Me: Max, when you asked your dad what the word 'creation' meant, was it because you heard this song playing on the CD? (The lyrics were, "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation...")
Me: So did you understand that when we believe in Jesus, God makes us into a new creation?
Max: But why does He make us a new creation?
Me: Well, before we believe in Jesus, everything about us is sinful. All of our thoughts and attitudes and actions are not pleasing to God. But when we believe in Jesus, He forgives our sins and we are a new creation. For the first time, we are able to be friends with God.
Max: But why did He die for us while we were His enemies?
Me: Because He loved us so much, that He wanted to make a way for us to be friends with God since we could never do it on our own. That's the Gospel.
Max: What's "The Gospel"?
Me: It's the good news about all that Jesus has done for us.
These are the types of conversations we have in our car virtually every day right now. Why? Seeds Family Worship. My friend Anna told me about these CDs, and they have been AWESOME for bringing God's word into every part of daily life for our little family. These CDs are well-produced, and all the songs are straight scripture set to music.
I can't tell you how many questions this music has prompted Max and Maggie to ask or how much scripture they have memorized in the few short weeks we've been listening to these CDs. Especially for Max, it's been really incredible to see him stitching together spiritual principles from different verses and songs. The kids love the music and sing right along word-for-word from their car seats. We've loved it so much, I thought I'd pass the tip along to all of you- I'm so glad Anna told us about it!
