As A Little Child
Jesus tells us that we must receive the Kingdom of God as a little child or not be allowed in at all. This really tells us how we must look at our salvation. It is not what we do, as in good works. It is totally dependent on our Saviour Jesus Christ and our faith and trust in Him will we see the Kingdom of God. We must see it as a gift from our Heavenly Father. We must be as children with those wide eyes open not knowing what is coming . Just knowing that it is good and safe and pure. Not looking at it as though we deserve it or that it is something that we have done. The gift of eternal life is given to each of us freely without merit when we put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. It is so simple and easy to do. Just trust in Him with all your heart and strength and soul. Then live a life of contentment knowing we are safe and secure in our Fathers arms. He will never forsake us or let us go. We have to look outside of these fleshly bodies and look towards the heavens. It will be a glorious time when we see Jesus. Oh praise His dear name.
13: And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14: But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15: Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16: And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
