Oh son, I love you so much!
You delight my heart and bring me joy.
Being with you dad, is just the best thing ever.
Let’s create more, just like you son.
Fantastic idea dad!
You’ve given me so much, can I share with them?
Not even conceived, yet I see each one…
and how I love them.
But son, I don’t want little robots.
I’m giving them the choice,
they can decide to love me or not.
I’ll make it easy:
I’ll create a fabulous world for them to live in
with trees, mountains and flowers,
and a sky full of stars.
Every evening I’ll paint the sky with orange, pink and gold.
Each morning will be greeted with blazes of silver and choral trilling.
I see dad….
The choice to decide is dangerous.
They’ll want to please themselves and rebel against you, won’t they?
Yes son, they will and they will be separated from me.
But I want to show them my love.
They are precious –
I want them to understand what love looks like, what it is.
How can we show them?
Dad, they will deserve death for rebelling against you.
I will die in their place and become the Way to you.
The greatest love is to die for a friend –
I will die for my enemies.
Son, I will accept your sacrifice on their behalf.
You take their place, and
I will lavish the love I have for you on them.
I will make them co-heirs with you of all that I have.
They cannot even imagine the wonders and pleasures in store for them!
I will pursue them with my goodness and love at every turn.
We have made our decision.
Now it is time for them to choose.
Today is the day of acceptance, now is the time of salvation.
