Matthew 18:2-4 (ASV)
2 And he called to him a little child, and set him in the midst of them,
3 and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
I know to suggest that any self respecting adult should act like a child, is not acceptable. However, you need to understand this is not an appeal to reduce your habits and behavior to that of a child. This is an appeal to posture your heart towards the will of God, and not the ways of the world. When our hearts are humbled to God’s will, it is then we are empowered to reach God’s people. And to lead them in the same manner.
What does a child like heart look like?
To act like a child and live like a christian, we must…
- be humble like a child
- have the heart of a child
- we must have the hope of a child
And guess what; The more we practice being child like at heart and not in our behavior, the more we then position ourselves to be the head and not the tail. The kingdom of heaven wont be just a world to come, it will be the world we live in right now. The bible says; Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
Lets act like a child…and live like Christians…
