The Kingdom of God is like a gift to those who are willing to become like a child, because a child doesn’t expect to earn it. So they don’t fear being rejected from it and they have enough untainted faith & hope to not limit it or withhold from it. A child has the boldness to obtain the kingdom of God (probably from the lack of experience with failure and disappointment). A child would never think that it’s possible for them to own or alter God’s things in His kingdom because they know that they are too little and it’s too big, but a child will love & desire to linger in the wonder of it. While we are called to be soldiers, watchmen, a terror to evil works, a proclaimer & defender of the truth, we have to also find a way to stay humble and teachable enough to stay HIS little boy/girl. That same softness in us is what makes us his bride. If a wife loses her softness with her husband, she will begin to lose his willingness to be vulnerable to her and vice-versa. I want to never outgrow the wonder of the truth and the God that saved me. I love Him just as He is and I’m so glad that He will never change and if He could fail, it would be easy to forgive Him and it would be an honor to help and restore Him. Oh how He loves you and me!
Luke 18:16-17 Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
