God is so good, and when we realize the depth of His love for us, we are forever changed. How can we not want to share this amazing and wonderful revelation!
The majority of people ask Jesus to be their savior before the age of 12! Mike always shares how the enemy is after the children, because when a child accepts Jesus, God has them for life and that just frustrates the enemy to no end. So let’s get out there and upset the enemy some more… let’s reach the kids with the Word, get them saved, loving God, and bringing Heaven to earth.
IT IS AN HONOR AND PRIVILEGE
Matthew 18:5 “Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”
Whoever = YOU! God loves you! You are His choice, He is delighted with you.
Receives = welcomes, loves, acknowledges, takes in.. with His same heart of unconditional love. Ask God and He will give you His love to give to them.
One child like this = a child needing love, blessing, instruction, and security… each child is important to God.
In my name = Jesus… savior, friend, God’s Son.
Receives me = by ministering to the little ones we “receive” Jesus… He is invited in and we honor Him by loving and teaching the little children. It is a win/win/win situation.
How amazing that God would entrust to us the most precious things to His heart, children. God will give you the love, grace and ability to lead the little ones to Him. I will share more about the HOW in the next blog.
Again, thank you for being the “whoever” in the lives of the little ones. It pleases Papa God’s heart, and it is so much fun!
Blessings and joy,
The role of parents and the church in spiritual growth for children
