Just Call Me Jax

I’d like you to meet Jax (or “Jaxion” if you ask his mom). Jax , is the 11 month old, only son, of our youth minister Nate and his wife, Kristin.

Jax likes to talk. In fact Jax likes to talk a lot. He doesn’t really use any words, but he can babble with the best. Sometimes Jax does his best to out preach me on Sundays. The louder I get … the louder he gets. I think he’s trying to tell me it’s time to finish the lesson :)

The cool thing about Jax is how he reminds me of God’s love. Here are some examples…

  • Jax’s mom and dad think he “hung the moon.” They love him with all their hearts. They take millions (no exaggeration) of pictures and send them to everyone. They are proud, proud parents. In the same way, God thinks you “hung the moon.” He loves you with all of His heart. He’s proud of you. And if He carried a wallet, your picture would be in it (Romans 8:37-39).

  • Also, there is absolutely nothing that Jax’s parents wouldn’t do for him. If he is sick, they do everything they can to help him get well. If he’s hurt, they comfort him. If he’s happy, they are happy with him. They are great parents. Just like any parents, they’d go anywhere for him and do anything for him. But did you know the Bible tells us that no matter how good the parents are, we just can’t compare to how good God is as a parent. Jesus said that as parents we don’t even compare to God as a parent. Basically, He’s out of our league (Luke 11:11-13). I like that, because I know that even the greatest parents in the world, can’t compare with how good God is as a Father. And when I see how deeply Jax’s parents love him, it helps me to remember that God loves me even more than that. Way more.

  • I also know that Jax’s parents would never let anyone or anything hurt him. They’d lay down their own lives before they’d let something hurt Jax. How much love did your Heavenly Father have for you to offer His one and only Son for you? For God so loved “the world” (that’s you) that He gave His one and only Son… (John 3:16). Jax’s parents might offer themselves, but like any parent, they’d never offer their own child (Romans 5:8). But God did. That’s love. That’s supreme love.

  • Finally, there’s not anything Jax will ever do that will make his parents stop loving him. Nothing. Just like in Luke 15 when the prodigal son left home, the father never stopped loving him. Never. Everyday the father looked for the boy. Everyday the father longed for the boy to come home. And everyday the father loved the boy. Never, ever doubt God’s love.

If we look we can see God’s love through so many things. We can even learn some lessons from a “little one.” Thanks Jax for helping me out on my blog today.

    Isn’t he just the cutest thing? I know as a Mom how much I love my children and to what lengths I would go for them and it blows my mind that is not even a thimble full of the amount of love God has for me. There is nothing better than a hug from your Mom or Grandmother because you know they love you no matter what but even that doesn’t compare to that feeling you get when your studying God’s word and you feel his Love and his arms around you.
    Have a Great Day!

    I mean, that has got to be THE CUTEST baby I’ve ever seen! Awesome blog Trey! It really is hard to imagine someone loving Jaxon more than I do, but I know God does. Nate and I have said (for about 11 months now) that you just can’t fully appreciate God’s love until you become a parent. It’s like that baby is born, and all of the sudden your eyes are opened to just how much God does love you. Amazing. Kristin

    Kristin … your little boy makes a perfect model. And I agree 100%, you get a much better understanding of God’s love when you have children of your own.
