It was our typical night as I got my son ready for bed. We would read a bible story and discuss it and concludes with him praying before retiring for the night. His prayer always, always starts with ‘Dear God’ then….
That night was no exception. He has this ability to recall bible stories with the peoples’ names including every minor detail (which may be not minor if it is in God’s word). I listened to him pray with my eyes closed and he was in such a deep conversation with God.
Then he said:
God – I am thankful you can move any mountains. To which I quickly shout out a big ‘amen’. He continued ‘God – you are awesome because you conquered the grave’. My amen was louder this time. And I thought to myself ‘whose child is this?”.
Well as you know, all good things must come to an end. I kissed him good night and as I was exiting the room, he yelled out:
Mom – what does conquered mean?
Before I could answer, he was singing a song by Hillsong which we had sung in church last Sunday. And the chorus goes like:
He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of Salvation
He rose & conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
