On Tuesday night, Chris Granberry was talking after we sang a song and mentioned that Jesus is God, and one of the boys sitting near me perked up and asked me, “Jesus is God? How can Jesus be God? I thought God is God?” I told the boy that Jesus is God and we’ll talk about it more during the story time.
I was excited because our lesson was about the paralyzed man whose friend brought him to Jesus through a hole in the roof. In the story, Jesus forgives the man’s sins, causing a controversy because only God can forgive sins. I don’t know if the child now believes that Jesus is God, but now he is exposed to the idea. It’s strange but normal out here for kids to grow up never hearing the idea that Jesus is God.
