Almost every day Paul’s teachers send home a report that quickly lets them summarize his daily activities. At the bottom they note something he may have learned or accomplished that day as a ‘point of pride.’
Last Wednesday he came home with a simple note:
His bus aid also serves in his class and told me the same thing, adding, “I felt like I was at a revival!”
Who knows, maybe he was!
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8 ESV)
My Paul needs help with almost everything. And though we’ve met some really fine Christians at his school, I’m sure there was no prompting from any of them for a hymn.
But when God says, “tell them about me, Paul” – he sings!
