Jesus called a little child to him, set him in the midst of them, and said, … Unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:2.3

A deep blue sky with gleaming sunlight spread over the lake. The upper deck of the pleasure steamer was full. I found a seat opposite a boy of about ten years of age who was sitting next to his father. The boy was watching the flight of the waterfowl, the yachts gliding past silently and our approach as we neared the island.

I handed him a gospel flyer, saying, “This is a true, exciting story of a boy of your age.” He started reading it immediately. Engrossed in what he read, he forgot his surroundings. When he had finished, he sat still, lost in thought. Suddenly he turned to his father and said, “Papa, you must read this.” It was clear that he was captivated by the story of that boy and his firm faith in Jesus Christ. Would he, too, give Him his heart?

Christian literature is often brushed aside thoughtlessly and thrown away unread. The motives that hinder people from believing are manifold: prejudices towards the Bible, a determined rejection of the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, but also pride, self-righteousness or indifference.

Yet God wants all to be saved by turning to Him and believing in His Son Jesus Christ. God sent Christ to earth and to the cross as the atonement for our sins. But unless “we become as little children”, if we refuse to believe what Holy Scripture says, we shall not “enter the kingdom of heaven”, for we shall not be saved.

Today’s reading: Joshua 14:1-15 · 1 Corinthians 12:1-13
