What Jesus Did
(through the eyes of an only child)
by: Prof. Sandee

We often hear about what God did by letting Jesus come. We hear how God, as Father, gave His only Son. (John 3:16) But have you ever considered this from Jesus stand point as an only child.

I am an only child. Many of you out there are an only child. Some of you can remember being an only child until your sibling was born. (What were your thoughts at that time?) Some of you may wish you were an only child.

I have to admit I enjoy being an only child.

One day as I was driving down the road, I was praising the Lord and thanking God for sending Jesus and thanking Jesus for coming. In my spirit I saw Jesus, God's only Son. I saw Jesus and God in perfect union. Jesus didn't have to share God with anyone. It was God and Jesus. And Jesus said, "Yes, Father, I will willingly give up being your only Son so you may have many Sons and Daughters."

I thought of myself, me, who doesn't like to share my mom with anyone. I said, "Jesus, thank you for what You did, I couldn't have done that. I like being an only child too much. What You did, Jesus, now seems so much more awesome."

So think about that the next time you hear someone talking about what Jesus did.

(I share my mom with lots of people now. If Jesus can share His dad, I can share my mom.)

John 3:16 (KJV)
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
