My Moment and I…

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1 ESV)

I had an opportunity to share the Gospel with my dear brother, did I successfully plant a seed? I don’t feel confident that i did. How did it start? What was my opportunity? My nephew has started going to a Christian school now and has asked my brother questions beyond his years at 5 years young. I called my brother on Christmas Day just to tell him and the kids Merry Christmas and that I loved and missed them, when my brother called over his son, Ayden, to ask me the question that I feel my brother has been struggling with the most. The question that was asked with all innocence possible was, “If God created everything, then who created God”

WOW! right? What other 5 year is asking these questions? Is this question a testament of his youth or the possibilities of greatness within his tiny frame? Oh, what a joyous position I could have been in had the question been “Why did Jesus have to die?” or even “How do I know if I am saved and a Christian?” Those are easy right, but who created GOD? That is a question that has yet to be fully developed. My only answer was that no one created God. My answer to my brother was that we have finite minds and God is omniscient. Later on as I had more time to think about what had actually transpired in that moment I was greatly discouraged and researched more on the very question. A standard google search allowed me to hone in on various was to answer this question based on your audience i.e conversation with an Atheist vs a child.

I would like to think that given another opportunity I would be better equipped to answer wholly and bring the Gospel into the conversation. My sole apprehension was that I was speaking to my older brother my opposite.

What I know to be true is that God is moving in my family, and if it takes this “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger” Psalm 8:2 then Glory be to God above!
