Every night we pray. Simon is starting to ask some deep questions.
Simon: I want to see Jesus. How do I see him?
Me: Well Jesus is in heaven with God. You get to see him when you die.
Simon: But I want to see Jesus alive. How can I see Jesus while he’s still alive?
Me: I don’t know. That is a good question we can ask pastor Jon.
[confers with pastor]
Me: I asked Pastor Jon your question. When Jesus was alive he could only see a few people. not all of the people. So he went to heaven so the Holy Spirit could come and live in everybody.
Simon: But I don’t want the Holy Spirit to see everybody. I only want Jesus to see me while he’s alive.
We sang a new song in church and Simon has been singing it at home.
Simon: Better is one day in your courts, Better is one day in your house. Better is one day in your courts.
Me: Do you know what that song means Simon?
Me: It means that spending one day in God’s house is better than any other day. It is the very best day.
Simon: How do I go there?
Me: Well, God’s house is in heaven.
Simon: I want to go there when I am alive with Jesus and see the dead people.
