A Child Kind Of Faith

A Child Kind Of Faith

Mark 10:14-15

14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

We must have child-like faith to be a part of God's Kingdom. So many
things about the Kingdom require of us a "dangerous innocence" and
genuine humility. Yet Jesus demonstrated these child-like qualities. He
wants us to travel along our religious journey as trusting children of
God, not as worldly wise theologically astute scholars. Now don't take
me wrong on this; we are not told to throw away our brains to become
Christians. However, we are taught to live in a way that is often
upside down to the world and its conventional wisdom. To do that, we
need to go back and experience the gift of salvation, the magnificence
of God, and the wonders of grace as wide-eyed, excitable children who
trust in God's ways, God's love, and God's care.

Yes we need to have "Child Like " faith because children are so accepting , so loving , so trusting, and so believing. It is hard for us to accept that , that is the way we need to believe in the day and age we live in. Simple child like faith.
