A Pleasing Sacrifice
My wife and I have given our son to the Lord. We have placed him on the alter of the Lord, and now the Lord is accepting Him as a sweet smelling sacrifice. He is coming to consume him with His holy fire and draw our son near to His own heart. My Lord and King Himself will be His father. Even now He is filling him with life and love and wisdom. My Lord is preparing him, drawing him, and teaching him to fulfill His calling - to be in Christ and serve His purposes.
I must discipline myself and empty myself more. I must train more, run faster and further, and fight harder. I must center my life in Christ and allow the Holy Spirit to flow unhindered through me to all my family for one day my son will run past me and press on further and further into the boundless love of Christ for the glory of God.
