Matthew 18:3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
The Kingdom of Heaven is not just pie in the sky in the great bye and bye when you die but the Kingdom of Heaven is available right now on the earth. Jesus said the Kingdom is at hand. Paul wrote that the Kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. As a singer once wrote Oh, Heaven is a place on earth. Jesus came to give you life NOW not just when you die. A life of joy and peace. A life of adventure. A life of victory over sin and problems. How do we enter we get back to childhood faith. A simple acceptance of the fact that God will look after us and work everything out for good. Simple faith that says if God says it I will believe him. Simple faith that doesn’t bother with worry but enjoys the moment. Simple faith that lets go of offence and clings to fun. The door to the Kingdom is very low and very small. Find the kid in you again and you will find Kingdom.
Prayer Today: For childlike faith. For humility to trust God. For evidence of the Kingdom in our lives.
