A Childlike Faith

Luke 18:17 “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”

Few days ago, my friend shared a photo of her daughter in her own accord opening up the bible, praying and worshiping God. It is amazing to see young ones approach the throne of God with simple faith.

A childlike faith is vital for living in the kingdom of God. The religious Pharisees had complicated their faith with elaborate answers to simple questions. In this world of scheming and rationalizing, children approached Jesus with simple faith. The kingdom of God centers on a relationship between us and our Abba Father.

Faith is not primarily intellectual. It is a childlike act of trusting in Jesus. The Christian faith is not contained in theological manuscripts or complicated religious rules. It is just the simple reality that “Jesus loves me; this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to him belong; they are weak but he is strong.”

Have a great week ahead. God Bless You.

Setting the course for 2016

Hebrews 12:2 - "Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

In the race of faith we must keep constantly our eyes on Christ who is the author and perfecter of faith. The gaze of faith is focused on Jesus who has fulfilled all of the promises of God.
