Abigail on Jesus the Runner

For devotions tonight, we sang “O, For a Thousand Tongues” and read a short devotional written by Joni Ericsson Tada. Afterwords, Abigail began asking about heaven, and whether Joni would be able to run again. This lead to a discussion on our passage to heaven after death versus the later resurrection of our bodies… at least, that’s where I thought I was going when Abigail piped up:

Abigail: “After we get our new bodies in heaven, will Jesus still be able to run more faster than us?”

Jay: “Quite frankly, Abigail, I’m not exactly sure how fast Jesus can run.”

Abigail: “Faster than lightning!”

If you are wanting an explanation, you’re in luck, because we did too. After recovering a bit, Tricia asked: “What makes you think he can run faster than lightning?”

Abigail: “Daddy told me. He said he made the lightning.”

And there you have it.
