A Simple Verse

In Mark 10: 15 Jesus says, “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”


So how should we receive the kingdom of God? With unquestioning faith and belief just like a little child. Children are totally dependent on adults. Adults, on the other hand, are self-reliant. But to receive the kingdom of God we need to be totally dependent on God. Totally dependent and totally trusting, like children. It’s a beautiful picture and easy to understand.


According to a Gallup survey 95% of people who became Christians did so before the age of 25. At age 25, one in 10,000 will become a believer. At 35 it’s one in 50,000 and the trend continues until at age 75 the odds are just one in 700,000.


Parents, get your precious little ones to Sunday School.
