Childlike faith

One day, Jesus’ disciples came to Him with a very serious question. They asked Him, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”

Here is what Jesus did in Matthew 18: 2-3: He called a little child and had him stand among them, and He said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Isn’t that interesting; children are all trying to grow up, and wanting to do grownup things, yet Jesus is saying that we grownups need to become like little children!

Jesus is talking about how we all need to have childlike faith. He goes on to say in verse: 4, “Therefore whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Sometimes it can be real hard for people to humble themselves and admit they need Jesus in their lives. However, if we don’t, we will never enter the kingdom of God.

Children, with their childlike...

There is a great story in 2 Kings, Chapter 5, about a commander of the army of the King of Aram. This soldier’s name was Naaman. He was a valiant soldier and was accredited to many victories, but he was afflicted with leprosy.

One time during a raid, his army took captive a young girl from Israel and she became a servant of Naaman’s wife. One day, knowing of Naaman’s illness, she said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.” The prophet’s name was Elisha.

Naaman went to the king and told him what the girl had said and the king encouraged Naaman to go and see this man of God. When Elisha heard that Naaman wanted to see him, he sent word saying, “Have the man come to me and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel.”

So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house, but Elisha had a messenger come out and say to Naaman, “Go wash ...

Be of good cheer

In Nehemiah 8:10 we read, “Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Have you ever noticed that when you are sad or depressed, you have little energy? Sadness drains us of our energy and weakens us.

There is no place in the Bible where God says He wants us sad and weak. Instead, throughout the His Word, He tells us that He wants us to have joy everlasting and to be of good cheer, and when we are up and full of joy, we have more strength and energy. Everywhere Jesus went during His ministry, He spread joy.

In Matthew 4:23-24, Jesus went throughout Galilee teaching in the synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness among the people. News about Him spread all over Syria, and the people brought to Him ALL who were ill with various diseases - those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those ...
