Last night we were looking again at Galatians and God's mighty act in the justification of sinners. My son was trying his very best to be still, since I told him if he could answer some big important questions about the gospel, I'd give him $1. This particular study asked us to imagine being arrested for breaking into a store. The police show up at our front door, along with the business owner, and the owner yells, "That's him! He is the one who stole from me!" You say you're innocent, but the police bring you in anyway and you stand before the judge a few days later ready to defend yourself. You tell the judge about how you are innocent, but it turns out that the judge is omnipresent, and he knows you broke into the store because he saw you do it. At this point my boy is totally shocked, and says, "You mean I did it? I really broke into a store?" Yes. You did it and not only did you do it but you lied to the judge about it, and he knows everything. You are a criminal. "Oh no, why did I DO that?" he said. I went on to ask him what the judge should do now that he was caught breaking into the store, and he rightly responded that he should be punished. I then asked him how he could get out of all this trouble, and he didn't know. He was ready to go to jail. Then I told him that it turns out this judge who is all knowing, all powerful, and all wise, was also a judge who was slow to get angry, and loved his people with an everlasting love. I told him that the judge would take this crime of breaking into the store, bring Jesus in, and punish Jesus for it in his place. My son said, "That's not fair, why would he punish Jesus? He didn't do anything!" He was led away from thinking of himself as an innocent victim of circumstance and was caused to look at Christ and the wrath he took upon himself on the cross in his place. What a profound moment of understanding for him. Any book that makes my child freely and openly admit to being the guilty party and to Jesus being the innocent party is gold in my eyes.
And yes, he still asked for the $1.
I'm very impressed. This is basically an in-depth, verse-by-verse study of the book of Galatians for children. There's so much more here than the usual over-simplifications of the gospel that Jesus died for our sins and we should ask him into our hearts. Each reading covers a key element of the gospel. Imputation, justification, sanctification, covenants...all these and more are discussed. The concepts are clearly presented and unpacked in simple, easy to understand terms.
One of the things I love about Ms. Meade's books is that she doesn't water things down...she has a real gift for putting difficult concepts into terms that are simple enough for young children to grasp. Using her books together, I've seen my kids have several "a-ha" moments where they were able to clearly understand and articulate back to me truths that I didn't fully understand until adulthood. This book continues to follow that trend. It's engaging and meaty, perfect for family or individual use. My nine year old is using it for his personal devotional time, but I plan to go through it to discuss as a family in the near future. I highly recommend both God's Mighty Acts in Creation and God's Mighty Acts in Salvation, and I'm hopeful there will possibly be more titles in the series!
Thanks to Angie Cheatham at Crossway for providing review copies to me.
Each devotion could be used as a family worship piece, with an "As For Me and My House" section that provides discussion points and home activities from the Bible. And, unlike most devotion books that seem story driven rather than Bible driven, they each take the child through a specific segment of the Bible (the Epistle to the Galatians for this one and verses and passages relating to creation for the other, divided by day of creation into the topics light and water; land and plants; sun, moon, and stars; birds and fish; and animals and people).
(Many thanks to Crossway for providing this book for me to review. My opinions are my own.)
