Let little children come to Jesus

“Some people brought their babies to Jesus for Him to place their hands on them. The disciples saw them and scolded them for doing so, but Jesus called the children to Him and said, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Remember this! Whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” (Luke 19:15-17 TEV).

There are many reasons why little children are very pleasing to Jesus. They do not have bitterness towards anyone, do everything very innocently, are very sensitive etc. Little children are very happy when their parents express their love towards them. They feel excited when they get a cup of ice cream. Many are the blessings of being with a child. Parents forget their anxieties and tiredness when they play with their little ones. Just seeing a smile on her child’s face is great happiness for a mother.

I wonder why the disciples of Jesus Christ could not know the importance of children. Parents are obliged to bring their children to Jesus for Him to place their hands on them. The people we saw in the above passage are an outstanding example of parenting of any time. The basic requirement needed in developing the fear of God in children is to bring them to the presence of the Lord in prayer. Parents must encourage their children to sit in family prayer, listen to Christian music, read their Bibles, be active in Sunday school etc. If they do so, God will take care of their children in a very wondrous way.

Today many children are going astray from God. We saw the reason from the above paragraph. If parents, at least now, could open their inner senses and bring their children to Jesus, there will be a tremendous change in the world. The world terribly needs such parents. Our world will have a safe and happy living when children brought up in godly fear will become pastors, missionaries, doctors, principals, commissioners, teachers, sportspersons, parliamentarians, social workers, financial advisors, collectors etc. The future of the world lies in the decision of today’s parents.

Whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it. We can only enter the presence of God through innocent repentance. If we do not have a child-like attitude and child-like faith in the forgiving and cleansing power of Jesus, if we do not repent with total humbleness, we can never enter God’s kingdom. But now, by God’s grace, we got that child-like faith and are citizens of God’s kingdom. There is no other good news in the whole world.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
