Big Brother Love

This weekend we had fun with friends visiting the Sponge Docks. The kids were SO excited. Everything Madi picked up Aaron did too. Every word Madi said, Aaron said too. Every move Madi made, Aaron did too.

Aaron trying to make the same face.

I couldn’t help but notice the excitement little man had for being just like his big sister. More than where we were and what we were doing, my little 2 year old was consumed with being just like his big sister. As a parent, it was a joy to watch.

I wonder if God feels that joy when his children (us) try to take after our big brother (Christ)? The Bible says that when we become Christ-followers we take on the role of brothers and sister. Jesus Christ is our big brother (Matthew 12:50). 

Do you look up to your big brother? Are you wanting to be just like him? Say what he says? Move like he moved? Oh what joy it must bring out Heavenly Father when we are consumed with being just like our brother Jesus Christ.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16-17
