Bible Verse of The Week


Matthew 18:2-6

He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea

 
Isn’t it awesome? That we are the children of the King of all Kings? Beautiful isn’t it? Almost unbelievable too… who would’ve thought, that sinners like us would be welcomed into the arms of God?
This bible verse is really really beautiful. In here it says everything you need to know with “How to have a relationship with God”.
It is clearly mentioned here that “Unless you change and become like a little child”…  you might be thinking, why does Jesus want us to become like little children?
Why don’t we describe children, shall we?  Children… they,
  • Don’t know the difference between right and wrong
  • They are pretty loud and annoying
Well yes, kids are like that, but don’t you think that they are too young to understand what they are doing? Let us describe children again. Kids are…
  • Loving
  • Willing to learn
  • Dependent
  • Determined
  • Optimistic

Jesus wants us to love unconditionally, He wants us to be dependent on Him, He wants us to be like children… Do you think that children need to work hard to earn the love of their parents? If you have a child, would you want him or her to work hard to earn your love? No! Of course not. You want them to know that you love them, even if they work hard or not.

Now tell me, what kind of relationship do you want with your child?

You know what God wants? He wants to be your Father. Ever heard the story of the “prodigal son”?

The father, of course, represents God and the son represents us, YOU and ME…

Will you have a relationship with your Father by doing lots and lots rituals? Would you be happy if your son/daughter was working hard (even though he/she is working hard for you) wouldn’t you want to spend time with him/her more than work? God wants the same thing, He wants to spend more time with YOU, and how do you do that? By praying, reading the bible, and going to church.

God just wants to spend time with you… another reason why God wants us to be like children, because children don’t work, which gives us so much time to spend with Him. ❤
