Like a Child
Posted on December 31, 2008

Mark 10:13-16 (NASB95)

13 And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked them.

14 But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

15 “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”

16 And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.

 

Have you ever held a child that trusts you? It is hard to describe that feeling. The child seems to melt in your arms. Completely relaxing and cuddling close. They feel completely safe and secure in your arms. In some cases so much so they will drift off to sleep. They are completely unconcerned and trusting of you. They are as close as they can get to you. They do not pull back they are completely given to your embrace and protection. Do you remember?

 

That is the picture Christ is using here to describe the faith and trust necessary to enter the Kingdom. He says unless we rest in Him, give ourselves completely to His protection, not pulling back and completely given to His embrace we will not enter the Kingdom.

 

As we end the year and look at the clean slate of the new one, what prevents us from yielding to Christ in that way? The first thing that that leaps to my mind is that the little children do not have any responsibilities, like other little children or big ones for which they have to provide food and shelter. However, Christ was speaking to people who had small children. So what does that mean for each of us? How do we enter into that level of trust and confidence in Christ?
