Whoever Humbles Himself like this Child….

12 Apr

In Matthew 18:3 and 4, Jesus says “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.”

This has been my prayer, it does not say in the Bible to ACT like a child, but to “become like little children”. Becoming like little children in the way of humility and humbleness. I am tired of walking around in my life and being shy, or afraid to tell people about Jesus or invite them to Church. I am more afraid of how they will recieve it, or if they will think I am crazy! THAT thinking is CRAZY!!! Since when is it OKAY to be more concerned about what people think of me, then what GOD thinks of me?!?! It is my duty, and yours too if you have accepted God’s call on your life, to show child-like humility and gumption.

In Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo, it reads “What is childlike humility? It’s not the lack of intelligence, but the lack of guile. The lack of an agenda. It’s that precious, fleeting time before we have accumulated enough pride or position to care what other people might think…. It is the opposite of ignorance- is is intellectual honesty: to be willing to accept reality and to call things what they are even when is is hard.”

We must take pride in the Lord that has called us to do His will. We must take it upon our shoulders to do His work here on earth, until the day we are called home. We must NOT be afraid of people laughing at us, or whispering behind our back because we invite them to Church or talk about God around them. IT IS OUR DUTY TO BE A LIGHT in this world, not to be consumed by the darkness around us!!

I am tired of sitting and looking around at this world that nowadays has little to no faith and proclaiming “Oh, let someones else invite them to church, or pray for them” or whatever it may be. If you have accepted God as your Savior it has BECOME YOUR DUTY to SPEAK, ACT, and SHOW that!!!!

We must “become like little children” and have gumption to do what the Lord has called us to do! Nobody said when you became a Christian it would be easy, now, we have the burden of all those around us that could be going to Heaven with us, but, oh wait…. Were too ashamed of the God that we serve to INVITE people or TOUCH peoples lives the way that He has touched ours!!

WE MUST CHANGE AND BECOME LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN!!!
