Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence. Matthew 19:13-15
We often heard the Sunday School song “Jesus loves the Little Children” and it’s Biblical. As we see in the scriptures here, Jesus does love the Little Children”, and as we see in the world today, Satan hates Children, this is why all the evil agendas of this world are aimed at Children.
Jesus often says we should have “Childlike Faith” (Matthew 18:3) we need to humble ourselves, unharden our hearts and minds, and listen to The Lord. Notice when the Children were coming to Jesus, the disciples rebuked. However Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and don’t hinder them” We shouldn’t be a stumbling block for anyone coming to Christ, including children. We can actually learn alot from children, most of the time we hinder ourselves due to pride and ego.
Jesus said “For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these” think about that! While Children are often the ones who are hidden during Church services, these are the ones that Christ is seeking the most. People with a clean heart and a clean mind, not corrupted by this world. Children don’t need a lot to be content, however the older we get, the more it seems we need to satisfy ourselves. We need more possessions, we need more money, we need more friends, however nothing ever seems to fill our void. Because the void can only be filled with Christ!
Are you seeking Christ with an open heart and open mind like a Child? Or are you coming to Jesus with a bitter heart and a mind full of corruption of this world? We need to be Born Again (John 3:3) we need to be reset, we need to be renewed in our minds and not conformed to the ways of the world (Romans 12:2) We remember when the disciples were arguing over “Who was the greatest in Gods Kingdom”? Jesus pointed to a child, said “Whoever humbles themselves like this little child, is the greatest in the Kingdom of God (Matthew 18:4)
We can learn alot from children, we need to have Child-like faith in Christ, because in Christ we are Children of God, Amen!
