Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.
It is the beginning of summer break, and one event I look forward to each summer is Vacation Bible School at my church. It is a full week of Bible stories, worship, crafts, and games. I love seeing the kid’s eyes light up as they see God’s Word coming to life through fun activities and songs.
It is usually the last day of worship that we have an invitation where kids who want to ask Jesus into their heart come forward. It is wonderful to witness this exciting event, and it usually leaves me in tears of joy.
Seeing these kids grasp the understanding that they are sinners and are in need of a Savior to ever gain access into Heaven is the highlight of VBS. They have no reservations about accepting Jesus into their life. They dive head first.
This is what Jesus was referring to when He said we are to come to Him like little children. Kids do not think about getting their life right first before coming to Jesus. They do not second guess or talk their way out of coming forward. They just act!
I pray that when the Holy Spirit prompts us we are ready and willing to hand our life over to You and receive Your wonderful love.
