Childlike Heart

December 28, 2015

Matthew 19:14 NET … But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not try to stop them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

From NetBible Mt 19:14

  • * Children are a picture of those whose simple trust illustrates what faith is all about.
  • * Little children have a trusting spirit, as well as willingness to be dependent and receive from others{especially their Father} –Mt 18:3

Matthew 11:25-26 NET … At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will{well pleasing in Your sight}.

From NetBible Mt 11:25

  • * The title Lord is an important name for God, showing his sovereignty, but it is interesting that it comes next to a reference to the Father, a term indicative of God’s care.

From NetBible Mt 11:26

  • *  for this was your gracious will = was well-pleasing before You

Come to Jesus with a childlike heart
Trusting and relying only on Him
Be willing and expect to receive
=> Then you will see and know things of His kingdom!
