Childlike Faith

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3

Do you have the faith of a child? Have you given up on your hopes and dreams for the future? Jesus taught us unless we become like a child again, we can’t enter the kingdom of Heaven. So what can we learn from children? Are children born with hate, violence? No these are learned behaviors from the world, unless we become reborn again (John 3:3) and renew are minds (Romans 12:2) we can’t become Children of God

Jesus also taught us that children are the greatest in Heaven (Matthew 18:4) , why? Because God resists the proud and exalts the humble (James 4:6) As we grow older we fall for lies of Satan and grow cold. Our priorities become money and we fall for his traps of addictions and sin.

We must relearn as children that Love is the most important thing. What does every child want? They want to be loved by their parents. Love is the fulfilment of Gods law (Galatians 5:14) and Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:8) So remember what Jesus said you can’t seen the Kingdom of Heaven unless your reborn again (John 3:3)

We can learn a lot from Children, don’t lose your childlike Faith, your childlike Hope, and most importantly childlike Love in Jesus Name Amen

    John 14:21-24 Jesus said that the ones who have his commandments and obey them are the ones who love him. Children always submit their will to their father and obey him. They love him with all the hearts. They obey because they want to please their father. At times they obey because they are chastised or fear punishment.Paul said in Hebrews that God chastises all of his children. Children want to be just like their dad when they grow up. In their tender years they idolize him. Just a few more child-like traits to add.
