he was, he grinned from ear to ear and said, “I’m just GREAT! This morning, I had Mom all to myself.”
He proceeded to tell me about his extravagant morning of individualized attention. He said usually, in the morning, his mom is all about getting stuff ready and he gets cereal or something microwaved.
But this morning, with both his brother and his sister in bed with fevers, and his mom off work to take care of them, it was, and I quote, “all about Max.” He said “Mom was all over me. She was saying, ‘Max, do you need anything? Max how are you doing, are you ready to go yet?’”
He further revealed that breakfast this morning had been HOMEMADE FRENCH TOAST with hot syrup, not just syrup out of the bottle, served to him personally. He said he didn’t have just one piece, but as many as he wanted! He declined to say how many pieces that was.
As we turned into his neighborhood, he leaned back in the seat and sighed, “Tomorrow, if I’m still the only one well, I’m gonna ask for some bacon to go with my French toast–.” In today’s busy world, individual attention is always a special treat!
One of the many things that I love about being a Christian is that our God cares for us personally. Even though God’s grace is extended to all people, it requires an individual response to His invitation. Once I respond to this invitation for relationship, God’s Holy Spirit brings me intimacy and “God” becomes MY God.
We are created for personal relationship with God but satan does everything he can to spoil that intimacy with our Lord. When Jesus hung on the cross, He was paying the individual, personal price for my sin. It was, “All about ME.”
John 1:12 To all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me so much that you died on the cross to pay for my sins. Help me to fully understand how much you love me. I accept your payment for my sins and ask you to help me to live for you every day. Amen.
