More Than Enough

In 2006 I wrote a post asking What kind of God do you worship? I was reminded of that post as I thought of my personal answer to the question this evening. I was watching The Testaments: Of One Fold and One Shepherd with my kids and it really hit home in the final scene.

In the scene we have a father, Helam, and son, Jacob, talking as they observe Christ among the Nephite people. Jacob is describing the Savior to Helam who has been blinded because of an accident while helping Jacob.

Jacob: You have looked for the Messiah all your life and now He is here and because of me you cannot leap for joy. You cannot even see Him.

Helam: But you can see Him. And that is enough.

At this moment the hand of Christ reaches to Jacob’s shoulder and Jacob moves so that Christ can heal Helam’s eyes.

Helam had been satisfied that his son could see the Savior, but the Savior allowed him to see as well. That is the kind of God I worship – the kind who is willing to give us more than enough of our heart’s desire if we will persist in seeking Him even more than we seek the things of the world.
