For Sihanoukville, Cambodia, Friday night small group – April 27, 2012
When my son was little, he loved to do magic tricks. I usually had no problem figuring them out, especially when he made a coin disappear by dropping it on the concrete floor. As he grew older, though, his tricks began to get a little more perplexing.
He came to me during his teenage years with a card trick I could not figure out for the life of me. He would play it on me again and again, and I would watch his every move, but I couldn’t figure out the trick.
Finally, after I made several wrong guesses, my son revealed the secret of the trick to me. After he showed me, the trick seemed so simple. What once was mysterious, suddenly became completely obvious.
This is the way God reveals the Gospel to us.
