In a heartwarming display of devotion, a 3-year-old takes center stage during a church service, delivering an earnest rendition of “Gethsemane”.
Easter Sunday sets the backdrop as the brave young girl, adorned in a pink dress, black shoes, and neatly braided hair, steps up to the microphone. With confidence and innocence, she embarks on her worship song to God. The chorus resonates:
Jesus loves me
So He went willingly
The gospel’s profound message, sung through the lips of a child, magnifies the role of God as our Father. His boundless love surpasses even the pride that swells within parents witnessing their child’s solo performance. But His pride extends far beyond this, embracing us in all our imperfection.
Our offerings to Him pale in comparison to His grace and mercy. In His benevolence, we find the ability to give back for all He has bestowed upon us. His worthiness knows no bounds. Through this child’s performance, we glimpse His truth and remember that our small gestures of praise, though seemingly insignificant, hold immense beauty in His eyes.
As the girl concludes her song, a joyous smile graces her face, met with the exuberant cheers of the congregation. Her song of faith ignites inspiration, much like Jesus’ journey to Gethsemane and the cross, where sin and death were conquered for believers. Eternal glory be to God, and let us extol Him for this precious soul.
As a testament to the power of faith, these words echo in our hearts: “and said to him, ‘Do you hear what these children are saying?’ Jesus replied, ‘Yes, have you never read: You have prepared praise from the mouths of infants and nursing babies?'” (Matthew 21:16).
