WORLDWIDE INTERNET EVANGELISM

JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF MEN

FROM UNSAVED TO CHILDREN OF GOD

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Jesus described what the very character of a Christian should be. Like a little child! Energetic, happy, innocent children!  After all a Christian is a child of God.

 I have never subscribed to a belief that many Christians maintain about children saying that they are born in sin with a carnal nature. Why do they not believe Jesus? Why does Jesus make such a big point about this subject? Is because He knows how adult carnal nature thinks (Hey! God created me this way)!

But Jesus teaches just the opposite about little children. What does He say in the scriptures about this subject?

Matthew 18: 2-5 Then, Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.

“Open our eyes Lord” as the words to a certain song are most appropriate at this time. Be like a little child without bias, prejudice, and color blind. Little children always seem to enjoy the company of other children no matter who they are.

Christians desire to go to heaven but there are many people who are not saved who think they may go to heaven also because they believe themselves to be good people and there are people in this world who are downright mean and don’t have clue to what they could have from a God who loves them. Through one righteous act of Jesus the free gift came to all men cleansing them from all sin past present and future then died in their place so all me could live. The question was asked of the Apostles what men could do to be save? The answer was, “Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and you would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. God is waiting for the unsaved to give them a new robe to wear, a new body, a new name, a new home, a great reward, and a new job as they live in glory in the presence of God for eternity.

We need to be like the little children, humbling ourselves and expressing joy and kindness without bias or prejudice to those who are unsaved and as color blind as little children. By expression show the love of Jesus to every unsaved person you meet, in doing so you plant a seed for God to nurture into a productive righteous child of God.

Pray that all people will be saved to the glory of God!

I live north of San Antonio, Texas in the hill country community of Spring Branch, Texas. I have lived in Spring Branch since 1996. I occasionally teach adult Sunday School classes and preach at retirement homes on Sunday which I enjoy very much. My wife and I married in 1960 and have 3 children, and 13 grandchildren. We enjoy our home in the beautiful South Texas Hill Country where I am now retired and spend my time attending church, reading, writing, working on the internet (INOE), gardening, and photography. I believe in the Lord God Jesus Christ, His salvation by grace, His suffering and death on the cross for all men, and His resurrection to life. I pray that God will use this blog to bring people to Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen!
