Parents, can you imagine what a glorious moment it would be to have your children touched by God himself? Bro. Jeff brings out interesting parallels between the account of Jesus touching the children and the attitudes regarding children today. We learn from the children who is in Heaven and how to get to Heaven.
Matthew 19:13-15 (KJV)
13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
2 Samuel 12:23
23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
