A Love Moment
I held my daughter close on my lap, as I watched my husband hold his white haired Dad’s hand, while he sat beside his hospital bed having a heartfelt conversation.
My husband spoke loud and clear. His Dad answered slowly, and yes, he did believe that Jesus Christ died for his sins.
“That’s the best gift you could ever give me, Dad,” my husband smiled.
In response, his Dad brought their two clasped hands to his face, and gave my husband’s hand a long kiss.
Tears rolled from my eyes. I felt honored to be a witness of this interaction of love between a Dad and his son.
Then to add to the moment, a few seconds later, he brought their hands up to his face again, and kissed his son’s hand once more.
It was possibly one of their final moments together, and it was filled with love, and a guarantee they would see each other once again in heaven.
No goodbyes…rather a, “I’ll see you there when it’s my turn.”
All because…God gave us His Son, Jesus, who is the greatest gift ever given to those who believe in Him.
John 3:16-19New International Version (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
All because...God loves!
