Summary: "For the kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children"

The Gift of Childlike Faith Pt.2

Mark 10:14-16

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never experience it.” Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. (Video)

2019 The Year of ….

Today I want to continue to look at this statement of Jesus

For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. Unless you see God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never experience it.“

We make this relation with Lord so complicated

Stressed out

Rules regulations

We make it hard sometimes

From Our Kids

I know how much I love something by how hard it would be to lose it.

“What If I don’t want to grow up”

A Christian should only have one spouse. It’s called monotony.

Noah’s wife was called Joan of Ark

Solomon had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

Joshua led the Israelites in the battle of Geritol

The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple

It says “the Lord thy God is One.” But I think He is a lot older than that.

The epistles were the wives of the apostles

Jesus had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a yucky vegetable after him

When you get scared, God will bring you your blanket. He said the Comforter would come

The Bible says for my mommy and daddy to teach me -Wow they must talk to God

We looked at What was Jesus meaning when He said

“to see the Kingdom in the simplicity of a child?” and

What does it mean that unless

we approach the kingdom of God

as a child will never EXPERIENCE IT

(the presence, the provision, power of God)

How does a child look at things?

How does a child look at their relationship with the Lord?


As I said

So many have the wrong

understanding of God

Old man


Too busy- except for super spiritual people

Waiting to discipline people

Hard and demanding

The definition of childlike






We asked

Is it possible to approach life with childlike faith?

With all the complications of life

how do we get there or get back there?

We saw the answer is


Keep It Simple Saint


To see God the way a child does




Unaffected by challenges


The Word says

Ps 46:10 “Be still , and know that I am God;

Phil 1: 6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ

Heb 13:5-6 God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.“ So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. helper; I will not be afraid.

John 10:10 I have come that they may have life , and have it to the full

Matt 11:28-30“ Come to me , all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Isa 66:13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you;

We looked at

How to live in childlike faith (Faithing like a child )

The simple childlike version

(Good News To share with others)

We saw Seeing God… “the childlike version” remember

God is not angry with us

One of the greatest challenges I face with people

Lam 3:25: The Lord is not angry but loving to those whose hope is in Him

1 John 4:15-16 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love .

Our sins are completely forgiven

Past and future

He doesn’t condemn us when we fail

It’s not about what you’ve done but what He’s done

Rom 8:1-2

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.

Col 1:13-14 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

It’s not about “Religion” but “Relationship”

We don’t have to “do” or “not do” to receive His love

Eph 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by your efforts , so that no one can boast.
